Fruit quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#1. It is only in proportion as the Christian manifests the fruit of a genuine conversion that he is entitled to regard himself and be regarded by others as one of the called and elect of God. It is just in proportion as we add to our faith the other Christian graces that we have solid ground on which to rest in the assurance we belong to the family of Christ. It is not those who are governed by self-will, but "as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God" (Rom. 8:14). #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Fruit quotes by Neel Burton
#2. Just as Prometheus delivered stolen fire to man, so Eve, and the serpent, delivered man into self-consciousness, setting him up, were it not for his short lifespan, as rival to God. At the same time, man's self-consciousness removed him from nature into a life of toil, doubt, fear, guilt, shame, blame, enmity, loneliness, and frailty - and the product of this separation, the fruit and flower of this exile, is, of course, culture. 'God,' said the writer Victor Hugo, 'made only water, but man made wine. #Quote by Neel Burton
Fruit quotes by Mooji
#3. There is a Silence that is totally impersonal.
It is not the fruit of anybody's work.
Peace is there, but there is no peacekeeper.
This Peace is only known when the noise of the person is not present.
In the absence of the 'person' there are no distractions.
Only the ever-pure Awareness prevails.
The Ultimate is nobody's achievement at all. #Quote by Mooji
Fruit quotes by Mary Renault
#4. Nothing will change, Alexias. No, that is false; there is change whenever there is life, and already we are not the two who met in Taureas' palaestra. But what kind of fool would plant an apple-slip, to cut it down at the season when the fruit is setting? Flowers you can get every year, but only with time the tree that shades your doorway and grows into the house with each year's sun and rain. #Quote by Mary Renault
Fruit quotes by Lou Silluzio
#5. Makes me sad looking at the leaves on my vines turning gold and brown, the branches bare of fruit, but I know the leaves and the fruit will return next spring once more.
But unlike lost love ,the love of writing,the love of nature ,the love of beauty,the love of life once its lost its lost forever, I hope i never ever lose that love. #Quote by Lou Silluzio
Fruit quotes by Kathleen Norris
#6. Poets are immersed in process, and I mean process not as an amorphous blur but as a discipline. The hard work of writing has taught me that in matters of the heart, such as writing, or faith, there is no right or wrong way to do it, but only the way of your life. Just paying attention will teach you what bears fruit and what doesn't. But it will be necessary to revise
to doodle, scratch out, erase, even make a mess of things
in order to make it come out right. #Quote by Kathleen Norris
Fruit quotes by Shahzad Ashraf
#7. No matter how long you behest, to the fruit draped tree.
It will do you no best, until a shingle you free. #Quote by Shahzad Ashraf
Fruit quotes by Jarod Kintz
#8. I'll tell you, I go absolutely bananas for phallic-shaped fruit. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Fruit quotes by Will Durant
#9. Every civilization is a fruit from the sturdy tree of barbarism, and falls at the greatest distance from its trunk. #Quote by Will Durant
Fruit quotes by Barry Humphries
#10. I Sellotape whole tins of sardines to my face at night, attach two squeezed lemon rinds to my armadillo-skinned elbows, and put cucumber on my eyes. By the time I'm finished, I look like a fruit salad with added fish. In the morning, the pillow is pretty much a write-off. #Quote by Barry Humphries
Fruit quotes by Joe Wenke
#11. How does the capacity to do evil exist, if that capacity is not within the creator as well? It's just not possible. The fruit that Adam and Eve eat is from "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." Interesting. So according to Genesis the knowledge of good and evil existed before Adam and Eve ate the fruit and thereby gained access to that knowledge, and if the knowledge of good and evil existed, then good and evil existed as well, and it all came from God, the creator. Obviously. Also, God didn't have to unleash suffering and death on everybody who ever lives forever and ever until the end of the world because two people ate a piece of fruit. He just felt like it. #Quote by Joe Wenke
Fruit quotes by Shirin Ebadi
#12. Human rights is the fruit of various civilizations. #Quote by Shirin Ebadi
Fruit quotes by Edmond Rostand
#13. My soul, be satisfied with flowers,
With fruit, with weeds even; but gather them
In the one garden you may call your own. #Quote by Edmond Rostand
Fruit quotes by Joe Churchwell
#14. This, too, shall pass. Life is many days. This ends."

--The Fruit of Exile #Quote by Joe Churchwell
Fruit quotes by Nancy Gibbs
#15. Time dissolves in summer anyway: days are long, weekends longer. Hours get all thin and watery when you are lost in the book you'd never otherwise have time to read. Senses are sharper - something about the moist air and bright light and fruit in season - and so memories stir and startle. #Quote by Nancy Gibbs
Fruit quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#16. Tears came to my eyes. I forgot that he was a poor Cabuli fruit-seller, while I was - . But no, what was I more than he? He also was a father. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Fruit quotes by Gene Wolfe
#17. A dark flask dangled from the bedpost like a ripe fruit. Someone he could not see was seated beside his bed. He turned his head and craned his neck to no avail. At last he extended a hand toward the visitor; and the visitor took it between his own, which were large and hard and warm. As soon as their hands touched, he knew. You said you weren't going to help, he told the visitor. You said I wasn't to expect help from you, yet here you are. The visitor did not reply, but his hands were clean and gentle and full of healing. #Quote by Gene Wolfe
Fruit quotes by Erich Fromm
#18. Love, experienced thus, is a constant challenge; it is not a resting place, but moving, growing, working together; even when there is harmony or conflict, joy or sadness, is secondary to the fundamental fact that two people experience themselves, rather than by fleeing from themselves. There is only one proof for the presence of love: the depth of the relationship, and the aliveness and strength in each person concerned; this is the fruit by which love is recognized. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Fruit quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#19. When a student matures he bares fruit. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Fruit quotes by Kabir
#20. The apple blossom exists to create fruit; when that
comes, the petal falls. #Quote by Kabir
Fruit quotes by J.I. Packer
#21. To summarize, then, it appears that Christian holiness is a number of things together. It has both outward and inward aspects. Holiness is a matter of both action and motivation, conduct and character, divine grace and human effort, obedience and creativity, submission and initiative, consecration to God and commitment to people, self-discipline and self-giving, righteousness and love. It is a matter of Spirit-led law-keeping, a walk, or course of life, in the Spirit that displays the fruit of the Spirit (Christlikeness of attitude and disposition). It is a matter of seeking to imitate Jesus' way of behaving, through depending on Jesus for deliverance from carnal self-absorption and for discernment of spiritual needs and possibilities. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Fruit quotes by Douglas Wilson
#22. How is it possible to live like a machine and bear fruit like a tree? #Quote by Douglas Wilson
Fruit quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#23. The fruit of too much liberty is slavery. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Fruit quotes by Bokar Rinpoche
#24. The fruit of meditation is not the absence of thoughts, but the fact that thoughts cease to harm us. Once enemies, they become friends. #Quote by Bokar Rinpoche
Fruit quotes by Elinor Wylie
#25. Wild Peaches"

When the world turns completely upside down
You say we'll emigrate to the Eastern Shore
Aboard a river-boat from Baltimore;
We'll live among wild peach trees, miles from town,
You'll wear a coonskin cap, and I a gown
Homespun, dyed butternut's dark gold color.
Lost, like your lotus-eating ancestor,
We'll swim in milk and honey till we drown.

The winter will be short, the summer long,
The autumn amber-hued, sunny and hot,
Tasting of cider and of scuppernong;
All seasons sweet, but autumn best of all.
The squirrels in their silver fur will fall
Like falling leaves, like fruit, before your shot.


2

The autumn frosts will lie upon the grass
Like bloom on grapes of purple-brown and gold.
The misted early mornings will be cold;
The little puddles will be roofed with glass.
The sun, which burns from copper into brass,
Melts these at noon, and makes the boys unfold
Their knitted mufflers; full as they can hold
Fat pockets dribble chestnuts as they pass.

