Quote Garden - A cup of tea

There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

A book reads the better which is our own, and has been so long known to us, that we know the topography of its blots, and dog's ears, and can trace the dirt in it to having read it at tea with buttered muffins.
Charles Lamb

Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage.
Catherine Douzel

To a philosopher all news, as it is called, is gossip, and they who edit and read it are old women over their tea.
Henry David Thoreau

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.
C.S. Lewis
