quotes of note

“You’re beau­ti­ful, but you’re empty…One could­n’t die for you. Of course, an ordi­nary passer­by would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more impor­tant than all of you togeth­er, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I shel­tered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the cater­pil­lars (except the two or three but­ter­flies). Since she’s the one I lis­tened to when she com­plained, or when she boast­ed, or even some­times when she said noth­ing at all. Since she’s my rose.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Lit­tle Prince