Peaches grow wild, and pigs can live in clover;
A barrel of salted herrings lasts a year;
The spring begins before the winter's over.
By February you may find the skins
Of garter snakes and water moccasins
Dwindled and harsh, dead-white and cloudy-clear.

When April pours the colors of a shell
Upon the hill #Quote by Elinor Wylie
Fruit quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#26. Ten apples doth not make an orchard. #Quote by Anthony T. Hincks
Fruit quotes by Mark Twain
#27. For we were little Christian children and early learned the value of forbidden fruit. #Quote by Mark Twain
Fruit quotes by Alice Smith
#28. Our powerlessness is largely a result of our prayerlessness. We are eating the bitter fruit of our failure to pray. Our children, government, churches and society are reaping the result of dry eyes in the pews and crusty hearts in the pulpits. Ed Silvoso says it well in his book That None Should Perish: When Christians begin to pray for the felt needs of the lost, God surprises them with almost immediate answers to prayer. In fact, prayer for the needs of that one-hundredth sheep is the spiritual equivalent of dialing 911.3 #Quote by Alice Smith
Fruit quotes by Anonymous
#29. The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; #Quote by Anonymous
Fruit quotes by Ottessa Moshfegh
#30. But these painters of fruit thought only of their own mortality, as though the beauty of their work would somehow soothe their fear of death. There they all were, hanging feckless and candid and meaningless, paintings of things, objects, the paintings themselves just things, objects, withering toward their own inevitable demise. #Quote by Ottessa Moshfegh
Fruit quotes by Tabitha Suzuma
#31. Did you think I – I would be able to carry on, without you?" I sob, my voice muffled against his shoulder. "Did you think I'd manage to get through this thing called life without you by my side?"

"I thought you'd be better off without me – I didn't think, I couldn't think…" We are both sobbing now.

"Who else would run out on their own birthday party, force me barefoot down the fire escape, bring me fruit salad in bed, complain that I'm humming a pop song in the wrong key?" I am laughing and crying at once. "Who else would force me to dance in front of a complete stranger, learn to play the guitar overnight and accompany me when I sing?" I sniff hard and punch him on the shoulder. "How could I possibly live without you, you stupid, stupid idiot? #Quote by Tabitha Suzuma
Fruit quotes by Lucia Berlin
#32. What if our bodies were transparent, like a washing machine window? How wondrous to watch ourselves. Joggers would job even harder, blood pumping away. Lovers would love more. God damn! Look at that old semen go! Diets would improve-- kiwi fruit and strawberries, borscht with sour cream. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Fruit quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#33. Property is the fruit of labor; property is desirable; it is a positive good. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Fruit quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#34. Be pleased, gentlemen, to dispose of what belongs to yourselves as you think proper, but leave us the disposal of the fruit of our own toil, to use it or exchange it as we see best. Declaim on self-sacrifice as much as you choose, it is all very fine and very beautiful, but be at least consistent. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Fruit quotes by N. R. Narayana Murthy
#35. In the fullness of time, when it is our turn to give, we must in turn plant gardens that we may never eat the fruit of, which will benefit the generations to come. #Quote by N. R. Narayana Murthy
Fruit quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#36. Winning control of the Senate would allow Republicans to pass a whole range of measures now being held up by Reid, often at the behest of the White House. Make it a major reform agenda. The centerpiece might be tax reform, both corporate and individual. It is needed, popular and doable. Then go for the low-hanging fruit enjoying wide bipartisan support, such as the Keystone XL pipeline and natural gas exports, most especially to Eastern Europe. One could then add border security, energy deregulation and health-care reform that repeals the more onerous Obamacare mandates. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Fruit quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#37. Industriousness and conscientiousness are often at odds, because industriousness wants to pick the still sour fruit from the tree,while conscientiousness lets it hang there too long, until it falls and bruises. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Fruit quotes by C.S. Lewis
#38. And just as the Witch Jadis had looked different when you saw her in our world instead of in her own, so the fruit of that mountain garden looked different too. There were of course all sorts of colored things in the bedroom; the colored counterpane on the bed, the wallpaper, the sunlight from the window, and Mother's pretty, pale blue dressing jacket. But the moment Digory took the Apple out of his pocket, all those things seemed to have scarcely any color at all. Everyone of them, even the sunlight, looked faded and dingy. The brightness of the Apple threw strange lights on the ceiling. Nothing else was worth looking at: you couldn't look at anything else. And the smell of the Apple of Youth was as if there was a window in the room that opened on Heaven. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Fruit quotes by Ned Vizzini
#39. I used to like the foods that come in abstract shapes: chicken nuggets, Fruit Roll-Ups, hot dogs. #Quote by Ned Vizzini
Fruit quotes by Buddhadasa
#40. Do work of all kinds with a mind that is void and to the voidness surrender all of the fruits. #Quote by Buddhadasa
Fruit quotes by Kate Douglas Wiggin
#41. The world is always a new plaything to children, while to the old it seems falling to pieces from sheer dryness. Everything loses its value with time, but it is not the fault of the fruit, but of the mouth and the tongue. #Quote by Kate Douglas Wiggin
Fruit quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#42. A human being is like a seed. Either you can keep it as it is, or you can make it grow into a wonderful tree with flowers and fruits. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Fruit quotes by George Foster
#43. Like other spiritual fruit, joy must be cultivated. #Quote by George Foster
Fruit quotes by Rajiv Joseph
#44. At first it's pretty cool: the limitless fruit of knowledge hanging low in your path. Then you realize it's the only thing to eat around here. #Quote by Rajiv Joseph
Fruit quotes by Gregory Palamas
#45. Let none of you have a soul which is barren and without fruit. Let nobody be unloving or unreceptive to the spiritual seed. May each of you eagerly accept the celestial seed, the word of salvation (cf. Lk. 8:11), and by your own efforts bring it to perfection as a heavenly work and fruit pleasing to God. Let no one make a beginning of a good work which brings no fruit to perfection (cf. Lk. 8:14), nor declare his faith in Christ only with His tongue. #Quote by Gregory Palamas
Fruit quotes by Charles Olson
#46. The flowers are ravined
by bees, the fruit blossoms

are thrown to the ground, the wind
the rain forces everything. #Quote by Charles Olson
Fruit quotes by Don DeLillo
#47. A police car went by with its siren going, a rotary slurping noise, it sounded like the blender in their kitchen - she made fruit shakes compulsively that they felt morally bound to drink. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Fruit quotes by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
#48. If we want to cook food we need to leave the stove on continuously and not keep turning it on and off. If the heat is continuous, no matter whether it is high or low our food will eventually be cooked. Similarly, if we continuously apply effort, even if it is only a small effort, it is certain that we shall eventually experience the fruits of our practice. #Quote by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Fruit quotes by Rachel Gilson
#49. The first blessing of sexuality is the way it shows us the priority God gives to diversity, which is both highlighted in and sustained by sex difference. The second blessing of sexuality is the gift of children, a fruit of both sex difference and sexual union. And the third blessing of sexuality is that it creates the possibility of marriage as a picture of God's relationship with his people - and that picture specifically requires sex difference. #Quote by Rachel Gilson
Fruit quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#50. Dreams are like seeds, which won't become actual fruit-bearing trees until someone stands up to sow those seeds with care. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Fruit quotes by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
#51. About humility we speak with an analogy: When the branches are full of fruit, they just bow down. #Quote by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Fruit quotes by John Ruskin
#52. Kind hearts are the garden, kind thoughts are the roots, kind words are the blossoms, kind deeds are the fruit. #Quote by John Ruskin
Fruit quotes by Richard Wagner
#53. From its first faint glimmerings, History shews Man's constant progress as a beast of prey. As such he conquers every land, subdues the fruit-fed races, founds mighty realms by subjugating other subjugators, forms states and sets up civilisations, to enjoy his prey at rest. #Quote by Richard Wagner
Fruit quotes by D.L. Moody
#54. I never saw a fruit-bearing Christian who was not a student of the Bible. #Quote by D.L. Moody
Fruit quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#55. The sacred fruit grows on the tree of life in the garden of God. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Fruit quotes by Douglas Adams
#56. The life cycle of ratchet screwdriver fruit is quite interesting. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Fruit quotes by Robert Graves
#57. Dust in a cloud, blinding weather,
Drums that rattle and roar!
A mother and daughter stood together
Beside their cottage door.

