What is essential, is invisible to the eye

I made this card for a friend in Germany, after she told me about a book with the title: The Little Prince.
Although I am a teacher, and read a lot of childrens books, I never read this story. It is a kind of fairy tale for children. Written by: Antoine De Saint-Exupery. First published in 1943. At the back of the book is this:
"On one level it is the story of an airman's discovery in the desert of a small boy from another planet- the little Prince of the title- and his stories of intergalactic travel, while on the other hand it is a thought-provoking allegory of the human condition".
The little Prince is searching around for new things, but what is really important are those you love and care for.
I liked the secret the fox told, as can be seen on the card:
"It is only with one's heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye".
