Quotespiration Challenge – Week 2


Saint-Exupery-Le-Petit-Prince-Boa“I showed my masterpiece to the grown-ups, and asked them whether the drawing frightened them.  But they answered: “Frighten? Why should anyone by frightened by a hat?” My drawing was not a picture of a hat.  It was a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant. But since the grown-ups were not able to understand it, I made another drawing: I drew the inside of the boa constrictor, so that the grown-ups could see it clearly.”

– from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
