Julian Bond
The days when the words Hollywood actor framed Ronald Reagan like bunny fingers as an ID tag and an implied insult seem far-off and quaint: nearly everybody in politics – candidate, consultant, pundit, and Tea Party crowd extra alike – is an actor now, a shameless ham in a hoked-up reality series that never stops.
James Wolcott

Keith Brantly

John Medina
I get a lot of letters from people saying, ‘How do I get into radio, how do I get into telly?’ and I wish there was an answer, because there’s no ladder. There are no parameters. You’ve just got to go in wherever you can, make the tea, and slowly make your way up the ladder.

Mandy Moore
Any musician who says he is playing better either on tea, the needle, or when he is juiced, is a plain, straight liar. When I get too much to drink, I can’t even finger well, let alone play decent ideas. You can miss the most important years of your life, the years of possible creation.

Ruth Jones
People can do whatever they want to, but I’m more pro-hetero. I’m not knocking it – I have friends that are gay. It’s just that it’s not my cup of tea, l guess. That’s all. People can do what they want.

I once got a postcard from a French poet who wrote – “you don’t know me but I’m always very grumpy when I get up in morning.

D.T. Suzuki
American-style iced tea is the perfect drink for a hot
Tom Holt
Someone is an ignoramus who would say that, ‘Oh, we had three hurricanes this year. This proves that somehow the climate is warming.’ The earth is 4.5 billion years old, and you’re going to say that we had four hurricanes and so it proves a theory?
Rand Paul
I write on a computer. On breaks, I’ll make myself green tea. I don’t want something too caffeinated. I guess I don’t believe in chemical enhancement of my writing. Just slight, but nothing crazy.

Nana Patekar
I have a Viking stove. The color is butter lemon, and I had to wait several months for it, because that color wasn’t available and I really wanted butter lemon! But I don’t know that it’s seriously ever been cooked on. I mean, I make tea every morning. Does that count?

Victor Banerjee
Crumpets for me are the quintessence of a British afternoon tea, the ideal winter warmer that would welcome me home from school.
Rachel Khoo
The beauty of the tea party movement is that it is independent and thus a true check and balance of the Republican and Democrat parties. It’s not a pawn of the GOP, thus untouchable in criticism of the Democrats – I view it as an unattached conscience of the Republican party.
Dana Loesch
I don’t think the Tea Party people are racist, except maybe a tiny portion of them. But there has been a deliberate effort – again, referring to Fox Broadcasting – to inject the race issue into it. They have actually called Obama a racist on television.
Jimmy Carter
I think Syria is often covered by phone. You have to talk to activists. You have to try to read the tea leaves. You have to talk to government officials. It’s remote-control reporting in a way.
Anthony Shadid

a crop of reflections to be reaped
in a winter of thorn
when icebergs of illusion will melt
to be served at high tea
and the spaces between the poles pinned down
Nancy Peters
After tea, we discussed a variety of topics before the fire; and Mrs. Micawber was good enough to sing us (in a small, thin, flat voice, which I remembered to have considered, when I first knew her, the very table-beer of acoustics) the favourite ballads of “The Dashing White Sergeant”, and “Little Tafflin”.
Charles Dickens

Nicole Krauss
There is not enough tea in the world to calm me.
Elizabeth May

Tenzin Palmo

Asha Parekh
Find yourself a cup of tea; the teapot is behind you. Now tell me about hundreds of things. Saki Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors.

Maxine Waters
Distorted realities have always been my cup of tea.
Virginia Woolf
Acting is the best job in the world. Look at the way they treat you when you turn up for work. They give you breakfast and a cup of tea and ask, ‘Are you all right’ They tart up your face, you say somebody else’s words, then pick up your check and go home. And you get days off. I tell you, it really is the way to live.

Shilpa Shetty
Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast, Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa around, And while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn Throws up a steamy column, and the cups That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each, So let us welcome peaceful evening in
William Cowper
I do think what the Tea Party also had was Obamacare and the unpopularity of that, at least at the time. And so whether there is something that is equally unpopular and equally galvanizing that is almost self-destructive from the administration, that’s another factor that we will wait and see.
Mark Shields
I’m a Christian, a wife, a mother, a homeschooler, a conservative, a citizen journalist, a talk radio host, an insatiable music nerd who plays a poor rhythm guitar, a blogger, a proud granddaughter of a sailor, and a proud tea partier in awe of the potential and the people in this movement.
Dana Loesch
Like all populist movements, the Tea Party will eventually peter out. It won’t succeed in returning America to the minimalist state of the 19th century.
Andrew Neil
Hotel tea is when you have to mix together a plastic envelope containing too much sugar, a small plastic pot of something which is not milk but has curdled anyway, and a thin brown packet seemingly containing the ashes of a cremated mole.
Frank Muir
When you don’t have a voice like Michele Bachmann’s, who personifies all of the good things that the Tea Party has come to mean to America, then it’s more difficult to have any sort of unified or representative message with the same profile in the media.
Trent Franks

Michael Winter

Ilona Andrews
Find yourself a cup; the teapot is behind you. Now tell me about hundreds of things.
Hector Hugh Munro
I’m an afternoon tea type of girl. I come from a Russian background where we love our teas. So between lunch and dinner after training I come home and I love a nice cup of tea with jam in it, as we drink it there. Black English Breakfast with raspberry jam is my favorite.
Maria Sharapova
[John Cassavetes] came backstage afterwards and introduced himself and we talked a bit, and then went for a little coffee at the Russian Tea Room next door. It just…started.
Gena Rowlands
If I feel like a night in, or if I have an early plane to catch, I like to make some chai tea and snack on dark chocolate while watching a movie on my projector and big screen. I’m crazy about all kinds of movies, especially the classic Steven Spielberg ones or ‘The Godfather.’

Barry Pain
In London, love and scandal are considered the best sweeteners of tea.
John Osborne
When I was younger, coming up in this industry, I was 17, 18 years old. You couldn’t tell me Beyonce wasn’t my friend. You couldn’t tell me that Janet Jackson wasn’t my girl. You couldn’t tell me that once I signed to my label that me and J.Lo weren’t going to have tea in L.A.
Lil Mama
…I leaped headlong into the Sea, and thereby have become more acquainted with the Soundings, the quicksands, and the rocks, than if I had stayed upon the green shore, and piped a silly pipe, and took tea and comfortable advice.
John Keats
I do hold very strongly that tea is better in England. There’s something in the milk. They must have special cows.

My evenings are usually spent eating cake with tea, which I should stop. Then I either hang with friends or watch something. I like my evenings free because that is when I get to spend time with myself, my dogs or with friends.
Zoya Akhtar
I can be a bit extreme. I’ll spend too much time running round the park, doing yoga and drinking green tea. I can get a bit obsessive. I have to rein it in sometimes.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
The tea party saved the Republican Party. In a broad sense, the tea party rescued it from being the fat, unhappy, querulous creature it had become, a party that didn’t remember anymore why it existed, or what its historical purpose was. The tea party, with its energy and earnestness, restored the GOP to itself.
Peggy Noonan
It will make the Tea Party look like a tea party.

