Cruel and Lovely

"It was a cruel city, but it was a lovely one, a savage city, yet it had such tenderness, a bitter, harsh, and violent catacomb of stone and steel and tunneled rock, slashed savagely with light, and roaring, fighting a constant ceaseless warfare of .men and of machinery; and yet it was so sweetly and so delicately pulsed, as full of warmth, of passion and of love as it was full of hate."
Thomas Wolfe, The Web and the Rock
