Wisdom From The Little Prince

May be a cartoon

“It’s madness to hate all roses because you got scratched with one thorn, to give up all dreams because one of them didn’t come true, to give up all attempts because one of them failed.

It’s folly to condemn all your friends because one has betrayed you, to no longer believe in love just because someone was unfaithful or didn’t love you back, to throw away all your chances to be happy because something went wrong.

There will always be another opportunity, another friend, another love, a new strength.

For every end, there is always a new beginning…..

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Just a little heartlight inspiration for the beginning of August on a Sunday morning because I feel as if we may need a little soothing reminder. While I am not posting a Rabbit Rabbit, I still hope that you remember it as I do.

Shine On!

  1. This is great. The Little Prince is one of my favorite books of all time.

    I thought of Rabbit Rabbit today because I there was a bunny munching the grass near the sidewalk when I was walking our dog, I always talk to them. I said, “it’s ok bunny. We’ll cross the street so you can keep eating.”

  2. Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus replied, “I say not … seven times: but, Until seventy times seven” (Matthew 18:22)
    None of us, who is not yet a saint, is without sin. We need forgiveness and mercy. If we can be loved by God, who then is right in denying us.
