It’s madness to hate all roses because you got scratched…

*

“It’s madness to hate
all roses because you got
scratched with one thorn,

to give up all dreams
because one of them
didn’t come true,

to give up all attempts
because one of them failed.

It’s folly to condemn
all your friends
because one has betrayed
you,

to no longer believe in love
just because someone
was unfaithful
or didn’t love you back,

to throw away
all your chances to be happy
because something went wrong.”

“There will always
be another opportunity,
another friend,
another love,
a new strength.

For every end,
there is always
a new beginning.”
โœจ
“And now here is my secret,
a very simple secret:
It is only with the heart
that one can see rightly;
what is essential,
is invisible to the eye.”

๐ŸŒน Antoine de Saint-Exupรฉry
The Little Prince Excerpts, 1943
