Vol de nuit review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Lotos cada um na parte de trás duma coberta pesada como um batelão perdidos na noite meditavam no seu voo e em direcção à cidade imensa desceriam lentamente do seu céu de tempestade ou de paz como estranhos camponeses ue desc. Now a watchman from the heart of night he learnt how night betrays man s presence his voices lights and his unrest That star down there in the shadows alone a lonely house Yonder a fading star that house is closing in upon its love Or on its lassitude A house that has ceased to flash its signal to the world Gathered round their lamp lit table those peasants do not know the measure of their hopes they do not guess that their desire carries so far out into the vastness of the night that hems them in But Fabien has met it on his path when coming from a thousand miles away he feels the heavy ground swell raise his panting plane and let it sink when he has crossed a dozen storms like lands at war between them neutral tracts of moonlight to reach at last those lights one following the other and knows himself a conueror They think these peasants that their lamp shines only for that little table but from fifty miles away some one has felt the summons of their light as though it were a desperate signal from some lonely island flashed by shipwrecked men toward the seaHe might keep up the struggle chance his luck no destiny attacks us from outside But within him man bears his fate and there comes a moment when he knows himself vulnerable and then as in a vertigo blunder upon blunder lures himAnd at this very moment there gleamed above his head across a storm rift like a fatal lure within a deep abyss a star or twoOnly too well he knew them for a trap A man sees a few stars at the issue of a pit and climbs toward them and then never can he get down again but stays up there eternally chewing the stars But such was his lust for light that he began to climb

summary Vol de nuit

Vol de nuit review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Em das suas montanhas Rivière responsável por toda a rede passeava dum lado para o outro no campo de aviação de Buenos Aires Permanecia silencioso pois até à chegada dos três aviões este dia para ele continuava a ser temív. Deeply hopeful and yet delicately sad Night Flight is a tale of man s and in my opinion Saint Exupery s encounter with the great unknown and dark forces of existence To the edge of deep and true meaning he comes though in my opinion stops before coming to the beautiful connection between the meaning encountered upon the journey and the meaning inherent in the world itself Still the force of will life and human spirit and the beauty that he finds in the human desire to continue on even when all hope is lost is a type of strength rarely explored so well As a writer Saint Exupery deserves five stars though the message of the book albeit strong and powerful in my opinion stops short of grasping the fullness of meaning in the human journey Sad I thought especially since his writing seems to examine and illuminate such meaning and reminds me again of the beauty of it all
