Little Prince and the fox

Today was a normal day, nothing special happened, nothing extraordinary was said or done. This would have been a lost day but it was not meant to be. It was late and I was reading a student paper. It was a regular student paper but then I read these lines "To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need for you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I an nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you I shall be unique in all the word"
I cannot tell you how delighted I am to see one of my favorite books cited in a student paper. I cannot even remember the last time I read this book. I felt like I had ran into a good old friend after a very long time, a friend that I had missed so very much that...I don't know what really but you got the picture, let's just say that I was a little shaken. So I decided to share the chapter from the book with you hoping that it will make your day too. Hope you enjoy it.
"What is essential is invisible to the eye," Beril repeated, so that she would be sure to remember. "It is the time I have wasted for my rose--"said Beril, so that she would be sure to remember.
