Honey Bee Quotes

A brier rose whose buds yield fragrant harvest for the honey bee.
— Letitia Elizabeth Landon —

Togetherness is the key to success: a lone bee makes hardly any honey; a lone man makes hardly any money.

— Vinita Kinra

Mantova
The first thing I saw in the morning
Was a huge golden bee ploughing
His burly right shoulder into the belly
Of a sleek yellow pear
Low on a bough.
Before he could find that sudden black honey
That squirms around in there
Inside the seed, the tree could not bear any more.
The pear fell to the ground,
With the bee still half alive
Inside its body.
He would have died had I not knelt down
And sliced the pear gently
A little more open.
The bee shuddered, and returned.
Maybe I should have left him a lone there
Drowning in his own delight.
The best days are the first
To flee.

— Richard Wilbur

— Tara Sivec

Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers.

The bee collects honey from flowers in such a way as to do the least damage or destruction to them, and he leaves them whole, undamaged and fresh, just as he found them.

— Saint Francis De Sales

For the bee, honey is the ultimate reality. It represents the fulfillment of her life mission, the triumph over her enemies, the continuity of the hive, the justification for working herself to death. Honey is to bees what money in the bank is to people-a measure of prosperity and well-being. But there is nothing abstract or symbolic about honey, as there is about money, which has no intrinsic value. There is more real wealth in a pound of honey, or a load of manure for that matter, than all the currency in the world. We often destroy the world's real wealth to create an illusion of wealth, confusing symbol and substance. -William Longgood, The Queen Must Die

— Susan Wiggs

What drew her into O'Riley's like a bee to honey was the six-foot, broad-shouldered, dark eyes, dark smile of Finn O'Riley himself.

— Jill Shalvis

The bee that hath honey in her mouth hath a sting in her tail.

— John Lyly

No honey for me, if it comes with a bee.

— Sappho
