A Tale of Two Cities is a classic novel by Charles Dickens. It is quite difficult to find decent quotes relating specifically to Paris and London.  I can give you a couple of quotes, but they are about Paris only.  The quotes that you ask for are below:

About Paris -

1. Along the Paris streets, the death-carts rumble, hollow and harsh. Six tumbrels carry the day’s wine to La Guillotine. All the devouring and insatiate Monsters imagined since imagination could record itself, are fused in one realization, Guillotine.

2.  I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through long years to come, I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out. . . .
I see that child who lay upon her bosom and who bore my name, a man winning his way up in that path of life which once was mine. I see him winning it so well, that my name is made illustrious there by the light of his.


3. It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest I go to than I have ever known.
