“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. . .”

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

“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 its 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
“,Grown-ups love figures. When you describe a new friend to them, they never ask you about the important things. They never say 'What's his voice like? What are his favourite games? Does he collect butterflies?' Instead they demand 'How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much does he weigh? How much does his father earn?' Only then do they feel they know him. If you say to the grown-ups: 'I've seen a lovely house made of pink brick, with geraniums in the windows and doves on the rood', they are unable to picture such a house. You must say: I saw a house that come a hundred thousand francs.' Then they cry out: 'How pretty!'
Again, you might say to them: 'The proof that the little prince existed is that he was enchanting, that he laughed, and that he was looking for a sheep. When someone wants a sheep, it is proof that they exist.' The grown-ups will merely shrug their shoulders, and treat you like a child. But if you tell them: 'The planet he came from is Asteroid B 612', then they will be convinced, and will spare you all their question. That is how they are. You must not hold it against them. Children have to be very indulgent towards grown-ups.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“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...”
