Oh, little prince! Bit by bit I came to understand the secrets of your sad little life…
For a long time you had found your only entertainment in the quiet pleasure of looking at the sunset.
I learned that new detail on the morning of the fourth day, when you said to me:
“I am very fond of sunsets. Come, let us go look at a sunset now.”
“But we must wait,” I said.
“Wait? For what?”
“For the sunset. We must wait until it is time.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
An Italian friend started a “post sequel” on “The little prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Her decison made me looking for that book at home, a book that I love for several reason, even related to my family story 😉
BTW a few days ago I decided to jump through the book pages and read exactly those words (well, were in Italian but the book part is that ;P). It has been a real surprise because I couldn’t remember this part of the book and with greater surprise seemed to describe a little part of my life too.