Shakira’s music isn’t my cup of tea, but the way she moves her hips reminds me of the feeling you get when you climb the gym pole.
Brandon Boyd
She went from opera, park, assembly, play,
To morning walks, and prayers three hours a day.
To part her time ‘twixt reading and bohea,
To muse, and spill her solitary tea,
Or o’er cold coffee trifle with the spoon,
Count the slow clock, and dine exact at noon.
Alexander Pope
If you look underneath the surface of the Tea Party movement, on the other hand, you will find that it is not sophisticated. It’s not like these people have read the economist Friedrich August von Hayek.
Karl Rove
Like an electric tea-kettle, pornography comes to a boil very fast.
Mason Cooley
The day was warm and clear. Kids were playing soccer in the parking lots and women were sunning their babies and having their tea all over the lawns. The scene was entirely too cheery for journalism.

Tea, though ridiculed by those who are naturally coarse in their nervous sensibilities will always be the favorite beverage of the intellectual.
Thomas de Quincey
He boils milk with fresh ginger, a quarter of a vanilla bean, and tea that is so dark and fine-leaved that it looks like black dust. He strains it and puts cane sugar in both our cups.

Peter HГёeg
I always found it strange, when I went round to other people’s houses for tea and that, how strict their parents were.

Frederick Lenz
The only [working] ritual is making tea. I use the loose leaves and drink it by the gallon.

