All grown-ups were once children--although few of them remember it. The Little Prince, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupry. The novel "The Little Prince" gives me a lesson that I lost as I grew up. In this novel, the author provides chances to think about things we have never questioned before because we believe they are normal and unnecessary. Grown-ups are portrayed as abstract and crazy people in the book. Their actions directly correlate to adults today. They search and search, yet they do not know what they're looking for. They drown themselves in work, vanity, domination, drinking, and their own comfort zone. This is evident in adults today. They work night and day, and ultimately, when asked what they're trying to accomplish, they would then give a lecture on the importance of money, and why their mindless hard work is worth the time and stress. Surely money is of great import; there are essential things to take care of in our life. There are some essential life lessons to learn from the book, and I want people to think more about their lives with the quotes from the book by thinking more deeply about its hidden meanings and values, not considering them as just everyday things.
