Thursday Thirteen # 3: Coffee Quotes

For the 100th edition of Thursday Thirteen (and my third post) I thought of putting together two of my favorites: coffee and quotes. Here are 13 coffee quotes that will (hopefully) fuel warm, heady coffee-clouded thoughts.

1. Coffee smells like freshly ground heaven--Jessi Lane Adams

2. I had some dreams; they were clouds in my coffee--Carly Simon

3. I have measured out my life with coffee spoons--T.S.Eliot

4. 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

5. Coffee makes us severe, and grave and philosophical--Jonathan Swift

6. Without my morning coffee I'm just like a dried-up piece of roast goat--Johann Sebastian Bach

7. Black as the devil, Hot as hell. Pure as an angel, Sweet as love--Perigord

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

9. The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce--Oliver Wendell Holmes

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

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

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

13. Given enough coffee, I could rule the world--Anonymous

Have a great brew!
