Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Grown-ups love figures. When you tell them that you have made a new friend, they never ask you any questions about essentail matters. They never say to you, “What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?” Instead, they demand: “How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make?” Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.

If you were to say to the grown-ups: “I saw a beautiful house made of rosy brick, with geraniums in the windows and doves on the roof,” they would not be able to get an idea of that house at all. You have have to say to them: “I saw a house that cost $20,000.” Then they would exclaim: “Oh, what a pretty house that is!”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Juan Gelman
“Look, words are like the air: they belong to everybody. Words are not the problem; it's the tone, the context, where those words are aimed, and in whose company they are uttered. Of course murderers and victims use the same words, but I never read the words utopia, or beauty, or tenderness in police descriptions. Do you know that the Argentinean dictatorship burnt The Little Prince ? And I think they were right to do so, not because I do not love The Little Prince , but because the book is so full of tenderness that it would harm any dictatorship.”
Juan Gelman

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“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 . . .”

“One only understands the things that one tames,” said the fox. “Men have
no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the
shops. 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. . .”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Yo me pregunto si las estrellas están encendidas para que cada cual pueda un día encontrar la suya.”

“if a sheep eats bushes does it eat flowers too?
a sheep eats whatever it finds
even a flower with thorn?
even a flower with thorns.
then what's the good of thorns?”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Supposing I know of a flower that is absolutely unique, that is nowhere to be found except on my planet, and any minute that flower could accidentally be eaten up by a little lamb, isn't that important? If a person loves a flower that is the only one of it's kind on all the millions and millions of stars, then gazing at the night sky is enough to make him happy. He says to himself "My flower is out there somewhere." But if the lamb eats the flower, then suddenly it's as if all the stars had stopped shining. Isn't that important?”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“No one is ever satisfied where he is....Only the children know what they’re looking for....”

“შენ ჩემთვის ჯერჯერობით მხოლოდ ერთი პატარა ბიჭი ხარ, ისეთივე, როგორიცაა ასი ათასი სხვა პატარა ბიჭი, და სრულებით არა მჭირდები. არც მე ვარ შენთვის საჭირო. შენთვის მე მხოლოდ ისეთი მელია ვარ, როგორიცაა ასი ათასი სხვა მელია. მაგრამ, თუ მომიშინაურებ, ჩვენ საჭირონი გავხდებით ერთმანეთისთვის. შენ ერთადერთი იქნები ამქვეყნად ჩემთვის და მეც ერთადერთი ვიქნები შენთვის...”
