Happiness is a wine of the rarest vintage, and seems insipid to a vulgar taste.
— Logan Pearsall Smith

We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.
Carl Jung vintage quote

In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.
— John Steinbeck

If you close your eyes, you could just as well imagine me to be vintage Ali MacGraw, circa 1968.
— Sandra Bernhard

No sooner is your ocean filled, than he grumbles that it might have been of better vintage. Try him with half of a Universe, of an Omnipotence, he sets to quarrelling with the proprietor of the other half, and declares himself the most maltreated of men. Always there is a black spot in our sunshine: it is even as I said, the Shadow of Ourselves.
— vintage quotation by Thomas Carlyle
