Oprah.com has an article on love and seduction, and bizarrely uses a quote from The Little Prince as a springboard on how to “seduce your man.”
One of my favorite quotes about love comes from the book The Little Prince: “It’s only with the heart that one can see rightly; what’s most important is invisible to the eye.”
Nothing wrong so far. In fact, that is a great quote. But wait.
OK. “lens for love” is a little cheesy, as is “prince charming”. We love the Little Prince, but I don’t think anyone would call that celestial little boy a “Prince Charming.” In fact, he got a little weird from time to time.
The use of the quotes got really creepy really fast. Oddly, the author never again refers to the Little Prince. Perhaps she realized that using an image of a child (albeit a fictional one) to discuss adult seduction was inappropriate?? YOW!
