Quote Left Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee Quote Right
Quote Left Just living is not enough, said the Butterfly. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. Quote Right
Quote Left For example, there is a species of butterfly, a night-moth, in which the females are much less common than the males. The moths breed exactly like all animals, the male fertilizes the female and the female lays the eggs. Now, if you take a female night moth----many naturalists have tried this experiment---the male moths will visit this female at night and they will come from hours away. From hours away! Just think! From a distance of several miles all these males sense the only female in the region. One looks for an explanation for this phenomenon but it is not easy. You must assume that they have a sense of smell of some sort like a hunting dog that can pick up and follow a semmingly imperceptible scent. Do you see? Nature abounds with such inexplicable things. But my argument is: if the female moths were as abundant as the males, the latter would not have such a highly developed sense of smell. They've acquired it only because they had to train themseleves to to have it. If a person were to concentrate all his will power on a certain end, then he would achieve it. That's all. And that also answers your question. Examine a person closely enough and you know more about him than he does himself. Quote Right
Quote Left No matter how hard it is, true love is also the result of an accident in the dream of our life, and that accident is an event that happens in our soul. This event can be in another transcendental reality a volcano, a butterfly, a mountain or any other possible image we cannot even imagine. Quote Right
Quote Left You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder. Quote Right
Quote Left His talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly's wings. At one time he understood it no more than the butterfly did and he did not know when it was brushed or marred. Quote Right
Quote Left Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. Quote Right
Quote Left The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity Quote Right
Quote Left The person who kills for fun is announcing that, could he get away with it, he'd kill you for fun. Your...life may be of no consequence to anyone else but is invaluable to you because it's the only one you've got. Exactly the same is true of each individual deer, hare, rabbit, fox, fish, pheasant and butterfly. Humans should enjoy their own lives, not taking others'. Quote Right
Quote Left Know thyself. A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever studies himself arrest his own development. A caterpillar who seeks to know himself would never become a butterfly. Quote Right
Quote Left I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man. Quote Right
Quote Left What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly. Quote Right
Quote Left Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is a transition to a higher state of consciousness where you continue to perceive, to understand, to laugh, and to be able to grow. Quote Right
Quote Left Spin and die, To live again as butterfly. Quote Right
Quote Left I know not if I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or if I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man. Quote Right
Quote Left No lepidopterist's collection in the entire world...full if iridescent wings, is worth the life of a single butterfly. Quote Right
Quote Left Happiness is a butterfly which when pursued is just out of grasp... But if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. Quote Right

Quote Left What the caterpillar calls the end, the butterfly calls the beginning. Quote Right
Quote Left Know thyself? A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever observes himself arrests his own development. A caterpillar who wanted to know itself well would never become a butterfly. Quote Right
Quote Left ?How does one become a butterfly? she asked pensively. You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar. Quote Right

Member Quotes About Butterfly

Quote Left By looking down at the Caterpillar will not change the fact that it is a Butterfly in process. Your cursing words can not kill the Kaleidoscope of butterflies hidden inside Her belly. Quote Right
Quote Left Swim against the current, be "weird". Be the butterfly in the midst of caterpillars. I've asked a question many times but have never gotten the correct answer, "What is weird?" Weird is befriending the friendless. Standing up to the worst jeers from the worst bullies. "Weird is unique". It's doing what no one else will because they are afraid to be seen by others as something different. "Normal" is just ununiqueness disguised as something beautiful. Be the star that lights the path for millions. Quote Right
