2. What did the fox in the story represent? Someone said that is a wit, but that is all?
It maybe represents "friend." You have good friends and some people also have you this good friend. The relation of each other is just as the Little Prince to the fox.
3. Does the Little Prince represent innocence? Then why did he cry after seeing five thousand roses?
The Little Prince is your "heart", your emotion. The reason he cry is that he felt that he himself hasn't the ability of stopping his rose from feeling sad. He felt he is nothing. He was not cry for himself.
4. Do you agree with the fox’s point? "It is enough that man just only knows the friends he has tamed." Does that kind of love isn’t very selfish?
That is so-called a man. No one has the ability of looking after the whole people in the world, but it has to care surely. However, to care and to look after are very different. If every individual in the world has his own friends and family to take care of each other, then it's not so important whether that man has looked after the whole people in the world or not.
