Later the little prince befriends a fox, who wants very much to be tamed so he will have a friend. He tells the little prince his secret. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly because what is essential is invisible to the eyes. The little prince comes to realize through his relationship with the fox that we are responsible forever for those we have tamed. He understands that because of the time he has spent caring for his rose, she has become his rose and that is what makes her so important. When he sees the rose garden for the second time, he no longer thinks that the other flowers look anything like his rose.
What do you think of the fox's philosophy?
