Mooguzshura It was a picture of a boa digesting an elephant. I have flown a little over all parts of the world; and it is true that geography has been very useful to me. I was wrong to grow older. So I lived my life alone, without anyone that I could really talk to, until I had an accident with my plane in the Desert of Sahara, six years ago. Loading… It is an airplane.

Shelves: antoine-de-saint-exup-ry That is impressive, the age of a man! That summarises all his life. This maturity of his has taken a long time to achieve. It has grown through so many obstacles conquered, so many serious illnesses cured, so many griefs appeased, so many despairs overcome, so many dangers unconsciously passed.
It has grown through so many desires, so many hopes, so many regrets, so many lapses, so much love. The age of a man, that represents a good load of experience and memories. In spite of decoys, jolts, and That is impressive, the age of a man! In spite of decoys, jolts, and ruts, you have continued to plod like a horse drawing a cart. I long for a companion who, above the disputes of reason, will respect in me the pilgrim of that light.
I need to feel sometimes, in advance, the promised warmth, and to rely, beyond myself, upon that rendezvous which will be ours. I am so weary of polemics, exclusiveness and fanaticism. I can come to you without having to wear a uniform, without having to recite the Koran, without denying anything of my inmost world. With you I do not have to justify myself, to plead or to prove; I find peace as I did at Tournus.
Beyond awkward words, beyond deceiving statements, you only consider the man in me. You honour in me the ambassador of special beliefs, customs and lore. If I am different from you, far from depriving you, I augment you. You question me as one questions a traveller. As, like anyone else, I need to be appreciated, I feel pure in you and come to you.
I need to go where I am pure. Neither my sayings nor my doings have taught you who I am. But because you have accepted me as I am, you are indulgent, when necessary, towards those doings and sayings. I know that you are prepared to accept me as I am. What could I do with a friend who would judge me? When I welcome a friend, if he is lame, I invite him to sit down and do not ask him to dance. My friend, I need you as one needs a space where one can breathe.
