Delicate Quotes

I hope you find value in these encouraging quotes about Delicate.

Our loved ones -
whether by blood, by marriage, or by choice -
are delicate treasures.
If we hold them too close, they break -
as a butterfly would.
By honoring and enjoying
the freedom of our loved ones,
we gain our own freedom.
Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Look at this butterfly, so beautiful, so delicate.
I can enjoy this butterfly from a distance,
but if I touched her, she would die.

people also need private space and private time
away from the demands of the world -
even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It attempts to work things out so that
everyone gets just enough stuff to keep them from
getting violent and trying to take other people's stuff.

Our faith gives us knowledge of something better.

to notice and to pay attention.

for all God's creatures - large and small,

for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
