Mmmmm. . . Coffee

I've turned into a complete coffee addict. Love the stuff. Love, love, love it!

The reason I'm writing this post is because I usually have 2 cups of coffee in the morning, and that's it for the day.  But today, for some reason the guy who sits next to me got a cup of coffee this afternoon. I sat there and smelled it, and it smelled so good, and I finally had to go get myself a cup.

It's delicious. Sweet, sweet sin.  Oh, wait--I'm no longer in thrall to an organisation that declares coffee to be sinful.  So I shall drink on, and enjoy every last drop of it.  And just to give you some coffee for thought, enjoy the following quotations:

No one can understand the truth until he drinks of coffee's frothy goodness.  ~Sheik Abd-al-Kadir

Over second and third cups flow matters of high finance, high state, common gossip and low comedy.  [Coffee] is a social binder, a warmer of tongues, a soberer of minds, a stimulant of wit, a foiler of sleep if you want it so.  From roadside mugs to the classic demi-tasse, it is the perfect democrat.  ~Author Unknown

No coffee can be good in the mouth that does not first send a sweet offering of odor to the nostrils.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

A morning without coffee is like sleep.  ~Author Unknown

I believe humans get a lot done, not because we're smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee.  ~Flash Rosenberg

Way too much coffee.  But if it weren't for the coffee, I'd have no identifiable personality whatsoever.  ~David Letterman

Sleep is a symptom of caffeine deprivation.  ~Author Unknown

This coffee falls into your stomach, and straightway there is a general commotion.  Ideas begin to move like the battalions of the Grand Army of the battlefield, and the battle takes place.  Things remembered arrive at full gallop, ensuing to the wind.  The light cavalry of comparisons deliver a magnificent deploying charge, the artillery of logic hurry up with their train and ammunition, the shafts of with start up like sharpshooters.  Similes arise, the paper is covered with ink; for the struggle commences and is concluded with torrents of black water, just as a battle with powder.  ~Honore de Balzac, "The Pleasures and Pains of Coffee"

Decaf?  No, it's dangerous to dilute my caffeine stream.  ~Author Unknown

Coffee, the finest organic suspension ever devised.  ~Star Trek: Voyager

He was my cream, and I was his coffee -
And when you poured us together, it was something.
~Josephine Baker

Coffee is a beverage that puts one to sleep when not drank.  ~Alphonse Allais

Coffee smells like freshly ground heaven.  ~Jessi Lane Adams

Caffeine isn't a drug, it's a vitamin!  ~Author Unknown

There's nothing sweeter than a cup of bitter coffee.  ~Rian Aditia

Be a coffee-drinking individual - espresso yourself!  ~Author Unknown

I make serious coffee - so strong it wakes up the neighbors.  ~Author Unknown
Suave molecules of Mocha stir up your blood, without causing excess heat; the organ of thought receives from it a feeling of sympathy; work becomes easier and you will sit down without distress to your principal repast which will restore your body and afford you a calm, delicious night.  ~Prince Tallyrand

I don't have a problem with caffeine.  I have a problem without caffeine!  ~Author Unknown

Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee.  ~Stephanie Piro

I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee.  ~Carly Simon

Pure as an angel, Sweet as love.

Decaf is like masturbating with an oven mitt!  ~Robin Williams

Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures:
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz:
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
I will fear no Equal™:
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of The Starbucks:
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the House of Mochas forever.
~Author Unknown

Actually, this seems to be the basic need of the human heart in nearly every great crisis - a good hot cup of coffee.  ~Alexander King

Nothing is sad on a beautiful morning save to look down and realize you just had the last sip of coffee and the mug sits indifferently empty.  ~Terri Guillemets

I'd stop drinking coffee, but I'm no quitter.  ~Author Unknown

The voodoo priest and all his powders were as nothing compared to espresso, cappuccino, and mocha, which are stronger than all the religions of the world combined, and perhaps stronger than the human soul itself.  ~Mark Helprin, Memoir from Antproof Case, 1995

Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.  ~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Given enough coffee, I could rule the world.  ~Author Unknown

I think if I were a woman I'd wear coffee as a perfume.  ~John Van Druten


  1. Excellent! I'm going to go have some coffee now.

  2. I too, love love love coffee and have welcomed it back into my life eagerly as my mormonism faded.

  3. I am a tea drinker--never could get into coffee, even after I "allowed" myself to try it after leaving the church--but these quotations are very fun. I raise my teacup to you!
