Flower Ponder

" Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them..." " Only children know what they are looking for."

" It is such a secret place, the land of tears."

"The meaning of things lies not in the things themselves, but in our attitude towards them..." " One only understands the things that one tames."

"Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the shop...." " If we love something, sometimes just knowing it exists is enough to make us happy."

"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 I love about Antoine De Saint-Exupery is that he is a timeless writer. I pieced together some of my favorite quotes of his from The Little Prince. I hope you let my flowers cast their enchantment on you. Like the little child in the book, I am also on a quest to learn something, so that someday, maybe, I might understand.

A blessed weekend, everyone!

Beautiful pictures. And I love the quotes. Especially this one: "But there is no shop anywhere where one can buy friendship, and so men have no friends any more."

Love this! Very pure talaga si Little Prince. Minsan, I am in dire need of these quotes to remind me of the child in my me; because I am so caught up in the " adult world".
