50 Phrases of the Little Prince that will excite you

I leave you the best phrases of the little prince about love, the fox, the rose, life, adults, friendship, overcoming and much more. It is the third best-selling book in history, after The Bible and the capital of Karl Marx.

Its author, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, was a pioneer pilot of modern aviation. The impression of the death of his 15-year-old brother from rheumatic fever is reflected at the end of the book.

The main character of the story (the pilot) is obviously based on the writer, since on December 30, 1935 he crashed in the Sahara. La Rosa is inspired by his wife Consuelo, and the Baobabs symbolize Nazism.

-Saint-Exupéry disappeared on July 31, 1944 during a reconnaissance mission and his whereabouts were never known. As a curiosity, andThere is a French note worth 50 francs in honor of Saint-Exupery.

-When you finish getting ready in the morning, you have to carefully clean the planet. It is necessary to dedicate yourself regularly to uprooting the baobabs, when you distinguish them from the rose bushes, to which they look very similar when they are tiny. It is a very tiring job but very easy.

-I know a planet where a very red man lives, who has never smelled a flower, nor has he looked at a star and who has never loved anyone. In all his life he has done nothing but sums.
