Antoine de Saint-Exupéry quote #305 from The Little Prince

She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her... I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent But I was too young to know how to love her...

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry quote #178 from The Little Prince

Please-tame me he said.I want to very much the little prince replied. But I have not much time. I have friends to discover and a great many things to understand.One only understands the things that one tames said the fox. Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the shops. But there is no shop anywhere where one can buy friendship and so men have no friends any more. If you want a friend tame me.What must I do to tame you asked the little prince.You must be very patient replied the fox. First you will sit down at a little distance from me-like that-in the grass. I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings. But you will sit a little closer to me every day...

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry quote #191 from The Little Prince

Youre beautiful but youre empty...One couldnt die for you. Of course an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose all on her own is more important than all of you together since shes the one Ive watered. Since shes the one I put under glass since shes the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since shes the one for whom I killed the caterpillars except the two or three butterflies. Since shes the one I listened to when she complained or when she boasted or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since shes my rose.
