If Saint-Exupéry is to be believed The Little Prince is a book for children

In order to return to his planet and his rose, The Little Prince allows himself

his « shell ». The aviator, who has succeeded in repairing his plane, also
leaves the desert. He still hopes The Little Prince will return one day and
asks us to write and tell him if ever we should meet his friend.

THE LITTLE PRINCE JOURNEY
The king – asteroid B 325
In the book, the Little Prince meets a king who claims to rule over all with
absolute power. His only “subject”, however, is an old rat that he hears at night.

Rule over - rzązić nad

Subject-poddany

Set-zachodzić (o słońcu)

At sunset-o zachodzie
The king exercises his power over the sun by ordering it to set – but only at

sunset. In order not to lose face, the king gives only “reasonable” orders (“I order

Lose face-stracić twarz
you to sit down”) – as good a way as any to satisfy his thirst for power. The Little

odd grown-up.

The conceited man – asteroid B 326
Wearing a hat as showy as it is ridiculous, the conceited man sees himself as the

handsomest and the most intelligent man on his tiny planet. The Little Prince
reminds the conceited man that he is, in fact, all alone on his planet, but still the

conceited man wishes to be admired and applauded. The Little Prince is
perplexed by such vanity: “Grown-ups are really very odd,” he says to himself.

drunkard is deeply unhappy, and he wants to help. The drunkard, however,

vanity- próżność

Ashamed - zawstydzony

Drunkard- pijak

Withdraw- wycofać się

Misery-niedola,
withdraws into sadness and silence. The Little Prince is left perplexed by this
adult who sees no way out of his misery.
The businessman – asteroid B 328
nieszczęście
The businessman is a large gentleman who is so very busy that he does not even

have time to light his cigarette. He spends his time counting stars, which he

Count- liczyć
claims to own. Then he writes down the numbers on a piece of paper that he puts



in the bank. The Little Prince tries to make him see that he is wasting his life and
that “owning” means being useful to what you own. He speaks of his rose,

Water- podlewać
which he waters and protects. The businessman is left speechless, and the

Protect – chronić
Little Prince once again finds grown-ups to be very disappointing.

Speechless –oniemiały

Disappoint - zawodzić

Initially- początkowo

Charmed- zauroczony

Character- postać

Light the lamp- zapalać
The lamplighter – asteroid B 329
The Little Prince is initially rather charmed by this character. His job is a
useful one: to light the lamp at sunset. But the speed of rotation of the
lamplighter’s planet is increasing all the time, and the poor lamplighter is

forever putting out his lamp and immediately lighting it again. “Orders are

Put out- gasić
orders,” says the lamplighter to the Little Prince who, in spite of everything,

Immediatleynatychmiast
can only admire the effort this grown-up puts into being faithful to his
orders.
The geographer – Asteroid B 330
The geographer is an old gentleman who writes down, in big books, the
information brought to him by explorers. His planet is vast and magnificent,

orders - rozkazy

In spite of – pomimo

Admire-podziwiać

Effort-wysiłek

Faithful-wierny

geographer- geograf

brought- dostarczony,
but he has no way of knowing whether it has rivers and mountains because
“the geographer is far too important to waste his time browsing around”. The
przyniesiony

browsing around-
geographer is someone who needs the stories of others in order to know

things; for the Little Prince, on the other hand, it takes effort to know things.

It is the geographer who advises the Little Prince to visit Earth because, he
says, it has “a good reputation”.

THE LITTLE PRINCE - QUOTATIONS
“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can
see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
„ A oto mój sekret. Jest bardzo prosty: dobrze widzi się tylko sercem. Najważniejsze jest niewidoczne dla oczu.”
“People have forgotten this truth," the fox said. "But you mustn’t forget it. You become
responsible forever for what you’ve tamed. You’re responsible for your rose.”
„Ludzie zapomnieli o tej prawdzie.” Lis powiedział. „Ale nie wolno zapomnieć. Stajesz się
odpowiedzialny na zawsze za to, co oswojone. Jesteś odpowiedzialny za twoją różę.”
„All grown-ups were once children, but only few of them remember it”
„Wszyscy dorośli byli kiedyś dziećmi ale niewielu o tym pamięta”
„And now here is my secret , a very simple secret :
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
What is essential is invisible to the eye”
"A oto mój sekret, bardzo prosty sekret:
Jest tylko sercem, że widać słusznie;
Najważniejsze jest niewidoczne dla oczu "
