    So work the honey-bees,
    Creatures that by a rule in nature teach
    The act of order to a peopled kingdom.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Men are not therefore put to death, or punished for that their theft proceedeth from election; but because it was noxious and contrary to men’s preservation, and the punishment conducing to the preservation of the rest, inasmuch as to punish those that do voluntary hurt, and none else, frameth and maketh men’s wills such as men would have them.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)
