Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 4 - Chapter 1 - Verse 2


सन्नियच्छाभिभो मन्युं निबोध श्रावितं च मे ।सर्वत: सारमादत्ते यथा मधुकरो बुध: ॥ २ ॥


sanniyacchābhibho manyuṁnibodha śrāvitaṁ ca mesarvataḥ sāram ādatteyathā madhu-karo budhaḥ


My dear Lord, please pacify your anger completely and hear patiently whatever I submit before you. Please turn your kind attention to this. I may be very poor, but a learned man takes the essence of knowledge from all places, just as a bumblebee collects honey from each and every flower.
