“Je lui parlais…

“Je lui parlais de bridge, de golf, de politique et de cravates. Et la grande personne était bien contente de connaître un homme raisonnable.” – Le Petit Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, pg. 11.

My rough translation: I talk to him about bridge, golf, politics and neckties. And the big person was happy to know a reasonable man.

I love this quote for its simplicity in stating the obvious; we exasperate children with our lack of imagination and our inexplicable need to always discuss that which makes sense.
