William Shakespeare - William Butler - Francis Bacon - John Lennon - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe -
The strawberry grows underneath the nettle,
And wholesome berries thrive and ripen best
Neighboured by fruit of baser quality. Shakespeare, Henry V I i 61-63, Ely to Canterbury
Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did. William Butler, English physician
Like strawberry wives, that laid two or three great strawberries at the mouth of their pot, and all the rest were little ones. Francis Bacon, Apothegms 54
Let me take you down, ’cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry Fields forever … John Lennon, Strawberry Fields Forever, 1967
One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
