To BE or Not to BE, That is the question

I looked up the definitions for BE and BEE at dictionary.com.

BE:
  • to exist or live
  • to take place, happen or occur
  • to occupy a place or position
  • to continue to remain as before
  • to belong
BEE:
  • any hymenopterous insect of the superfamily Apoidea, as the bumble bee or honey bee or carpenter bee etc.
  • a community social gathering in order to perform some task, engage in a contest, etc: a sewing bee or spelling bee
Quotes:
"The bee's knees" a person or thing that is wonderful, great , or marvelous (from the 1920's)
"Busy Bee" a person who has lots of things to do
"Make a beeline"  a direct route traveled quickly 

"To have a BEE in one's bonnet," is to BE obsessed with one idea. 

"Stung by the splendor of a sudden thought." ~Robert Browning

I have been stung by the BEE in my Bonnet, "My BE List!"
