Be like a bee

Be in this worldly life like a bee. When it eats, it eats what is pure (i.e nectar). When it feeds, it feeds on what is pure (i.e honey). And when it lands on something, it does not break it nor cause it ruin.

Ibn al-Qayyim (God bless his soul), referenced in Timeless Seeds of Advice by B. B. Abdulla
