    What is the story closest to your heart?

    If you like reading books and are interested in stories, even the very short ones such as fairy tales, then you must have already found a book/story that has touched you deeply. But if you haven’t found such a story that is worthy enough to be called your favourite, then please tell us the one closest to you so far.

    Please tell us your favorite story, and it can even come from a movie, and how you came to find it, and anything else you want to express about it that makes it so special to you.

    Mine is the Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. I’ve first read it six years ago when I was still quite young, but forgot about it as time passed. By then, I was already looking for another book that I can claim as my own “favorite”, and went through a lot of fantasy books, since I love fantasy. But, just a year ago, I saw this book lying around the house. At first I ignored it; it was a children’s book, I told myself, and went on. Afterwards, I read it anyway, and from reading only the first page, I became immediately touched and sentimental, telling myself how I came to forget such a beautiful story. Right then, that was how I rediscovered it, and made it my favorite book.

    The Little Prince is considered a children’s book in many aspects, because it has a very short and simple story and is filled with illustrations by the author, but for me, I don’t share the same view of it as the majority do. It is a wonderful book with a strong grasp on what a child’s true heart is: innocent, pure, and most of all, they know what truly matters in life, of what is truly a matter of consequence. Because of such a theme, I strongly recommend the book to adults, who have lost the child within them. Although we need to mature as we grow old, we must never forget how once we were also children and were still not swayed by life’s trivial matters. The fact that it is a simple story makes it all the more profound in its idea, and it’s a book that you can read many times, and still discover something new about it every time.

    So, what is the story closest to your heart?

    Nice Topic.

    The story that brings everlasting happiness, not matter how many times I hear/read it, is one of my loving Mother's composition. In fact, all of her stories spark joy in my heart! Of all that she wrote, the one that stands out in my mind is a story called Kuruna, The Child Of My Dream. She worked on it for three years, after I was born. Actually, my loving Mother wrote it for me, so that, as soon as matured to comprehend speech and written language, she wanted to share and impart several principles, which will make me a better person.

    Yes, it has made what I am, today. In addition, my sisters and I love the mystery book that she wrote as well. It is entitled as: The Piercing Shadow. A Great story.

    Canturebury Tales. Really great collection of short stories from medieval England. Things like Beaowolf and others too. It was a while ago so i forgot all the story titles. But thier are definately some great ones in there.

    Also the one book that I can read over and over is Harry Potter. Just feels so cool the way she depicts the school life. Makes me wish i could be at Hogwarts.

    Talk less, Say More. Eat Less, Chew More. Whine Less, Breath More. Fear Less, Hope More. Hate Less, Love More.
    And all good things are yours
