Quote
"

Fue entonces que apareció el zorro:

- Buen día - dijo el zorro.

- Buen día – respondió cortésmente el principito, que se dio vuelta pero no vio a nadie.

- Estoy aquí – dijo la voz –, bajo el manzano…

- Quién eres ? – dijo el principito. – Eres muy bonito…

- Soy un zorro – dijo el zorro.

- Ven a jugar conmigo – le propuso el principito. – Estoy tan triste…

- No puedo jugar contigo – dijo el zorro. – No estoy domesticado.

- Ah! perdón – dijo el principito.

Pero, después de reflexionar, agregó:

- Qué significa “domesticar” ?

- No eres de aquí – dijo el zorro –, qué buscas ?

- Busco a los hombres – dijo el principito. – Qué significa “domesticar” ?

- Los hombres – dijo el zorro – tienen fusiles y cazan. Es bien molesto ! También crían gallinas. Es su único interés. Buscas gallinas ?

- No – dijo el principito. – Busco amigos. Qué significa “domesticar” ?

- Es algo demasiado olvidado – dijo el zorro. – Significa “crear lazos…”

- Crear lazos ?

- Claro – dijo el zorro. – Todavía no eres para mí más que un niño parecido a otros cien mil niños. Y no te necesito. Y tú tampoco me necesitas. No soy para ti más que un zorro parecido a otros cien mil zorros. Pero, si me domesticas, tendremos necesidad uno del otro. Tú serás para mí único en el mundo. Yo seré para ti único en el mundo…

- Comienzo a entender - dijo el principito. – Hay una flor… creo que me ha domesticado…

- Es posible – dijo el zorro. – En la Tierra se ven todo tipo de cosas…

- Oh! no es en la Tierra – dijo el principito.

El zorro pareció muy intrigado:

- En otro planeta ?

- Sí.

- Hay cazadores en aquel planeta ?

- No.

- Eso es interesante ! Y gallinas ?

- No.

- Nada es perfecto – suspiró el zorro.

Pero el zorro volvió a su idea:

- Mi vida es monótona. Yo cazo gallinas, los hombres me cazan. Todas las gallinas se parecen, y todos los hombres se parecen. Me aburro, pues, un poco. Pero, si me domesticas, mi vida resultará como iluminada. Conoceré un ruido de pasos que será diferente de todos los demás. Los otros pasos me hacen volver bajo tierra. Los tuyos me llamarán fuera de la madriguera, como una música. Y además, mira ! Ves, allá lejos, los campos de trigo ? Yo no como pan. El trigo para mí es inútil. Los campos de trigo no me recuerdan nada. Y eso es triste ! Pero tú tienes cabellos color de oro. Entonces será maravilloso cuando me hayas domesticado ! El trigo, que es dorado, me hará recordarte. Y me agradará el ruido del viento en el trigo…

El zorro se calló y miró largamente al principito:

- Por favor… domestícame ! – dijo.

- Me parece bien – respondió el principito -, pero no tengo mucho tiempo. Tengo que encontrar amigos y conocer muchas cosas.

- Sólo se conoce lo que uno domestica – dijo el zorro. – Los hombres ya no tienen más tiempo de conocer nada. Compran cosas ya hechas a los comerciantes. Pero como no existen comerciantes de amigos, los hombres no tienen más amigos. Si quieres un amigo, domestícame !

- Qué hay que hacer ? – dijo el principito.

- Hay que ser muy paciente – respondió el zorro. – Te sentarás al principio más bien lejos de mí, así, en la hierba. Yo te miraré de reojo y no dirás nada. El lenguaje es fuente de malentendidos. Pero cada día podrás sentarte un poco más cerca…

Al día siguiente el principito regresó.

- Hubiese sido mejor regresar a la misma hora – dijo el zorro. – Si vienes, por ejemplo, a las cuatro de la tarde, ya desde las tres comenzaré a estar feliz. Cuanto más avance la hora, más feliz me sentiré. Al llegar las cuatro, me agitaré y me inquietaré; descubriré el precio de la felicidad ! Pero si vienes en cualquier momento, nunca sabré a qué hora preparar mi corazón… Es bueno que haya ritos.

