The Little Prince & Letter to a Hostage - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

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

August 19, 1938: On this day, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the author of The Little Prince, used a few card tricks to convince fellow French writer Andre Gidé that he was clairvoyant.

The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,Richard Howard

I remember watching The Little Prince on VHS when I was young. The boa constrictor stuck with me, as well as the adults responses to the picture. It's one of the reasons I may have to grow older, but I refuse to grow up. I'm sure that I've read the book before, but it's been nearly as long as when I watched the movie. Reading this copy I decided that the book and the movie complement each other. Mostly, books tend to be richer than the movies derived from them, simply because they have more details. The fact that the whole book is made up almost completely of details instead of plot means that it translated well to the screen. I love the story, no matter the format, and I have to agree with the prince. Grown-ups are so strange.

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. 

 

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

 

In the beloved French novella The Little Prince, a pilot who has crashed in the desert encounters a young prince visiting Earth from his home asteroid. The premise was inspired by author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's (born June 29, 1900) own desert crash. After three days without water, he was saved by a passing Bedouin.

The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,Richard Howard

Love to review Little Prince as much as I love to pick it up and read it for the 100th times. It came to my life for the first time as a school literature so I had to read it. At the age of 11 or 12 I enjoyed a different level of the story. Picked it up again when I was 20+ and got surprised with hidden meaning and levels, read it at 30 and came back to it just a couple of months ago. It is a type of book that inspires you without any pretense. Great to know you Little Price, thanks for returning to my life when I need you!

The Little Prince
The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,Richard Howard I'm obviously not the intended age group, and definitely one of those grown-ups always rushing around looking for who knows what... something that's as fleeting as a breath of air...
I did enjoy this story though, and I liked the teachings of the fox most! I always knew foxes were smarter and better than they're made out to be!
