"What does tame mean?
It is something which is too often forgotten, said the fox. It means to establish ties.
To establish ties?
That's right, said the fox. To me, you are still just a little boy, like a thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you have no need of me either. To you, I am just a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, we shall need one another. To me, you will be unique. And I shall be unique to you."
