“You are responsible for the ones you tame”
In this book~Le Petit Prince” by Antoine de St. Exupery, not only the little prince but the rose and the fox act as if they were human beings. It emphasized the fact that, when feelings are involved, whether it is between humans, or between humans and animals, it is the same: “it can bring you a lot of happiness but, at the same time, it makes you very vulnerable as, now, you are not in control of what you feel but someone else is.”
When the fox said that sentence to the little prince, he was discovering his vulnerability for the first time. This went deep into me. I really felt for the fox and understood the extent of the responsibility we have when we create some bond with animals or people. We have not the right to make another being suffer, especially animals as they have, most of the time, only one person they share love with. If they lose this love, there is nothing left. It must be devastating.
