"I showed this to my parents and asked them if it scared them. They responded: ‘why would a picture of a hat scare us?’ My picture was not of a hat. To explain, I drew a second picture: it was a boa constrictor that had swallowed an entire elephant whole. The adults told me to stop drawing snakes and focus on geography and math and history and grammar, and thus I abandoned a great life as a painter. The adults can never understand anything by themselves and it wears me out to always have to give explanations—so, I never talk to them about boa constrictors, or of ancient forests, or of stars." "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye" ~ Le Petit Prince
