“Beneath the stains of time the feelings disappear you are someone else, I am still right here. What have I become My sweetest friend? Everyone I know goes away in the end. And you could have it all my empire of dirt, I will let you down, I will make you hurt. If I could start again a million miles away, I will keep myself, I would find a way.”

“Your handwriting. The way you walk. Which china pattern you chose. It’s all giving you away. Everything you do shows your hand. Everything is a self-portrait. Everything is a diary.”
“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we’ll hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence”
“As yet you are nothing. No one has tamed you, and you have tamed no one. You are like my fox when I first knew him. He was only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But I have made him my friend, and now he is unique in all the world.” And the roses looked all embarrassed. “You are beautiful, but you are empty” he went on. “One could not die for you.”
“You’re getting older, and you’ll see that life isn’t like your fairytales. The world is a cruel place. And you’ll learn that. Even if it hurts.”
“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from piece.”
“That is the most difficult thing of all. It is far more difficult to judge oneself then to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself correctly, then you are truly a man of wisdom”
“Men have forgotten this truth. But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed”
My music will tell you more about me than I ever will
Grief is like the ocean it comes in waves, ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.
“I didn’t know what to say, how clumsy I felt. I didn’t know how to reach him, where to find him... it’s so mysterious, the land of tears”
“Look up at the sky. Ask yourself, has the sheep eaten the flower or not? And you’ll see how everything changes and no grown up will ever understand how such a thing could be so important”
"You are the pilot, and the voice of the story. You are the one who creates and tells the stories for those who could not be there. You are unable to be comforted but wish to comfort others. There is a great something missing in your life. Do not forget that you are much loved. Let your sorrow be comforted..."
“What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well”
“Language is the source of misunderstandings”
"One day" you said to me, "I saw the sunset forty-four times" And a little later you added "You know - one loves the sunset, when one is sad....." "Were you sad then?" I asked, "on the day of the forty-four sunsets?" But the little Prince made no reply.
“I am looking for friends, what does that mean — tame” “It’s an act too often neglected” said the Fox. “It means to establish ties” “To establish ties?” “Just that” said the Fox “To me you are nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more then a Fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you I shall be unique in all the world...”
