“One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.”
For more than sixty years, this insight from The Little Prince has been quoted in more than 130 languages by fans around the world. Now, for the first time, quotations from the collected works and letters of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry are presented in a charming gift edition. Six chapters--“Happiness,” “Friendship,” “Responsibility,” “Fortitude,” “Love,” and “What Is Essential”--offer inspirational and thought-provoking words about the subjects held most dear by the author. A perfect gift for graduates—or for anyone who wants gentle guidance.

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.
