“All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it.” You probably read this book as a child and the whole time you were thinking how you're never going to end up like that. Looking back, the book might have been right.

Here's a book I wish I read when I was way younger. The Little Prince is a bittersweet, eye-opening literature that are supposed to be for children, for them to be aware of the difference between growing up and growing apart from the reminiscence of youth that will keep anybody young regardless how old they've become.

Not only that, but the author himself played a big part in all the feels that's out to get you in The Little Prince. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry himself dreamt of flying and adventures. His love for both inspired him to write the book. Until the very end, Antoine lived the life of the dreamer and adventurer he's always been.
