Among the characters of the story little prince who are you? And why? I would probably say that the best character that described my life in this story was the fox. From all the planets that he visit and the people he had met the little prince learned a lot from the fox. That in order for someone to be friend with other he should talk to him or have a connection with him. The fox said that all of us are just the same the only matters are that we make friends we connect to each other. The little prince bumped into a fox who asked to be tamed by him. To be tamed by someone is establish ties with them, so that each one becomes special to the other. When the little prince silently, saying he had lots of friends to discover and many things to understand, the fox told him sincerely:

“I’m beginning to understand’, said the little prince. ‘There is a flower… I think she has tamed me…’ …………The fox became silent and gazed for a long time at the little prince.

‘I beg of you…tame me!’ he said.

‘Willingly,’ the little prince replied, ‘but I haven’t got much time. I have friends to discover and a lot of things to understand.’

‘One can only understand the things one tames,’ said the fox, ‘Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy ready-made things in the shops. But since there are no shops where you can buy friends, men no longer have any friends. If you want a friend, tame me!’”

It’s quite funny how the fox deliver that taming thing but, if one wants to make friends he should tame or connect with him and I think that is how world works, grown up are pond of buying ready-made things and often ignored that what they got is just things. And they end up being depressed because they didn’t spend their money in good use. It’s like they are being selfish while others is in the midst of hunger and agony. I’m like the fox, which needs friend not just friend who looks at things in figures but a friend who value friendship and loyalty and see through just physical figures.

Book Review On Tuesdays With Morrie

July 3, 2011 Leave a comment

This book is one of the most influential book that I have read, it talks about life and how to deal with life. The books covers 14 Tuesdays and each of the Tuesdays covers different life changing stories that Morrie tells. If I were to choose one of which Tuesday that I want most I would probably choose the 6th Tuesday because emotions is important to us and we should express our feelings and sentiments in order to discover who we really are and what it really our purpose in life.

The Tuesday in the book that strikes me most was the 6th Tuesday when Morrie talked about Emotions.

I was able to grasp what Morrie is trying to tell. Detaching, that we need to detached ourselves from our own experience not by just totally forgetting those experience but by overcoming it, facing it and finally letting go of it.

Morrie said that it is important for us to “detach”, example are fear, love, pain from any other things, it makes us afraid of these things and thus in the end we just run away forget that it never happened, because we often run away from problems instead of facing it. But Morrie said that we need to let all these things fully penetrate us and later let go of it, move on to it or embrace it that some things are just are beyond human capabilities.

Morrie said that detachment dos not mean ignoring an experience, but immersing yourself in it. By experiencing fully, one is able to let go, to detach. Morrie tells Mitch that he must detach during his most frightening moments, like when his chest seizes up and he is unable to breathe. It is then that he must step outside of himself and accept that he could die at any moment.

“When you learn how to die, you learn how to live”

More example is that there are times in our life that is hard and makes us wanna cry but we shouldn’t supposed to cry because that’s what being strong is and in a relationship we often doubts ourselves but we are are just afraid of what might be the outcome if you tell it to our love ones. But for Morrie he said

Turn on the faucet. Wash yourself with emotion. It won’t hurt you. It will only help. If you let the fear inside, if you pull it on like a familiar shirt, then you can say to yourself, “All right, it’s just fear, i don’t have to let it control me. I see it for what it is”.

By reading this story I was able to realize that we should not ran away from our problems instead we should face it and good things will happen. We need to find courage in times of doubts and confusion and by then you are “detach” because you face it. Its like taking a heavy weight out of you and dumping it and continue living your life.
