There can Only be One among Everyone

People are made beautiful, but there is someone among everyone that one could die for though he sees everyone alike. Yet, though all of them are alike, he knows sure who belongs to him. That makes the difference.

Alike to how the Little Prince’s reserves his rose, "…an ordinary passerby would think that my rose looked just like you-- the rose that belongs to me. But in herself alone she is more important than all the hundreds of you other roses: because it is she that I have watered; because it is she that I have put under the glass globe; because it is she that I have sheltered behind the screen; because it is for her that I have killed the caterpillars (except the two or three that we saved to become butterflies); because it is she that I have listened to, when she grumbled, or boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing. Because she is my rose…" so I know why I reserve my rose among all others.

It is the time I have wasted for my rose that makes my rose so important. And that I am responsible for whatever I tame. I am responsible for my rose.
