"My Friends we see the laborious Bee, In Gardens, Orchards, Fields,
To seek and suck what yields A sweet and wholsom Sap;
Here She loves to tarry, and that Juice to carry Into her HIVE.
Thus Let us strive to Imitate the same, Accounting it a Shame
If we should fail to gather some good things for our Reader."
-from the commonplace book of Francis Daniel Pastorius