After Frankenstein, I feel as if I want to make a film about somebody having a nice cup of tea.
Kenneth Branagh
Whether I’m making a recipe or a piece of jewelry or a white-rose-and-jasmine tea or the perfume, I like to think of myself as a happy little sorceress, and if I could just have a little general store with all that stuff and give people a sense of my taste, that would be lovely.
Padma Lakshmi
When one kicks over a tea table and smashes everything but the sugar bowl, one may as well pick that up and drop it on the bricks, don’t you think?
Margery Allingham
As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything. Have a cold? Have some tea. Broken bones? There’s a tea for that too. Somewhere in her mother’s pantry, Laurel suspected, was a box of tea that said, ‘In case of Armageddon, steep three to five minutes’.
Aprilynne Pike
a women is like a tea’s only when she is in hot water that you realize how strong she is.
Carl Sandburg
Much of what happens in Love Always is really from overheard conversations in the Russian Tea Room. It’s an improvisation of the way certain Hollywood agents think and talk to each other.
Ann Beattie
If I was hosting a high tea at home the last thing I would want to do is make it too fussy for myself.
Adriano Zumbo
It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.
Neil Gaiman
I’m not much of a coffee person, but when I wake up and the sun is shining through the window, I’ll get a lil’ bit of green tea and get to work.
Flying Lotus
I can’t promote fitness tea for the rest of my life.
Karrueche Tran
Here thou, great Anna! Whom three realms obey, / Dost sometimes counsel take—and sometimes tea.
Alexander Pope
The wise man is he who is not surprised when he finds stale tea in a beautiful teapot!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
The equation Bubble Tea = Something to Look Forward To depressurizes the misery of capitalism and is a Hello Kitty band-aid on the festering wound of Neo-Liberalism.
Vanessa Veselka
The Tea Party is but one manifestation of a widening perception that the game is rigged in favor of the rich and powerful.
Robert Reich
It’s tempting to remember that the Tea Party had a peak and then the Republican Party establishment sort of beat it back down. And so these things are won in a day.
Mark Shields
I always fear that creation will expire before teatime.
Sydney Smith
My grandmother was this amazing woman in the Dominican Republic who used to read tea leaves and palms. She would cure people in her neighborhood by going into her garden, plucking a couple of leaves, and brewing teas.
Selenis Leyva
I don’t consider myself to be a Pete King Republican or a Ted Cruz Republican or a John Boehner Republican, or a Tea Party Republican.
Lee Zeldin
Under certain circumstances there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.
Henry James
She was forever tilted sideways by the notion that pain was inevitable, chance was cruel, and all human ingenuity should go towards the making of a good cup of tea.
Colum McCann
I respect your right to worship Satan, or to worship a tea kettle, or to be a NIMBY, or to be an asshole. There’s no law against being an asshole.
Chicken John
I don’t like tea that’s too sweet.
John Virgo
In nothing more is the English genius for domesticity more notably declared than in the institution of this festival-almost one may call it-of afternoon tea…the mere chink of cups and saucers tunes the mind to happy repose.
George Gissing
Remember, when you don’t know what to do, it never hurts to play Scrabble. It’s like reading the I Ching or tea leaves.
Kelly Link
Well, look, I’m as Tea Party as it gets.
Jason Chaffetz
I love essential oils – there’s one for every problem. It’s kind of like nature’s answers for what to put on your skin. I had acne when I was a teenager, and I did a pretty intense tea tree thing. You dilute it in a base oil, like carrot seed oil, which is good because it gives your face a little glow.
Weyes Blood
Growing up in Ireland, when my family received important news, good or bad, we would boil water and make tea. It was the first thing I did when my father died in 1984. This ritual allowed me a moment to take in the enormity of what had happened.
Roma Downey
I have a lot of tea in the morning. I always have toast and peanut butter.
Joanna Coles
The Tea Party elites gained extraordinary influence by being able to funnel millions of undisclosed dollars into campaigns with ads that distort the truth and attack government.
Chuck Schumer
I don’t know what’s happened to me. I’ve got a bit more sophisticated in my old age. I like a bit of jasmine tea. I love it.
Danny Dyer
It’s not all Obama’s fault: His plans to rebuild America’s energy infrastructure have been hampered by the recession, and his efforts on global warming have been stymied by Tea Party wackos and weak-kneed Democrats in Congress.
Jeff Goodell
For tea, though ridiculed by those who are naturally coarse in their nervous sensibilities, or are become so from wine-drinking, and are not susceptible of influence from so refined a stimulant, will always be the favourite beverage of the intellectual.
Thomas de Quincey
High tea is fun. It’s elegant and social and a great way not to have to devote yourself to a big meal but still have a drink and a relaxed time.
Adriano Zumbo
In a democracy, you don’t need anyone’s permission to form a new political party, publish a politically charged article, or organize a ‘tea party.’ And in open markets, individuals are free to buy and invest as they see fit.
Gary Hamel
The row of dolls watched her impassively from the bookshelf, their tea party propriety almost certainly offended.
Holly Black
I tried to commit suicide by sticking my head in the oven, but there was a cake in it.
Lesley Boone
While I’m at second slip I’m not just thinking of what I’m going to have for tea. I’m considering the match as well, wondering how I can help, if there is anything I can offer.
Andrew Flintoff
I’m a believer in the Tea Party. I love the Tea Party. I love the people in the Tea Party. And, yes, I have a lot of different likes and maybe dislikes. And I don’t know why.
Donald Trump
A cup of tea would restore my normality.
Douglas Adams
Facts quite often, I fear to confess, like lawyers, put me to sleep at noon. Not theories, however. Theories are invigorating and tonic. Give me an ounce of fact and I will produce you a ton of theory by tea this afternoon. That is, after all, my job.
Ray Bradbury
The good doctor put a spoon of tea into my honey.” “You’re drinking tea a honey badger made,” Jim said. “What did you expect?
Ilona Andrews
In America today, unfortunately, the right wing has been totally commandeered by the Tea Party, and it’s a bad thing for our party.
Jon Huntsman, Sr.
Many estates are spent in the getting, since women for tea forsake spinning and knitting, and men for punch forsake hewing and splitting.
Benjamin Franklin
Along with enough sleep and taking proper supplements, I steam – in my steam shower. I find it’s very healing, more than just your typical ‘tea and honey.’
Idina Menzel
‘Rage’ is the word that most often attaches itself to the Tea Party movement, and it’s true that, from the outside looking in, their public demonstrations appear to be more enraged than any political events in America since the race riots and anti-war protests of the 1960s.
Jonathan Raban
Power corrupts and there is way too much corrupted power. Stand up and monitor the government that is supposed to work for us. That’s what the Tea Party represents.
Ted Nugent
Very few restaurants do five services a day – breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, cocktail, theatre and dinner – and because of that we can offer something for everyone.
Gordon Ramsay
I regularly interact with officers over tea; it is part of my working style.
Narendra Modi
I’m a Cancerian, the typical crab with the tough outer shell and the soft bit in the middle. I don’t think I’ll ever come to terms with people being unnecessarily nasty, but I can take it if someone doesn’t like my music – I’m not everyone’s cup of tea.
Katherine Jenkins
There is something in the nature of tea that leads us into a world of quiet contemplation of life.
Lin Yutang
You ever dip your biscuit in your tea and it breaks. I swear now, you never get used to that.
Peter Kay
I think we have a Tea Party mandate, and that Tea Party mandate is for good-government type of things, things like term limits, things like a balanced budget amendment, things like read the bills for goodness sakes, things like that maybe Congress should only pass legislation that they apply to themselves as well.
Rand Paul
I’ve never cooked. I can’t do much more in the kitchen than make a cup of tea and some toast.
Ethel Merman
