Hey Amsterdam, they say you've changed, Hey Amsterdam, you can not do more good,
but whoever says that is not an Amsterdammer, as Amsterdam
You're just like then.
Hey Amsterdam, you're just like then.
from Drukwerk, 'Hey Amsterdam'
Of all cities Athens alone is even greater than her fame. She needs no poet to sing her praises; every land and every sea can furnish proofs of her enterprise and success. Her enemies when defeated are not disgraced; her subjects confess that she is worthy to rule them.
from Thucydides, 'The Peloponnesian War'
