GRAPES
[ Also see Fruits ]

The word of the Lord came unto me again, saying,
  What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?
      - Bible, Ezekiel (ch. XVIII, v. 1-2)

And he said unto them, What have I done new in comparison of you? Is not the gleaning of the grapes of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer?
      - Bible, Judges (ch. VIII, v. 2)

Nay, in death's hand, the grape-stone proves
  As strong as thunder is in Jove's.
      - Abraham Cowley, Elegy upon Anacreon
         (l. 106)

The grape gains its purple tinge by looking at another grape.
  [Lat., Uvaque conspecta livorem ducit ab uva.]
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal), Satires
         (II, 81)
