"on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux."
"one sees clearly only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes." - Le Petit Prince
I recently reread The Little Prince and I realized that I had forgotten what a wonderful book it is. You can read what is purportedly a children's book in under an hour, and it is full of amazing quotes and sentiments. Take a break to read this and it will be the best hour of your day!
I truly feel as though I have grown up in the year and a half I've been in college more than in any other time in my life. Adults always seemed to know everything, but now that I'm growing up, I realize adults only had the answers when everything was simple. Maybe children see reality better than anyone, because their reality hasn't been clouded by the half-truths and shades of gray of adulthood; this is a major theme in The Little Prince that got me thinking.
"Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them" - The Little Prince
