Some of the most beautiful things in life come from unsuspecting situations, so use these quotes about butterflies to inspire your own metamorphosis! The butterfly has one of the most fascinating life cycles of all creatures. Before growing into an adult, it goes through various stages, with each stage having a different goal. For instance, caterpillars need to eat a lot, while adults need to reproduce. The butterfly starts life as a tiny egg which hatches to form a caterpillar. Once it has hatched, the caterpillar needs to eat plenty of food so it can grow quickly. As soon as the caterpillar is done growing, it forms itself into a pupa — the resting and changing stage.
