On Tea

Make Tea, Not War. 
—Monty Python

If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty. 
– Japanese Proverb

It is very strange, this domination of our intellect by our digestive organs. We cannot work, we cannot think, unless our stomach wills so. It dictates to us our emotions, our passions. After eggs and bacon, it says, "Work!" After beefsteak and porter, it says, "Sleep!" After a cup of tea (two spoonsful for each cup, and don't let it stand more than three minutes), it says to the brain, "Now, rise, and show your strength. Be eloquent, and deep, and tender; see, with a clear eye, into Nature and into life; spread your white wings of quivering thought, and soar, a god-like spirit, over the whirling world beneath you, up through long lanes of flaming stars to the gates of eternity!" 
– Jerome K. Jerome, Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), 1889

A cup of tea is a cup of peace. 
– Soshitsu Sen XV, quoted by Kenneth S. Cohen

I always fear that creation will expire before tea time. 
– Reverend Sydney Smith

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. 
– Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Teacher

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, The Republic of Tea

We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe. 
– Rudyard Kipling, The Collected Poems of Rudyard Kipling

A crisis pauses during tea. 
– Terri Guillemets

A true warrior, like tea, shows his strength in hot water. 
– Chinese Proverb

When you have nobody you can make a cup of tea for, when nobody needs you, that's when I think life is over. 
– Audrey Hepburn

    1. এই কোটটা ওপরের সব কোট, ইন ফ্যাক্ট আমার পড়া সব কোটের থেকে ভালো। এই অসামান্য উক্তির সঙ্গে পরিচয় করানোর জন্য থ্যাংক ইউ, অরিজিত। জাস্ট বাঁধিয়ে রাখার মতো।
