Quotes on bees...

Human beings have fabricated the illusion that in the 21st century they have the technological prowess to be independent of nature. Bees underline the reality that we are more, not less, dependent on nature’s services in a world of close to 7 billion people
— Achim Steiner, Executive Director UN Environment Programme (UNEP)
To beekeep or not to beekeep, that is the question?
the bee...gathers it’s materials from the flowers of the garden and of the field, but transforms and digests it by a power of it’s own.
— Leonardo Davinci
His labor is a chant,
His idleness a tune;
Oh, for a bee’s experience
Of clovers and of noon!
— From The Bee by Emily Dickinson
