The Little Prince, 1943, Antoine de St-Exupéry (French: ”Le Petit Prince”)
Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.
You risk tears if you let yourself be tamed.
It’s the time you waste on your rose that makes your rose so important.
