Coffee Is Real Good – Gertrude Stein

“Coffee is real good when you drink it gives you time to think. It’s a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.”
– Gertrude Stein

A Just Thinker… ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

A just thinker will allow full swing to his scepticism. I dip my pen in the blackest ink, because I am not afraid of falling into my ink pot…. We are of different opinions at different hours, but we always may be said to be at heart on the side of truth.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Worship,” The Conduct of Life, 1860
