"All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it."

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

This was one of my favourite stories when I was little a girl, it was a story filled with adventure, friendship and courage and I devoured every page each time I read it.

Reading this now as a woman, it is still one of my favourite stories, though the words are familiar, the story is far more complex, heartbreaking and deeply profound. I could never understand its true meaning until I became a "grown up".

Although I'm a grown-up, I'll always remember being a little girl, with fearless determination and an unstoppable imagination. Always exploring, making friends and asking questions, just like The Little Prince.

This is a book that everyone was meant to read, and it doesn't matter if you're a grown-up! It's life summed up in a children's book, written by an extraordinary man who met an untimely end. I only wish he could have shared more of his stories.

The stars have never shone brighter. ( )
