Life is Like Coffee

Not everyone loves coffee. But for some of us, to drink a good cup of coffee is one of life’s great joys.

Perhaps we can’t say, as T.S Elliot once did:

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.

But all of us who share a passion for coffee follow a rich historical tradition!  Here are just a few examples:

Strong coffee, much strong coffee, is what awakens me. Coffee gives me warmth, waking, an unusual force and a pain that is not without very great pleasure. ( Napoleon Bonaparte)

Ah! How sweet coffee tastes! Lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine! (Coffee Cantata, J.S. Bach)

As soon as coffee is in your stomach, there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move…similes arise, the paper is covered. Coffee is your ally and writing ceases to be a struggle. (Honoré de Balzac)

I love my coffee! :)

So for all of my fellow coffee-lovers out there, here is a great little inspirational video: Life is Like Coffee
