The bees pillage the flowers here and there but they make honey of them which is all their own; it is no longer thyme or marjolaine: so the pieces borrowed from others he will transform and mix up into a work all his own.

[Fr., Les abeilles pillotent deca dela les fleurs; mais elles en font aprez le miel, qui est tout leur; ce n’est plus thym, ny marjolaine: ainsi les pieces empruntees d’aultruy, il les transformera et confondra pour en faire un ouvrage tout sien.]
