    • 1942: Here in Macedonia I learned that honey is not so successful as one believes, that no bee ever realizes its full intention, and that the perfumer is a clumsy bungler who never cracks the fragile crib he covets, by approaching a town built in the Turkish manner, with a multitude of little gardens, at a time when the sun had been working for many hours 6n the acacia trees. — Rebecca West, Black Lamb and Grey Falcon (Canongate 2006, p. 795)
