Seven Quotations about Coffee

  • “Sometimes it is the smallest thing that saves us: the weather growing cold, a child’s smile, and a cup of excellent coffee.” ~ Jonathan Carroll
  • “Coffee is real good when you drink it gives you time to think. It’s a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.” ~ Gertrude Stein
  • “I’ll read my books and I’ll drink coffee and I’ll listen to music, and I’ll bolt the door.” ~ J. D. Salinger
  • “I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.” ~ T. S. Eliot
  • “When we drink coffee, ideas march in like the army” ~ Honore de Balzac
  • “To do good work one must eat well, be well housed, have one’s fling from time to time, smoke one’s pipe, and drink one’s coffee in peace” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
  • “We want to do a lot of stuff; we’re not in great shape, we didn’t get a good night’s sleep, we’re a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.” ~ Jerry Seinfeld
