"Do you notice the variegated splendour
of the walls and windows?
It looks as if Genius
had followed the caprices of a child,
in the adornment of these singular temples."

- Hans Christian Andersen

"An English child in Venice, on seeing the Place St Mark
for the first time, is said to have asked,
'Pray Mama, are people allowed to see this every day,
or only on Sunday?'"

- William Dean Howells
