Do stars that smile at them shinesDo stars that smile at them shines

Do you remember what kind of person you want to become? What is your dream when you are a little child? It is true as we gradually grow up, many valuable dreams once in our hearts might slowly die away. But, don’t forget, The Little Prince is always there, even if we turn into an adult.   The world can be colorful or gloomy, depending on our eyes and our hearts. There is one small part of our hearts that lives little lovely children. The world they look out is like a kaleidoscope, full of different bright colors and strange shapes. They are strongly curious about every little thing, such as a snail which appears after a short period of drizzle slowly slides over, or the twinkling little stars that smile at them shines through the dark sky. However, on the other side of the heart, there is an adult kingdom, living all adults who are nearly dying because of piles of heavy workload. Their world is only filled with time, money, and still money. They chased by schedules, they do almost the same things every day without enjoying the giggling sound from children who are flying the kite in the park, or the newborn baby birds in the nest that are listening to their mother singing. Children always have firmer beliefs in realizing their dreams than adults. Children view things in a very simple and pure way. They don’t care about what others thinking. For example, five-year-old Katherine has saved more and more kids in Africa who suffer illnesses from bugs by sending nets, and all of this results from watching the miserable scenes on television. “We kids still dream about perfection. And that’s a good thing, because in order to make anything a reality, you have to dream about it first.”(Adora Svitak, TED Talk)In addition, children have the courage to think big and do not afraid of being driven off. Like the little girl in The Little Prince, who is touched by the old pilot and really wants to help him to find the little prince, no matter how hard it is. On the other hand, adults think a lot, such as their work, their salary, their family, and so on.  What’s more, adults might think big once, yet soon their ideas are usually shattering by the environment because they don’t have enough courage and they are too much care about others. To illustrate, the little prince becomes Mr. Prince and doesn’t even remember his true friend, fox, and his beloved rose. Children are more innocent and sensitive, so they tend to have stronger affection for everything then adults. The little prince cherishes his rose so much that he cannot forget it at all even amidst a garden of lots of beautiful roses. “It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.” (Osborne, The Little Prince) Similarly, foxes are often portrayed as cheaters or villains, but the little prince does not know about this. He treats the fox as his best friend. “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” (Osborne, The Little Prince) On the contrary, at the very beginning of The Little Prince, the narrators draw a boa constrictor digesting an elephant while all the grown-ups think it is a hat. It’s obvious that adults’ interpretations are lack of imaginations. In the same way, one of the adults the little prince come upon is a vain man who spends time admiring himself and seeking the admiration of others. It’s meaningless to live in our own world and do not care about others. “All grown-ups were once children… but only a few of them remember it.” (Osborne, The Little Prince) Everyone once has had the innocence and imagination of a child, but many forget it and lose sight of this. (Wood) Next time, if you feel upset at conquering against the reality, just think of the little prince in your heart. He will lead you to your dream and find your true color.