'Mother, the heavens are bright like brass,
The dust is shaken high,
With labouring breath the soldiers pass,
Their lips are cracked and dry.'

'Mother, I'll throw them apples down,
I'll bring them pails of water.'
The mother turned with an angry frown
Holding back her daughter.

'But mother, see, they faint with thirst,
They march away to die,'
'Ah, sweet, had I but known at first
Their throats are always dry.'

'There is no water can supply them
In western streams that flow,
There is no fruit can satisfy them
On orchard trees that grow.'

'Once in my youth I gave, poor fool,
A soldier apples and water,
So may I die before you cool
Your father's drouth, my daughter. #Quote by Robert Graves
Fruit quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#58. What a contrast between the stern and desolate poetry of Ossian, and that of Chaucer, and even of Shakespeare and Milton, much more of Dryden, and Pope, and Gray! Our summer of English poetry, like the Greek and Latin before it, seems well advanced towards its fall, and laden with the fruit and foliage of the season, with bright autumnal tints, but soon the winter will scatter its myriad clustering and shading leaves, and leave only a few desolate and fibrous boughs to sustain the snow and rime, and creak in the blasts of age. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fruit quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#59. Every wild apple shrub excites our expectation thus, somewhat as every wild child. It is, perhaps, a prince in disguise. What a lesson to man! So are human beings, referred to the highest standard, the celestial fruit which they suggest and aspire to bear, browsed on by fate; and only the most persistent and strongest genius defends itself and prevails, sends a tender scion upward at last, and drops its perfect fruit on the ungrateful earth. Poets and philosophers and statesmen thus spring up in the country pastures, and outlast the hosts of unoriginal men. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fruit quotes by Katherine Webb
#60. I just try to stick to clean foods, anything grilled like salmon, chicken, fish, brown rice, and veggies. I do have a really big sweet tooth, so I try to curb my cravings with fruit instead. #Quote by Katherine Webb
Fruit quotes by George Eliot
#61. Ingenious philosophers tell you, perhaps, that the great work of the steam-engine is to create leisure for mankind. Do not believe them: it only creates a vacuum for eager thought to rush in. Even idleness is eager now - eager for amusement; prone to excursion-trains, art museums, periodical literature, and exciting novels; prone even to scientific theorizing and cursory peeps through microscopes. Old Leisure was quite a different personage. He only read one newspaper, innocent of leaders, and was free from that periodicity of sensations which we call post-time. He was a contemplative, rather stout gentleman, of excellent digestion; of quiet perceptions, undiseased by hypothesis; happy in his inability to know the causes of things, preferring the things themselves. He lived chiefly in the country, among pleasant seats and homesteads, and was fond of sauntering by the fruit-tree wall and scenting the apricots when they were warmed by the morning sunshine, or of sheltering himself under the orchard boughs at noon, when the summer pears were falling. He knew nothing of weekday services, and thought none the worse of the Sunday sermon if it allowed him to sleep from the text to the blessing; liking the afternoon service best, because the prayers were the shortest, and not ashamed to say so; for he had an easy, jolly conscience, broad-backed like himself, and able to carry a great deal of beer or port-wine, not being made squeamish by doubts and qualms and lofty aspirations. #Quote by George Eliot
Fruit quotes by Anna Porter
#62. Unlike exotic fruit or fancy cars, democracy is best if it is grown locally. It may take root in the common desire of the people who choose to adopt it, but it cannot be imposed from the outside. #Quote by Anna Porter
Fruit quotes by Hudson Taylor
#63. Fruit-bearing involves cross-bearing. There are not two Christs
an easygoing one for easygoing Christians, and a suffering, toiling one for exceptional believers. There is only one Christ. Are you willing to abide in Him, and thus to bear much fruit? #Quote by Hudson Taylor
Fruit quotes by Susan Scott
#64. Forbidden fruit makes a wonderful wine." Vazco gave him a leading look. "But leaves a hell of a headache. #Quote by Susan Scott
Fruit quotes by Meg Wolitzer
#65. Irony was new to her and tasted oddly good, like a previously unavailable summer fruit. #Quote by Meg Wolitzer
Fruit quotes by Louise Westerhout
#66. are important sources of emotional, creative and spiritual nourishment for me. It seems there is never enough space at our kitchen table; the children need a surface to draw on, between the flowers and fruit bowls, and sometimes it feels like a game of musical chairs to seat everyone #Quote by Louise Westerhout
Fruit quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#67. As life has proved, it is true that a woman's body is more important than her mind. She alone can create new human creatures. Were it not for her, the race of man would cease to exist. Into her body, as into a chalice, Heaven has put this gift. Her body therefore is inexpressibly precious to man. He is not fulfilled if she does not create. His is the seed, but she alone can bring it to flower and fruit in another being like himself. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Fruit quotes by J.M. Darhower
#68. Ah, sin," Lucifer said. "Like the serpent that tricked Eve into eating the forbidden fruit. She devoured it, knowing she shouldn't."
"And she was punished for it."
"She was," Lucifer agreed. "But if you think for a moment she truly regretted it, you're wrong. That fruit was the most glorious thing she ever tasted - the sweetest, the ripest - and once you experience something so breathtaking, you never forget it. You never regret it. #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Fruit quotes by Mango Wodzak
#69. I'm not one of those fruitarians who advise people to make fruit an arbitrary percentage of their diet and then the rest, greens, nuts and seeds. Nor am I one of those fruitarians obsessed with calorie counting, and analysing the handful of separately classified scientific elements purportedly microscopically available within each fruit. #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Fruit quotes by Isabella Bird
#70. The breadfruit is a superb tree, about 60 feet high, with deep green, shining leaves, a foot broad, sharply and symmetrically cut, worthy, from their exceeding beauty of form, to take the place of the acanthus in architectural ornament, and throwing their pale green fruit into delicate contrast. #Quote by Isabella Bird
Fruit quotes by Paul Reiser
#71. Sometimes it works out well, and certain household responsibilities fall naturally to those who like doing them.
For example, my wife likes to pack suitcases, I like to unpack them.
My wife likes to buy groceries, I like to put them away. I do. I like the handling and discovering, and the location assignments.
Cans - over there. Fruit - over there. Bananas - not so fast. You go over here. When you learn not to go bad so quickly, then you can stay with the rest of your friends. #Quote by Paul Reiser
Fruit quotes by John Calvin
#72. Faith and patience are exceptional virtues in those that suffer. Patience is the fruit and evidence of faith. #Quote by John Calvin
Fruit quotes by Jose Rizal
#73. No good water comes from a muddy spring. No sweet fruit comes from a bitter seed. #Quote by Jose Rizal
Fruit quotes by Rick Riordan
#74. The last thing I wanted was my embarrassing death by fruit bats posted on YouTube. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Fruit quotes by Ariana Grande
#75. I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-around happier person. It is tricky dining out, but I just stick to what I know - veggies, fruit and salad - then when I get home I'll have something else. #Quote by Ariana Grande
Fruit quotes by Hippolyte Taine
#76. Not only does the State do the work badly on a domain not its own, bunglingly, at greater cost, and with less fruit than spontaneous organizations, but, again, through the legal monopoly which it deems its prerogative, or through the overwhelming competition which it exercises, it kills or paralyzes these natural organizations or prevents their birth; and hence so many precious organs, which, absorbed, atropic or abortive, are lost to the great social body. #Quote by Hippolyte Taine
Fruit quotes by Matthew Arnold
#77. Thou waitest for the spark from heaven! and we, Light half-believers in our casual deeds ... Who hesitate and falter life away, And lose tomorrow the ground won today- Ah, do not we, Wanderer, await it too? #Quote by Matthew Arnold
Fruit quotes by Joseph F. Smith
#78. Of what use is it that we know the truth, if we lack its spirit? Our knowledge, in this event, becomes a condemnation to us, failing to bear fruit. It is not sufficient that we know the truth, but we must be humble with this knowledge possess the spirit to actuate us to good deeds. Baptism, as well as all other outward ordinances, without the spirit accompanying, is useless. We remain but baptized sinners. #Quote by Joseph F. Smith
Fruit quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#79. It hasn't been easy to find American citizens who are willing to pick fruit in 110 degree weather. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Fruit quotes by Robertson Davies
#80. Of course, fairies are all imported in North America. We have no native fairies. The Little People do not long survive importation unless they go to California and grow large and beautiful, but haven't much flavour, like the fruit and the film stars. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Fruit quotes by Virginia Morell
#81. (Although Darwin did not have genetics at hand to prove his case, we now know that humans and chimpanzees share 98 percent of their genes; humans and fruit flies share 44 percent of their genes.) #Quote by Virginia Morell
Fruit quotes by J.D. Greear
#82. Abiding in Jesus means understanding that His acceptance of us is the same regardless of the amount of spiritual fruit we have produced. #Quote by J.D. Greear
Fruit quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#83. The greatest service which can be rendered any country is to add a useful plant to its culture.
The Fruit Hunters #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Fruit quotes by Kristin Kimball
#84. Everything ends. The natural order of things is immutable. Seed, flower, fruit, decline, death, decay. Seed. Each stage has its own drama and its own particular beauty. If you can see it, you can accept it. The parts are graceful, and so is the whole. #Quote by Kristin Kimball
Fruit quotes by Marjorie Hudson
#85. The farmhouse sat on a rise at the end of a long dirt road, in a clearing surrounded by fruit trees and ninety acres of pines. It was painted white, and peeling, and some former hippie tenant had painted a mandala on the wall just inside the door with fine-point Magic Marker. I painted over it, but it bled through, again and again. I finally left it there, a pale and pastel version of itself, hanging ghostlike in the hall. #Quote by Marjorie Hudson
Fruit quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#86. The earth is not a mere fragment of dead history, stratum upon stratum like the leaves of a book, to be studied by geologists and antiquaries chiefly, but living poetry like the leaves of a tree, which precede flowers and fruit
not a fossil earth, but a living earth; compared with whose great central life all animal and vegetable life is merely parasitic. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fruit quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#87. He's alive," she said in a voice that sounded so bored Holly might've been imagining the thread of relief running through it. "That's the best I can do for him. His evil sorcerer buds can heal him or take him to the hospital and bring him an evil magic fruit basket for all I care. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Fruit quotes by George Eliot
#88. It is, I fear, but a vain show of fulfilling the heathen precept, 'Know thyself,' and too often leads to a self- estimate which will subsist in the absence of that fruit by which alone the quality of the tree is made evident. #Quote by George Eliot
Fruit quotes by Ray Romano
#89. Whenever I get down about life going by too quickly, what helps me is a little mantra that I repeat to myself: at least I'm not a fruit fly. #Quote by Ray Romano
Fruit quotes by Jandy Nelson
#90. I watch him hypnotize the girls as he does the fruit in the trees, the clouds in the sky, as he did me. #Quote by Jandy Nelson
Fruit quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#91. Taste of forbidden fruit, made all the more exciting #Quote by Andrzej Sapkowski
Fruit quotes by John Lindberg
#92. When the population is filled with peace and harmony it ripens like fruit that turns to rot in a jiff if not preserved by change. #Quote by John Lindberg
Fruit quotes by Rick Riordan
#93. Glancing back I got my first clear look at the monster. He was seven feet tall, easy, his arms and legs like something from the cover of Muscle Man magazine-bulging biceps and triceps and a bunch of other 'ceps, all stuffed like baseballs under vein-webbed skin. He wore no clothes except underwear-I mean, bright white fruit of the Looms. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Fruit quotes by Philip Pullman
#94. And Will knew what it was to see his daemon. As she flew down to the sand, he felt his heart tighten and release in a way he never forgot. Sixty years and more would go by, and as an old man he would still feel some sensations as bright and fresh as ever: Lyra's fingers putting the fruit between his lips under the gold-and-silver trees; her warm mouth pressing against his; his daemon being torn from his unsuspecting breast as they entered the world of the dead; and the sweet rightfulness of her coming back to him at the edge of the moonlight dunes. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Fruit quotes by L.A. Casey
#95. Kane reassuringly patted his eldest brother on the shoulder and trained his eyes on his forbidden fruit. "Don't you associate yourself with whatever those three have planned, Aideen."