- Qué es un rito ? – dijo el principito.

- Es algo también demasiado olvidado – dijo el zorro. – Es lo que hace que un día sea diferente de los otros días, una hora de las otras horas. Mis cazadores, por ejemplo, tienen un rito. El jueves bailan con las jóvenes del pueblo. Entonces el jueves es un día maravilloso ! Me voy a pasear hasta la viña. Si los cazadores bailaran en cualquier momento, todos los días se parecerían y yo no tendría vacaciones.

Así el principito domesticó al zorro. Y cuando se aproximó la hora de la partida:

- Ah! - dijo el zorro… - Voy a llorar.

- Es tu culpa – dijo el principito -, yo no te deseaba ningún mal pero tú quisiste que te domesticara.

- Claro – dijo el zorro.

- Pero vas a llorar ! – dijo el principito.

- Claro – dijo el zorro.

- Entonces no ganas nada !

- Sí gano –dijo el zorro – a causa del color del trigo.

Luego agregó:

- Ve y visita nuevamente a las rosas. Comprenderás que la tuya es única en el mundo. Y cuando regreses a decirme adiós, te regalaré un secreto.

El principito fue a ver nuevamente a las rosas:

- Ustedes no son de ningún modo parecidas a mi rosa, ustedes no son nada aún – les dijo. – Nadie las ha domesticado y ustedes no han domesticado a nadie. Ustedes son como era mi zorro. No era más que un zorro parecido a cien mil otros. Pero me hice amigo de él, y ahora es único en el mundo.

Y las rosas estaban muy incómodas.

- Ustedes son bellas, pero están vacías – agregó. – No se puede morir por ustedes. Seguramente, cualquiera que pase creería que mi rosa se les parece. Pero ella sola es más importante que todas ustedes, puesto que es ella a quien he regado. Puesto que es ella a quien abrigué bajo el globo. Puesto que es ella a quien protegí con la pantalla. Puesto que es ella la rosa cuyas orugas maté (salvo las dos o tres para las mariposas). Puesto que es ella a quien escuché quejarse, o alabarse, o incluso a veces callarse. Puesto que es mi rosa.

Y volvió con el zorro:

- Adiós – dijo…

- Adiós – dijo el zorro. – Aquí está mi secreto. Es muy simple: sólo se ve bien con el corazón. Lo esencial es invisible a los ojos.

- Lo esencial es invisible a los ojos – repitió el principito a fin de recordarlo.

- Es el tiempo que has perdido en tu rosa lo que hace a tu rosa tan importante.

- Es el tiempo que he perdido en mi rosa… – dijo el principito a fin de recordarlo.

- Los hombres han olvidado esta verdad – dijo el zorro. – Pero tú no debes olvidarla. Eres responsable para siempre de lo que has domesticado. Eres responsable de tu rosa…

- Soy responsable de mi rosa… - repitió el principito a fin de recordarlo.

Relationship Advice for Men – Do More Than Just Fixing

Men find it difficult to hold onto a relationship and once they experience problems, then only they should make the effort to improve their love life. But in reality, you should do more than just fixing if you want…

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.

Happy Bruno Mars Day!

December 19th was deemed “Bruno Mars Day” by the state of Hawaii two years ago today to celebrate Bruno’s homecoming after leaving for so many years to persue his career as a musician. On that day he was able to perform his own songs from his debut album to a host of family and friends in Hawaii.

As the 27-year-old singer-songwriter releases his second album, Unorthodox Jukebox, a look at why the R&B crooner is ready to take over the world:

99. Born Peter Gene Hernández, the artist arrived fully formed. Although he had setbacks before his first album, Doo-Wop & Hooligans, when it was his time in the spotlight, the kid was ready.
98. Mars had done his homework and came with a tailor-made image.
97. He was original, yet familiar. It’s like Michael Jackson meets Adele. It’s soul music that feels good.
96. All his family members are entertainers. When your uncle is an Elvis impersonator, you don’t make your art too precious.
95. He joined his family’s band, The Love Notes, at just four years old.
94. Think about that: Mars has already spent 23 years in showbiz.

