Honey Quotes

“Stands the church clock at ten to three?  And is there honey still for tea?”
Rupert Brooke, English poet (1887-1915)

 

"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

 

“If you have no Honey in your Pot, have some in your Mouth.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
Poor Richard's Almanac

 

“Tart Words make no Friends: a spoonful of honey will catch more flies than Gallon of Vinegar.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
Poor Richard's Almanac

 

“The Honey is sweet, but the Bee has a Sting.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
Poor Richard's Almanac

 

"The only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey....and the only reason for making honey is so I can eat it."
Winnie the Pooh in A.A. Milne's
'The House at Pooh Corner'

 

"And John himself was clothed in camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey."
Matthew 3:4

 

    “The pedigree of Honey does not concern the Bee -
    A Clover, any time, to him, Is Aristocracy.”

    Emily Dickinson, American poet (1830-1886)

     

“'Bee vomit,' my brother said once, 'that's all honey is,' so that I could not put my tongue to its jellied flame without tasting regurgitated blossoms.”
Rita Dove ‘In the Old Neighborhood’

 

    “The sweetest honey
    Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
    And in the taste confounds the appetite.”

    William Shakespeare (1564-1616) ‘Romeo and Juliet’
