The Little Prince


Whenever I want to travel to an imaginary place, I read this book; it takes me there. One of the greatest books ever written.

“What makes the desert beautiful,” said the little prince, “is that somewhere it hides a well…”

"All men have the stars," he answered, "but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travellers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they were wealth. But all the stars are silent. You--you alone--will have the stars as no one else has them--"

“You have hair like the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat…”

LadyCat, be sure and get one for yourself also.:) Thanks so much for your visits and comments...and for the compliment. My blog is always changing. I know I should leave it alone, but that wouldn't be me if I did. Maybe one day.:) xOx

Gail, thank you! Always nice to see you. xOx

Gypsywoman, life is kinder, sweeter, loving, and so much more mysterious if seen through the eyes of a child. I still enjoy reading children's books, and still have some of my favorites from childhood.:) Some are almost in shreds they have been looked at and read so many times. Love feeling your visits. xOx
