“Goodbye, said the fox. 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, The Little Prince

The Little Prince first published in 1943, is a novella and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
The novella is both the most read and most translated book in the French language, and was voted the best book of the 20th century in France. Translated into more than 250 languages and dialects selling over a million copies per year with sales totalling more than 140 million copies worldwide, it has become one of the best-selling books ever published.
Saint-Exupéry, a laureate of several of France's highest literary awards and a reserve military pilot at the start of the Second World War, wrote and illustrated the manuscript while exiled in the United States after the Fall of France. He had travelled there on a personal mission to persuade its government to quickly enter the war against Nazi Germany. In the midst of personal upheavals and failing health he produced almost half of the writings he would be remembered for, including a tender tale of loneliness, friendship, love and loss, in the form of a young prince fallen to Earth.

    Самая волшебная и добрая! Надо иногда вспоминать про маленького принца, чтобы не стать закостенелыми "grown ups".Очень легко читается на английском.

Quotes

    Ирина Осипенкоhas quoted5 years ago
    “Who are you?” said the little prince.
    “Who are you--Who are you--Who are you?” answered the echo. “Be my friends. I am all alone,” he said.
    “I am all alone--all alone--all alone,” answered the echo.
    “What a queer planet!” he thought. “It is altogether dry, and altogether pointed, and altogether harsh and forbidding. And the people have no imagination. They repeat whatever one says to them... On my planet I had a flower; she always was the first to speak...”
    Ayşe Uzunhas quoted5 years ago
    "You know-- one loves the sunset, when one is so sad..."
    Пери Магеррамоваhas quoted6 years ago
    Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves,
    and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to
    them.
