Read-athon: Quotation Mini-Challenge

This hour’s mini-challenge is being hosted by Vasillis.  The task is to pick one of your favorite books and share one of your favorite quotes from it. 

Even though Maw Books wasn’t thrilled with it, “The Little Prince” is one of my very favorite books.  I try to read it both in English and in French about once a year (perhaps that was the problem, Natasha, it is much more beautiful in French than in English).  I wasn’t able to find my French copy just now, though, so I will just post the quotes in English.

This first quote comes from the little prince’s rose:

Well, I must endure the presence of two or three catapillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies.

This next one is from the very wise fox whom the little prince befriends:

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
