Day #245 Shakespeare was a Beekeeper, Right?

Scholars have recently determined that William Shakespeare, formerly of Stratford-upon-Avon, was a hobbyist beekeeper. A vital clue to this hitherto unknown facet of his life was revealed after a thorough examination of his writings.

Do you know what that clue was?

Post your answer in a comment – or email it to me…

Hamlet is the most obvious, so how about these:

"Bee not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em."
Twelfth Night (II, v, 156-159)

"Lord, what fools these mortals bee!"
A Midsummer Night's Dream Act 3, scene 2, 115

All three of you are winners.

I think it's great that you all came up with differing quotations.

And, you know what? You're all correct.

But I do have to say that Jamey picked the most obscure quotation of the group -- one I hadn't even considered.

So, Jamey, you get the ribbon -- the color is honeybee gold, of course.
