The trouble is with socialism, which resembles a form of mental illness more than it does a philosophy. Socialists get bees in their bonnets. And because they chronically lack any critical faculty to examine and evaluate their ideas, and because they are pathologically unwilling to consider the opinions of others, and most of all, because socialism is a mindset that regards the individual – and his rights – as insignificant, compared to whatever the socialist believes the group needs, terrible, terrible things happen when socialists acquire power.
Blossom of the almond trees, April's gift to April's Bees.
Bees are not as busy as we think they are. They jest can't buzz any slower.kin hubbard
A spider conducts operations that resemble those of a weaver, and a bee puts to shame many an architect in the construction of her cells. But what distinguishes the worst of architects from the best of Bees is this, that the architect raises his structure in imagination before he erects it in reality.karl marx
It is usual to speak of the Fascist objective as the "beehive state", which does grave injustice to Bees. A world of rabbits ruled by stoats would be nearer the mark.george orwell
The honey-bee that wanders all day long The field, the woodland, and the garden o'er, To gather in his fragrant winter store, Humming in calm content his winter song, Seeks not alone the rose's glowing breast, The lily's dainty cup, the violet's lips, But from all rank and noxious weeds he sips The single drop of sweetness closely pressed Within the poison chalice.Anne C. Lynch Botta
Keep Bees and grow asparagus, watch the tides and listen to the wind instead of the politicians make up your own stories and believe them if you want to live the good life.
You’ve never seen death? Look in the mirror every day and you will see it like Bees working in a glass hive.jean cocteau
For where's the state beneath the firmamentThat doth excel the Bees for government?guillaume de salluste du bartas
He is not worthy of the honeycombThat shuns the hives because the Bees have stings.
All Nature seems at work. Slugs leave their lair The Bees are stirring birds are on the wing And Winter slumbering in the open air, Wears on his smiling face a dream of Spring! And I the while, the sole unbusy thing, Nor honey make, nor pair, nor build, nor sing.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
His helmet now shall make a hive for Bees, And lovers’ songs be turned to holy psalms; A man-at-arms must now serve on his knees, And feed on prayers, which are old age’s alms.George Peele
Green little vaulter, in the sunny grass, Catching your heart up at the feel of June, Sole noise that's heard amidst the lazy noon, When ev"n the Bees lag at the summoning brass.leigh hunt
In his own verse the poet still we find, In his own page his memory lives enshrined, As in their amber sweets the smothered Bees, As the fair cedar, fallen before the breeze, Lies self-embalmed amidst the mouldering trees.
His helmet now shall make A hive for Bees.
What is not good for the beehive, cannot be good for the Bees.marcus aurelius
The Wreath's of brightest myrtle wove With brilliant tears of bliss among it, And many a rose leaf cull'd by Love To heal his lips when Bees have stung it.thomas moore
