Rough translation of the text above:
"Please, tame me. What will it take?"
"I can’t tame you," said the fox. "I can’t make you more sociable. You must practice patience. You may sit a little away from me, over there in the grass. I’ll look at you from the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. Language is the source of misunderstanding. But each day, day by day, you’ll be able to sit a little closer to me."