"I wouldn't dream of it, Germinator."

Ha!

Kane snapped his fingers at Aideen. "My bullshit meter is off the charts, Collins."

Aideen didn't reply and Kane looked lost at her lack of retaliation.

"Why aren't you cussing at me or telling me off?" he asked warily.

Aideen yawned. "Because I'm puttin' me energy into helpin' Keela win this bet. I can argue with you later."

"Is that a promise?" Kane asked, grinning.

Aideen smirked. "We'll see."

The sudden sexual tension in the room could be cut with an erect penis.

I shivered. "Stop flirtin'. I feel dirty just standin' between you both!"

Alec snapped his teeth at me. "I'll clean you up real nice, Kitten."

I pumped my eyebrows. "Or make me dirtier. #Quote by L.A. Casey

Fruit quotes by Comte De Lautreamont
#97. It is not right that everyone should read the pages which follow; only a few will be able to savour this bitter fruit with impunity. Consequently, shrinking soul, turn on your heels and go back before penetrating further into such uncharted, perilous wastelands. Listen well to what I say: turn on your heels and go back, not forward,[ ... ] #Quote by Comte De Lautreamont
Fruit quotes by Jenny Han
#98. Stormy lived more life in one night than most people do their whole lives. She was a force of nature. She taught me that love--" My eyes well up and I start over. "Stormy taught me that love is about making brave choices every day. That's what Stormy did. She always picked love; she always picked adventure. To her they were one and the same. And now she's off on a new adventure, and we wish her well."
From his seat on the couch, John wipes his eyes with his sleeve.
I give Janette a nod, and she gets up and presses play on the stereo, and "Stormy Weather" fills the room. "Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky…"
After, John shoulders his way over to me, holding two plastic cups of fruit punch. Ruefully he says, "I'm sure she'd tell us to spike it, but…" He hands me a cup, and we clink. "To Edith Sinclair McClaren Sheehan, better known as Stormy."
"Stormy's real name was Edith? It's so serious. It sounds like someone who wears wool skirts and heavy stockings, and drinks chamomile tea at night. Stormy drank cocktails!"
John laughs. "I know, right?"
"So then where did the name Stormy come from? Why not Edie?"
"Who knows?" John says, a wry smile on his lips. "She'd have loved your speech." He gives me a warm, appreciative sort of look. "You're such a nice girl, Lara Jean. #Quote by Jenny Han
Fruit quotes by Voltaire
#99. The right of commanding is no longer an advantage transmitted by nature; like an inheritance, it is the fruit of labors, the price of courage. #Quote by Voltaire
Fruit quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#100. All things in the natural world symboliZe God, yet none of them speak of him but in broken and imperfect words. High above all he sits, sublimer than mountains, grander than storms, sweeter than blossoms and tender fruits, nobler than lords, truer than parents, more loving than lovers. His feet tread the lowest places of the earth; but his head is above all glory, and everywhere he is supreme. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Fruit quotes by John Piper
#101. The rich fruit of spontaneity grows in the garden that is well tended by the discipline of schedule. #Quote by John Piper
Fruit quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#102. Is not disease the rule of existence? There is not a lily pad floating on the river but has been riddled by insects. Almost every shrub and tree has its gall, oftentimes esteemed its chief ornament and hardly to be distinguished from the fruit. If misery loves company, misery has company enough. Now, at midsummer, find me a perfect leaf or fruit. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fruit quotes by Charles Dickens
#103. Therefore, he sat before his dying fire, sorrowful to think upon
the way by which he had come to that night, yet not strewing poison
on the way by which other men had come to it. That he should have
missed so much, and at his time of life should look so far about
him for any staff to bear him company upon his downward journey and
cheer it, was a just regret. He looked at the fire from which the
blaze departed, from which the afterglow subsided, in which the
ashes turned grey, from which they dropped to dust, and thought,
'How soon I too shall pass through such changes, and be gone!'

