Happy Birthday, Antoine de Saint- Exupéry!



The Little Prince Wikipedia.orgWhen I was young, I remember my grandmother telling me a story about a little prince.  At the time, I thought she was making it up. But one day, my mom bought me the book The Little Prince and I was surprised to learn that the story wasn’t conjured up by my grandmothers imagination, but rather the imagination of Antoine de Saint- Exupéry.

Today, June 29th, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry would have been 112 years old. Let’s raise our glasses to this pilot, journalist, author and publicist who left the world too early in 1944. Below is my favorite quote from The Little Prince.

“Goodbye, said the fox. 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.”
