From that wonderful, strange little book, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Perhaps you will ask me, "Why are there no other drawings in this book as magnificent and impressive as this drawing of the baobabs?" The reply is simple. I have tried. But with the others I have not been successful. When I made the drawing of the baobabs I was carried beyond myself by the inspiring force of urgent necessity.
"Children", I say plainly, "Watch out for the baobabs!"
