Grape Quotes

“Beulah, peel me a grape.”
Mae West in 'I'm No Angel' (1933)


“Always eat grapes downward -- that is eat the best grapes first; in this way there will be none better left on the bunch, and each grape will seem good down to the last. If you eat the other way, you will not have a good grape in the lot.”
Samuel Butler (1835-1902)


“The tartness of his face sours ripe grapes....”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'Coriolanus'


"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. 'Much obliged', said he, pushing the plate aside; 'I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills.'"
Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, (1755-1826)
'The Physiology of Taste'.


    “GRAPE, n.
    Hail noble fruit! -- by Homer sung,
    Anacreon and Khayyam;
    Thy praise is ever on the tongue
    Of better men than I am.
    The lyre in my hand has never swept,
    The song I cannot offer:
    My humbler service pray accept --
    I'll help to kill the scoffer.
    The water-drinkers and the cranks
    Who load their skins with liquor --
    I'll gladly bear their belly-tanks
    And tap them with my sticker.
    Fill up, fill up, for wisdom cools
    When e'er we let the wine rest.
    Here's death to Prohibition's fools,
    And every kind of vine-pest!
    Jamrach Holobom”

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


“The vine bears three kinds of grapes: the first of pleasure, the second of intoxication, the third of disgust.”
Anacharsis, Scythian philosopher (6th century B.C.)
