“One only understands the things that one tames,” said the fox. So the little prince tamed the fox. And the fox said, “And now here is my secret. a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
“What is essential is invisible to the eye,” the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.
“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
“It is the time I have wasted for my rose -” said the little price so that he would be sure to remember.
“Men have forgotten this truth,” said the fox. “But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose.”
“I am responsible for my rose,” the little prince repeated. So that he would be sure to remember.
