“And Barcelona. You should see Barcelona…It is all still comic opera. First it was the paradise of the crackpots and the romantic revolutionists. Now it is the paradise of the fake soldier. The soldiers who like to wear uniforms, who like to strut and swagger and wear red-and-black scarves. Who like everything about war except to fight. Valencia makes you sick and Barcelona makes you laugh.” – Ernest Hemingway

“We crossed spacious streets, with building resembling palaces, in La Rambla promenade; the shops were well illuminated and there was movement and life… I did not decide to go to sleep, even though I wished to, so I could rise early and contemplate, in daylight, this city, unknown to me: Barcelona, capital of Catalonia.” – Hans Christian Andersen

“Barcelona, archives of courtesy, shelter of the foreigners, hospital of the poor, father-land of the brave , vengeance of the offended and pleasant correspondence of firm friendship, and in site, and in beauty, unique.” – Miguel de Cervantes

FC Barcelona Quotes

If you are headed to Barcelona, you might appreciate some FC Barcelona quotes:

“FC Barcelona is the national team of Catalonia.” – Carles Puyol

“Barcelona are my favourite team in Spain, let’s put it that way.” – Frank Lampard

“I think Barcelona and the Spanish national teams have been good for soccer because there are a lot of teams that come up playing from the back: with the goalie, the defense, moving up a defender to midfield, playing attacking soccer. I think fans want to see that. They want to see beautiful soccer, a spectacle, and Barcelona does that.” – Xavi

“Everyone’s got unfinished business with Barcelona. They’re the greatest team in the world.” – Frank Lampard

“I was captain in Atletico at 19, playing in the same team as Demetrio Albertini, who won three Champions Leagues, and Sergi Barjuan from Barcelona, who had won everything, and they were 32, 33. I was a kid as captain, so I wasn’t the real captain, just a kid learning from them.” – Fernando Torres

“One thing I’ve done in my life is train year-round to compete at anything, anything. I’ve got an invitation now to maybe be on the karate team for the Barcelona Olympics. I’m debating whether I want to do that. I just love to compete, and I want to win.” – Herschel Walker

“I am a believer in passing the ball on the ground, I was lucky to be part of teams like that at Arsenal, with the French national team and with Monaco and at Barcelona. I know you can win in other ways, but I believe that is the way football should be played.” – Thierry Henry

“To me, doing the Olympics in 1992 in Barcelona for NBC, just seeing the Dream Team take the floor, was a thrill for me. I don’t think there was another team in any sport with that high level of athletes playing together.” – Marv Albert

“A system depends on the players you have. I played 4-3-3 with Ajax, 2-3-2-3 with Barcelona and a 4-4-2 with AZ. I’m flexible. The philosophy stays the same though. I don’t think that you can adapt it to every possible situation. You need the right mindset, and it depends on how the players see the coach and vice versa. The coach is the focal point of the team but you need to have an open mind, and so do all the players. Everyone needs to work together to achieve a common goal.” — Louis Van Gaal

“When you play a team with as much attacking power as Barcelona and you restrict them to one shot on target in the second leg, you are doing something right. Have the best football team gone through? Yes. Have the best organised team gone through? No.” — Jamie Redknapp

“I don’t know if Barcelona have ever gone to a place like the Britannia Stadium and suffered the kind of onslaught from Tony Pulis’ team of long throws and free-kicks or been up to a place like Blackburn and been beaten up by their long ball into the box.” — Andy Gray


Gaudi Quotes

Gaudi is one of the best architects of all time. Here are some of the best Gaudi Quotes that you might like to use for instagram captions with his architecture.

Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator. Copiers do not collaborate. Because of this, originality consists in returning to the origin.” ― Antoni Gaudí

“Anything created by human beings is already in the great book of nature.” – Antoni Gaudi

“There are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature. Therefore, buildings must have no straight lines or sharp corners.” – Antoni Gaudi

“Color in certain places has the great value of making the outlines and structural planes seem more energetic.” – Antoni Gaudi

“Nothing is art if it does not come from nature.” – Antoni Gaudi

“Originality implies a return to the origins, original is returning to the simplicity of the first solutions.” – Antoni Gaudi

“In the Sagrada Familia, everything is providential.” – Antoni Gaudi

“Copiers do not collaborate.” – Antoni Gaudi

“The expiatory church of La Sagrada Família is made by the people and is mirrored in them. It is a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people.” – Antoni Gaudi

“Nothing is invented, for its written in nature first.”― Antoni Gaudí

“There is no reason to regret that I cannot finish the church. I will grow old but others will come after me. What must always be conserved is the spirit of the work, but its life has to depend on the generations it is handed down to and with whom it lives and is incarnated.” – Antoni Gaudi
