ABSTRACT
'I should like to see a sunset . . . Do me that kindness ... Order the sun to set ....' 'If I ordered a general ... to change himself into a sea-bird, and if the general did not carry out the order that he had received, which one of us would be in the wrong?' the king demanded. 'The general, or myself ?' 'You,' said the prince firmly. 'Exactly. One must require from each one the duty which each one can perform,' the king went on. 'Accepted authority rests first of all on reason. ... I have the right to require obedience because my orders are reasonable.' 'Then my sunset?' the little prince reminded him .... 'You shall have your sunset. I shall command it. But, according to my science of government, I shall wait until conditions are favorable.' 'When will that be?' inquired the little prince. 'Hum! Hum!'" replied the king; and before saying anything else he consulted a bulky almanac "'Hum! Hum! That will be about - about - that will be this evening about twenty minutes to eight. And you will see how well I am obeyed!'
