Saint-Exupéry, Antoine “The Little Prince”

Saint-Exupéry, Antoine “The Little Prince” (Le Petit Prince) - 1943

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

One of my favourite quotes ever. A wonderful novella about love and how we look at things.

The narrator is a pilot who crashes over the Sahara. He meets the little prince there, a visitor from an asteroid. While he tells him about his travels, he also talks about his planet and the rose he left behind.

I don't know anyone who hasn't read this. If you haven't, you should definitely start. Also a great piece if you want to practise your French.
