From the Back Cover:

“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is exhausting for children to have to provide explanations over and over again.” —from The Little Prince
 
What does it mean to be a grown-up? How do we find happiness, joyful friendships, and love that lasts?
 
Culled from the full works of the author of The Little Prince, here is subtle, radiant wisdom that has charmed and enlightened the hearts of generations.
