On ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux. - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince.
We see well only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
This quote reminds me of the interview advice that you may have already read or heard. Based on the fact that first impressions count, we may often feel that it is important to be well-dressed and presentable on an interview day. What seems to matter at first, is how we look from the outside which can only be perceived with the eyes.
While external appearances could have a prime importance, what truly matters is what the heart can perceive. I don’t know if you have already experienced this feeling, but you can sometimes be in someone's presence and really feel a sense of peace and serenity and this has nothing to do with their external appearance but the beauty of their heart, their internal beauty.
I feel that how you appear to be, does not change how you really are and a great man or woman can only be judged by their actions and their words that do or do not betray their actions.
Compassion, generosity, perseverance, kindness with time and resources, being hard working and resilient in front of adversity are all some of the characteristics and qualities that make great men or women, that we all hope that we can have and pass over to our children and others.
