The Quoted Coffee – Chapter 2

The Quoted Coffee – Chapter 2

All of us understand the emotional truths and delightful idiosyncrasies that accompany our love of java. A few clever words or a well-crafted phrase can capture the coffee universe so precisely that we recognize ourselves at once. It is said that the ability to see ourselves in a lighthearted way is very healthy indeed.

Which brings us to Facebook and Instagram, oddly enough (or not). Distraction and blessing all at once. Some days, we are disciplined and utterly focused on the work at hand; at other times we easily stray into the universe of ideas, images and dialogue that flows before us like an invigorating stream. Then, there are those days when we come across an image or a few words that land on our lap in the nick of time to uplift our spirits out of sadness, even despair. Yes, there is a lot of drama on social media, but there is also a lot of good. We never know how deeply the simplest quote will shift a person’s mind, even to the point of banishing the blues.

It is with this appreciation for simple blessings in mind that we bring you chapter 2 of The Quote Coffee. We hope it brings a smile to your face. We begin with a few little gems, penned by self-confessed coffee lover Keith Wynn. Share them. You never know!

“It’s 6:55 am and I’m on my third cup of coffee. By noon, I’ll be able to solve advanced problems in quantum physics.” -Keith Wynn

“Me before coffee: today is really going to be a struggle. Me after coffee: I’m the king of the world!!!” -Keith Wynn

“Lists “coffee” as family member when filling out forms.” -Keith Wynn

“I’m on coffee #5 and I suddenly want to become a motivational speaker.” -Keith Wynn,

“Science may never come up with a better office communication system than the coffee break.” -Earl Wilson

“Seven days without coffee makes one WEAK.” -Author Unknown

We conclude with “The Old Coffee Pot,” a charming ode to coffee written by John W. Fellows and published in 1903 in The People’s Home Journal.

I love the smell of roses
Along about in June;
And I’d hang around and listen
To almost any tune;
But the fragrance and the music
That nothin’ else has got
Are the odor and the simmer
Of the old coffee pot.

~ John W. Fellows
