Metamorphosis
You cannot attach wings
to a caterpillar
and expect it to fly
You must wait for transformation
to a butterfly

"Everyone may confirm his belief in the Divine when he considers those insects which, when impelled by the craving of a sort of love, ardently seek for a change from their earth-bound state to one like that of heaven. For this purpose they creep into suitable places, weave round themselves a cocoon and thus, as it were, return into the womb to be born again, becoming pupae and finally butterflies. When they have passed through these changes, and put on their beautiful wings after their kind, they fly into the air as into a heaven of their own, where they sport in happy mood, choose mates, lay eggs, and provide for themselves a prosperity. In this state they feed upon a sweet and pleasant nectar drawn from the flowers. Anyone who confirms his belief in the Divine from the visible things of nature sees an image of man's earthly state in them as insects, and of his heavenly state in them as butterflies."
