The Little Prince

This world is very complicated and people always believe what they see on the surface. However, the most amazing things are invisible, you have to use your heart to feel it.

Recently, I have been reading The Little Prince for a while. The reason that I keep reading slowly and carefully because I want to deeply understand the value of what the Little Prince says.

This blog I want to share some of my favorite quotes from The Little Prince.

Here is my secret. It’s quite simple: One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.

This is quite simple and elegant theory for humanity. The truth is people love to trust their eyes and believe what they see. However, the most essential is from people’s heart.

On the way of the journey the little prince had, he met a beautiful and proud flower rose. She is the one Little Prince spent a lot of time with. He killed the caterpillars for her, he put her under glass, he listened to her all the time when she complained.

When the Little Prince tells this story to fox, fox said

“People have forgotten this truth,” the fox said. “But you mustn’t forget it. You become responsible forever for what you’ve tamed. You’re responsible for your rose…”

During our different stages of life, we have different friends. We keep our memories of them in our minds forever, however, for some reason or another, the people always leave.

But, it’s the time you spent with your friends, family, people you loved. And that makes them so important and unique to you.

“What makes the desert beautiful?” the little prince said, “is that it hides a well somewhere…”
