“Aimer, ce n’est pas se regarder l’un l’autre, c’est regarder ensemble dans la même direction.”

(Love does not consist at gazing at each other, but in looking in the same direction.)

 

St Exupéry is also the author of the world famous “Le Petit Prince”. Vous l’avez lu? En Français j’espère! 

Le-Petit-Prince

 

St Exupéry may also look familiar to you if you have traveled to France when we still had our national currency: le Franc. He was on “le billet de 50 Francs”! Et le Petit Prince! Et l’éléphant dans le chapeau!

Regardez:
