WINE, n. Fermented grape-juice known to the Women's Christian Union as 'liquor,' sometimes as 'rum.' Wine, madam, is God's next best gift to man.”

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) 'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)


“The olive tree is surely the richest gift of Heaven, I can scarcely expect bread.”

‘Pleasures of the Table’ (1902)
