-BUG & INSECT QUOTATIONS-
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
If you want to live and thrive, let the spider run alive.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls
I ’d be a butterfly born in a bower,
Habitant of castle gray,
You hail from Dream-land, Dragon-fly?
Bees are black, with gilt surcingles -
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to
be a butterfly.
The butterfly, a cabbage-white,
A fly, Sir, may sting a stately horse and make him wince; but one

When the moon shall have faded out from the sky, and the sun shall
shine at noonday a dull cherry red, and the seas shall be frozen

and crumbled into dust, and all life shall be on the last verge

Hurt no living thing:
Spin and die,
Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly

Nothing seems to please a fly so much as to be taken for a currant;
and if it can be baked in a cake and palmed off on the unwary, it
We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember
with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.
To carry a grudge is like being stung to death by one bee.
The mosquito is the state bird of New Jersey.
How doth the little busy bee
I'VE watched you now a full half-hour;
This great purple butterfly,