Next you will cry about taxation without representation, and throw a basket of tea into the harbor. You are indeed a very Jacobin at heart, and I think I must give up trying to cure you of it; I can but wash my hands and deny responsibility
Naomi Novik
Whether you find it through mediation or sighing over tea or just turning all your devices off for five minutes, listening is an ancient lifeline by which we are awakened time and again. Once reawakened, we more easily find our way to each other, and so help each other live.
Mark Nepo
Our trouble is that we drink too much tea. I see in this the slow revenge of the Orient, which has diverted the Yellow River down our throats.
J. B. Priestley
I sometimes throw in a couple of swears just to keep the Christian right off my tail. I wouldn’t want to be the tea party’s go-to comedian.
Gary Gulman
Tea time is a chance to slow down, pull back and appreciate our surroundings.
Letitia Baldrige
I’m an afternoon tea maven. I can tell you who has the best tea in every country.
Rita Moreno
But indeed I would rather have nothing but tea.
Jane Austen
It would be inaccurate to say the Tea Partiers are racists. What they are, in truth, are narcissists.
Matt Taibbi
You could not receive a young man in your room; you might be permitted to have him to tea in one of the public reception rooms, but you could accept no invitation from young men to tea or other entertainment without a chaperone from the College.
Dora Russell
I do old man things by default, just stay in the hotel room, eat oatmeal, and drink tea.
Many reporters have gone to Tea Party rallies looking for expressions of bigotry. What they have tended to find instead is a constitutional fundamentalism that argues that Washington has no right to tell individuals or states what to do.
Jacob Weisberg
I am so fond of tea that I could write a whole dissertation on its virtues. It comforts and enlivens without the risks attendant on spirituous liquors. Gentle herb! Let the florid grape yield to thee. Thy soft influence is a more safe inspirer of social joy.
James Boswell
Don’t read the sutras – practice meditation. Don’t take up the broom – practice meditation. Don’t plant tea seeds – practice meditation.
On the day of the game you get there quite early, about 10 o’clock for a 3 o’clock kick-off, because you do a little bit of filming early on. You need to meet the crew and they need to have time to get a cup of tea and all those things the crew like to do before they go out filming.
Jill Douglas
I’m the smartest at 8 A.M. I wake up at 6, drink three cups of Awake Tazo Tea and read five newspapers. I have to think up something every day, Monday to Friday.
John Waters
In many respects, I guess I would say I was into Tea Party before there was a Tea Party.
Jeb Hensarling
I’ve never drunk coffee. I’m convinced it has something to do with why my skin is good. I have either mint, green or black tea.
Saffron Aldridge
We sell tea in Starbucks, but I think the experience is very different. I think coffee is something that is quick – it’s transactional. I think tea is more Zen-like. It requires a different environment.
Howard Schultz
Well, that’s just a little hard, since I can’t even talk her into sparing your life, huh? You haven’t exactly endeared yourself to her. (Kat) Oh, excuse my utter lack of manners there. Should we call Mommy dearest and invite her over for tea? I promise to be on my best manners when I choke the life out of her. (Sin)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
She boasted the general battle-ax demeanor of an especially strict governess. This was the kind of woman who took her tea black, smoked cigars after midnight, played a mean game of cribbage, and kept a bevy of repulsive little dogs. Alexia liked her immediately.
Gail Carriger
I like to have my cup of green tea.
Pramila Jayapal
I’m not sure whether I’ve been happy. After my last book tour, I sat on my balcony with a cup of tea. I thought: ‘You can’t rewind the movie. I’ve spent more than half my life in the Middle East. There have been great moments of horror and depression and loneliness.’
Robert Fisk
Many people, improperly, lump together libertarians and the Tea Parties. That’s really wrong. Many of the libertarians are physicists, and many of the Tea Party people don’t bathe. There’s really not much in common there!
Alan Grayson
Nowadays, people are so jeezled up. If they took some chamomile tea and spent more time rocking on the porch in the evening listening to the liquid song of the hermit thrush, they might enjoy life more.
Tasha Tudor
Hold the sadness and pain of samsara [suffering, confusion] in your heart and at the same time the power and vision of the Great Eastern Sun [fundamental awake human nature]. Then the warrior [brave enough to look at & work with reality] can make a proper cup of tea.
Pema Chodron
I think the Tea Party has brought important issues to the table.
Roy Blunt
I always start my discussions with the Tea Party groups with telling them, ‘you know I have only three words for you: God. Bless. You.’ Because the Tea Party’s bringing the Republican party back to a more conservative base.
Richard Mourdock
I am grateful for what I call well-spent moments: Making a tuna fish sandwich with the works. Taking at least a half hour to eat it outside. Ironing my vintage tea towels while watching old black-and-white film noir movies and sipping one martini with extra olives – a quirky combination, but it works.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Show (don’t tell) your customers that you have good quality by actually delivering fresh coffee and tea. Intelligent people are active recipients of information, and prefer to reach conclusions by themselves.
Jerry Baldwin
He put the coffee in the cup. He put the milk in the cup of coffee. He put the sugar in the white coffee, with the tea-spoon he stirred. He drank the white coffee and he put the cup down. Without speaking to me.
Jacques Prevert
I’d feel bad pretending my life was anything other than pretty good, so I do the role as well as I can and then I go home, have a cup of tea, see my family and friends, and appreciate what I’ve got.
Olivia Colman
The Occupy movement needs an organizing principle, and – just as the Tea Party did – it needs some actual measures of success. Choose one candidate whose agenda is squarely within that of the movement and make his or her electoral success a focal point.
Eliot Spitzer
In a bouquet of mixed roses, most people can distinguish at a glance the delicacy of a tea rose from the voluptuousness of a cabbage rose, but how many could so readily differentiate between the tea rose’s scent of freshly harvested tea and the spicy, honeylike, rich floral scent of the cabbage?
Mandy Aftel
I go to bed early, and normally before I do, I have a tea – it’s a special tea that my doula gave me, and it takes about 25 minutes to make!
Margherita Missoni
When we rise in the morning… at the table we drink coffee which is provided to us by a South American, or tea by a Chinese, or cocoa by a West African; before we leave for our jobs we are already beholden to more than half the world.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I was 14, and I played this club that’s no longer there because it was poorly managed: the Texas Tea House in Fort Worth.
Maren Morris
We were having tea with my mother-in-law the other day and out of the blue she said, “I’ve decided I want to be cremated.” I said, “Alright, get your coat.”
Dave Spikey
When Im writing a novel, which is what I like to write, I get up early, sit zazen, make a pot of green tea. I wear wrist cuffs to keep my wrists warm and minimize irritation from extended contact with the surface of my desk. I sit down and write.
Ruth Ozeki
If you want to see God, kill desires. Desires are in the mind. When you have a desire for something, don’t act on it and it will go away. If you desire to drink this cup of tea, don’t, and the desire for it will go away.
Neem Karoli Baba
I’m not the girl that sits at home on a Saturday night plaiting her girlfriend’s hair, drinking tea and watching romantic comedies.
Ricki-Lee Coulter
The Tea Party has imparted political energy to common-sense American constitutionalism.
Nancy Pearcey
I think the Tea Party monicker has kind of outlived its use. I think this is just an America movement, I mean, and you and others are really, you know, responsible for igniting this new civic engagement that’s very positive.
Laura Ingraham
I just am a believer…that there are some things that happen for a reason…We may not be able to really discern it now…[but] given the perspective of time, I think we’re going to be able to look back at this, and what seemed really bad at the time may turn out to be really good.
Eric Cantor
