The Little Prince

One of my favorite books as a child was "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint Exupery. This books has a timeless charm narrating the story of a young boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behavior through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the book.

"What makes the dessert beautiful' said the little prince 'is that it hides a well..."

"The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart."

"When someone blushes, doesn't that mean yes?"

"But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."

"When you discover an island that belongs to nobody, it is yours."

"Where are the people?" resumed the little prince at last. "It's a little lonely in the desert..."
"It is lonely when you're among people, too," said the snake.

"One only understands the things one tames..."

Have a beautiful day!!