To review his life was like descending a green tree in fruit and
flower, and seeing all the branches wither and drop off, one by
one, as he came down towards them.

'From the unhappy suppression of my youngest days, through the
rigid and unloving home that followed them, through my departure,
my long exile, my return, my mother's welcome, my intercourse with
her since, down to the afternoon of this day with poor Flora,' said
Arthur Clennam, 'what have I found!'

His door was softly opened, and these spoken words startled him,
and came as if they were an answer:

'Little Dorrit. #Quote by Charles Dickens

Fruit quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#105. You're getting better, my lady."
"Don't patronize me."
"No, really, Your Highness. When you started painting five years ago, I could never tell what it was you were trying to depict."
"And this is a painting of ."
Ashe paused. "A bowl of fruit?" he asked hopefully.
Sarene sighed in frustration.
_______________________________
"Beautifully - which is more than I can say for the painting." He paused for a
moment. "It's a horse, right?"
Sarene scowled.
"A house?" he asked.
"It is not a bowl of fruit either, my lord," Ashe said. "I already tried that."
"Well, she said it was one of the paintings in this room," Lukel said. "All we
have to do is keep guessing until we find the right one."
"Brilliant deduction, Master Lukel." Ashe said. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Fruit quotes by L. J. Boulding
#106. In the book of James the first chapter and the fourth verse it talks about letting patience have her perfect work in us. God knows how to make us wait to develop patience in us. Sometimes, the wait can seem unbearable. But it is in this place that He is maturing this fruit of the Spirit. #Quote by L. J. Boulding
Fruit quotes by Annie Besant
#107. The highest Hindu intellectual training was based on the practice of yoga, and produced, as its fruit, those marvellous philosophical systems, the six Darshanas and the Brahma Sutras, which are still the delight of scholars and the inspiration of occultists and mystics. #Quote by Annie Besant
Fruit quotes by Neil Armstrong
#108. Perhaps it won't matter, in the end, which country is the sower of the seed of exploration. The importance will be in the growth of the new plant of progress and in the fruits it will bear. These fruits will be a new breed of the human species, a human with new views, new vigor, new resiliency, and a new view of the human purpose. The plant: the tree of human destiny. #Quote by Neil Armstrong
Fruit quotes by Eugene Jarecki
#109. I mean, like a lot of kids growing up in the early seventies, I was fed Dr. Kissinger with my Fruit Loops. He was the Dr. Ruth of American foreign policy, and the model statesman. #Quote by Eugene Jarecki
Fruit quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#110. If saving faith is present, it can't help but produce fruit. Good works don't save a person, but they do show that his or her faith is genuine. #Quote by John F. MacArthur Jr.
Fruit quotes by Joyce Meyer
#111. Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. Hebrews 13:15 #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Fruit quotes by J. Edward Vance
#112. What is the meaning of life?" asked man.
"Seek and ye shall find," said God. "That was my method."
The man replied, "How might I do that?"
"Take a setting," instructed God. "Add some dirt and water, mold it into something likeable. Let there be light to break up the darkness. Plant some trees and fruit. Don't forget to put in a few animals. Then create a few wild things that are as curious in thought as you, and let them figure the damned thing out. #Quote by J. Edward Vance
Fruit quotes by Sadhguru
#113. The day the system says "no food" is a cleanup day. Since most people are not aware of which day their body should go without food, the day of Ekadashi was fixed in the Indian calendar. Ekadashi is the eleventh day of the lunar segment and recurs every fourteen days. It is traditionally regarded as the day to fast. If some people are unable to go without food because their activity levels demand it, or if they do not have the appropriate spiritual practice to support it, they can opt to go on a fruit diet.

Fruit quotes by Charlie Peacock
#114. True artists pursue greatness in craft in order to give the Lord the best fruit of the talent He has given them, not to build themselves up. They understand that true greatness is found in the heart of the servant. #Quote by Charlie Peacock
Fruit quotes by Isaac Barrow
#115. There do remain dispersed in the soil of human nature divers seeds of goodness, of benignity, of ingenuity, which, being cherished, excited, and quickened by good culture, do, by common experience, thrust out flowers very lovely, and yield fruits very pleasant of virtue and goodness. #Quote by Isaac Barrow
Fruit quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#116. Watch carefully. In forty formidable bosoms we are about to create a climacteric of emotion. In one short speech - or maybe two - I propose to steer your women through excitement, superiority, contempt and anger: we shall have a little drama; just, awful and poetic, spread with uncials and full, as the poet said, of fruit and seriosity. Will they thank me, I wonder? #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Fruit quotes by Sirshree
#117. KARMA
We do not receive the fruit of our actions. We receive the fruits of the feelings behind our actions. #Quote by Sirshree
Fruit quotes by Liane Moriarty
#118. She reminds herself that everyone has thoughts they wouldn't care to share with the world. Many people have quite perverse thoughts about doing things with animals or fruit, or being spanked by nurses. The difference, of course, is that their thoughts are securely locked away behind bland faces, whereas Sophie's are always in danger of being revealed to all in a sudden flood of colour. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Fruit quotes by Hermann Hesse
#119. I have become distrustful of teachings and learning, and I have little faith in words that come to us from teachers. But, very well, my friend - I am ready to hear this new teaching, although I believe in my heart that I have already tasted the best fruit of it. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Fruit quotes by Jonathan Weiner
#120. The first man and woman knew it all; they had "pure and uncorrupted natural knowledge," before they tasted the forbidden fruit and were thrown out of Paradise. Adam and Eve enjoyed not only perfect knowledge but perfect power; and there was no death in the world. Once we recover what our First Parents knew, we will conquer death again. #Quote by Jonathan Weiner
Fruit quotes by Alexander Dumas
#121. Every man has a devouring passion in his heart, as every fruit has its worm. #Quote by Alexander Dumas
Fruit quotes by Haile Selassie
#122. The fruits of one's sweat and mental labour are always rewarding #Quote by Haile Selassie
Fruit quotes by James C. Dobson
#123. Beautiful, enticing, forbidden fruit will be offered to you when your "hunger" is greatest. If you are foolish enough to reach for it, your fingers will sink into the rotten mush on the back side. That's the way sin operates in our lives. It promises everything. It delivers nothing but disgust and heartache. #Quote by James C. Dobson
Fruit quotes by Virginia Woolf
#124. The light touched something green in the window corner and made it a lump of emerald, a cave of pure green like stoneless fruit. It sharpened the edges of chairs and tables and stitched white table-cloths with fine gold wires. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Fruit quotes by Adam Weishaupt
#125. Morality will perform all this; and Morality is the fruit of Illumination. #Quote by Adam Weishaupt
Fruit quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#126. Here is a hero who did nothing but shake the tree as soon as the fruit was ripe. Does this seem to be too small a thing to you? Then take a good look at the tree he shook. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Fruit quotes by Laurens Van Der Post
#127. It's the not-yet in the now, the taste of the fruit that does not-yet exist, hanging the blossom on the bough. #Quote by Laurens Van Der Post
Fruit quotes by Elle Newmark
#128. I remember that pomegranate well- the leathery red skin, the fleshy weight of it in my hand promising wine-sweet clusters of ruby fruit. As I lifted it off the pile, I imagined the satisfying crunch, the release of tangy perfume, the juices glazing my lips and running down my chin. Ah, that biblical fruit with its poignant umbilical tip, choice of the gods and food of the dead. #Quote by Elle Newmark
Fruit quotes by Alain De Botton
#129. Blind impatience is equally evident in the fruit section. Our ancestors might have delighted in the occasional handful of berries found on the underside of a bush in late summer, viewing it as a sign of the unexpected munificence of a divine creator, but we became modern when we gave up on awaiting sporadic gifts from above and sought to render any pleasing sensation immediately and repeatedly available. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Fruit quotes by Lynetta Halat
#130. I know I'm not supposed to want him. He's my own slice of forbidden fruit – my deceased husband's outcast cousin. #Quote by Lynetta Halat
Fruit quotes by Clive Barker
#131. Sung to the tune of O Christmas Tree
O woe is me,
O woe is me,
I used to have a hamster tree,
But it was eaten by a newt,
And now I have no cuddly fruit,
O woe is me,
O woe is me,
I used to have a hamster tree! #Quote by Clive Barker
Fruit quotes by Susan L. Taylor
#132. We mustn't reserve communing with God just for morning and evening prayers, or for weekly worship service, or for when we feel burdened. The goal is to realize that every moment of our lives is a meditation. Allow yourself to marvel at the wonder of God's work all around us. Throughout your day, let the sun, a tree, a piece of fruit remind you that everything you could ever want has been provided and can be found right here on earth. #Quote by Susan L. Taylor
Fruit quotes by Tertullian

