The Little Prince because it's so wise and so beautiful.

Talking to a rose he finds on earth, where there are bushes and all. He only has one rose and three volcanoes (one is extinct) in his planet:

"You're lovely, but you're empty," he went on. "One couldn't die for you. Of course an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than you altogether, since she's the one I've watered. Since she's the one I put under glass. Since she's the one I sheltered behind a screen. Since she's the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except for two or three for butterflies). Since's she the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she's
my rose."

Its reminds me of that Neruda quote - "You are like nobody since I love you."

And plus it's short. So no problem there!
