Insects

Famous quotes containing the word insects:

    Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    There are men from whom nature or some peculiar destiny has removed the cover beneath which we hide our own madness. They are like thin-skinned insects whose visible play of muscles seem to make them deformed, though in fact, everything soon turns to its normal shape again.
    —E.T.A.W. (Ernst Theodor Amadeus Wilhelm)
