I have been surprised to find how popular this children’s story is with adults in France. Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was voted the best book of the 20th century by French people. Quotations such as, ‘One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eyes.’- ‘On ne voit guère qu’avec le cœur: l’essentiel estinvisible pour les yeux’, are taken my some as life principles.
