"A deck of cards - 4"
Lagt inn av Åshild
And here comes this week's card. I've made a colorful background using alcoholic ink on glossy paper. Love that ink! :)
A butterfly is maybe not a typical symbol, but to me the butterfly has a symbolic effect, and I use the butterfly a lot when I create.
The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore
May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly. ~Richard Bach
But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:
And now from having ridden out desire
They lie closed over in the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.
~Robert Frost, "Blue-Butterfly Day"
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 Anderson
Love is like a butterfly: It goes where it pleases and it pleases wherever it goes. ~Author Unknown
I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free. ~Charles Dickens
