Moment of Beauty

“We delight in the beauty

of the butterfly, but rarely admit

the changes it has gone through

to achieve that beauty.” 

— Maya Angelou


“Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.” — Henry David Thoreau