It was just so in the American Revolution, in 1776, the first delicacy the men threw overboard in Boston harbor was the tea, woman’s favorite beverage. The tobacco and whiskey, though heavily taxed, they clung to with the tenacity of the devil-fish.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
I don’t like tea! Never have, never drunk it.
Catherine Tate
Freedom is not a tea party, India. Freedom is a war.
Salman Rushdie
Soup is cuisine’s kindest course. It breathes reassurance; it steams consolation; after a weary day it promotes sociability, as the five o’clock cup of tea or the cocktail hour.
Louis Pullig De Gouy
Where there’s tea there’s hope.
Arthur Wing Pinero
Harry found the [tea]… seemed to burn away a little of the fear fluttering in his chest.
J. K. Rowling
I want the ones that stood up for the Tea Party when the Tea Party was being pilloried by the mainstream media. I like the Bachmanns and the Palins and the Wests and I like the Herman Cains, I like Thaddeus McCotter, I like fighters, and I don’t like the poll-tested ones.
Andrew Breitbart
Marco Rubio was the darling of the Tea Party. Marco Rubio was elected as a Tea Party conservative Republican. Marco Rubio was sent to Washington clearly with the belief that he was part of a new conservative majority that was not tied to the establishment.
Rush Limbaugh
Let’s just say, the American school of suburban angst is not my cup of tea.
Katherine Dunn
I would look at the first chapter of any new novel as a final test of its merits. If there was a murdered man under the sofa in the first chapter, I read the story. If there was no murdered man under the sofa in the first chapter, I dismissed the story as tea-table twaddle, which it often really was.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
As long as it is hot, wet and goes down the right way, its fine with me.
Sarah Ferguson
I love driving at Monaco but the rest of it, well, I can absolutely take it or leave it. It’s extremely pretentious and really not my cup of tea.
Mark Webber
well with me now is Geoffrey Robinson. He was once voted ‘After-dinner Speaker of the Year’, so if you’ve had your tea, you’re in for a treat
Eddie Mair
If the Tea Party gets its way, there will be less government – which is great for the elites. They don’t need the government.
Chrystia Freeland
I shouldn’t think even millionaires could eat anything nicer than new bread and real butter and honey for tea.
Dodie Smith
To be honest, if you are not the manager’s cup of tea, you can’t do anything about it.
Wilfried Zaha
We used tea towels for gloves until we got proper ones and were always breaking our mum’s ornaments. She’d come home and find us all sat in our boxer shorts, out of breath and our skin red raw. She hated it.
Liam Smith
September is the time to begin again. In the country, when I could smell the wood-smoke in the forest, and the curtains could be drawn when the tea came in, on the first autumn evening, I always felt that my season of good luck had come.
Eleanor Perenyi
I know that philosophically a murderer is not responsible for his crime, but I prefer not to take tea with him.
Albert Einstein
I’m a chai tea latte monster. Anything syrupy!
Suki Waterhouse
The joy for me as a writer is that, despite the fact I spend most of my life on my own in a room eating too much chocolate and drinking too much tea, eventually they let me out into the world.
Abi Morgan
People are starting to notice the great divide. The Tea party sees the aloofness in a political elite that thinks it knows best and orders the rest of America to fall in line. The Occupy movement sees it in an economic elite that lives in mansions and flies on private jets.
Charles Murray
I will buy Victorian tea dresses and the like, but I don’t really think about them as investment pieces – just beautiful and vintage things.
Camille Rowe
Perhaps it is while drinking tea that I most of all enjoy the sense of leisure.
George Gissing
After university, I went into film. I started out making tea, managed a brief stint as an assistant director, then found myself writing a screenplay. In the end, I wrote quite a few – but by January 2006, I wanted out.
Nick Harkaway
I don’t think I’m capable of writing without caffeine. And most of the time, that caffeine comes from iced tea.
Taylor Jenkins Reid
We asked a lot of questions and we watched everyone who was working in the studio. And we had an opportunity to sit in on discussions, aesthetic discussions at the pottery, which took place generally over tea breaks in the morning and afternoon. So we learned a lot just from being around there [with Bernard Leach ].
Warren MacKenzie
Question your tea spoons.
Georges Perec
Fine. Since the tea is not forthcoming, let’s have a philosophical conversation.
Anton Chekhov
The idea of seeing everybody clad the same is not really my cup of tea.
Christian Lacroix
A lot of what you have seen with third-party groups – like the Tea Party – these folks are conservative, and they are fed up with people in Washington who are not working for them but against them.
Tim Griffin
He got me a cup of tea with honey, toast with honey, yogurt with honey, like I was John the Baptist with the flu.
Anne Lamott
The Tea Party, which is pretty darn clear on its main focus, which is fiscal restraint, financial restraint, economic restraint, and return to Constitutional values and Founding Fathers’ principles, had been impugned as racist, violent, homophobic, and all their motivations have been impugned.
Andrew Breitbart
My mother always tried to keep a little bit of British culture in our family. We’d drink tea all the time!
Kurt Cobain
I do think the Tea Party position will prevail, and I am often asked: ‘What has the Tea Party done and is it even still alive?’ People think because there have been no demonstrations with the ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ flag it’s gone, but it hasn’t.
Richard Mourdock
I accept I am not everyone’s cup of tea, but judge me over a period of time.
Steve Bruce
I understand that coffee and cigarettes are cool, fashionable and all that. But agree the tea with cookies still taste better.
Jared Leto
If you don’t wash dishes properly, you will get ill. And you will lose friends because they’ll come to your house, you’ll give them tea in a filthy cup, and they’ll never see you again.
Jon Richardson
Make different teas with the superherbs or create new smoothies with the superfoods. Better yet, take your superherb tea and blend it with your superfoods to make the best elixirs ever.
David Wolfe
To say that it is without pace, point, focus, interest, drama, wit or originality is to say simply that it does not happen to be my cup of tea.
Tom Stoppard
Tea is one of the main stays of civilization in this country.
George Orwell
When I makes tea I makes tea, as old mother Grogan said. And when I makes water I makes water.
James Joyce
I wouldn’t go back and be 25 again for all the tea in China.
Minnie Driver
Certain kinds of people will always have an issue with my music. But that’s fine; it’s OK. I don’t want to be the McDonald’s of music. I don’t want to not turn anyone off. If you were everybody’s cup of tea, you’d probably be boring.
Kacey Musgraves
If Japanese tea ‘stands,’ it acquires a coarse bitterness and an unwholesome astringency. Milk and sugar are not used.
Isabella Bird
Tea. I find that both settles the stomach and concentrates the mind. Wonderful drink, tea.
Cassandra Clare
The shouting, the overrunning of the Capitol, the sneaking in of Tea Party participants into the basement of the Capitol, the name-calling, the spitting, all of that… The Tea Party emerges as not only outrageous, but they have turned up the volume in ways that even Code Pink have not been able to do.
Maxine Waters
My advice to the tea party freshmen: Slow the galloping horses to a trot. Big government was built over decades; it can’t be dismantled in a year, especially when Democrats control the White House.
Ari Fleischer
When I wake up, I always drink tons of Guayaki organic yerba mate tea.
Lisa Edelstein
I write in Arabic and prefer writing my stories by hand. I need a cup of tea or coffee when I write. When I was in Syria, I was addicted to tea, but now I’m addicted to Starbucks.
Osama Alomar
There is nothing quite like a freshly brewed pot of tea to get you going in the morning.
Phyllis Logan
As a rule they will refuse even to sample a foreign dish, they regard such things as garlic and olive oil with disgust, life is unliveable to them unless they have tea and puddings.
George Orwell
I’ll start drinking tea over coffee when the big hand is on Never and the little hand is on Ain’t Gonna Happen.
James Lileks
I have a message from the Tea Party, a message that is loud and clear and does not mince words. We’ve come to take our government back.
Rand Paul
They pay little attention to what we say and prefer to read tea leaves.
Nikita Khrushchev
I try to drink lots of water and tea before bed.
