a tea moment
“Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis on which the earth revolves;
Slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future;
Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
love that one! Here are 2 offerings:
“If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are too heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you.” ~Gladstone, 1865
“Tea is a cup of life.” ~Author Unknown
I started a thread a while ago looking for tea quotes for a tattoo, here are the ones I posted
Tea tempers the spirit and harmonizes the mind.
One sip of this will bathe the drooping spirits in a light, beyond the bliss of dreams.
A home without tea is merely a house.
Come let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things
tattooed_tea: did you end up getting a tea quote tattoo?
Oh, I love the ‘happy things’ one. :)
Serenity I haven’t yet, turns out the teapot I wanted someone else got, so I am on the hunt for the perfect teapot & still looking for the perfect quote.
tattooed_tea: I hope you will share with us what you end up choosing, if that feels right. :)
Tea Poem: A Cup Of Tea
When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
The world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.
