the little prince

Antoine de Saint Exupery

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." (Translated by Katherine Woods) A charming classic that I had (wrongly) never picked up till now. A surprising amount of wisdom from a children's book; parallels drawn between our world and the magical world of The Little Prince. It was a quick but deep read, which surprised me most. Perfect to read slowly and surely, one chapter at a time, night by night.
