Am I the only one that finds myself in his writtings? I have read the Little Prince 50 times (or more). Sometimes I feel as though I am St exupery. Then I dive deeper into who he was, what the words to the book mean and reference his other writtings. I start to feel closer to him. I keep thinking about his conversation with the snake in the little prince. I can draw no conclusion than; he knew he was going to die a noble purposeful death in the water, in a plane. He said he knew what the snake was saying was true but that the snake always spoke in riddles, to which the snake responds"I solve them all." and they were both silent. He planned his death and then chose not to speak of it. In the end, he left us as the little prince did, in a way that we wonder..
I am too deep into this to just stop. If anyone else feels the same way, please email me @ [email protected]
