The Little Prince is an honest and beautiful story about loneliness, friendship, sadness, and love.


The prince is a small boy from a tiny planet (an asteroid to be precise), who travels the universe, planet-to-planet, seeking wisdom. On his journey, he discovers the unpredictable nature of adults.

Famous Quotes:

“Where are the people?” resumed the little prince at last. “It’s a little lonely in the desert…” “It is lonely when you’re among people, too,” said the snake.”

I have lived a great deal among grown-ups. I have seen them intimately, close at hand. And that hasn’t much improved my opinion of them.

“‘What makes the desert beautiful,’ said the little prince, ‘is that somewhere it hides a well…’”

But the conceited man did not hear him. Conceited people never hear anything but praise.

It is only with the heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

No one is ever satisfied where he is.

It is much more difficult to judge oneself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself rightly, then you are indeed a man of true wisdom.

Sometimes, there is no harm in putting off a piece of work until another day.
