Even though the bee is small, there she is on the flower, doing something of value. And the value she creates there contributes to a larger ecosystem of value, in that mountain meadow, in that range of mountains, in the world and even the universe. And can’t you just feel how happy she is?

Isaac Watts

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every opening flower!

Sue Hubbell

I like pulling on a baggy bee suit, forgetting myself and getting as close to the bees’ lives as they will let me, remembering in the process that there is more to life than the merely human.

The Bees

If we die, we’re taking you with us.

Maurice Maeterlinck

If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.

Elizabeth Lawrence

It is not how busy you are, but why you are busy — the bee is praised, the mosquito is swatted.
