“Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.”
– Jim Rohn
I loved the below quotes from chapter 21 of the book – The Little Prince, which though is a children’s book, has some intriguing and deep perspectives for human life. I think that the book is a beautiful amalgam of a complex yet simple metaphor for life with a simplified story that urges the reader to explore the depths of social connections in a way like never before. It compels us to think about the people who mean something more than just a name in our lives and why they make us feel the way they do…
Do these below quotes make you think of something deep? Of some special people? Someone who has tamed you? Someone you have tamed? Someone you feel responsible for? Let me know in the comments below… If you have other favorite quotes from this book, do let me know 🙂
Oblivious to the world outside,
She sat on a bench next to the café.
The cheapest coffee on the menu, was her ticket,
To sit solemnly for hours, engrossed in a book.
She would often be found with her head dug deep in a book,
Or scribbling random notes in a black diary.
A book is truly the only companion who would not deceive you no matter what ! After a long tiring day at work she welcomes you to hold her in your hands and bring her close to your heart. She is warmed by the shine in your eyes you have when you look at her affectionately.
She would love you no matter how many pages of her you fold when you don’t find a bookmark. She never complains when you drop some food on her just because you cannot keep her down even while having your dinner. She romances with you till midnight. Compels you to keep awake with her cuddling in your lap in the dim midlight. She is your cafene to keep awake. She loves to fall asleep besides you, in your arms.
