Quotations about Butterflies (part 1)

I am trying to make this blog, of which the title is: thekupu and the description is taken from one of Richard Buckminster's quotation, represent the title and the owner as well. Butterfly here and there. Metamorphotos, Butterfly Terms and kupu's designs are not enough. I'll add some more, and it's quotation about butterfly today :D

Considering that I found a lot quotations which has butterfly in the sentence, so I divide this post into 2 parts. Let's start with the first one...

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
~ Rabindranath Tagore

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
~ Irish Blessing

Butterflies are self propelled flowers.
~ R.H. Heinlein

If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies. ~ Author Unknown

The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity.  ~ Attributed to George Carlin

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.  ~ Richard Bach

But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:And now from having ridden out desireThey lie closed over in the wind and clingWhere wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.~Robert Frost, "Blue-Butterfly Day"

I saw a poet chase a butterfly in a meadow.  He put his net on a bench where a boy sat reading a book.  It's a misfortune that it is usually the other way round. ~Karl Kraus

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.  And everyone deserves a little sunshine.  ~ Jeffrey Glassberg

The butterfly is a flying flower,The flower a tethered butterfly.~Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.  ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.  Richard Buckminster Fuller

They seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if they had surprised a butterfly in the winter woods.  ~ Edith Wharton

With the rose the butterfly's deep in love,A thousand times hovering round;But round himself, all tender like gold,The sun's sweet ray is hovering found.~Heinrich Heine, "New Spring"

Love is like a butterfly:  It goes where it pleases and it pleases wherever it goes. ~ Author Unknown

I only ask to be free.  The butterflies are free. ~ Charles Dickens

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

And what's a butterfly? At best,He's but a caterpillar, at rest.~ John Grey

Flowers and butterflies drift in color, illuminating spring.  ~ Author Unknown

We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.  ~ Carl Sagan
