The essential...

"On ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur, l'essential est invisible pour les yeux"
- By Antoine de Saint -Exupery in "Le Petit Prince"

This meaningful phrase is spoken by the fox to the little prince in the above mentioned, very popular french book for children, which means ~

One can only see well with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes.........

How beautiful and how true....! the air we breath, the fragrance of a flower, feelings of the heart, relations, passions, emotions, warmth of a touch.....are'nt these all invisible? Can we imagine living without these.....?

"Earth wind and rain and fire,
Wealth power love desire,
One goal to live for before we die,
One taste of glory,
One mouthful of sky..."
