Bonjour tout le monde!
This week, I decided to do a little reflection on Le Petit Prince. It’s one of my all-time favorite books. For those of our readers who are unfamiliar with this story, it’s a coming-of-age journey across the cosmos, authored by famed French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry . While it has moments of sadness, it also has moments of great joy and wonder.
Voici mon secret, il est très simple.
On ne voit rien qu’avec le coeur.
L‘essential est invisible pour les yeux.
(Here is my secret, it is very simple
We only see with the heart.
What is essential is invisible for the eyes)
Something that I’ve learned in life is that we all have ups and downs, highs and lows, and moments where we have to sit back and reflect. Is this the direction that I am meant to go in? What is the plan for me going forward? How do I respond in the face of a setback?
While it may not provide all the answers to life’s mysteries, Le Petit Prince will undoubtedly charm, delight, and amaze you with its prose, poignant nature, and passion. Bonne lecture!
