Thoughts on being a "Grown-Up"... courtesy of The Little Prince

Ah, The Little Prince, what a fabulous and imaginative story of what it means to be human. Have you read it?

If not, pick it up from your local library or here immediately! Per The Little Prince's Wikipedia page, it is one of the most popular books ever written:

"The Little Prince, first published in 1943, is a novella and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

The novella is both the most-read and most-translated book in the French language, and was voted the best book of the 20th century in France. Translated into more than 250 languages and dialects (as well as braille), selling nearly two million copies annually with sales totaling over 140 million copies worldwide, it has become one of the best-selling books ever published.

Mike found this beautiful quote from the book (one of his favorite children's books), and here's what he has to say about it:

"This is one of my favorite quotes from The Little Prince. I think there is a part in all of us that never wants to "grow up." But the hard part is not growing up, it is remembering."