Fruit quotes by Felix Adler

Fruit quotes by Louise Walters
#135. I find things hidden in books: dried flowers, locks of hair, tickets, labels, receipt, invoices, photographs, postcards, all manner of cards. I find letters, unpublished works by the ordinary, the anguished, the illiterate. Clumsily written or eloquent, they are love letters, everyday letters, secret letters and mundane letters talking about fruit and babies and tennis matches, from people signing themselves as Majorie or Jean....I can't bring myself to dispose of these snippets and snapshots of lives that once meant (or still do mean) so much. #Quote by Louise Walters
Fruit quotes by Anthony Marais
#136. When a scientist splits an atom, the event is locked away like a jewel in a castle, funneling down to the public through a myriad of institutions. But when an artist stumbles upon the key to unleashing universal evil, the forbidden fruit of his painstaking labor is packaged and sold at every corner store from Bangor to Bangkok. I'm still unsure whether this is the result of a lack of respect for artists (compared to scientists) or the moral corruption of artists (compared to scientists). #Quote by Anthony Marais
Fruit quotes by Saeb Erekat
#137. Look, I am a Palestinian elected representative from Jericho. If a Palestinian wants to sell his fruit anywhere in the West Bank, he goes to the Israeli civil administration. If a Palestinian sick person wants to leave a hospital, he goes through the Israeli civil administration. Nobody can leave or enter my constituency without Israeli permission. Israel is, in effect, resuming the occupation. #Quote by Saeb Erekat
Fruit quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#138. But yet it is evident that religion consists so much in affection, as that without holy affection there is no true religion; and no light in the understanding is good which does not produce holy affection in the heart: no habit or principle in the heart is good which has no such exercise; and no external fruit is good which does not proceed from such exercises. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Fruit quotes by Jonathan Corcoran
#139. She walked down the lawn and surveyed the world as they'd both seen it--the wild limbs of the leaning apple tree, the golden-brown evening sky, the black silhouettes of the mountains. The trunk and the branches of the tree had bent over the years, under the weight of the heavy fruit. One of the biggest branches had grown down from the canopy of the leaves, all the way to the ground and straight along the grass...the end of that same branch had begun growing up again, at a right angle, the wood bending toward the sky. #Quote by Jonathan Corcoran
Fruit quotes by Sabaa Tahir
#140. She has no idea how pretty she is - or what kind of problems her beauty will cause for her at a place like Blackcliff. The wind pulls at her hair again, and I catch her scent - like fruit and sugar. #Quote by Sabaa Tahir
Fruit quotes by Lionel Suggs
#141. At the fruit of existence, there is a single concept of anonymity. This unknown concept is well known however. All one has to do is simply look behind the mirror for the answer. Yet, the answer won't come until the right question is asked. Because the illusions of reality are dressed in endless reflections, the blind will continue to be guided by the blind. The unknown concept is recognized to those who have tasted the fruit of existence, and as distant as the woman trying to grab Heaven from the reflection of an empty pond. #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Fruit quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#142. Stressing the necessity of personal holiness should not undermine in any way our confidence in justification by faith alone. The best theologians and the best theological statements have always emphasized the scandalous nature of gospel grace and the indispensable need for personal holiness. Faith and good works are both necessary. But one is the root and the other the fruit. God declares us just solely on account of the righteousness of Christ credited (imputed) to us (2 Cor. 5:21). Our innocence in God's sight is in no way grounded in works of love or acts of charity. Whereas a Catholic might answer the question "What must I do to be saved?" by saying, "Repent, believe, and live in charity,"7 the apostle Paul answers the same exact question with, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household" (Acts 16:31). Getting right with God is entirely and only dependent upon faith.8 #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Fruit quotes by Christine Caine
#143. I also came to understand that our authenticity (or lack thereof) is made evident by the fruit that our life is bearing. #Quote by Christine Caine
Fruit quotes by Joel Fuhrman

Fruit quotes by George Berkeley
#145. In vain do we extend our view into the heavens, and pry into the entrails of the earth, in vain do we consult the writings of learned men, and trace the dark footsteps of antiquity; we need only draw the curtain of words, to behold the fairest tree of knowledge, whose fruit is excellent, and within the reach of our hand. #Quote by George Berkeley
Fruit quotes by Stormie O'martian
#146. Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward. PSALM 127:3 #Quote by Stormie O'martian
Fruit quotes by Ronald D. Moore
#147. The flower inside the fruit that is both its parent and its child. Decadent as ancestors. The portal and that which passes. Nuclear devices activated, and the machine keeps pushing time through the cogs, like paste into strings into paste again, and only the machine keeps using time to make time to make time. And when the machine stops, time was an illusion that we created free will. #Quote by Ronald D. Moore
Fruit quotes by John Bunyan
#148. The conversation between Faithful and Talkative ends when Faithful challenges Talkative to show in his life the fruits of the truths he so easily talks about. This conversation exposes the matter, and the false pilgrim is soon separated from the true pilgrim.
To cry out against sin but to tolerate it comfortably in the heart is an equation that sums up the false pretense of Talkative. The work of grace in the heart offers proofs that cannot be denied. The eloquent Talkative simply lacks the experiential work of grace in his heart.
Again, Christians should be warned not to judge too quickly, since many Christians struggle with sin and surrender in the battlefield of life and often fail. The important thing to understand is that God will always produce a fruitful life in those He has conquered and occupies. The same Lord will disqualify those whose religion is only talk by ordaining that their life lacks the abundance of genuine good fruit while bad fruit abounds.
5. #Quote by John Bunyan
Fruit quotes by Gerard Manley Hopkins
#149. I awoke in the Midsummer not to call night, in the white and the walk of the morning:
The moon, dwindled and thinned to the fringe of a finger-nail held to the candle,
Or paring of paradisaical fruit, lovely in waning but lustreless,
Stepped from the stool, drew back from the barrow, of dark Maenefa the mountain;
A cusp still clasped him, a fluke yet fanged him, entangled him, not quite utterly.
This was the prized, the desirable sight, unsought, presented so easily,
Parted me leaf and leaf, divided me, eyelid and eyelid of slumber. #Quote by Gerard Manley Hopkins
Fruit quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#150. Harry paused with his fork held in midair, mesmerized by the sight of her slim fingers twirling the honey stick, meticulously filling each hole with thick umber liquid. Realizing that he was staring, Harry took a bite of his breakfast. Poppy replaced the honey stick in a small silver pot. Discovering a stray drop of sweetness on the tip of her thumb, she lifted it to her lips and sucked it clean.
Harry choked a little, reached for his tea, and took a swallow. The beverage scalded his tongue, causing him to flinch and curse.
Poppy gave him an odd look. "Is there anything the matter?"
Nothing. Except that watching his wife eating breakfast was the most erotic act he had ever seen. "Nothing at all," Harry said scratchily. "Tea's hot."
When he dared to look at Poppy again, she was consuming a fresh strawberry, holding it by the green stem. Her lips rounded in a luscious pucker as she bit neatly into the ripe flesh of the fruit. Christ. He moved uncomfortably in his chair, while all the unsatisfied desire of the previous night reawakened with a vengeance. Poppy ate two more strawberries, nibbling slowly, while Harry tried to ignore her. Heat collected beneath his clothing, and he used a napkin to blot his forehead.
Poppy lifted a bite of honey-soaked crumpet to her mouth, and gave him a perplexed glance. "Are you feeling well?"
"It's too warm in here," Harry said irritably, while lurid thoughts went through his mind. Thoughts involving honey, and soft #Quote by Lisa Kleypas

