“If you love a flower that lives on a star, it is sweet
to look at the sky at night.
All the stars are a-bloom with flowers . . .
Where I live everything is so small that I cannot show
you where my star is to be found. It is better, like that.
My star will just be one of the stars, for you.
And so you will love to watch all the stars in the heavens . .
They will all be your friends.”
“In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when
you look at the sky at night . . .
You – only you – will have stars that can laugh!”
“And when your sorrow is comforted you will be content
that you have known me. You will always be my friend.
You will want to laugh with me.
And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that
pleasure . . .
And you friends will be properly astonished to see you
laughing as you look up at the sky!
Then you will say to them,
‘Yes, the stars always make me laugh!’
And they will think you are crazy. It will be a very shabby
trick that I shall have played on you . . . “
"Little Prince" by Saint Exupery
