    सिर्फ रहना ही काफी नहीं है, तितली ने कहा। किसी के पास धूप, स्वतंत्रता और थोड़ा फूल होना चाहिए।

    alleen leven is niet genoeg, zei de vlinder. men moet zonneschijn, vrijheid en een kleine bloem hebben.

    வெறும் வாழ்க்கை போதாது, பட்டாம்பூச்சி என்றார். ஒரு சூரிய ஒளி, சுதந்திரம் மற்றும் ஒரு சிறிய மலர் வேண்டும்.

    تیتلی نے کہا کہ صرف زندہ رہنا ہی کافی نہیں ہے۔ ایک دھوپ ، آزادی ، اور تھوڑا سا پھول ہونا ضروری ہے۔
