The Little Prince

The Little Prince is one of my absolute favorite stories. I'm definitely in the minority in that I had never read it as a child, I really hadn't read it until I was about 16. But that also shows that this story can speak to any age group.

The part with the fox is my absolute favorite.

“I am looking for friends. What does that mean -- tame?"

"It is an act too often neglected," said the fox. "It means to establish ties." 

"To establish ties?" 

"Just that," said the fox. "To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world....” 

That is just so incredibly beautiful. Anyway, this is how I spent my lazy Thursday afternoon.
