From the Mouth of Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes."

"Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction."

"You become responsible forever for what you have tamed."

"A goal without a plan is just a wish."

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

"What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step. It is always the same step, but you have to take it."

"In giving you are throwing a bridge across the chasm of your solitude."

"Love is not thinking, but being."

"Very often the essential is weightless. Here the essential seems to have been merely a smile. A smile is often the most essential thing. One is repaid by a smile. One is rewarded by a smile. One is animated by a smile."

"Even our misfortunes are a part of our belongings."

"Behind all seen things lies something vaster; everything is but a path, a portal, or a window opening on something other than itself."
