Entry 136


When the bee comes to your house, let her have beer; you may want to visit the bee's house some day.
Congo Proverb

Some primal termite knocked on wood;
and tasted it, and found it good.
That is why your Cousin May
fell through the parlor floor today.
Ogden Nash

If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito.
Betty Reese

We are closer to the ants than to butterflies. Very few people can endure much leisure.
Gerald Brenan

Thanks for sharing this funny nash quote. I've made note of your post on Blogden Nash where I report on the reach and influence of Ogden Nash on contemporary life.

Cheers!
