Famous Quotes: William Gladstone
My comment: Looking out my window at the steady drizzling rain of November, the cold mist hiding the Coast Range mountains of Oregon on the west coast of the United States, there was only one thing to do--have a cup of beautiful Dragon Well Tea.
Now I become part of thousands of years when billions of people throughout the world have done this very thing, to drink a cup of tea, gather their thoughts, and turn approaching winter into poetry and beauty.
Now, like Gladstone, I become warm and cool, cheered and calmed at the same time.
"Tea is wealth itself, because there is nothing that cannot be lost, no problem that will not disappear, no burden that will not float away, between the first sip and the last." The Minister of Leaves, Republic of Tea.
Famous Quotes: Marcel Proust
"...automatically, worn out by the gloomy day and by the perspective of a sad tomorrow, I put in my mouth a spoonful of tea in which I had softened a piece of the madeleine...A delicious pleasure overtook me, isolated, disconnected from any idea about its cause. It immediately made life's vicissitudes indifferent to me, life's disasters became innocuous, its brevity illusory, in the same way that love operates, filling me with a precious essence: or, rather, this essence was not in me, it was me."
Remembrance Of Things Past (AKA In Search Of Lost Time) 1913, Marcel Proust, French novelist, 1871-1922

"Tea quenches tears and thirst." Jeanine Larmoth and Charlotte Turgeon, 1972
