Little Prince meets Cherry Blossom Girl

It's been eons since I last read The Little Prince. Now that I'm on my second semester of French,  and practically fluent (hah...) I want to challenge myself by reading this book in its original version. I'll probably have to look up every other word, but it will be worth it.
 I'm not sure that I fully grasped the concepts the first time around- the universality of it all, but I remember feeling impossibly sad at the simplest of ideas.
 "Only children know what they are looking for". It's pure, it's unpretentious, it just makes you stop for a moment and wish you hadn't lost that feeling of innocence. It reminds me of one of Tom Robinson's quotes from Still Life With Woodpecker, "it's never too late to have a happy childhood"

The Little Prince is also a welcoming change from the fantastically complex world of Murakami's that I've slowly been working my way through this year. And from miss Virginia I-love-going-off-on a-tangent Woolf's world. It was a hot mess initially trying to discuss the first chapter of A room of one's own in class today. Finding time to read is always hard, but I'll be starting Lolita for my English class later this semester, so that's a total win-win because it's been on my to-read list for years! Which reminds me that I need shoot some photos of win's lolita- esque red heart glasses because they are bomb, and I need to work more on my photography in general. 
Look who's gone off on a tangent now.

"Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux."  
 Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
 -the little prince

'Où sont les hommes ?' reprit enfin le petit prince. 'On est un peu seul dans le désert.'
'On est seul aussi chez les hommes', dit le serpent. 
 "Where are the people?" resumed the little prince at last. "It's a little lonely in the desert..."
"It is lonely when you're among people, too," said the snake. 

 "Vous êtes belles, mais vous êtes vides.... On ne peut pas mourir pour vous. "
 You're beautiful, but you're empty.... One could not die for you.
