Monuments to experiments in love! (Paris)

For anyone who ever wondered "WHY PARIS?" - Here's a brilliant answer!

"... that's why Morrison is not an anomaly here. He is not out of place here. All of the people buried here, the famous ones anyway -- Oscar Wilde was certainly a rock star. All the people buried here were in some way the glitterati of their time. Morrison -- he came to Paris looking for something that he felt was particular about Paris, which is this tradition of poetry and also of experiment. Experiment in Art. Experiments in love. I suppose you could say from the very first ones we saw there.... You had De Musset and Colette. You had the very earliest ones -- Heloise and Abelard -- but for all of them, all the monuments you could say are monuments to experiments in love."
