What does this mean?

I had a dream where I opened up a book of poetry and read the first line of a poem. It went like this:

If you hold the moth, you must be prepared to be responsible for its demise.

Then I looked down and I was holding an insect in my hand. My friend told me to let it go, but I hesitated for just a moment. Then I let it go and it fluttered to the ground, dead.

My Questions:

Is that line from something else? Is it reminiscent of anything else? (quote from a real poem, book, movie, song, etc?)

What does that line mean?

What does the dream mean?
