    The bees pillage the flowers here and there but they make honey
    of them which is all their own; it is no longer thyme or
    marjolaine: so the pieces borrowed from others he will transform
    and mix up into a work all his own.
    [Fr., Les abeilles pillotent deca dela les fleurs; mais elles en
    font aprez le miel, qui est tout leur; ce n'est plus thym, ny
    marjolaine: ainsi les pieces empruntees d'aultruy, il les
    transformera et confondra pour en faire un ouvrage tout sien.]

able, blockhead, to run with the other leg of wood.
