"Lady butterfly"

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

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”
--Hans Christian Anderson

Lady butterfly
perfumes her wings
by floating
over the orchid.

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