A favorite quote

One of my all-time favorite quotes (okay - no surprise: I have many) is from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, which I read in translation by Katherine Woods. I've tracked down the original French of the quote and provided my own translation today:

Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.


"Here is my secret. It is very simple: one only sees well with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes."

That should be a bumper sticker.
