Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Butterfly's wings, vulture's wings, eagle-wings, spread wings of white swans, dragonfly's serene wings, wings of albatross, lovely wings of humming birds, tiny wings of a fly or a bumble-bee-wings; and when they fly, they fly their best according to their ability of flying. We should not underestimate the size of those heavenly wings.”
Munia Khan

“Or it may be that the honey in the cells
has foamed to froth, has risen above

your heart today: not rue, not pity.”
Luisa A. Igloria

August Wilhelm Von Hofmann
“People have wracked their brains for an explanation of benzene and how the celebrated man, August Kekulé, managed to come up with the concept of the benzene theory. With regard to the last point especially, a friend of mine who is a farmer and has a lively interest in chemistry has asked me a question which I would like to share with you. My 'agricultural friend' apparently believes he has traced the origins of the benzene theory. 'Has Kekulé,' so ran the question, 'once been a bee-keeper? You certainly know that bees too build hexagons; they know well that they can store the greatest amount of honey that way with the least amount of wax. I always liked it,' my agricultural friend went on, 'When I received a new issue of the Berichte; admittedly, I don't read the articles, but I like the pictures very much. The patterns of benzene, naphthalene and especially anthracene are indeed wonderful. When I look at the pictures I always have to think of the honeycombs of my bee hives.”
August Wilhelm Von Hofmann

“The past, the present, the future –
The floodgates of time wait for Her footsteps
Yet She resides forever –
In the shape of a rising dawn,
In the sound of a humming bee,
In the chirping of a flying bird,
In the birth of a newborn,
In the blissful serenity of Nature;
For Happiness is but a reflection of simplicity.”
Debatrayee Banerjee, A Whispering Leaf. . .

Maurice Maeterlinck
“We are not wrong, perhaps, to be heedful of justice in the midst of a universe that heeds not at all; as the bee is not wrong to make honey in a world that itself can make none. But we are wrong to desire an external justice, since we know that it does not exist. Let that which is in us suffice. All is for ever being weighed and judged in our soul. It is we who shall judge ourselves; or rather, our happiness is our judge.”
Maurice Maeterlinck

“A bee will visit many flowers in his search for sweet nectar.”
