A Butterflies Wings…

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

It’s been said that when a butterfly moves its wings it is felt on the other side of the world.  That’s how important our thoughts, words and actions are. Imagine that if a delicate butterfly influences the world that much how much we humans can influence our world.  

I looked up quotes on butterflies and found so many beautiful ones I didn’t know which to choose. Here are some that I especially like.  

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

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

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

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

Our words are even more powerful than a butterfly’s wings. Because of the Divine Presence within each of us, our thoughts and words create our world. What we think, say and the actions we take are more important than most of us realize. Our thoughts, words and actions are the cause. An effect always follows a cause.
