“Folly is
so human that it has common roots with poetry and tragedy; it is
revealed as much in the insane asylum as in the writings of a
Cervantes or a Shakespeare, or in the deep psychological insights
and cries of revolt of a Nietzsche.”
RICHARD HOWARD

“... You become responsible forever for what you’ve tamed. You’re responsible for your rose.
-----
I have lived a great deal among grown-ups. I have seen them intimately, close at hand. And that has not much improved my opinion of them.
----
I am who I am and I have the need to be.
----
It is far more difficult to judge oneself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself correctly, then you are truly a man of wisdom.
-----
Straight ahead you can not go very far.
-----
Grown-ups love figures... When you tell them you've made a new friend they never ask you any questions about essential 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 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 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!'
----
One runs the risk of crying a bit if one allows oneself to be tamed.”
Richard Howard, The Little Prince
