Famous quotes containing the word sour:

    Most people hew the battlements of life from compromise, erecting their impregnable keeps from judicious submissions, fabricating their philosophical drawbacks from emotional retractions and scalding marauders in the boiling oil of sour grapes.
    Zelda Fitzgerald (1900–1948)
