Antoine de Sainte-Exupery
If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
It is only with the heart that one sees rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.
To be a man is...to be responsible. It is to feel shame at the sight of what seems to be unmerited misery. It is to take pride in a victory won by one's comrades. It is to feel, when setting one's stone, that one is contributing to the building of the world.
Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
There is no hope of joy except in human relations.
The one thing that matters is the effort.
In giving you are throwing a bridge across the chasm of your solitude.
One man may hit the mark, another blunder; but heed not these distinctions. Only from the alliance of the one, working with and through the other, are great things born.
Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is, who shall have sacrificed part of himself to his farm or country, fought to save it, struggled to make it beautiful. Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart.
