Meer over mijn verzameling hier.
The little prince crossed the desert and met with only one flower. It was a flower with three petals, a flower of no account at all.
“ Good morning,” said the little prince.
“ Good morning,” said the flower.
“ Where are the men ? ” the little prince asked, politely.
The flower had once seen a caravan passing.
“ Men ? ” she echoed. ” I think there are six or seven of them in existence. I saw them, several years ago. But one never knows where to find them. The wind blows them away. They have no roots, and that makes their life very difficult.”
“ Goodbye,” said the little prince.
“ Goodbye,” said the flower.
