“If I try to describe him here, it’s so I won’t forget him.
It’s sad to forget a friend. Not everyone has had a friend.
And I might become like the grown-ups who are no longer
interested in anything but numbers.
Which is still another reason why
I’ve bought a box of paints
and some pencils.”
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
