Line of Butterflies

A collection of inspirational quotations we have found about butterflies:

They seemed to suddenly come upon happiness
as if they had surprised a butterfly in a winter wood.

Edith Wharton
Line with Butterfly
A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment it's glory and beauty
belong to our world,
but then it flies on again.;
And though we wish it could have stayed,
We feel so lucky to have seen it.
Author unknown
Line with Butterfly
Happiness is a butterfly,
which when pursued is just beyond your grasp,
but if you will sit down quietly,
may light upon you.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Line with Butterfly that fly and all but sing.
Robert Frost
Line with Butterfly
The butterfly’s attractiveness derives not only from colors and symmetry: deeper motives contribute to it. We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign.
Primo Levi
Line with Butterfly
Like the butterfly,
I have the strength and the hope to believe
In time
I will emerge from my cocoon...
Kirsti A. Dyer, MD, MS
Line with Butterfly
I became the butterfly. I got out of the cocoon, and I flew.
Lynn Redgrave
Line with Butterfly
Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, flittering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly...suddenly I awoke...
Now 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.
Chuang Tzu
Line with Butterfly
Psyche is the Greek word for Spirit and Butterfly.
Line with Butterfly
Surely ’t is better, when summer is over
To die when all fair things are fading away.
I ’d be a Butterfly.
Thomas Haynes Bayly
Line with Butterfly
When we have done all the work we were sent to do,
we are allowed to shed our bodies,
which imprisons our soul like a cocoon encloses the butterfly
and when the time is right we can let go of it.
Then we will be free of pain, free of fears and free of worries--
free as a beautiful butterfly returning home to God....
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Line with Butterfly
What the caterpillar calls the end, God calls the butterfly.
Author unknown
Line with Butterfly
Hurt no living thing:
Ladybird, nor butterfly,
Nor moth with dusty wing...
Christina Georgina Rossetti
Line with Butterfly
We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.
Carl Sagan
Line with Butterfly
The butterfly counts not months,
but in moments and has time enough.
Author unknown

"How does one become a butterfly?" she asked pensively.Orange Butterfly
"You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar."
