Patience and Hard Work
It has been noted that an ant can carry a twig or leaf over 100 miles just to get it back to the anthill. In
Africa, ants have been known to strip a forest bare. It is a potent example of the "collective mind" as it
carries out its task for the Queen and the colony. Patience has its rewards, and the person with Ant
medicine trusts, that at the end of the day, all their hard work will pay off.
