“Turn away lest your saliva fall on someone. If anything purulent falls on the ground, tread upon it, lest it nauseate someone.”
Desiderius Erasmus (1466? - 1536)
“Honey comes out of the air....At early dawn the leaves of trees are found bedewed with honey.... Whether this is the perspiration of the sky or a sort of saliva of the stars, or the moisture of the air purging itself, nevertheless it brings with it the great pleasure of its heavenly nature. It is always of the best quality when it is stored in the best flowers.”
Pliny (A.D. 23-79)
‘Natural History’, book 20
