A quote overheard on the Twin Peaks television show: “I’ve just arrived in New York City. What a place! Just smell those skyscrapers. Had breakfast at a little deli on Ninth Avenue. Cheese Danish and a cup of coffee, black as a moonless night. Hit the spot.”
Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks, provided this 1997 quote: “We would take something old and tired and common – coffee – and weave a sense of romance and community around it. We would rediscover the mystique and charm that had swirled around coffee throughout the centuries.”
Irvin Berlin wrote this in 1932:
“Just around the corner,
There’s a rainbow in the sky.
So let’s have another cup o’ coffee,
And let’s have another piece o’ pie.”
Comedian Dave Barry quipped, “It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity.”
I have to agree with Dave Berry!
In the movie Moonstruck, Cher commented:
“You make good coffee . . . You’re a slob, but you make good coffee.”
I could have written today’s quote:
I don’t have a problem with caffeine. I have a problem without caffeine! ~Author Unknown
Gertrude Stein said that, “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.”
