A Guide for Grown-Ups: Essential Wisdom from the Collected Works of Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Antoine de Saint-Exupery / Author Harcourt Children's Books $9

The oft-quoted insights of The Little Prince, as well as aphorisms from other Saint-Exupery books, such as Flight to Arras and Wind, Sand and Stars, are gathered in A Guide For Grown-ups: Essential Wisdom from the Collected Works of Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Edited by Anna Marlis Burgard, the tiny volume offers a smattering of quotations on love, (""love is not thinking, but being"") friendship and responsibility (""there is no growth except in the fulfillment of obligations""), making this a likely gift book, especially for those who believe, with Saint-Exupery, that ""in giving you are throwing a bridge across the chasm of your solitude.""
