Have you ever read the book "The little Prince"? It's one of my fondest childhood memories! A couple of month's ago I was getting some work done with a friend at our local book store. Once we arrived, there were no seats left by the Café, so we decided to settle down by the children's section. You all know that section is lit! They have pillows, chairs, and even lap desk's for your laptop. As I was sitting there, I noticed the book right in front of me - The little Prince is not just a children's book, it reminds us some of the greatest lessons about growing up.
☆ You are unique
"The Little Prince is in love with a rose from his home planet, one that looks like all of the other roses he sees on Earth. But his rose is unique because he has chosen it. It is “unique in the world,” because the prince took time to take care of it."
☆ One sees clearly only with the heart
"Anything essential is invisible to the eyes"
☆ Sometimes silence is enough
"Words are the source of misunderstandings"
☆ Different people have different priorities
"All men have stars,” he answered, “but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, 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—and you alone–will have the stars as no one else has them–"
☆ Money is not everything
"But definitely, for us who understand life, figures are a matter of indifference."
☆ Be an explorer
The geographer: But I am not an explorer. I haven't a single explorer on my planet. It is not the geographer who goes out to count the towns, the rivers, the mountains, the seas, the oceans, and the deserts. The geographer is much too important to go loafing about. He does not leave his desk. But he receives the explorers in his study. He asks them questions, and he notes down what they recall of their travels. And if the recollections of any one among them seem interesting to him, the geographer orders an inquiry into that explorer's moral character.
☆ All you need is a tiny drop of love in you to see love in everything
"If you love a flower that lives on a star, it is sweet to look at the sky at night. All the stars are a-bloom with flowers."
There are so many more lessons, I hope you're inspired to pick up a copy!
