Isn't she doing something more akin to advising us HOW to live life to the fullest? If we take only a little (living abstemiously) we can adjust our perception to see a little as a lot (a mere rose being an estate).

she is saying we should live life to the fullest.to get all we can out of life for the short time we are here on earth.like when bees go from flower to flower gathering pollen to make honey they are able to feed themselves and fertilize the plants so they are a never ending source of life.
