Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Up above the celestial sphere lived a child without fear.
His name was becoming of a prince, he raised a rose in glass and pics.
Asteroid B-612 was where he swelled and on leave he left his only smell.
Sweet ephemeral roots fighting boababs back home, goodbye he said as he roamed. 
On his way he met a scientist that left him dismayed, a snake uncharmed, a fox's alarm and buy a merchant sold was just too much for this miniature soul.  
Tea in the Sahara between a pilot and a tiny Saint of circumstance.
Home was the universe in a small boy's hand.

“All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it.”

“What makes the desert beautiful,' said the little prince, 'is that somewhere it hides a well...” 
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“People where you live," the little prince said, "grow five thousand roses in one garden... yet they don't find what they're looking for...

They don't find it," I answered.

And yet what they're looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water..."

Of course," I answered.

And the little prince added, "But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart.” 
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them...In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night...You - only you - will have stars that can laugh.” 
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“It is such a mysterious place, the land of tears.” 
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
