Coffee

The greatest neuroscientist on the planet, Roland Griffiths (a neuroscientist at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine) said, “There’s nothing inherently wrong with being dependent on caffeine.”

Now that is a statement I can support! I love coffee. And I am not alone. “Caffeine is the world’s most popular mood-altering drug,” says David Schardt, senior nutritionist at the Center for Science in the Public Interest. I have to go make a second pot but here are some more great quotes about the greatest beverage in the world…

my favorite coffee coffee cupI believe humans get a lot done, not because we’re smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee.
~Flash Rosenberg

Sleep is a symptom of caffeine deprivation.
~Author Unknown

I bought a decaffeinated coffee table, you can’t even see a difference.
~Author Unknown

I make serious coffee – so strong it wakes up the neighbors.
~Author Unknown

In Seattle you haven’t had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while it’s running.
~Jeff Bezos

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 bet this kind of thing does not happen to heroin addicts. I bet that when serious heroin addicts go to purchase their heroin, they do not tolerate waiting in line while some dilettante in front of them orders a hazelnut smack-a-cino with cinnamon sprinkles.
~Dave Barry

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

Thanks to The Quote Garden for some of these nuggets of truth.
