Quote Left If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee. Quote Right
Quote Left Volunteers Many will be shocked to find, When the day of judgement nears, That there's a special place in Heaven Set aside for volunteers. Furnished with big recliners, Satin Couches and footstools, Where ther are no committee chairmen, Nor yard sale or rest area coffee to serve. No library duty or bulletin assembly, There will be nothing to print and staple. Not one thing to fold and mail, Telephone lists will be outlawed. But a finger snap will bring Cool drinks and gourmet dinners And rare treats fit for a king. You ask, Who'll serve these privileged few And work for all the're worth? Why, all those who reaped the benifits, And not once volunteered on Earth. Quote Right
Quote Left Coffee makes us severe, and grave, and philosophical. Quote Right
Quote Left It is the folly of too many to mistake the echo of a London coffee-house for the voice of the kingdom. Quote Right
Quote Left It's just like when you've got some coffee that's too black, which means it's too strong. What do you do? You integrate it with cream, you make it weak. But if you pour too much cream in it, you won't even know you ever had coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it puts you to sleep. Quote Right
Quote Left Never would it occur to a child that a sheep, a pig, a cow or a chicken was good to eat, while, like Milton's Adam, he would eagerly make a meal off fruits, nuts, thyme, mint, peas and broad beans which penetrate further and stimulate not only the appetite but other vague and deep nostalgias. We are closer to the Vegetable Kingdom than we know; is it not for man alone that mint, thyme, sage, and rosemary exhale crush me and eat me! -- for us that opium poppy, coffee-berry, tea-plant and vine perfect themselves? Their aim is to be absorbed by us, even if it can only be achieved by attaching themselves to roast mutton. Quote Right
Quote Left During the Depression, or back when we were fighting Hitler, people didn't have time to sue a company if the coffee was too hot. There were urgent, pressing problems. If you think you have it tough, read history books. Quote Right
Quote Left It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity. Quote Right
Quote Left The superiority of chocolate (hot chocolate), both for health and nourishment, will soon give it the same preference over tea and coffee in America which it has in Spain. . . Quote Right
Quote Left Coffee falls into the stomach ... ideas begin to move, things remembered arrive at full gallop ... the shafts of wit start up like sharp-shooters, similes arise, the paper is covered with ink... Quote Right
Quote Left Coffee is not for kids Quote Right
Quote Left This coffee plunges into the stomach...the mind is aroused, and ideas pour forth like the battalions of the Grand Army on the field of battle.... Memories charge at full gallop...the light cavalry of comparisons deploys itself magnificently; the artillery of logic hurry in with their train of ammunition; flashes of wit pop up like sharp-shooters. Quote Right
Quote Left There has come into existence, chiefly in America, a breed of men who claim to be feminists. They imagine that they have understood ''what women want'' and that they are capable of giving it to them. They help with the dishes at home and make their own coffee in the office, basking the while in the refulgent consciousness of virtue. Such men are apt to think of the true male feminists as utterly chauvinistic. Quote Right
Quote Left Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after. Quote Right
Quote Left It is extraordinary how the house and the simplest possessions of someone who has been left become so quickly sordid. Even the stain on the coffee cup seems not coffee but the physical manifestation of one's inner stain, the fatal blot that from the beginning had marked one for ultimate aloneness. Quote Right
Quote Left Do Lipton employees take coffee breaks? Quote Right
Quote Left Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after. Quote Right
Quote Left Is there no Latin word for Tea? Upon my soul, if I had known that I would have let the vulgar stuff alone. Quote Right
Quote Left I put instant coffee in a microwave oven and almost went back in time. Quote Right
Quote Left Tea! Thou soft, thou sober, sage, and venerable liquid, thou innocent pretence for bringing the wicked of both sexes together in a morning; thou female tongue-running, smile-smoothing, heart-opening, wink-tipping cordial, to whose glorious insipidity I owe the happiest moment of my life, let me fall prostrate thus, and . . . adore thee. Quote Right
Quote Left Chocolate, men, coffee - some things are better rich. Quote Right
Quote Left The best quality tea must have creases like the leather boot of Tartar horsemen, curl like the dewlap of a mighty bullock, unfold like a mist rising out of a ravine, gleam like a lake touched by a zephyr, and be wet and soft like a fine earth newly swept by rain. Quote Right
Quote Left A cup of coffee - real coffee - home-browned, home ground, home made, that comes to you dark as a hazel-eye, but changes to a golden bronze as you temper it with cream that never cheated, but was real cream from its birth, thick, tenderly yellow, perfectly sweet, neither lumpy nor frothing on the Java: such a cup of coffee is a match for twenty blue devils and will exorcise them all. Quote Right
Quote Left Black as the devil, Hot as hell, Pure as an angel, Sweet as love. Quote Right
Quote Left Probably millions of Americans got up this morning with a cup of coffee, a cigarette and a donut. No wonder they are sick and fouled up. Quote Right
Quote Left I did toy with the idea of doing a cook-book. The recipes were to be the routine ones: how to make dry toast, instant coffee, hearts of lettuce and brownies. But as an added attraction, at no extra charge, my idea was to put a fried egg on the cover. I think a lot of people who hate literature but love fried eggs would buy it if the price was right. Quote Right
Quote Left The manner in which Americans consume music has a lot to do with leaving it on their coffee tables, or using it as wallpaper for their lifestyles, like the score of a movie --it's consumed that way without any regard for how and why it's made. Quote Right
Quote Left Like everyone else who makes the mistake of getting older, I begin each day with coffee and obituaries Quote Right
Quote Left A year ago I was sitting at the same table having coffee (with Serbs). Some of those people put on uniforms and burned our houses. I can never live with those people again. Quote Right
Quote Left Coffee has two virtues: it is wet and warm. Quote Right

Quote Left When you engage in small talk with a friend of the past, everybody says the same thing. 'I've been good. Just busy.' Eventually you will get to the awkward part of the conversation where you agree to get coffee sometime but it never happens. You desperately wish to go back to the memories you share with them but it's different now. It can't be helped. It's not anybody's fault. We are just busy. Quote Right
Quote Left In our travels, when we become lost and then found is this familiar aroma, whether of mind or literally sent, our best in life direction should always point to Jehovah our God, because most times, we as his children aren't able to catch that smell of tomorrow's cup 'o' coffee today. Quote Right
