The Little Prince.

I've recently come across this book I had in my attic that I read as a child and I used to watch the animated series "The Adventures of The Little Prince" religiously on tv. I brought it down from the attic and decided to read it again because I remembered it being good. But I forgot just how good and just how much I loved it. It's seriously the sweetest and one of the most beautiful things ever written. You all need to own a copy of this book and read it every once in a while to not lose sight of that which is important. And then read it to your kids one day.. and so on. : )))))

Ostensibly a children's book, it makes several profound and idealistic points about life and love. In it, Saint-Exupéry imagines himself stranded in the Sahara Desert, thousands of kilometers away from inhabited places, where he meets a young extra-terrestrial (though entirely human-appearing) prince. In their conversations, the author reveals his own views about the follies of mankind and the simple truths that people seem to forget as they grow older. The essence of the book is contained in the famous line uttered by the fox to the Little Prince: "On ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur, l'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux" (It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye). There are also two other main points in the book, both spoken by the fox. They are: "You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed" and "It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important".
