Curl up, get cozy, sip, read, repeat
I read this book on a plane moving to Italy, and it deeply resonated. Key quotes: “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting,” and “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
The Little Prince
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I first read this book in my teens, and many times since; it transcends all ages. It is a fable about wonderful interplanetary journeys, ending with his revealing on earth the secret of what’s most important in life.
