Quotes from The little Prince

The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) - a timeless soul, discovering the wonders of the universe with us. In his innocent eyes, we see the magic of childhood and the wisdom of an old spirit. His journey takes us to the stars, but more importantly, to the deepest secrets of the heart. With every word, he touches our souls and helps us realize the essential in life. The Little Prince teaches us that what is essential is invisible to the eye and that we only truly see with the heart. May his message always remind us to cherish the precious things in life and embrace simplicity.

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Grown-ups love figures. When you tell them you've made a new friend they never ask you any questions about essential matters.
They never say to you "What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?"
Instead they demand "How old is he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make?" Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.

"What makes the desert beautiful," said the little prince, "is that somewhere it hides a well."
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 Leon Werth
When he was a little boy
You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.
You see, one loves the sunset when one is so sad.
I must endure the presence of a few caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies.
Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
