“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.”
Sue Hubbell, A Book of Bees: And How to Keep Them

“The only time I ever believed that I knew all there was to know about beekeeping was the first year I was keeping them. Every year since I’ve known less and less and have accepted the humbling truth that bees know more about making honey than I do.”
Sue Hubbell, A Book of Bees: And How to Keep Them

“[N]o such thing as objective writing, . . . every inscription, every traveler's tale, every news account, every piece of technical writing, tells more about the author and his time than it does about the ostensible subject.”
Sue Hubbell, Waiting for Aphrodite: Journeys into the Time Before Bones
