Bacon on ants, spiders and bees

Aphorism 95 from Francis Bacon's 1620 work The New Organon, or True  Directions Concerning the Interpretation of Nature:

"Those who have handled sciences have been either men of experiment  or men of dogmas. The men of experiment are like the ant, they only  collect and use; the reasoners resemble spiders, who make cobwebs out  of their own substance. But the bee takes a middle course: it gathers  its material from the flowers of the garden and of the field, but  transforms and digests it by a power of its own."
