Ants - Food Quotes


“To appreciate the strength and speed of this pesky invertebrate [ants], consider that a leaf cutter the size of a man could run repeated four-minute miles while carrying 750 lbs. of potato salad.”

R.Z Sheppard (Time, 9/3/1990)

 

“At high tide the fish eat ants; at low tide the ants eat fish.”

Thai Proverb

 

“The dog that buried the bone which even a canine appetite could not manage, the squirrel that gathered nuts for a later feast, the bees that filled the comb with honey, the ants that laid up stores for a rainy day - these were among the first creators of civilization. It was they....who taught our ancestors the art of providing for tomorrow out of the surplus of today, or of preparing for winter in summer's time of plenty.”

Will Durant, 'Our Oriental Heritage' (1935)
