Famous quotes containing the word sour:

    Love that comes too late,
    Like a remorseful pardon slowly carried,
    To the great sender turns a sour offense,
    Crying, “That’s good that’s gone.”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There is too much sour grapes for my taste in the present American attitude. The time to denounce the bankers was when we were all feeding off their gold plate; not now! At present they have not only my sympathy but my preference. They are the last representatives of our native industries.
    Edith Wharton (1862–1937)
