  •  “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.”

    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.”
