All grown-ups were children first. (But few remember it).

I am very fond of sunsets. Come, let us go look at a sunset...

"Where are the people?" resumed the little prince at last. "It's a little lonely in the desert..."
"It is lonely when you're among people, too," said the snake.

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.

Only children know what they are looking for.

"What makes the desert beautiful," says the little prince, "is that somewhere it hides a well."

"That is the hardest thing of all. It is much harder to judge yourself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself, it's because you're truly a wise man."

"People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for..."
"They don't find it," I answered.
"And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."
"Of course," I answered.
And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart."

I love the Little Prince, but I don't have a copy of it. I should probably get one and read it to Tessa. I'm trying to read some of the classics to her, along with some of the books that were written when I was a kid, like the Fudge series by Judy Blume.
