7. The little prince cries out that the question of whether his sheep eats his rose is much more important than the narrator’s plane.
The narrator & The littlie prince:
That's a boa constrictor digesting an elephant.
If you tell grouwn-ups, "I saw a beatiful red brick house, with geraniums at the windows and doves on the roof..,"
they won't be able to imagine such a house.
You have to tell them, "I saw a house worth a hundred thousand francs."
Then, they exclaim,
"What a pretty house!"
My favorite part


They never ask: "What does his voice sound like?", "What games does he like best?", "Does he collect butterflies?"
They ask: "How old is he?", "How many brothers does he have?", "How much does he weigh?", "How much money does his father make?"
Only then do they think they know him.
When you tell them about a new friends, they never ask questions about what really matters.
The major theme is the importance of looking beneath the surface to find a real truth and a meaning of a thing.
