"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye." That was the line I took by heart reading "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint Exupery.When I read the story of "The Little Prince" , I was really touched by it. At first, I only think of the story good only for children, but as I am reading it, I came to realize that behind the story, a deeper meaning is evolving. For me,those line refer to the beauty of life. Sometimes, we tend to misinterpret things because of its appearance. Sometimes,we are too focus on the things that can make us rich and famous. And because of that, we tend to forget things which is more important than that. It can be our relationship with God and also with our family and other people. We are so busy that we forget to do a reflection of ourselves. Is/Was there a quote that you took by heart in your reading? Can you share it? Thanks and Happy mylotting!

Oh! I also love that quote (the book as well). I have acquired a lot of quotes, from books, that I took to heart. There's one from Tuesdays with Morrie "Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live."

I always take things literally when I read but can't seem to think of anything at the moment that would stand out. Sorry.
