Butterfly Proverbs

I couldn't help but try and Google the butterfly proverb I was thinking of in my previous post from earlier, but I couldn't find it... maybe it was talking about birds instead? The closest one I could find was this one:

    Love is like a butterfly, hold it too tight, it'll crush, hold it too loose, it'll fly

These were also quite revelating:

    The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
    --Rabindranath Tagore
    You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
    If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies.
