1. True Beauty
This is one of the most beautiful and inspiring quotes from “The Little Prince”. I really love it. The author manages to say so much in just a few words; well, the right words. The most important things in life really are the ones that you feel and not the ones that you can see or think. So try to focus more on the spiritual things and don’t pay so much attention to the material ones.
2. Do What Makes You Happy
As I’ve said before, the most important things in life are felt, so always do what makes you happy. You know what’s best for you, so don’t let others tell you otherwise. Choose wisely and take responsibility for your actions but don’t forget about your happiness and always work hard to fulfill your dreams.
3. Be an Explorer
Don’t be a geographer, be an explorer! Enjoy the beautiful things in life, have courage and always do something that will enrich your experience. Learn new things, do stuff that you are normally afraid of doing and don’t let fear stand in the way of your happiness.
4. Don’t Forget to Enjoy Life
Even though you are working hard to reach all your objectives and you always think about your career, don’t neglect the beautiful things in life and don’t forget to enjoy living. Take a day off every now and do the things that make you happy. Get a new hobby or just take on an old one that you abandoned because you didn’t had time to do it.
Even though there are billions of people in this vast world, your friends are unique, so don’t take them for granted and cherish the time you spend together. The world is filled with wonderful things so give yourself the chance to love as much as you can and go out and experience all those beautiful things that this world has to offer.
6. People Are Unique
Everyone is beautiful and special in their own way. Just take the time and have patience to get to know them better and you’ll realize that everyone has a lot of wonderful qualities that you didn’t notice at first. Don’t make your judgments based on your first impression! Just look for that well that hides in the desert.
7. Keep an Open Mind
Always keep an open mind and don’t complicate things! Kids have such a big imagination but they always manage to understand things just as they are without complicating them. Don’t forget to be a kid every once in a while and see the world through the eyes of a child to understand what true beauty really means.
The Little Prince really is one of the most beautiful books ever written and if you haven’t read it yet, then you should try to correct this situation as soon as possible. Do you know any other inspiring quotes from “The Little Prince”? Do tell!
