Quotes About Heron

"si tu examines mon empire tu ten iras voir les forgerons et les trouveras forgeant des clous et se passionnant pour les clous et te chantant les cantiques de la clouterie. Puis tu ten iras voir les bucherons et tu les trouveras abattant arbres et se passionnant pour labattage darbres, et se remplissant dune intense jubilation à lheure de la fête du bucheron, qui est du premier craquement, lorsque la majesté de larbre commence de se prosterner. Et si tu vas voir les astronaumes, tu les verras se passionnant pour les étoiles et nécoutant plus que leur silence. Et en effet chacun simagine être tel. Maintenant si je te demande: "Que se passe-t-il dans mon empire, que naîtra-t-il demain chez moi?" tu me diras: "On forgera des clous, on abattra des arbres, on observera les étoiles et il y aura donc des réserves de clous, des réserves de bois et des observations détoiles." Car myope et le nez contre, tu nas point reconnu la construction dun navire.(chapitre CXVII)" - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry
