"An apple is believed to have grown on the tree of knowledge in the Garden
In Greek and Roman myths the apple is a symbol of love and beauty.
An apple may have at one time been an offering of thanks for providing an
education. It was traditional to providing housing and food for doctors,
teachers and preachers because these professionals could not be paid enough
for their tasks."
