Between a person you constantly go out with, but you find difficulty in confiding your feelings, and a newcomer - someone - you have never met, and yet, he never fails to reach out and make his presence felt, even when you raise your guard and brush off his hollow affections, to whom will you lay down your arms, when it is time to let your heart out?
From the Little Prince
"I am looking for friends," said the Little Prince to the fox. "What does 'tame' mean?"
"It is an act too often neglected," said the fox. "It means to establish ties."
"To establish ties?"
"Just that," said the fox. "To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other.
To me, you will be unique in all the world."
