Butterfly Quotes 1 - 2
Literature and butterflies are the two sweetest passions known to man
Vladimir Nabokov

Musical ideas sprang to my mind like a flight of butterflies, and all I had to do was to stretch out my hand to catch them.
Charles Gounod

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

Do ye not comprehend that we are worms born to bring forth the angelic butterfly that flieth unto judgment without screen?
Dante Alighieri

This magnificent butterfly finds a little heap of dirt and sits still on it; but man will never on his heap of mud keep still.
Joseph Conrad

She was the prettiest, silliest, most affected, husband-hunting butterfly ever.
Mary Russell Mitford
On Jane Austen.

When a small child, I thought that success spelled happiness. I was wrong, happiness is like a butterfly which appears and delights us for one brief moment, but soon flits away.
Anna Pavlova

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

Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?
Alexander Pope

Never touch a butterfly's wing with your finger.
Sidonie Gabrielle

We are closer to the ants than to butterflies. Very few people can endure much leisure.
Gerald Brenan

The tulip and the butterfly
Appear in gayer coats than I:
Let me be dressed fine as I will,
Flies, worms, and flowers exceed me still.
Isaac Watts

Gray sail against the sky,
Gray butterfly!
Have you a dream for going.
Or are you the blind wind's blowing?
Dana Burnet

I'd be a butterfly, born in a bower,
Where roses and lilies and violets meet.
Thomas Haynes Bayly (Bayley)

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

In nature a repulsive caterpillar turns into a lovely butterfly. But with humans it is the other way around: a lovely butterfly turns into a repulsive caterpillar.
Anton Chekhov

Once I read a story about a butterfly in the subway, and today, I saw one. It got on at 42nd, and off at 59th, where, I assume it was going to Bloomingdales to buy a hat that will turn out to be a mistake - as almost all hats are.
Meg Ryan as Kathleen Kelly
From movie, You're Got Mail.

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

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