April Blogging Challenge Day 9: My Favourite Quote

Quote

Forgive me for posting the quote in French first, but I feel like the English translations don’t do the original text justice.  This quote comes from one of my favourite books: The Little Prince (a lovely short book that is filled with metaphors and little bits of wisdom).  The official English translation goes as follows:

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

These words can have different meanings to different people.  To me, they mostly mean that we are only truly aware of the things that are important to us – the things that are near and dear to our hearts.

To me, they explain the unconditional love I feel towards my children and the bond I feel towards my siblings, parents and grandparents.  They illustrate perfectly why I can’t imagine a life without my husband.  They explain why some songs give me goosebumps (in a good way), why a handful of books survived my minimalist purge and why a meal prepared with love will always taste better.

What meaning would you attach to this quote?  What is your favourite quote?
