“Go to the ant thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise” -

Bible: Proverbs 6:6

Hebrew: לך אל הנמלה עצל; ראה דרכיה וחכם" – משלי ו, ו

Ants are great teachers . There are things you can learn from ants that will help you succeed professionally more than your academic or technical education. Ants are diligent and prudent: diligent by working hard without coercion, and prudent by saving part of all production. These two basic necessities for success are generally neglected in modern societies, where pleasure is worshipped and deficit spending is encouraged.

Olá Tsilla,
All wisdom is at Bible.
Nice proverb and very well done photo.
Love it.

Hello Tsilla, an interesting proverb that I was unfamiliar with, but you have illustrated it beautifully with this picture.
As you say, ants are amazing creatures as your picture shows.
For once the text on the frame is totally appropriate.
Tfs, regards Jean.
