Antoine de Saint-Exupery is not just a pilot and not just a writer. He is also a great sage, philosopher, who knows how to Express the inexpressible in simple and accessible words, to convey the inexpressible.
For whom did the author write his fairy tale-for children or for adults? Yes and a fairy tale whether this? The image of the Little Prince is so real that it seems-this is another of your friend, serious and trusting, honest and faithful. It’s just that friend’s gone now. On other planets? What nonsense! Always when a friend is leaving for a long time, it seems that he is on another planet. But, as remarkable writer Richard Bach said, “there is no such place — far away.”
The little Prince lives among us, but we can’t always see him. As the Fox said from the fairy tale, “people no longer have enough time to learn something.” And after all in order that you have a real friend, “it is necessary to be patient”, so — and time. Rare friendship at first sight, man you need to learn about and “tame”.
“One sees clearly only with the heart,” shared Fox with his friend The Little Prince. Indeed, the closer we get to know a person, the more our perception changes: we watch him not with our eyes, but with our hearts, not with our minds. “Words only prevent to understand each other” because most of all the person reveals in Affairs. And it’s nice to be silent next to each other!
Sharing their feelings, giving one another love and care, people “tame” each other. The more you give, the more you get, the stronger are the bonds connecting people, helping to see the heart.
Fox helped the Little Prince to deal with their feelings for the first friend of the Prince — the beautiful rose. When The Little Prince came to the garden and saw that all the roses “looked like his flower”, it seemed to him that rose simply deceived him, bragging,”that there are no such in the whole Universe.” And only after meeting with Fox, the Prince realized how right was rose. After all this its a Small Prince every day, covered glass hood from draughts, “listened to it, even when she was silent.” And now, as a result, the Prince has realized that for him, this flower of flowers more than all the world combined. And nothing that this rose is similar in appearance to the others, because “the essential is invisible to the eye”. We love our friend not only because he has red hair or long legs, and not because he is a good student or the best swims breaststroke. We love him entirely, as he is, with all its “colors” and “thorns”.
I fully agree with the words of the wise Fox: “You are forever responsible for those who tamed”. After all, in friendship, not only you give, but you give, and you need to be very careful, sensitive and tactful, so as not to lose precious gifts. Giving love, trust, care, a person reveals himself to you, becomes defenseless, but this relationship is stronger and more reliable, it helps to reveal additional reserves of strength and energy. Communicating with a friend, we, like the Fox, find out the price of happiness.
During his journey, The Little Prince made many friends. It’s not just the Fox and the pilot who told us the story. Millions of readers, adults and young, have become true friends for Puny Prince. And most importantly, the Little Prince learned that true friendship is not afraid of distance. In separation feelings only grow stronger and honed to give joy and love to “tamed” hearts again and again and again.
