Famous quotes containing the words butterflies and/or blue:

    We must remain as close to the flowers, the grass, and the butterflies as the child is who is not yet so much taller than they are. We adults, on the other hand, have outgrown them and have to lower ourselves to stoop down to them. It seems to me that the grass hates us when we confess our love for it.—Whoever would partake of all good things must understand how to be small at times.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Tom-tom, c’est moi. The blue guitar
    And I are one.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
