Quote Bullet

Only the unknown frightens men. But once a man has faced the unknown, that terror becomes the known.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Unknown]

Quote Bullet

Are wars... anything but the means whereby a nation's problems are set, where creation is stimulated -- there you have adventure. But there is no adventure in heads-or-tails, in betting that the toss will come out of life or death. War is not an adventure. It is a disease. It is like typhus.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [War]

Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add but when there is no longer anything to take away, when a body has been stripped down to its nakedness.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Perfection]

How could there be any question of acquiring or possessing, when the one thing needful for a man is to become -- to be at last, and to die in the fullness of his being.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Purpose]

Quote Bullet

To be a man is to be responsible. It is to feel shame at the sight of what seems to be unmerited misery. It is to take pride in a victory won by one's comrades. It is to feel, when setting one's stone, that one is contributing to the building of the world.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Responsibility]

Quote Bullet

Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is, who shall have sacrificed part of himself to his farm or country, fought to save it, struggled to make it beautiful. Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Sacrifice]

Quote Bullet

What do we mean by setting a man free? You cannot free a man who dwells in a desert and is an unfeeling brute. There is no liberty except the liberty of some one making his way towards something. Such a man can be set free if you will teach him the meaning of thirst, and how to trace a path to a well. Only then will he embark upon a course of action that will not be without significance. You could not liberate a stone if there were no law of gravity -- for where will the stone go, once it is quarried?
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Liberty]

Each man must look to himself to teach him the meaning of life. It is not something discovered: it is something molded.

Love is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction.

The machine does not isolate man from the great problems of nature but plunges him more deeply into them.

How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on.

Quote Bullet

Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Night]

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Whoever loves above all the approach of love will never know the joy of attaining it.

I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Freedom]

Quote Bullet

On a day of burial there is no perspective -- for space itself is annihilated. Your dead friend is still a fragmentary being. The day you bury him is a day of chores and crowds, of hands false or true to be shaken, of the immediate cares of mourning. The dead friend will not really die until tomorrow, when silence is round you again. Then he will show himself complete, as he was -- to tear himself away, as he was, from the substantial you. Only then will you cry out because of him who is leaving and whom you cannot detain.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Funerals]

For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow.
~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery - [Giving]

When you give yourself, you receive more than you give.

It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.
