“What would it be like to live as a butterfly, being admired by the world for your color and beauty and grace? What would it be like to live as a spider, having people shriek and jump and throw a shoe at the very notice of you?
I have tasted both―looks of desire and repulsion.
How sad it is that we judge a life by such a trivial thing as appearance.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich

  1. What a thoughtful quote! And I’m glad you chose the (conventional) beast rather than the beauty to illustrate.

    1. Glad you thought so Cate. I could have gone for the butterfly seeing how people tend to like colorful pretty photos more. But I thought this was kind of cool looking and more suitable for this quote.
