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

  •  “What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.”

  •  “If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”

  • “The time for action is now. It's never too late to do something.”

  •  “A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.”

  • “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

  •  “I have no right, by anything I do or say, to demean a human being in his own eyes. What matters is not what I think of him; it is what he thinks of himself. To undermine a man's self-respect is a sin.”

  • “A civilization is a heritage of beliefs, customs, and knowledge slowly accumulated in the course of centuries, elements difficult at times to justify by logic, but justifying themselves as paths when they lead somewhere, since they open up for man his inner distance.”

  •  “It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.”

  •  “I know but one freedom, and that is the freedom of the mind.”

    Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


  • “No single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born. It would be a bit too easy if we could go about borrowing ready-made souls.”

  •  “It is such a secret place, the land of tears.”

  •  “Once men are caught up in an event, they cease to be afraid. Only the unknown frightens men.”

  •  “Of what worth are convictions that bring not suffering?”

  •  “The meaning of things lies not in the things themselves, but in our attitude towards them.”

  •  “Transport of the mails, transport of the human voice, transport of flickering pictures-in this century as in others our highest accomplishments still have the single aim of bringing men together.”

  •  “Only the unknown frightens men. But once a man has faced the unknown,  that terror becomes the known.”

  •  “Tell me who admires and loves you, and I will tell you who you are.”

  •  “He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than the living man.”

  •  “Life has meaning only if one barters it day by day for something other than itself.”

  •  “The notion of looking on at life has always been hateful to me. What am I if I am not a participant? In order to be, I must participate.”

  • “The machine does not isolate man from the great problems of nature but plunges him more deeply into them.”

  •  “The aeroplane has unveiled for us the true face of the earth.”

  • “A chief is a man who assumes responsibility. He says 'I was beaten', he does not say 'My men were beaten.'”

  •  “We say nothing essential about the cathedral when we speak of its stones. We say nothing essential about Man when we seek to define him by the qualities of men.”

  • “War is not an adventure. It is a disease. It is like typhus.”
