Here's the quote I like:

For me you are only a little boy just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you have no need of me, either. For you I’m only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me we’ll need each other. You’ll be the only boy in the world for me and I’ll be the only fox in the world for you.

Here's the full chapter in text:


In this quote, a fox has met the Little Prince and asked him to tame him. The Little Prince asked the fox why he should tame him and this was the fox’s reply.

In these words, I see reflected experiences with people I have met while travelling. I see people in my village in Italy where I go when I have to run away and I wonder how I could ever live without them now that I have met them. People are the greatest treasure this planet has to offer and when you find one that you love it is a treasure beyond price.

There is nothing to compare with the sight of a friend coming up over the horizon. Your face lights up, you feel like laughing and you are in love all over again.

Be their fox and they will be your little boy. Become tamed by them.


"You become responsible forever for what you have tamed."
