The Butterfly...

Monday, July 08, 2013

The Butterfly upon the Sky,by Emily Dickinson

The Butterfly upon the Sky,
That doesn't know its Name
And hasn't any tax to pay
And hasn't any Home
Is just as high as you and I,
And higher, I believe,
So soar away and never sigh
And that's the way to grieve

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

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower." Hans Christian Andersen

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

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. Andre Gide

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. Author Unknown

Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time. Deborah Chaskin..

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. Vita Sackville-West

I do not know whether I was then a woman dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a woman. Chuang Tzu
