Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Florence Wilson
As bitter wormwood never doth delicious honey yield,
Nor can the cheerful grape be reap’d from thistles in the field;
So who, in this uncertain life, deceitful joys pursue,
They fruits do seek upon such trees on which it never grew.
