    Have any of you read it? It's beautiful, never thought such a small book would be my favourite.

    I read it about 30 years ago. Yes it is quite beautiful and very meaningful.

    The book has been published in many languages. A very dear friend sent me a copy written in Bulgarian.

    One might find Paulo Coelho's book "The Fifth Mountain" equally compelling.

    From the Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery -

    But the time spent caring for someone is never time wasted, but time well spent.

    We had to read it in french class in hs. It was really good except eventually I just watched the movie (although strangely enough I can't remember it...). I like some of Antoine de St-Exupéry's other books my favorite is wind, sand and stars (but read it in english haha).