Hannah Bronfman
I like Yorkshire Tea – very strong and English.
Elsa Peretti
Disrespect is tired. Shade is old. Sipping ‘tea’ isn’t cute. But loving, supporting, giving, being grateful and perpetuating light, is.
Grace Gealey
In our common parlance we speak of the man “with no tea” in him, when he is insusceptible to the serio-comic interests of the personal drama.
Okakura Kakuzo
There are some programs on FOX that are not only fair and balanced, they’re commentary shows. They don’t have to be. But they brag about how fair and balanced they are. They don’t cover rallies and tea parties. They cheer lead for rallies and tea parties. And as a journalist, I am totally against that.
Bernard Goldberg
If I’m in Italy, I’m going to have a cappuccino and two small brioches and then a mix of orange and grapefruit. I don’t drink tea in Italy.
Christian Louboutin
The society girl meets more dangers than the girl on the stage. There is more danger at a tango tea than in the theatre. The actor is less dangerous than the dancing master.
Lillian Russell
Lobster is not going to be as tasty with ice tea unless that ice tea is from Long Island.
Heather McDonald
People are unhappy with the direction of the country – we saw that with the rise of the Tea Party; we saw that when we had thousands of people at the statehouse in Concord, New Hampshire, protesting the government with more taxes and more spending.
Corey Lewandowski
After university, I was desperate to be an ambassador. It went back to geography: I loved the idea of living in exotic and exciting countries, but still driving a Land Rover and having tea. I failed the Foreign Office exams three times.
Ben Fogle
This meal happened to be a make-believe tea, and they sat round the board guzzling in their greed; and really, what with their chatter and recriminations, the noise, as Wendy said, was positively deafening.
James M. Barrie
One evening, when I was yet in my nurse’s arms, I wanted to touch the tea urn, which was boiling merrily … My nurse would have taken me away from the urn, but my mother said “Let him touch it.” So I touched it – and that was my first lesson in the meaning of liberty.
John Ruskin
Hot tea,” he said, holding the cups. “It’s just wrong.
Maureen Johnson
I was at St. Louis’s very first tea party and stood across the mighty Mississippi on the Arch steps with a bunch of wide-eyed, virgin protesters who were just as shocked as I was to see the amount of people who had assembled.
Dana Loesch
All these portrayals we see of knights fighting must be absolute rubbish because knights in armour could literally have only had two or three blows and then they’d have had to sit down to have a cup of tea.
Mark Strong
The Tea Party was born out of the disgust many Americans felt early in the financial crisis upon learning that the federal government was even contemplating reducing the principal on some troubled mortgages.
Mark Zandi
I say let the world go to hell, but I should always have my tea.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
A thoughtful cup of tea brought to your bedside each morning means more to me than the huge bouquet of flowers bought once a year.
Penny Jordan
Marco Rubio is interesting because he checks so many boxes when you think about what a Republican nominee needs. He brings Florida, he’s young, he’s Hispanic, the Tea Party likes him. But that said, he’s got issues, actually surprisingly, ironically, with Mexican-American voters.
Mark McKinnon
Life is like a cup of coffee or tea. No matter how bitter it may be, it is always enjoyable.
Jason Wong
Polly put the kettle on, we’ll all have tea.
Charles Dickens
I believe it is customary in good society to take some slight refreshment at five o’clock.
Oscar Wilde
The tea party had a lot of nasty tactics that were needlessly aggressive and petty and scary. But they proved it is indeed possible for a committed, relatively small number of folks across the country to make Congress listen to them and to slow and stop an agenda.
Ezra G. Levin
In “Three Cups of Tea” I was fairly critical of the military. And I mentioned that they’re laptop warriors and there’s no boots on the ground. But I can say now that they’ve gone through a tremendous learning curve.
Greg Mortenson
The Tea Party definitely scored a significant victory with Senator Cruz’s election in 2012 and scored victories in some statewide primaries. But to me, as the Tea Party gets stronger within the Republican Party in Texas, the prospect of a blue Texas becomes stronger and stronger.
Julian Castro
I try not to look any further ahead than the next cup of tea. You never know if that cuppa will come or not, do you?
Tamsin Greig
I like a Blackpool breakfast, me – 20 ciggies and a pot of tea.
Paul O’Grady
I pretty much only drink water, Tazo passion tea, or coffee with half and half, and it’s an ongoing joke in the office that I never have less than three glasses of water and some form of tea or coffee in front of me.
Ivanka Trump
The House Of Commons has never been a tea-party. It consists of strong-minded, often very idealistic people, who are trying to accomplish something for our country. We are inheritors of an adversarial system and that, in itself, fosters conflict.
John Allen Fraser
The Tea Party thing is only apt in some ways. The activism in the town halls, that looks superficially like it. But what the Tea Party did was, they went after the party, the Republican Party, as their vehicle. And parties is how you change history.
Mark Shields
unfortunately, we’re all out of bitter evange at the moment, so it’s either tea or nothing
Cassandra Clare
When I got the job on ‘Lost,’ I was a broke university student living in the crappiest part of town, with a duct-taped back window on a broken-down car. I existed on peanut butter and tea.
Evangeline Lilly
Lenscrafters is upset with Tea Partier Michele Bachmann because she called Planned Parenthood ‘the Lenscrafters of abortion.’ Lenscrafters released a statement today calling her ‘the Costco of crazy.’
Conan O’Brien
The Maori culture is different than our culture where we’re most likely to introduce ourselves by email or fax and we conduct a lot of business in an impersonal way, whereas for Maori, the only way to do it is to make the pilgrimage and sit down face-to-face and have some tea.
Niki Caro
It’s quite amazing to me, as I walk around a supermarket or a health food shop, to observe the number of Fairtrade choices: not just staples such as coffee, tea, fresh fruits and rice, but cocoa and chocolate, herbs and spices, honey, ice cream, and jams.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
I would make the tea on a Daniel Day-Lewis set just to observe how he crafts roles like he did in ‘My Left Foot.’ That was the equivalent of seeing Haley’s Comet for me. I just couldn’t understand how that was possible.
David Oyelowo
Wine is the drink of the gods, milk the drink of babes, tea the drink of women, and water the drink of beasts.
John Stuart Blackie
Oh, we’re playing nice now? Shall we have tea first? Brew up a nice pot of kiss-my-ass?
Julie Kagawa
I inhaled Dickens as a kid, and I’ve always been fascinated by the Victorians. So many ridiculous objects they had! They created things like mustache cups, so you wouldn’t wet your mustache when you were drinking tea. And eyebrow combs. What’s happened to all the eyebrow combs? Marvelous things.
Edward Carey
The extremely low respect Congress enjoys among the population indicates that the citizens understand broadly what’s going on. But the lack of a realistic political reform path leads to apathy and the kind of mindless frustration that manifests itself in the Tea Party-style hatred of any and all government.
Thomas Pogge
Breakfast is the most important meal for me. I love porridge, which I have with water, and some fruit, usually raspberries or melon. And I drink hot water with lemon and green tea.
Jo Frost
If there are no spots on a sugar cube then I’ve just put a dice in my tea.
Robert Rankin
There are a lot of podcasters that are females of color. And I think that we should be allowed to tell a very specific kind of story. And if you don’t like it, you don’t like it. But if you do, enjoy the tea! Sip that tea.
Jessica Williams
My mum would take us to ballet, and we used to go as a family to Brownies. My dad used to take us to Saturday music school. My parents would never say: ‘Oh, you’ve got to practice your violin now before tea.’ We were self-motivated.
Corinne Bailey Rae
Everything depends on the Americans. If they want to make war for 20 years then we shall make war for 20 years. If they want to make peace, we shall make peace and invite them to tea afterwards.
Ho Chi Minh
Though rom-coms aren’t necessarily my cup of tea, I was a huge fan of ‘Notting Hill.’ I laughed a lot, and the romance got to me.