93. Which is why he handles himself so well. He’s the anti-Lindsay Lohan. He’d make a terrific date to your daughter’s prom.

92. But it’s not just about his clean image. Mars is a bona fide star and his music — irresistible R&B, light reggae, sweet harmonies — passes the sniff test.
91. He’s gorgeous, sure. And always photographs well in terrific hats. But the music is catchy and timeless. It doesn’t make you embarrassed to be listening to the same record as your mom.
90. Which is another part of his appeal. He’s melodic, which is worth a lot more than being hip, no matter how many hats you own.
89. That said, he’s also pretty cool. And we really want to borrow his hats.
88. He wrote F–k You for Cee Lo Green and Wavin’ Flag for K’naan.
87. Even if that might not have turned out so great for K’naan. 86. But you don’t see Mars complaining about the woes of fame in The New York Times.
85. Last month, he earned his stripes as one of the few talents to be both the musical guest and host of Saturday Night Live.

84. As with Andre 3000, it’s obvious there’s more than just music on Mars’s mind.
83. He can play the guitar.
82. Sometimes with his teeth.
81. And he listens to everything from Jack White to Jodeci, though calls Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black record his North Star.
80. Which is why he hired Winehouse producer Marc Ronson for Unorthodox Jukebox. Which brings us to pop mega-fame rule No. 1:
79. Never be too cool to collaborate with someone you love.
78. His parents met onstage in Hawaii. His father played percussion and his mom was a hula dancer.
77. Whose mother is a hula dancer?
76. Zero Canadian pop stars can claim such a colourful ancestry.
75. Which just adds to his appeal. He’s Hawaiian, Puerto Rican, half-Jewish and grew up in Brooklyn. He’s a living Benetton ad.

74. And how did he get the name Bruno? His father thought he looked like the wrestler Bruno Sammartino.
73. That just makes his father sound awesome. This being the man who married the hula dancer from his show.
72. But Mars took his time before releasing his first record. He wrote for Sean Kingston and Adam Levine before writing his first album.
71. The reason? He was teaching himself how to write.
70. Which is why Just the Way You Are, the lead single from his first record, reached No. 1.

69. He kept his friends close. After his record deal with Motown fell through in 2009, he joined The Smeezingtons, a hit factory based in Los Angeles, and perfected his retro sound.
68. The Smeezingtons produced Unorthodox Jukebox. And even though they wrote hits for Snoop Dogg and Adam Lambert, they save the best stuff for Mars.
67. Who often delivers his hits with a smile. That smile, which you didn’t see on Justin Bieber at the Grey Cup, is the key to his cool.
66. He’s enjoying himself, enjoying his music. Which makes it difficult to resist.
65. No wonder he says one of his earliest influences was Little Richard.
64. Mars doesn’t come across like a tortured soul.
63. That said, he has a dark side. He was arrested for cocaine possession in 2010. He said it was the first time he ever used drugs.
62. So maybe send along a chaperone when you let your daughter go to prom with him, OK?
61. Also: He’s sold 40 million singles.
60. Why is that? He blends genres, taking things you know — acoustic guitar licks, Motown choruses — and mixes them into something new.
59. You know who else did that? Elvis. 58. Unorthodox Jukebox may be the name of his new album, but it’s also the recipe for his success.
57. Because, when you think about it, he’s flooded the market with his music. Not just his own stuff, but what he’s written for other artists. Yet it remains current and vital.

56. One reason for that is he works with colourful artists, who make his sound their own. But another reason is that he’s working with an entire music catalogue, which incorporates everything from The Beatles to Zeppelin.
55. You don’t repeat yourself if you never run out of influences.
54. And Mars changes with the times.
53. And let’s get into fashion. Even if rappers are wearing skinny jeans, Mars makes his tailored clothes look effortless.
52. Who else dresses like The Rat Pack and rolls with Snoop?
51. But that’s what makes him unique. The most prized possession of a pop star is their authenticity. Mars has this in spades. 

