An inspiring book.

“Straight ahead does not take anyone very far…”

“To forget a friend is sad. Not everyone has had a friend.”

“Flowers are weak, they are naive. They reassure themselves as best they can. They think they are being frightening, with their thorns. “

“If someone loves a flower, of which there is only one example among all the millions and millions of stars, that is enough to make him happy when he looks up at the night sky.”

“Naturally. When you find a diamond that belongs to nobody, it belongs to you. When you discover an island that belongs to nobody, it belongs to you. When you are the first to have an idea, you take out a patent on it: it belongs to you. And the stars belong to me, because nobody before me ever thought of owning them.”

“he is preoccupied with something other than himself.”

“It is lonely when you’re among people, too.”

“People no longer have the time to understand anything.”

“You will understand that yours is, after all, unique in the world.”

“You are beautiful, but you are empty.”

“You can only see things clearly with your heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.”

“People have forgotten the truth, but you must not forget. You become responsible , forever, for what you have tamed.”

“One is never happy where one is”

“Only the children know what they are looking for. They waste their time over a rag doll, and it becomes very important to them; and if it’s taken away from the, they cry.”

“Whether it is a house, or stars, or the desert, what makes their beauty is invisible!”

“People leap into express trains, but they no longer know what they’re looking for. So they get agitated and go round in circles.”

“you run the risk of a few tears when you allow yourself to be tamed.”

“Everyone’s attention wanders sooner or later, and once is enough!”

These quotes come from the book, The Little Prince. When I first started reading this book, I was kinda bored by it but as I continue to read on, I found that it is actually very interesting. Somehow, the people that the little prince met seems to reflect the people around us. And I find the book to be really inspiring. It teaches me a lot of things that we, as a grown up has forgotten. Things such as judging someone or something by its value but never taking the trouble to understand the inner beauty of it, things that each of us have are unique because it belongs only to you so we should take care of it, never be too obsessed with materialistic stuffs, etc. I’m now currently searching for the sequel book. I believe that it is going to be as good as the first one.
