There are always books that we won't read for various reasons. Maybe it has to do with the genre or the author, or the person who recommended it, but for whatever reason, certain books just don't appeal to us. This was true for me when it came to The Little Prince
. I am not sure when I decided not to read it, but this is where the book stood in my life.
Recently I came across a quote from The Little Prince and finally decided it was time to put aside my assumptions and read it. There is nothing I can say that hasn't already been said about the book. It's full of sadness and melancholy but also longing and love. I consider myself a lucky person who gets to look at a field of wheat and be reminded of someone I have tamed.
