'My Life' is soft, with notes of pear and gardenia, but still bold, with a woody base.
— Mary J. Blige

Pear Drops were exciting because they had a dangerous taste. All of us were warned against eating them, and the result was that we ate them more than ever.
Roald Dahl pears quote

Opusculum paedagogicumThe pears are not viols,Nudes or bottles.They resemble nothing else.They are yellow formsComposed of curvesBulging toward the base.They are touched red.They are not flat surfacesHaving curved outlines.They are roundTapering toward the top.In the way they are modelledThere are bits of blue.A hard dry leaf hangsFrom the stem.The yellow glistens.It glistens with various yellows,Citrons, oranges and greensFlowering over the skin.The shadows of the pearsAre blobs on the green cloth.The pears are not seenAs the observer wills.
— Wallace Stevens

Your old virginity is like one of our French withered pears: it looks ill, it eats dryly.
— William Shakespeare

The seed of God is in us. Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer, it will thrive and grow up to God, whose seed it is; and accordingly its fruits will be God-nature. Pear seeds grow into pear trees, nut seeds into nut trees, and God-seed into God.
— pears quotation by Meister Eckhart
