The little prince and the fox


One of my favorite books from all times is The Little Prince. I find it full of wisdom for life and has helped me in countless occasions to remember what's more important in life. The part I like the most is when the Little Prince and the fox meet, and the later explains what tame is:


"to me, you are still nothing more than
a little boy who is just like
a hundred thousand other little boys.
And I have no need of you.
And you, on your part, have no need of me.
To you I am nothing more
than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes.
But if you tame me, then we shall need each other.
To me, you will be unique in all the world.
To you, I shall be unique in all the world. . ."


I find this to be very true. I was looking at my husband and my daughter playing with our dogs in the park and I was thinking the exact same thing. There are lots of men, lots of children and lots of dogs in the world, but to me, they are unique.

I made this doll inspired by that part of the book, but I made her woman because I am ;)
Maybe someday I'll make the little prince as well. (Available for sale on Danita's Etsy Shop)

A wonderful doll! I loved this book so much as a child, for some reason I haven't reread it (as much as I love fairytales) I'm pulling it off my bookshelf tonight!

I so enjoy your blog, thank you for sharing!

Oh, my, this post made me a bit teary-eyed! I'd never read The Little Prince, until I was about 21 or so. My boyfriend at the time came to my work and gave me a copy of the book -- which was one of his favorites -- and a little note that said "Thank you for taming me". We went our separate ways long, long ago, but he -- and the book -- will always have a special place in my heart. I love your interpretation of it!
