Bee Quotes by Einstein

Bee Quotes by Einstein

If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.
– Albert Einstein

Apparently, Einstein was not joking when he made that statement. Here’s an excerpt from BBC.

Bees are critical pollinators: they pollinate 70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world. Honey bees are responsible for $30 billion a year in crops. That’s only the start. We may lose all the plants that bees pollinate, all of the animals that eat those plants and so on up the food chain.

So, what will happen when bees suddenly go extinct? We will eventually run out of corps and other produces. Our lifestock animals will perish as well since they don’t have any food. And that’s the end of our beginning. So, next time you see bees, be kind to them. Don’t go swatting them like they’re some kind of pest. They’re actually responsible of delivering foods to your dinner table.

Bumblebee Quotes

Bumblebee Quotes

Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it, so it goes on flying anyway.
– Mary Kay Ash

Remember, the bumblebee does something impossible everyday. It is not designed to fly. Its body is too heavy for its light wings; tiny wings that should not be able to keep it in the air. But the bumblebee refuses to accept such limitation. It flies in spite of what’s been told. It knows its strength.

In a sea of daisies,
Busy with her duties,
I know a little bumblebee.
With the cutest pout if you let her be.

Polinating flowers,
Yet every stem she crumbles,
And as she buzzes on her adventures,
From daisy to daisy she fumbles.
– Mhalevono Thong

Today I saw a honey bee and we had a frank discussion. He said he’d joined an orchestra and that he played percussion. I asked him, “What’s your favorite piece?”
He gave a little cough and said, “Flight of the Bumblebee.”

“Buzz, buzz, buzz,” said the bumblebee.
Here it comes, he’s after me.
Oh no he’s not, for I can see.
He’s on his way to the apple tree.

It is scientifically proven that the bumblebee should not be able to fly because their wingspan is too short for their weight. But the bumblebee overcomes and flies. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t do.

Honey Bee Poems

Honey Bee Poems

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every shining flower!

How skillfully she builds her cell!
How neat she spreads the wax!
And labors hard to store it well
With the sweet food she makes.

by Isaac Watts

A honeybee hovers
Over my lawn,
Scouting nectar
Like a drone.
He hums a song
I love to hear:
Honey, he hums,
I’m coming home.

by Francie Lynch

And now you ask in your heart,
“How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?”

Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.

For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.

People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.

by Khalil Gibran

I am the honeybee,
Maker of the blood of the sun,
I dip into the flower,
And adorn myself in dusty light.

They take my liquid gold,
And keep it as a delicacy,
Forlorn, the sun will fall,
I hear the honeybee’s buzzing symphony.

by Juliet

Like trains of cars on tracks of plush
I hear the level bee:
A jar across the flowers goes,
Their velvet masonry

Withstands until the sweet assault
Their chivalry consumes,
While he, victorious, tilts away
To vanquish other blooms.

His feet are shod with gauze,
His helmet is of gold;
His breast, a single onyx
With chrysoprase, inlaid.

His labor is a chant,
His idleness a tune;
Oh, for a bee’s experience
Of clovers and of noon!

by Emily Dickinson

Bee Movie Quotes

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. It’s wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway, because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.
