The keeping of bees is like the direction of sunbeams. -Henry David Thoreau

“And your Lord inspired to the bee, “Take for yourself among the houses and among the trees and (In) that which they construct. Then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid (for you)”. There emerges from their bellies drink, varying in colours, in which there is healing for people. Indeed in that a sign for people who give thought”.

-Quran: chapter 16, verse 68-6

 Legend goes, that once a bee was busy in collecting honey, when a bird saw the hard-work she flew over to the bee and asked: “Do you not get sad? You spend all your time making honey and then man comes along and steals it from you. Does it not make all your work insignificant?

To which the bee replied: “Men can steal my honey all they want but they can never steal my art of making honey. And thus my work shall never be insignificant”.
