The Little Prince Quotes
What water does the little prince refer to? This water is not from a Saharan well in the wastes of the desert, but the water of a village well with rim, pulley, and bucket. This well is a place of life; the cord connects to the water contained in the depths of mother earth. Here the water is something else than just refreshing because it was born from the walk under the stars, the song of the pulley, and the effort of the arms. It is good for the heart.
The Little Prince is a poetic tale, with watercolour illustrations by the author, in which a pilot stranded in the desert meets a young prince fallen to Earth from a tiny asteroid. The story is philosophical and includes social criticism, remarking on the strangeness of the adult world. The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart. All grown-ups were once children, but only few of them remember it. And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Growing up is not the problem, forgetting is!
quotes from The Little Prince: 'Men have no more time to understand anything. Of what moment now was my hammer, my bolt, or thirst, or death? On one.
