During the summer vacation, I read a book called little prince. I want to deeply thank the author of this book, because he let me learn a lot in the change of the prince's life.
When he was a child, he loved life and loved his beautiful rose; he loved fantasy and had a pure and good heart; he could see things and see the nature behind things. These qualities of the little prince make me like this extraordinary little child fairy.
Growth is an inevitable process for a person to experience. On the way of growth, the little prince slowly learned to be silent and endure pain. The Little Prince changed his mind and learned to deceive himself and deceive others. Gradually, he lost the childlike innocence of his childhood, the once incomparable innocence and good heart, and became a mediocre, hypocritical adult who lost faith in life.
Is this the so-called growth? Of course not! No matter how old we are and how much life strikes us, we all have to keep a good and pure mind at all times. We must learn to experience life and enjoy the beauty of life. In this way, we can grow healthily.
Let's keep a childlike innocence, let our life and the world be full of sunshine.
The Little Prince is a tale for both children and adults. The Little Prince is the story of a man who crashes his airplane into the desert only to meet a traveling boy from a small planet. The boy inquires about trees and sheep, shares his journeys and various encounters, and then leaves. Yet, reading between the lines, the story offers a much more complex, eiching, satisfying and eye-opening moral: what matters in life is love - and caring about someone or something and maintaining that relationship.
The prince loves his rose enough to care for it every night by protecting it with a glass globe and requesting a muzzle for his sheep. He knows that the rose is naive with only four purposeless thorns and, out of his loyalty to her, it is his duty to protect her. Likewise, the narrator loves the prince and feels an obligation to secure his safe journey home.
I read this book as a child and was infected with a sense of awe and a newfound respect for the written word and its power to touch, heal and change perception. For myself, it accomplished two things; it instilled in me a desire to one day
become a writer and touch others with my words and like the narrator of the story, and Antoine De Saint-Exupery (whose own plane crash is said to have been the basis for the tale) it instilled within me a hope that one day the Little Prince will return and someone will let me know.
What is the meaning of this tale? Easily saying is that the tale talk about many normal things like morals and principles and values from two different but successive way as children and adults. As the narrator said you can only catch adults’ attention by describing the price of something or saying the number of something. It’s hard to make adults feel lovely by the children’s beautiful describing. That is the reason why many adults believe this tale is a tale for adults.
Being insincere and utilitarian, adults consider useful and kids think sinful. Free spirit and free heart, adults consider absurd and children believe necessary. The amazing point is that these two different beliefs are held by one species Human. When we were young, we could see anything God want us to see. But after decades, what we could see was only something we need to see.
There are so many good things for children and their imagination. And there are not so many things for adults and their reality.
Today, I read the little prince. Mom said it's a very good book. Let me read it carefully. I read it very seriously.
The little prince's planet is almost the same as a house. He has a beautiful rose on his planet. The little prince and the roses were annoyed and went to other planets. For example, crazy planet, alcoholic planet, desert planet.
Finally, the little prince came to our earth. He met a fox, and he became a friend of the fox. The fox asked if there was any chicken on his planet. The little prince said nothing. The fox allowed the little prince to tame it, because the fox wanted to make the world different. The little prince tamed it.
Then the fox asked the little prince what he was going to do on earth. The little prince said he was having trouble with roses. The fox gave the little prince a special gift, which is a sentence: "only by heart can we see clearly the essence of things. It's the time, energy and emotion you give your rose that makes him so important. The little prince took this sentence and silently carried it on the back. Finally, he was responsible for his own rose and went back to his own planet.
After reading the story, I was very moved. I feel that the little prince is a kindhearted, brave and responsible person. I want to learn from the little prince, and also be a good and brave man.
