the bean has spoken

well i get no idea what i want to write here, but, since i see my friends photos on fb that taken place in anomali cafe, i decided to post about coffee.

there's an easy afternoon in a city of jakarta, when some chappies gather for easy talk, easy stories. it's taken hours until i realised some quotes shown at the wall of liberica cafe, the place where we hang-out. there are all quotes about coffee, which the most notable quotes are the ones come from benjamin franklin and napoleon bonaparte. no, i don't remember the quotes.

suddenly i have an idea to look for other quotes about coffee, the precious bean, which i pick the most i like. source:, and don't ask me for the authenticity of the quotes, though. 

coffee and love are best when they are hot.” -- german proverb
“strong coffee, much strong coffee, is what awakens me. coffee gives me warmth, waking, an unusual force and a pain that is not without very great pleasure.” -- napoleon bonaparte, emperor of the french
“I would rather suffer with coffee than be senseless.” -- napoleon bonaparte, emperor of french
“among the numerous luxuries of the table…coffee may be considered as one of the most valuable. It excites cheerfulness without intoxication; and the pleasing flow of spirits which it occasions…is never followed by sadness, languor or debility.” -- benjamin franklin, founding father of usa
“no one can understand the truth until he drinks of coffee’s frothy goodness." -- sheik abd al-qadir, a sufi
“coffee and tobacco are complete repose.” -- turkish proverb
"ah! how sweet coffee tastes!
lovelier than a thousand kisses,
sweeter far than muscatel wine!
i must have my coffee." -- johann sebastian bach, composer
“a mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems." -- albert einstein, a genius
“You can’t take the milk back from the coffee.” -- jamaican proverb
"A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent." - anonym

and this is the most quote i like, actually the conversation between lady astor, british politician, and sir winston churchill, uk prime minister,  “if i were your wife i would put poison in your coffee,” hence his reply was, “if i were your husband i would drink it.”
