"A man who is stingy with saffron is capable of seducing his own grandmother."
Norman Douglas, English Writer (1868-1952)
“I must have saffron to colour the warden pies; mace; dates? - none, that's out of my note; nutmegs, seven; a race or two of ginger, but that I may beg; four pound of prunes, and as many of raisins o' the sun.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
('The Winter's Tale' - Clown, the Shepherd's son is planning a sheep-shearing feast)
