To me, it represents beauty, changes, taking flight, simplicity and peace. At first, its an ugly caterpillar and no one will give it a second look. but with time and dedication, it becomes something marvelous to the human eye. Its a natural wonder. So, with my life, after getting through some tough times, a butterfly just reminded me of myself actually. I had to take time and appreciate what I had and what I hope to be in the future.
  • I just got my butterfly tattoo a week ago and for me it means a new life, a new beginning if you will.

I just started college last fall and I am changing in ways that I would never of even think of. So mine it means changes and enjoying life to its fullest
  • Traditionally butterflies are pretty and so many people want them as mere decoration. In a deeper sense butterflies represent rebirth or transformation from the caterpillar to the beautiful butterfly.
  • A friend of mine got a butterfly tattoo recently. Just because she likes butterflies. It doesn't "mean" anything! Check out tattoo symbolism here: http://tattoo.about.com/cs/beginners/a/symbols_intro.htm But remember, sometimes a rose is just a rose. It doesn't mean or symbolize anything!
  • It could represent different things for different people. Here are some examples of Butterfly symbolism: Change, Joy and/or Color. The butterfly can also represent transition and freedom as well as peace. The native Americans believe that if you tell a secret to a butterfly it is ever safe in there keeping, given that a butterfly can not speak. Some people use a butterfly to symbolize someone close that has passed away, I believe that some European cultures believe that spirits or souls are trapped in white butterflies. Others just like the look of butterfly and the tat may not represent anything significant to them.
  • A purple butterfly symbolizes the fight against Lupus, a type of cancer . . . my mother has it.
  • Obviously the meaning of a tattoo totally depends on the person, I think the last definition is the most accurate, but nevertheless I'd like to share the meaning of my butterfly tattoo with you. First of all I shall tell you a story of a butterfly. When my grandma died and before she was buried she was placed in her coffin in a closed gloomy room with neither windows nor ventilation. Just a pathetic electric bulb lighted her while her loved ones said their last goodbyes, but when they entered the room they found a butterfly flying around with its brightly colored wings. It is a mystery how it arrived there.
  • Butterfly tattoos are among the most popular tattoos today and the most frequently requested tattoo designs especially among women. This shows the major growth of women in the tattoo industry as a whole. Butterfly tattoo designs of course are popular among females just for their beauty. There is also a deep symbolism behind the butterfly how a buttefly starts as a caterpiller and goes through a major change to become a beautiful butterfly. The symbol is impermanence and instability of earthly life. The amazing process of change.

What is a counter argument for no murdering or abuse?

While there are always grey areas under the law in which the crime of murder might, on consideration in a court of law, be found to be a lesser crime, the terms 'murder' or 'abuse' both denote wrongdoing in a legal sense.

The term 'murder', in a moral sense and taken as being committed with ill-intent towards the victim, always denotes wrongdoing.

The term 'abuse' also describes wrondoing, but is subject to a great deal of messing about by those who need, or want to claim, excuses for abusing others. In real-life terms, 'abuse' means deliberately doing something to someone else in order to hurt them, in one way or another, so let's assume that's what we're talking about here.

To argue that nobody should be allowed commit murder or any other form of abuse against another, takes us inevitably to the conclusion that nobody should commit murder or other abuse against others, and that nobody should escape punishment if they commit these offences.

A counterargument, then, cannot exist if we are using the terms 'murder' or 'abuse' in their usual and universal sense. We can't argue logically that we are in favour of the murder or abuse of others, or at least not in those words.

Arguments have been presented for, to give one example, compulsory killing of defective babies, or defective humans of any age, but these arguments don't use the term 'murder' to describe the proposed actions. One term used to describe this practice is 'eugenics'; another is 'cleansing (of the human species, or of individual cultural groups)', or even 'culling'.

Similarly, there are arguments for, as another example, the punishment of children by hitting them or otherwise abusing them in order to improve their learning or general behaviour. These arguments, again, don't use the term 'abuse' to describe the proposed methods of behaviour enhancement; terms used are 'discipline' and 'teaching' and so on. Interestingly, those who are convinced hitting children is a good way to help them learn don't use the term 'hit', but say, instead, 'smack'.

In that reasoning, if an adult hits a child with educational intent, it's a 'smack'. If the child hits back in retaliation, the child should be 'smacked' again to teach it 'hitting' is wrong.

Playing with, or manipulation of, words is perhaps the only way a counterargument could be mounted to an argument against murder or abuse, by calling 'murder' or 'abuse' something else and then explaining why whatever word we use instead of 'murder' or 'abuse' is a good thing.

Otherwise, a reasonable counterargument for either action, given the accepted usage of the terms, might be to suggest murder or abuse is perfectly okay from the perpetrator's point of view, provided the person committing the murder or abuse is sociopathic (psychopathic).

Imagery

What is the effect of alliteration?

In regular writing and speech, alliteration provides emphasis, and sometimes aids in memory because it is catchy and perhaps humorous. For instance, if you title your speech "The Menace of Money" rather than "Money is Bad," people will be more likely to remember it. In poetry, sometimes it adds to the spoken form of a poem as well (many poets consider the spoken form of a poem part of the art).
