Quote by Lao Tzu: What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly.

What The Caterpillar Calls The End

This quote by Loa Tzu, the ancient Chinese philosopher, is an allusion with a least a few meanings.  The first of which may be the observation that major transformations of self almost always come through the crucible of trial and tribulation, pain and suffering, and challenge.  And these often seem like disasters that you may not survive when you are in the thick of them.  Yet, more often than not, in the long run, they deliver the magnificent and beautiful new you!

This quote may also be an allusion to the death of the human body.  And the truth that death is just a transition back to your eternal magnificent higher self.
