Magic that Love Can Do

Have you read the book “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry? Oh I love that book! Here’s an excerpt, which talks to me about the magic that love can do.


“Nothing’s perfect,” sighed the fox. “My life is monotonous. I hunt chickens; people hunt me. All chickens are just alike, and all men are just alike. So I’m rather bored. But if you tame me, my life will be filled with sunshine. I’ll know the sound of footsteps that will be different from all the rest. Other footsteps send me back underground. Yours will call me out of my burrow like music. And then, look! You see the wheat fields over there? I don’t eat bread. For me, wheat is no use whatever. Wheat fields say nothing to me. Which is sad. But you have hair the color of gold. So it will be wonderful, once you’ve tamed me! The wheat, which is golden, will remind me of you. And I’ll love the sound of the wind in the wheat…” that Love Can Do  digg:Magic that Love Can Do  spurl:Magic that Love Can Do  newsvine:Magic that Love Can Do  furl:Magic that Love Can Do  reddit:Magic that Love Can Do  fark:Magic that Love Can Do  Y!:Magic that Love Can Do

    “You are not at all like my rose,” he said. “As yet you are nothing. No one has tamed you, and you have tamed no one. You are like my fox when I first knew him. He was only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But I have made him my friend, and now he is unique in all the world.”

    The last time I read Le Petit Prince was in high school. Even then, it was magical especially when one is in love. But the funny thing is whenever you’re in love, you look for hidden meanings in songs etc, and all you see is L-O-V-E! Have fun Migs!

    That’s how I nurtured my relationships. I keep the fox’s philosophy in mind. No wonder, they last long, no matter how many trials we face ahead.
