"For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? What?”
The Little Prince went to look at the roses again.
"You’re not at all like my rose. You’re nothing at all yet. You’re lovely, but you’re empty. One couldn’t die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass. Since she’s the one I sheltered behind a screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three for butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose.”
