The Butterfly and my moment of confession.

The Butterfly and my moment of confession.

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. _ Rabindranath Tagore

I have had this quote in my archive for a while now. Not so long ago, I posted it on my Instagram account. A mate once texted me to say that the quotes that I upload either on my Instagram or here made him think, most especially the one above.

I have a confession to make. I have struggled to make proper meaning of the quote myself for as long as I had come across it. I thought I’d sound stupid telling him that I have contemplated numerous times in order to make perfect sense of it too. As a matter of fact, unlike the butterfly, time isn’t enough for me to keep wallowing in my thoughts. I decided to see what ‘Mr Google’ had to say about it. I gladly found that someone had written a piece on the quote.

My apologies because I will not attempt to deconstruct it so as not to misinterpret its meaning. But if you are curious to know and want to learn new things like I try to do, please check Reverberations with the post “The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has enough time”, it is brilliant and insightful.

I guess this has been an account of my moment of confession (of not knowing everything), learning and discovery, I hope to have other moments that will be worth your time if you can spare a little.

Thank you very much for stopping by and please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts on the quote and how it impacts you.
