The fox and the Little Prince by Savousepate

Savousepate, alias Marylène, is a web applications developer in Nancy. She is also a talented artist, and only too happy to respond to our call for drawings and paintings. Her favourite passage from the Little Prince is this one:


« Thus it was that the little prince tamed the fox. And when the time came for his departure, the fox said: “Oh, I shall cry!”
“It is your own fault,” said the little prince. “I wished you no harm but you wanted me to tame you.”
“Yes, indeed,” said the fox.
“But you are going to cry!” said the little prince.
“That is so,” said the fox.
“Then it has not helped you in any way!”
“It has helped me,” said the fox, “because of the colour of the wheat fields.


Savousepate has sent in a magnificent watercolour depicting the departure of the Little Prince. We love the gentle way it reminds us of the true value of a friendship. Find out more on her blog.
