How doth the little busy bee improve each shining hour?* Well, how doth it indeed? By working. All things cometh to him that waiteth, providing he worketh like hell while he waiteth.

* How doth the little busy bee Improve each shining hour, And gather honey all the day From every opening flower! -Isaac Watts (1674-1748) Divine Songs (1715), 16, Against Idleness and Mischief