50.Because he doesn’t wear his clothing like a costume. When Bieber’s in overalls, it’s embarrassing. When you see Mars in his suit, it looks out of a page in GQ.

49. Even if the suit is gold lamé.

48. Mars doesn’t need a coach to teach him his swagger.
47. And he doesn’t have a Svengali. Even Justin Timberlake had Timbaland.
46. Mars comes by his fully formed sound and image on his own.
45. Which translates easily to the studio. He’s not only a singer, but he plays bass, keyboards and drums.
44. To wit: Playing every instrument adds to Mars’s musicality — and forget about his live show.
43. The man doesn’t have to lip-synch — though he dances like Janet Jackson.
42. Which is why he’s been nominated for 13 Grammys.
41. Nothing’s cooler than a boat load of success.
40. And who’s going 39-times platinum these days?
39. And earning critical acclaim? Rolling Stone gave Unorthodox Jukebox four stars.
38. Even though the record hints that he’s still growing. He spent two years on the album’s 10 songs.
37. But it’s only the tip of the iceberg. This is his boy-to-man album, where he can talk about strip clubs and drugs.

36. Eventually, he won’t have to define himself.
35. But, in the end, it doesn’t matter, because he’s such a convincing performer. He could read our January social calendar and make it sound exciting.
34. That comes from innate rhythm. You can’t teach what Mars has.
33. Nor can you teach his sincere desire to be famous. Not every artist is willing to release a Target-exclusive track, after all. (That song, Old & Crazy, features Esperanza Spalding, who may rival Mars for coolest person in the world.)
32. Although not quite. Because it was Mars who was smart enough to recruit her.
31. And Unorthodox Jukebox is a beauty. Young Girls, the opening track, is a pop star’s lament, with Mars crooning like Al Green over a beat that marries Stevie Wonder with — yes! — Skrillex.
30. It’s current and classic.
29. Mars plays the lonely heartthrob on Locked Out of Heaven, then turns into R. Kelly on Gorilla.
28. He can switch from hero to villain, because even his come-ons are winking.
27. Mars doesn’t want to alienate.
26. Which isn’t to say Mars can’t sing. He makes his records work beyond the videos.

25. We saw what happened with LMFAO: If you’re only a gimmick, you can’t last.
24. And Mars sounds assured. When I Was Your Man opens up with a Billy Joel-like piano lick.
23. It’s a perfect lead-in to Natalie, which brings back the beat from Grenade.
22. No need to recreate the wheel on every track.
21. It’s like Chris Rock said: “That thing that you do which bought your mother a house? Do that.”
20. Mars doesn’t stray too far from that thing that scored him one billion views on YouTube.
19. For instance, the reggae inflection of Show Me could’ve been a hit and brought back Sean Kingston.
18. Interestingly, though, none of his songs have guests.
17. Mars is too smart for that. Every track is him, and him alone.
16. Which creates a more unified package and singular vision.
15. One that’s perfected on the album’s last tune, If I Knew, which could almost be by The Temptations.
14. And he knows where his strengths lie: Mars traverses dark territory but, in the end, he’s the lovestruck crooner under a street lamp snapping his fingers.

13. That’s the image the record leaves in your head.
12. After all, his parents’ band was The Love Notes, and Mars is keeping their vision alive.
11. He wants to record and tour with his parents.
10. He told The Associated Press: “When the right time comes, you’ll see it on some kind of reunion tour, Behind the Music: Bruno’s Family, trying to revive my career.”
9. This is a smart because: 1) fame is fleeting; 2) that would revive his career, since his parents have experience playing Vegas.
8. But, for now, Mars doesn’t need any help.
7. He’s following his own plan.
6. Which makes it all appear so effortless.
5. So, in case you couldn’t tell, this is no sophomore slump.
4. From the styling to the album art, Mars maintains his gleam of perfection.
3. He’s upped the vulnerability and let his teeth show a little beneath the grin.
2. He’s an entertainer, after all.
1. And Unorthodox Jukebox will continue his ascent on the charts.
