Quotes and proverbs from a variety of sources, including famous authors.

Isn’t it funny

How a bear likes honey?

Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!

I wonder why he does?

-          From Winnie-the-Pooh  by A. A. Milne



There’s a whisper down the field where the year has shot her yield,

And the ricks stand grey to the sun,

Singing: - ‘Over then, come over, for the bee has quit

the clover,

And your English summer’s done.’

-          From The Long Trail by Rudyard Kipling

While the bee with honied thigh,

That her flowery work doth sing,

And the waters murmuring

And such consort as they keep,

Entice the dewy-feather’d sleep.

-          From L’Allegro – by John Milton

And most of all would I flee from the cruel madness of love –

The honey of poison-flowers and all the measureless ill.

– Tennyson
