ANTS
[ Also see Insects ]

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. VI, v. 6)

Ants are good citizens they place group interests first.
      - Clarence Day

Ants never sleep.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature (ch. IV)

For example, the tiny ant, a creature of great industry, drags with its mouth whatever it can, and adds it to the heap which she is piling up, not unaware nor careless of the future.
  [Lat., Parvula (nam exemplo est) magni formica laboris
    Ore trahit, quodcunque potest, atque addit acervo
      Quem struit; hand ignara ac non incauta futuri.]
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), Satires
         (bk. I, I, 33)

While an ant was wandering under the shade of the tree of Phaeton, a drop of amber enveloped the tiny insect; thus she, who in life was disregarded, became precious by death.
      - Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis),
        Epigrams (bk. VI, ep. 15)
