"Hello," said the fox.
"Hello," said the little prince, politely, who turned around but saw nothing.
"Here I am," said the voice, under the apple tree.
- Who are you ? said the little prince. You're quite pretty...
"I am a fox," said the fox.
"Come play with me," said the little prince. I'm so sad...
"I can not play with you," said the fox. I am not tamed.
- Ah! I beg your pardon, "said the little prince.
But, after reflection, he added:
- What does "tame" mean" ?
"You are not from here," said the fox, "what are you looking for?
"I am looking for men," said the little prince. What does "tame" mean" ?
"Men," said the fox, "they have rifles and they hunt. It's embarrassing! They also breed chickens. It's their only interest. Are you looking for chickens?
"No," said the little prince. I'm looking for friends. What does "tame" mean" ?
"It's something too forgotten," said the fox. It means "to create links ..."
- Create links ?
"Of course," said the fox. You are still only a little boy to me, like a hundred thousand little boys. And I do not need you. And you do not need me any more. I am only a fox for you like a hundred thousand foxes. But, if you tease me, we will need each other. You will be unique in the world for me. I will be for you unique in the world ... "
