"Amsterdam was a great surprise to me. I had always thought of Venice as the city of canals; it had never entered my mind that I should find similar conditions in a Dutch town."

(James Weldon Johnson)

"In Amsterdam the water is the mistress and the land the vassal. Throughout the city there as many canals and drawbridges as bracelets on a gypsy's bronzed arm."

(Felix Marti-Ibanez)
