Sour Grapes, Simplicity and Miser explained

When you cannot afford something

And say you do not want it

Even though you do internally

It is called “Sour Grapes”.

When you can afford something

Want it and do not acquire the same

For the sake of austerity

It is called “Simplicity”.

When you can afford something

Want it and do not acquire the same

Because you do not want to spend money

And look down upon those who have it

It is called “Miser”
