After reading the little prince, I think the book leaves many a question for me to think deeply.

The dialogues between the Little Prince and the fox let me think deeply, even recall my innermost, pure desire. The pure concern and admiration between people and people appearing in the text really make me happy. The author, as a matter of fact, has the same expectation. Though it still needs to separate eventually, the interflow of affections has cherished in heart forever. The most important thing only can be affected by heart. Even there have so many reluctances.

The Little Prince is a travel story. It talks about friendship, love, even the life. I can find that he uses many kinds of people, animals, and plant to symbolize various people, affairs, and things men has met in life. Such as a fox is a friend, rose is a lover, and so on. What's more, the pilot that is the author's embodiment to go into the story. That represents, also, all of adults after growing up need to be enlightened. They are a group yearn for seeking back their childlikeness. From lengths of wonderful trip and many warm and fragrant affections it involved, and the author, from inward heart, sublimated his real feelings into elegant words, I am not only get an enlightenment but also get a whole new window of soul. For my past, future, and present, they all expand a whole new field of vision.

Amid the story, the most interesting thing is that the author keeps repeating the concept over and over again ---what is the most important thing? For the Little Prince, the most important thing is to look after his planet, flower, and care every life. However, that kind of concept is not necessary suit to everyone. Think carefully. Do the wealth, power, and status we go after all of our life is that important? From the book, I saw the conceited man, the tippler who want to evade the past, the businessman's greed for money, the obstinate lamplighter, and the geographer engaging in idle theorizing. Those who persist in themselves all have a regret for not understanding the life. The boring action in other people's eyes as if our epitome in reality ---so sorrowful but really exist. As time goes by, we grow up gradually and learn how to subsist in society cleverly and worldly; meanwhile, we also fade from our memory of dreams and utter innocence once we have. Nevertheless, I believe that every individual has his or her own Little Prince in the mind. Some people maybe can find it, and some people maybe still roll in the fame and wealth. It's all up to one's choice. The author in the book is a reaction of man. The Little Prince, actually, is the embodiment of his pure soul ---a potential self, which affects him to keep having a warm and lovely heart to face the circumstances around him. As the description amid the book: Men set out on their way in express trains, but they do not know what they are looking for, they just go and come hurriedly and enjoy busying but they only to stay the same place all the time... Maybe only when one knows what he wants can he live luckily and happily!

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." is the whole book's main idea. In other words, every word the Little Prince said is that meaning. In the Little Prince's trip, the fox said to him that the element of relief is very high. Why should I say so. The main reason is that the fox let the Little Prince understood the thing that he wants to figure in the trip. That is "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." The fox seemed save the Little Prince and that makes he understands his own "heart" in this lonely and fatigued trip.

Last, it's essential that the Little Prince have to die. The snake he had met mentioned: Whomever I touch, I send back to the earth from whence he came. Hence, I think that the snake represents the death of god. He faced the death was so natural but not that afraid. As if it is essential to depart from a body and transform into another sort of invisible and lighter shape, then, it's possible to exist in the world eternally. And as if so, he can simply accompany that proud but fragile flower forever.
