Hear another parable: There was a certain householder , which planted a vineyard , and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower , and let it out to husbandmen , and went into a far country : And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

Oh! wherefore come ye forth in triumph from the North, With your hands and your feet, and your raiment all red? And wherefore doth your rout send forth a joyous shout?

Quotes reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 841-60.
