COME ALIVE I can not play with you the fox said i am not tamed what does that mean said the little prince--tame? it is an act often neglected, it means to establish ties. To establish ties? Just that said the fox. to me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. and I have no need of you. And you on your part, have no need of me. to you i am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. but if you tame me, then we shall need each other. to me, you will be unique in all the world. to you, I shall be unique in all the world... I am beginning to understand said the little prince. there is a flower...I think she has tamed me... it is possible said the fox. on earth one sees all sorts of things. O but this is not the earth said the little prince. the fox seemed perplexed and very curious. On another planet? Yes. Are there hunters on that planet? No. Nothing is perfect, sighed the fox. But he came back to his idea. My life is very monotonous, I hunt chickens; men hunt me. All the chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And, in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that wil be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat... the fox gazed at the little prince, for a long time. Please tame me! he said. the little prince
