I ask the indulgence of the children who may read this book for dedicating it to a grown-up. I have a serious reason: he is the best friend I have in the world. I have another reason: this grown-up understands everything, even books about children. I have a third reason: he lives in France where he is hungry and cold. He needs cheering up. If all these reasons are not enough, I will dedicate the book to the child from whom this grown-up grew. All grown-ups were once children– although few of them remember it. And so I correct my dedication:

To love or have loved, that is enough. Ask nothing further. There is no other pearl to be found in the dark folds of life.0
You who suffer because you love, love still more. To die of love, is to live by it.0
If I speak, I am condemned.
If I stay silent, I am damned!
You ask me what forces me to speak? a strange thing; my conscience.0
Life's great happiness is to be convinced we are loved.0
A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in--what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.0
He was fond of books, for they are cool and sure friends.0