Fruit quotes by John Straley
#152. I didn't notice I was crying until a stewardess came by and gave me a tissue to blow my nose in. Her arm and wrist were slender and they formed a pretty arch, like the limb of a fruit tree, as she poked the tissue into my clenched fist. She didn't look at my eyes. It was a perfect gesture, an expression of indifference and concern, which is the most a drunk can ask for. #Quote by John Straley
Fruit quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#153. You can't keep your feet on the ground, hoping to enjoy the fruits of your labour. The fruits are on the top; keep climbing till you pluck them with your hands! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Fruit quotes by Oswald Chambers
#154. Watch for the storms of God. The only way God plants His saints is through the whirlwind of His storms. Will you be proven to be an empty pod with no seed inside? That will depend on whether or not you are actually living in the light of the vision you have seen. Let God send you out through His storm, and don't go until He does. If you select your own spot to be planted, you will prove yourself to be an unproductive, empty pod. However, if you allow God to plant you, you will "bear much fruit" (John 15:8). It is essential that we live and "walk in the light" of God's vision for us (1 John 1:7). #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Fruit quotes by Sharon Gannon
#155. Eating vegetables, fruits and grains rarely causes total destruction of the plant or tree on which the food grew; after harvesting, seeds remain to be replanted the next season. But this certainly does not happen when an animal is slaughtered - death is final; that animal will not reproduce again! #Quote by Sharon Gannon
Fruit quotes by Therese De Lisieux
#156. Most of us pass our lives away eating the husks of life. Within them, beneath the rind, is a sweeter fruit than ever we have tasted. How shall we find it unless the rind is peeled away by Wisdom greater than our own, by a Love whose ways are strange and bewildering to us. #Quote by Therese De Lisieux
Fruit quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#157. Manners are not idle, but the fruit of loyal and of noble mind. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Fruit quotes by Marianne Williamson
#158. According to ancient Asian philosophy, life is not a circle but a spiral. Every life lesson that has ever been presented to you (which means everything you have ever been through) will come back again, in some form, until you learn it. And the stakes each time will be higher. Whatever you've learned will bear greater fruit. Whatever you've failed to learn will bear harsher consequences. Whatever didn't work in your life before this point was a reflection of the fact that you hadn't yet integrated the different parts of yourself. Where you didn't yet accept yourself, you attracted a lack of acceptance in others. Where you hadn't yet dealt with your shadows, you manifested shadowy situations. Broken parts of you encountered broken parts of others. So now you know! That was then and this is now. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Fruit quotes by Jerry Seinfeld

Fruit quotes by Mary Wortley Montagu
#160. I have never, in all my various travels, seen but two sorts of people I mean men and women, who always have been, and ever will be, the same. The same vices and the same follies have been the fruit of all ages, though sometimes under different names. #Quote by Mary Wortley Montagu
Fruit quotes by Ramona Ausubel
#161. The privilege of money, as Edgar's parents saw it, was that you could get yourself into the great wild beauty - the thousand-meter-deep sea, the wide open West, an island inhabited mostly by dangerous animals, and feel alive and real - and then come over the crest of the hill and have someone meet you with a silver tray containing fresh fruit, aged scotch, a cold towel for your hands, and show you to a seat with a perfect view from which to tell the story of your adventure. #Quote by Ramona Ausubel
Fruit quotes by Marcel Proust
#162. Recalling, some time later, what I had felt at the time, I distinguished the impression of having been held for a moment in her mouth, myself, naked, without any of the social attributes which belonged equally to her other playmates and, when she used my surname, to my parents, accessories of which her lips - by the effort she made, a little after her father's manner, to articulate the words to which she wished to give a special emphasis - had the air of stripping, of divesting me, like the skin from a fruit of which one can swallow only the pulp, while her glance, adapting itself to the same new degree of intimacy as her speech, fell on me also more directly and testified to the consciousness, the pleasure, even the gratitude that it felt by accompanying itself with a smile. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Fruit quotes by Jesse Jackson
#163. You can't plant a seed and pick the fruit the next morning. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Fruit quotes by Mikhail Naimy
#164. Love is the law of God. You live that you may learn to love. You love
that you may learn to live. No other lesson is required of Man.You are
the tree of Life. Beware of fractionating yourselves. Set not a fruit against a fruit, a leaf against a leaf, a bough against a bough; nor
set the stem against the roots; nor set the tree against the mother-
soil. That is precisely what you do when you love one part more than
the rest, or to the exclusion of the rest. No love is possible except
by the love of self. No self is real save the All-embracing Self.
Therefore is God all Love, because he loves himself. So long as you
are pained by Love, you have not found your real self, nor have you
found the golden key of Love. Because you love an ephemeral self, your
love is ephemeral. #Quote by Mikhail Naimy
Fruit quotes by Steven Erikson
#165. Language was war, vaster than any host of swords, spears and sorcery. The self waging battle against everyone else. Borders enacted, defended, sallies and breaches, fields of corpses rotting like tumbled fruit. Words ever seeking allies, ever seeking iconic verisimilitude in the heaving press. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Fruit quotes by Adolfo Perez Esquivel

Fruit quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#176. Bodily delight is a sense experience, just like pure seeing or the pure feeling with which a lovely fruit fills the tongue; it is a great boundless experience which is given us, a knowing of the world, the fullness and the splendour of all knowing. Our acceptance of it is not bad; what is bad is that almost all men misuse and squander this experience, and apply it as a stimulus to the weary places of their life, a dissipation instead of a rallying for the heights. Mankind have turned eating, too, into something else: want on the one hand, and superfluity on the other, have dulled the clarity of this need, and all those deep, simple necessities by which life renews itself have become similarly dull. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Fruit quotes by W.S. Merwin
#177. Place"

