      >Neverending Story by Michael Ende
      made me rather sad,
      A great book nonetheless, reading it again as one grows older is always a new experience.

    I recently read Le Petit Prince
    I probably lost a bit of the nuance since this is my third book in French but it just felt depressing

    I like ‘Owl at Home.’ There is something cozy about it.

    Bought a copy of this book for my niece. Asked my mom to read it to her. Apparently my niece got bored so my mom didn't get passed the first few pages.

    Everybody and their mother loves 'The Little Prince'... But I've never seen anybody on this board (other than myself) ever mention Antoine DeSaint Exupery's 'The Wisdom Of The Sands' (or its original title 'Citadelle'). It's literally the most beautiful book I've ever read. It's filled with aphorism and musings on what makes a good, meaningful life. It's the only book which has ever made me shed tears. Find yourself a copy and read it.

        Hesse is the most overrated author on this board and Siddhartha is only slightly better than The Alchemist.

    This book made me go through all the shades of emotions, from the light serenity of childhood to the cold and grey lonelines of losing love

    Leaves of Grass
    >A child said What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands;
    >How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more than he.
    >I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green stuff woven.

    >Or I guess it is the handkerchief of the Lord,
    >A scented gift and remembrancer designedly dropt,
    >Bearing the owner's name someway in the corners, that we may see and remark, and say Whose?

    >Or I guess the grass is itself a child, the produced babe of the vegetation.

    >Or I guess it is a uniform hieroglyphic,
    >And it means, Sprouting alike in broad zones and narrow zones,
    >Growing among black folks as among white,
    >Kanuck, Tuckahoe, Congressman, Cuff, I give them the same, I receive them the same.

    >And now it seems to me the beautiful uncut hair of graves.

    >Tenderly will I use you curling grass,
    >It may be you transpire from the breasts of young men,
    >It may be you are from old people, or from offspring taken,
    >It may be if I had known them I would have loved them, soon out of their mothers' laps,
    >And here you are the mothers' laps.

    >This grass is very dark to be from the white heads of old mothers,
    >Darker than the colorless beards of old men,
    >Dark to come from under the faint red roofs of mouths.

    >O I perceive after all so many uttering tongues,
    >And I perceive they do not come from the roofs of mouths for nothing.

    >I wish I could translate the hints about the dead young men and women,
    >And the hints about old men and mothers, and the offspring taken soon out of their laps.
    >What do you think has become of the young and old men?
    >And what do you think has become of the women and children?

    >They are alive and well somewhere,
    >The smallest sprout shows there is really no death,
    >And if ever there was it led forward life, and does not wait at the end to arrest it,
    >And ceas'd the moment life appear'd.

    >All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses,
    >And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.
