Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I am not sure that I have lived since my childhood.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Night Flight

A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

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-Exupéry

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-Exupéry

I know but one freedom, and that is the freedom of the mind.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

When you give yourself, you receive more than you give.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
