One day, I watched the sun setting forty-four times......You know...when one is so terribly sad, one loves sunsets.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
He never answered questions--but when one flushes does that not mean "Yes"?
All the stars are a riot of flowers.
Here's my secret. It's quite simple: One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.
If someone loves a flower of which just one example exists among all the millions and millions of stars, that's enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars. He tells himself, ‘My flower's up there somewhere…' But if the sheep eats the flower, then for him it's as if, suddenly, all the stars went out. And that isn't important?
I shall never again admire a merely brave man.
To forget a friend is sad. Not everyone has had a friend. And if I forget him, I may become like the grown-ups who are no longer interested in anything but figures...
Authority is first and foremost based on reason.
Sorrow is one of the vibrations that prove the fact of living.
