Grapes

Famous quotes containing the word grapes:

    Now, from the Gates of Hercules we flood
    Westward, westward till the barbarous brine
    Whelms us to the tired land where tasseling corn,
    Fat beans, grapes sweeter than muscadine
    Rot on the vine: in that land were we born.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    The television critic, whatever his pretensions, does not labour in the same vineyard as those he criticizes; his grapes are all sour.
    Frederic Raphael (b. 1931)

    The silent vertebrate in brown
    Contracts and concentrates, withdraws;
    Rachel née Rabinovitch
    Tears at the grapes with murderous paws.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