Domhnall Gleeson
I always take a teapot with me on tour. I suppose it’s only natural that I’ve just written a song called ‘Where Would We Be Without Tea?’
Gilbert O’Sullivan
You can find tea in a tea cup.. but cannot find world in a world cup.
Arjuna Ranatunga
A good cup of Earl Grey tea – you cant beat it.
Antonia Thomas
If me and my friends are feeling decadent, we go for afternoon tea.
Sophie McShera
Those Tea Party people are crazy. I mean, they’re lunatics. They close down the government, throw people out of their jobs – hundreds of thousands of people – and they say that they’re doing it ultimately in the interest of creating jobs.
George Takei
I don’t know cooking at all, but I think I can make simple tea.
Guru Randhawa
Tea, although an OrientalIs a gentleman at least;Cocoa is a cad and coward,Cocoa is a vulgar beast.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Socialists try to convince us that the tea becomes sweet not because of sugar, but because of mixing.
Janusz Korwin-Mikke
Does anybody think these people were just sitting around drinking tea?
Condoleezza Rice
When I played ball, I didn’t play for fun. . . . It’s no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out. It’s a contest and everything that implies, a struggle for supremacy, a survival of the fittest.
Ty Cobb
I’ve made major cutbacks. I used to love soda. So I’ve cut out soda completely, and I’ll drink iced tea or water for what I drink throughout my day. I just made that like a lifestyle change.
Khloe Kardashian
I’ve never had coffee. I’ve always hated the smell. It was always tea. I was a pretty typical kid, though. I grew up drinking Lipton. I didn’t know there was other tea to drink.
Billy Corgan
I spend my nights just sitting and reading a book and drinking my tea and walking my dog. That’s about as exciting as my life gets.
Peter Dinklage
Tea is a huge part of my life.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
I don’t care where you went to school. There – have I made your day? No? All right, I’ll go further: I also don’t care what your dad did for a living or how your mum voted. Nor do I mind whether you ate your tea in front of the telly, dinner at the kitchen table, or supper in the dining room.
Robert Webb
The tea-kettle is as much an English institution as aristocracy or the Prayer-Book.
Catharine Beecher
So, a lot of my supporters back home are members of the Tea Party.
Kristi Noem
One of the awesome things about being a writer is that I can research nearly anything – tea? Bubblegum? Ants? Neurology? Chocolate? Textile production? It doesn’t matter. It’s all productive work.
Ann Leckie
Time for Tolerance,Equality, and Acceptance, It’s allways TEA time with my Friends.
Gregory Douglass
In America we need members of the Latino community to come to the Tea Party movement and enrich the Tea Party.
Andrew Breitbart
I think that’s what activates the Tea Party Movement. What they see is the government interfering with their lives and with the inheritance of their children. Are we going to pass down liberty or deficits? And that’s really what this movement is about.
Sharron Angle
I feel like my mum is in heaven sharing a cup of tea with Lady Fate and plotting my life out like a chess game.
Jenny Frost
The Tea Party we were told is only about economics; not true. It was always about economics and social issues. They just hid the social issues and now we just see who they really are.
Andrew Sullivan
I carry lots of oils, since I have the driest skin in all the land! I switch up my facial oils, and I make them myself with coconut oil and tea tree oil.
Olivia Holt
What I owe the Tea Party is to be the conservative voice they elected me to be.
Tom Graves
I mean, the country is deeply divided. There is 35 percent of the people who are Tea Partiers or more in some of those states. So it’s probably going to be a difficult year, but there’s nothing that I think anyone can do about it.
Brad Carson
Papa sat down at the table and poured his tea from the china tea set with pink flowers on the edges. I waited for him to ask Jaja and me to take a sip, as he always did. A love sip, he called it, because you shared the little things you loved with the people you love.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I’m not paranoid, but I am cautious. I don’t drink tea with strangers, I don’t fly Aeroflot and I avoid certain countries with close ties to Russia.
Garry Kasparov
The old men running the industry just have not got a clue. They’ve got to come to terms with the fact that Britain is no longer a totally white place where people ride horses, wear long frocks and drink tea. The national dish is no longer fish and chips; it’s curry.
Marianne Jean-Baptiste
Mapping out dozens of deeply focused trips around the world has convinced me that preparation no more spoils the chance for spontaneity and serendipity than discipline ruins the opportunity for genuine self-expression in sports, acting, or the tea ceremony.
Phil Cousineau
I thought I’d be the first to introduce herbal tea to Patna. White tea, ginger tea, rooibos, camomile. No one touched it. On subsequent visits, I’d find the packets decorating the shelves in my parents’ dining room.
Amitava Kumar
Drinking a cup of green tea, I stopped the war.
Paul Reps
‘Johnny Tremain,’ Paul Revere’s Ride, today’s Tea Partiers – you have to tune all that out to get at the real story.
Nathaniel Philbrick
I try to appreciate the simple things. I’ve just been camping with my son and I enjoyed that just as much if not more than a holiday in a posh hotel. I like making a cup of tea and bacon sarnie in the morning.
Bill Bailey
Writing is a job, a talent, but it’s also the place to go in your head. It is the imaginary friend you drink your tea with in the afternoon.
Ann Patchett
Republicans are scared of the NRA. They’re scared of the Tea Party.
Seth Moulton
As an adolescent, I went to charm school, where I learned to pour tea and relate to boys, which, as I recall, meant giving them the pickle jar to unscrew, whether it was too hard for me or not.
Sue Monk Kidd
While we got hotter and thirstier as the heat beat down on us. The somebody would call in a voice full of elation
Arthur Godfrey
A throat-coating tea with some honey is very soothing for my throat, so I always travel with that.
Michael Buffer
Tea-making is a ritual that, like the drink itself, warms the heart somehow.
James Norwood Pratt
The great achievement of Zen Buddhism, and all of its cultural expressions in painting or the tea ceremony or rock gardens, is a rejection of earlier Buddhist ideas which were dependent
upon narrative – all the mythological creatures that populate the Buddhist galaxy. Zen insisted on the real located in nature.
Diego Cortez
Britain is no longer totally a white place where people ride horses, wear long frocks, and drink tea. The national dish is no longer fish and chips, it’s curry.
Marianne Jean-Baptiste
Always remember that, nine times out of ten, you probably aren’t having a full-on nervous breakdown – you just need a cup of tea and a biscuit. You’d be amazed how easily and repeatedly you can confuse the two. Get a big biscuit tin.
Caitlin Moran
Tea Party has now cost the Republicans 5 senate seats. My next donation is going to them.
Bill Maher
I don’t like soccer. I think it makes you soft. And by the way, you telling me it’s the biggest whatever in the World, look, they drink tea everywhere too; they’re pussies, you understand? I want some coffee.
Adam Carolla
Tea is quiet and it takes a quiet palate to appreciate something that calls so little attention to itself.
James Norwood Pratt
Voters did say ‘repeal health care’, they did say ‘reduce the size of government.’ But not a single one of them from the tea party or anywhere said ‘give tax breaks to the wealthiest.’
Chuck Schumer
Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book.
Bill Watterson
I have long said there are three distinct groups under the GOP’s tent: theological warriors, who want to impose their social views on the rest of society; Tea Party zealots, who say with a straight face that they want the government to get out of their Medicare; and remnants of the pro-business moderates.
Eliot Spitzer
You know, the Tea Party is a – first of all, it is a significant movement, and I think the media and some pundits have tried to write it off as a bunch of cranks or something. But, in fact, it’s really a very legitimate and fairly significant swath of voters out there.
Mark McKinnon
Working in the tea fields under a beautiful sunshine is the dream of all the miners.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I’m a tidy sort of bloke. I don’t like chaos. I kept records in the record rack, tea in the tea caddy, and pot in the pot box.
George Harrison
