The thing is, one cannot review a book like The Little Prince. Its the kind of book you read and either you realise that this is a book written for people like you, or u find it a bore. Its a bestseller, so my guess is that this book, written in a really simple language, echoes the heart of many most souls on earth. Sadly, we have no other planet to go to. But sometimes, we can look up at the sky and wonder if a little prince and a little gentle, unique rose are fine, on Asteroid B 612 somewhere.
There are lessons in the book, but only if u choose to remember them. Otherwise, of course, you can read big books, and use big words and say them to other big people who will then marvel at your wisdom. But in the end, it all comes down to this:
Children must show great patience with grown ups.
I am responsible for my rose.
That which is essential is invisible to the eye.
You must cut the baobabs early, when they are still young.
Your rose is unique. Because it is unique to you.
And somewhere, on Asteroid B 612, is a Little Prince. Whose story must be shared. And told. Again. And Again. And Again.
We often think that Love and Relationships are the same thing. Love is
like a flowing river - it nourishes, it enhances, and it flows freely.
If we dont pollute it with negative things, it will always remain clear.
Relationships, on the other hand, are containers. They draw boundaries
and put things inside and outside. They confine. By definition, a
relationship is like a dam on a river. Thats why they are not the same
thing. Dams and containers are necessary. Our misery stems from the fact
that we create a container, and look for the river. They are not the
same thing. If we remember that we have created a container, we will not
look for the unlimited flow of love in it. Like water in a container,
love in a relationship needs refreshing, otherwise it can go bad.
