The Little prince

I love children's books. I think they're the most beautiful books and sometimes have the best stories. The ones that make you laugh. The ones that make you learn. My favorite of all times is the "Little prince". I've read it tons of times and every time I read it, I learn something new.
This is the part I love the most:

"I am looking for friends. What does that mean-- 'tame'?"

"It is an act too often neglected," said the fox. It means to establish ties."

"'To establish ties'?"

Just that," said the fox. "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..."

Who has tamed you?

You know I have this book up in the attic (a childhood gift from my Aunt I think) and I can't remember ever reading it.
From your description it sounds like I would remember if I had read it.
I'm going to go dig it out today!
