Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) in 1943. It is beloved even more today than when it was written. Ostensibly a children's book, there are so many instances in the writings that might be meant for adults to learn - perhaps to be young again.
Our lovely charm features The Little Prince in his almost-too-big slacks with his scarf trailing in the Sahara wind. Speaking to the businessman who felt he owned the stars:
The little prince was still not satisfied. "If I own a scarf, I can tie it around
my neck and take it away. If I own a flower, I can pick it and take it away.
But you can't pick the stars!"
. . .
"I own a flower myself," he continued, "which I water every day."
. . .
...it's useful to my flower, that I own it. But you're not useful to the stars."
This larger charm measures 1-3/4 inch high by 1-1/8 inch wide (at the scarf). It has a nice profile of just over 1/16 inch and is nicely detailed. The back is hollow but hangs flat.