On the last day of the world
I would want to plant a tree

what for
not the fruit

the tree that bears the fruit
is not the one that was planted

I want the tree that stands
in the earth for the first time

with the sun already
going down

and the water
touching its roots

in the earth full of the dead
and the clouds passing

one by one
over its leaves #Quote by W.S. Merwin
Fruit quotes by Monique Truong
#178. Quinces are ripe...when they are the yellow of canary wings in midflight. they are ripe when their scent teases you with the snap of green apples and the perfumed embrace of coral roses. but even then quinces remain a fruit, hard and obstinate--useless...until they are simmered, coddled for hours above a low, steady flame. add honey and water and watch their dry, bone-colored flesh soak-up the heat, coating itself in an opulent orange, not of the sunrises that you never see but of the insides of tree-ripened papayas, a color you can taste. to answer your question__love is not a bowl of quinces yellowing in a blue and white china bowl, seen but untouched__. ~The Book of Salt #Quote by Monique Truong
Fruit quotes by Jose Marti
#179. No fruit on earth can rival the cemetery's crop #Quote by Jose Marti
Fruit quotes by Rajneesh
#180. The fruit does not come from the outside, the fruit is created within you. Whatever you do, you develop receptivity for it inside yourself. Someone who wants love should give his love. Someone who wants bliss should start sharing his bliss. Someone who wants flowers to shower in his home should shower flowers in other people's homes. There is no other way. So compassion is an emotion that each person has to develop in order to enter into meditation. #Quote by Rajneesh
Fruit quotes by Rachael Taylor
#181. I eat excellent bread, clean meat, good crisp veggies, organic fruits and nice wine and cheese. It is one of the things I am truly grateful for. I'm not kidding. You can't ask a single mother of three working two jobs for minimum wage to eat that way. I am lucky. #Quote by Rachael Taylor
Fruit quotes by Christopher Dunn
#182. Modern electrical power distribution technology is largely the fruit of the labors of two men - Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. Compared with Edison, Tesla is relatively unknown, yet he invented the alternating electric current generation and distribution system that supplanted Edison's direct current technology and that is the system currently in use today. Tesla also had a vision of delivering electricity to the world that was revolutionary and unique. If his research had come to fruition, the technological landscape would be entirely different than it is today. Power lines and the insulated towers that carry them over thousands of country and city miles would not distract our view. Tesla believed that by using the electrical potential of the Earth, it would be possible to transmit electricity through the Earth and the atmosphere without using wires. With suitable receiving devices, the electricity could be used in remote parts of the planet. Along with the transmission of electricity, Tesla proposed a system of global communication, following an inspired realization that, to electricity, the Earth was nothing more than a small, round metal ball.
[...]
With $150,000 in financial support from J. Pierpont Morgan and other backers, Tesla built a radio transmission tower at Wardenclyffe, Long Island, that promised - along with other less widely popular benefits - to provide communication to people in the far corners of the world who needed no more than a handheld rece #Quote by Christopher Dunn
Fruit quotes by Ethan Hawke
#183. Habit, routine, and too much consistency numb our minds and pave the road for us to sleepwalk through our lives. Nothing stays the same. Everything passes, and everything changes. However, do not move too much. As an apple tree cannot bear fruit if it is too often transplanted, neither will a knight who is always building a new castle. #Quote by Ethan Hawke
Fruit quotes by Joanne Harris
#184. Drunkeness, she told us in a rare moment of confidence, is a sin against the fruit, the tree, the wine itself. Wine, distilled and nurtured from bud into fruit; it deserves reverance. Joy. Gentleness.
(Page 194.) #Quote by Joanne Harris
Fruit quotes by Billy Graham
#185. The great crowds themselves are meaningless. The thing that counts is what happens in the hearts of the people. The evangelist sows the seed, and much inevitably falls upon stony ground and bears no fruit. But if only a few seeds flourish, the results are manifold. #Quote by Billy Graham
Fruit quotes by Michelle Moran
#186. Repeat the names," my mother instructs, and we listen while Paschal recites the names of the months.
"Vintage, Fog, Frost, Snow, Rain …" He hesitates on the sixth month.
"Wind," she says helpfully. We are all sitting at the caissier's desk, and it is very important he get this right.
"Wind," he repeats after her. "Seed, Blossoms, M-Mead - "
"Meadows," I say.
"Meadows, Harvesting, Heat, and Fruit."
Isabel claps. "Very good."
"And what year is this?" my mother asks.
Paschal frowns. "Seventeen ninety-three?"
"No," Isabel says forcefully. "It is Year Two."
"But I don't understand."
"The first year began on September twenty-second, seventeen ninety-two." The day France declared itself the First Republic.
"But how?" He doesn't see how he could have been alive before time began.
"That is the decree of the Convention," she explains. #Quote by Michelle Moran
Fruit quotes by Suzy Kassem
#187. As long as the ego overcomes the heart of a man, evil will always exist, and the enemies of God will continue to multiply and thrive. If a tree is bearing bad fruit, you do not destroy the tree by cutting off its branches or eliminating its fruit, but by destroying its roots. I want you to look at the world as this poisoned tree. Even if we eliminate our enemies today, we will create new ones tomorrow. The solution is very simple and this formula is written in all your holy books. LOVE IS THY ANSWER. The strongest weapon to destroy the snakes of hate and evil is LOVE. PURE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. However, to be able to emit the right frequency of love, you must succeed daily in your own personal battle of good versus evil: heart (conscience) vs. mind (ego). Once you learn how to use your heart to embrace all living things as you do your own reflection, and use your heart to detect truths and dictate your actions, your heart will not be fully activated to LOVE. Where there is LOVE, there will remain Truth and LIGHT. Take away the LOVE, and you will always remain in the dark. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Fruit quotes by Esther Hicks
#188. Always, when you know what you don't want, that's when the rocket of desire is born of what you do want. That is the fruit of your experience. Now pluck it and savor it and enjoy it. Visualize it, and find the feeling place of it. And live happily ever after, once you get the hang of this. #Quote by Esther Hicks

Fruit quotes by N.M. Kelby
#191. He closed his eyes and tried to remember the taste of snow apples. When he was a child, there was a gnarled tree of them behind his father's blacksmith shop. His mother would always pick them but there were never enough for more than a single tart. Spicy and yet sweet, like McIntosh, but the flesh was so impossibly white, pristine, and the juice was so abundant, that it was like no other apple he had ever tasted. #Quote by N.M. Kelby
Fruit quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo

and success is the fruit. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Fruit quotes by Lloyd D. Newell
#193. Meaningful relationships are worth more than hundred-dollar trees, and they deserve all the time, effort, and energy they need to become strong and beautiful. Then, once the roots are well established, such relationships can continue to grow-even under difficult circumstances. Trust and understanding will nurture the relationship, and eventually, the flowers of love will blossom and bear sweet fruit. #Quote by Lloyd D. Newell
Fruit quotes by Matt Taibbi
#194. Goldman is not a company of geniuses, it's a company of criminals. And far from being the best fruit of a democratic, capitalist society, it's the apotheosis of the Grifter Era, a parasitic enterprise that has attached itself to the American government and taxpayer and shamelessly engorged itself on us all. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Fruit quotes by Maria Montessori
#195. All our handling of the child will bear fruit, not only at the moment, but in the adult they are destined to become. #Quote by Maria Montessori
Fruit quotes by Nelson Mandela
#196. Sabotage did not involve loss of life, and it offered the best hope for future race relations. Bitterness would be kept to a minimum and, if the policy bore fruit, democratic government could become a reality. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Fruit quotes by Fredrika Bremer
#197. For the first time I tasted this tropical fruit, which people here are so fond of ... I could have fancied I was biting into soap. I have a notion that we shall not become very good friends, the banana and I. #Quote by Fredrika Bremer

Fruit quotes by Rumi
#200. The Worm's Waking
by Rumi
This is How a Human Being Can Change:

There's a worm addicted to eating
grape leaves.

Suddenly, he wakes up,
call it grace, whatever, something
wakes him, and he's no longer
a worm.

He's the entire vineyard,
and the orchard too,
the fruit, the trunks,
a growing wisdom and joy
that doesn't need
to devour. #Quote by Rumi
