We Will All Laugh at Gilded Butterflies Meaning?

Answer

Shakespeare said 'We will all laugh at gilded butterflies' but what did this mean? It means you must laugh at something that is by nature beautiful but has been 'beautified' in order to be something that it is not. In its exaggerated beautification it destroys (by being weighed down - gilded) the essence of what it was intended to be (its true colors and true self) and intended to do (fly).
