Karl Von Frisch

Karl Ritter von Frisch, ForMemRS (20 November 1886 – 12 June 1982) was a German-Austrian ethologist. His work centered on investigations of the sensory perceptions of the honey bee and he was one of the first to translate the meaning of the waggle dance. His theory, described in his 1927 book Aus dem Leben der Bienen (translated into English as The Dancing Bees), was disputed by other scientists and greeted with skepticism at the time. Only much later was it shown to be an accurate theoretical analysis.friday quote

    To find these positive quotes at the beginning of the week, is so inspirational. The quote that motivated me the most, is the one from Leo Tolstoy “One can no more approach people without love than one can approach bees without care. Such is the quality of bees…” It is so true that we need to all remember that when we approach somebody, we need to do it with love. I did like the other quotes as well.

    My first presumption are thoughts or opinion on religious or personal beliefs. 

    But your bright image of bees got my attention. I think they are cute. 

    Then reading the quotes brought out the power of positivism and impact in reality.

    The historical back up gave the quotes extra authority for readers to believe and reflect.

    I appreciate your organization and presentation. Well done!

    To track down these positive statements toward the start of the week is so moving. Such is the nature of honey bees. It is consistent with the point that we need to all recall that we need to do it with adoration when we approach someone. I preferred different statements also.
