Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Teena Booth:

    If there is one thing worse than being an ugly duckling in a house of swans, it's having the swans pretend there's no difference.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Metamorphosis is an inherent part and the most profound process of life, in my view. We constantly transform into better versions of ourselves, like an Ugly Duckling transforming to Swan, and a Caterpillar to beautiful Butterfly. The metamorphosis continues throgh the journey of life, and then from generation to generations yet to come. There is an element of elegance and beauty in the fact that we all evolve, metaphorically, to Butterflies with Earth as our Chrysalis.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    If only the ugly duckling had known her differentness would be an awesome asset some day, her earlier life would have been much smoother and enjoyable. We should be happy if we are different, because it's our differentiating differentness that will make a huge difference in the world and advance the humankind. You may be an ugly duckling today in the eyes of society, but you are the beautiful white swan of tomorrow. You are the Star today that will be Supernova tomorrow, illuminating and dazzling the universe as never before. Enjoy and celebrate your differentness today, and think positvely about tomorrow -always!
