No wonder writers and philosophers have been inspired by Bees and wrote a lot about them.
They have a lot to teach us, they fascinate us, they are gorgeous, and their importance to mankind is beyond measure.
“Everything takes time. Bees have to move very fast to stay still.”
“To be successful, one has to be one of three bees – the queen bee, the hardest working bee, or the bee that does not fit in.”
“The men of experiment are like the ant; they only collect and use. But the bee…gathers its materials from the flowers of the garden and of the field, but transforms and digests it by a power of its own. “
– Leonardo da Vinci
