    Caught more bees

    How does the phrase go?
    Caught more bees with honey? What is that phrase and the correct way it goes.

    You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

    People are more likely to do what you want if you are are sweet/nice than if you are sour/rude.

    Although Barb _D, keeping it literal, you must realise that you will actually catch more flies with POO rather than honey or vinegar.
