Butterflies are important economically as agents of pollination. Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.

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

“If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies…”- author unknown

The Ancient Greek word for “butterfly” is ψυχή (psȳchē), which primarily means “soul”, “mind”.

“How does one become a butterfly?” she asked. “You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”
