If you could say to a caterpillar:
‘You were an egg, and you will become a butterfly!’
He would reply:
‘Foul beast!’ or else, ‘You are imagining things, or seek to unhinge me!’ or, again: ‘I want to be one now, this instant.’
Or he might say: ‘Who are you to tell me such things?’
Or, yet again: ‘Yes, show me, while I crawl up this tree.’
