“What is essential is invisible to the eye.”

by Tracy Ann Koch

The Little Prince was first published in 1943 by a French aristocrat writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery.  The novel makes several profound and idealistic observations about life and human nature. “The little prince lived alone on a tiny planet no larger then a house. He owned three volcanos, two active and one extinct. He also owned a flower, unlike any flower in all the galaxy, of great beauty and of inordinate pride. It was this pride that ruined the serenity of the little prince’s world and started him on the interplanetary travels that brought him to Earth, where he learned, finally, from a fox, the secrete of what is really important in life.”