We all sat there laughing and sipping tea peacefully, an infidel and representatives from three warring sects of Islam. And I thought if we can get along this well, we can accomplish anything. The British policy was ‘divide and conquer.’ But I say ‘unite and conquer.
Greg Mortenson
The Tea Party has an important voice in the country and now they have a voice in the U.S. Senate.
Mike Lee
Those who say there’s nothing like a nice cup of tea for calming the nerves never had *real* tea. It’s like a syringe of adrenaline straight to the heart!
Cheshire Cat
I like writing books. I’d rather be at home with my wife. I can write, take a break, come out, have a glass of tea, give my wife a kiss, and go back in and write some more. It’s not so bad. I am really lucky.
Gene Wilder
I think the company that has the clearest set of values is Amazon. That company knows what it is. It may be that it’s not your cup of tea, but every single person at that company knows what the Amazon values are.
Glenn Kelman
Unfortunately, the Republican leadership in the House right now seems to have been strangled by the tea party.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
People who mock rap and say, “I don’t like it,” they should go and check out Kanye [West] in the studio rapping, or Marshall, Eminem, when he’s in the studio. It’s a phenomenon. Don’t knock it until you’ve seen it. It may not be your cup of tea, but don’t ridicule it.
Elton John
I’m not everybody’s cup of tea. But sometimes criticism can be hurtful. Be respectful. I’m a good piano player, I can sing well, I write good songs. If you don’t like it, fair enough. But give me a break.
Elton John
I would rise, monk-like, at 6 A.M., speak to no one, make tea, and go immediately to my desk from which I didn’t move until frills appeared around the edges of my eyes or I heard the sound of a wine bottle being uncorked. It would give the wrong impression to describe these as Writing Days.
Howard Jacobson
I did B com but realised that it was not my cup of tea. I was always fascinated by animation, and after I completed my course, I wanted to go abroad and pursue it. I used to sketch a lot and was rather serious about it. But all this was until I joined films.
Emraan Hashmi
The Tea Party doesn’t like politicians.
Jim DeMint
I have an amazing 1930s dress I picked up in Toronto at Cabaret on Queen West. It’s a red knee-length tea dress, and it’s absolutely beautiful. It makes me happy every time I put it on.
Lindy Booth
When Mats came in the evenings, they would drink tea in the kitchen while reading their books and talking about them. If Katri came in, they were quiet and waited for her to leave. The back door would close, and Katri would have gone. “Does your sister read our books?” Anna wanted to know. “No. She reads literature.
Tove Jansson
But I think the – what the tea party movement demonstrates, and I think the, the, the enthusiasm that we’re seeing from independents and Republicans, is that if Washington isn’t going to change itself, then we’re going to change Washington. And I think that’s what we’re seeing.
John Cornyn
My thing that I’m addicted to is cheese tea.
Jonathan Cheban
I am going to have a cup of tea, like any good Englishman.
Brian Jones
Modi winning or not winning is not important. I can go home tomorrow & open a tea stall but the nation must not suffer.
Narendra Modi
The only decisions I’m making at the moment are whether I have tea, coffee, toast or cornflakes in the morning.
Sam Allardyce
People ask me if I’m the father of the Tea Party movement… I was the spark… that started it.
Rick Santelli
Radical self-care is quantum, and radiates out into the atmosphere, like a little fresh air. It is a huge gift to the world. When people respond by saying, “Well, isn’t she full of herself,” smile obliquely, like Mona Lisa, and make both of you a nice cup of tea.
Anne Lamott
No man would ever use both hands to hold a cup of tea, unless he was one day’s march from the South Pole, with one chum dead in the snow, dogs all eaten and six fingers about to drop off. And even then he would look around the empty tent to check, in case anybody thought it was girly.
Allison Pearson
Cake and tea or death?
Eddie Izzard
It’s good to have poems that begin with tea and end with God.
Robert Bly
Really, the one thing that actually works – you know, state-run communism may not be your cup of tea, but [China’s] government works.
Jeffrey R. Immelt
At times, for sure, I do love a party. However, I do love going back to my room and putting on ‘Only Fools And Horses’ and having a cup of tea.
Jonas Blue
I can’t live without my cup of tea. When I was a judge on ‘America’s Next Top Model,’ they had to put me in a hotel where I had my own kitchen, because they can’t make tea in America. I was happy then because I could make my own.
My tea is nearly ready and the sun has left the sky;
It’s time to take the window to see Leerie going by;
For every night at tea-time and before you take your seat,
With lantern and with ladder he comes posting up the street.
Robert Louis Stevenson
I went to Salt Lake City and the Mormons tried to convert me, but when I found they forbade tea and tobacco I thought it was no religion for me.
Bertrand Russell
Life is a cup of tea; the more heartily we drink the sooner we reach the dregs.
James M. Barrie
Who’s the big government guy? These labels are nonsense. And the Tea Party, if you want to call them working class, you know, a working-class insurgency from below, they are a mass of contradictions; they don’t have a single consistent viewpoint; but part of their impulse is to be wary of government.
Bill Ayers
I didn’t DJ at Liverpool’s Ruby Sky nightclub but a couple of newspapers said how great my DJ set was, and how I’ve straightened up, which is true, and how I was drinking tea. But I wasn’t there!
Shaun Ryder
The Tea Party movement went off on a more extreme agenda that I did not support at all, and was very frustrated by it, to the point that not only did I change parties, I decided to do something about it and run for Congress.
Patrick Murphy
Do you have any coffee? (Talon) Ew! No, that stuff will kill you. I have herbal teas, though. (Sunshine) Herbal teas? That’s mulch, not a beverage. (Talon)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Southerners take no issue with absurdity. We don’t pretend the world is logical or fair. If there were a signature regional gesture it would be a shrug. For us, crazy happens. Better to sit back, enjoy the show, and drink the tea
Allison Glock
I was fairly solitary. I didn’t like structured learning. People didn’t seem to be my cup of tea.
Dan Farmer
My mum has a cupboard in her house, and you have to fight an avalanche of tea whenever you open it. I go through eight teas a day because I like having something in my hands when I’m working, and it stops me going for the cookie jar.
Samara Weaving
I live by green tea with lemon and honey.
Cheryl Burke
My political views have since I was a kid someway or another reflected the concerns of Tea Party movement.
Mike Lee
The Tea Party grew out of indignation over the Wall Street bailout – an indignation shared by the vast majority of Americans. But the Tea Party ended up directing its ire at government rather than at big business and Wall Street.
Robert Reich
Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors.
Alice Walker
I’d love to have tea and scones with the Queen; she’s my idol.
Agyness Deyn
One of those poor fellows that had become a Christian was badgered by his companions; and one of them said, “How do you know that Jesus Christ has forgiven your sins? ” The man turned at once and said, “How do you know when you have got sugar in your tea?
John Bartholomew Gough
Sleep and hydration are the very best things you can do for your skin. You want to drink water and green tea throughout the day and get as much sleep as you possible can.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
We must stop the Tea Party before the United States Senate falls into the hands of extremists and ideologues who leave no room for reason or compromise, who don’t recognize common ground even when they’re standing on it.
Harry Reid
The tea ceremony requires years of training and practice … yet the whole of this art, as to its detail, signifies no more than the making and serving of a cup of tea. The supremely important matter is that the act be performed in the most perfect, most polite, most graceful, most charming manner possible.
Lafcadio Hearn
Humans needed water or they would die, but dirty water killed as surely as thirst. You had to boil it before you drank it. This culture around tea was a way of tiptoeing along the knife edge between those two ways of dying.
Neal Stephenson
The food I had as a child was not complicated, but by heck it was tasty. My Nanna’s cauliflower cheese was awesome, her caramel slice wonderful and I am still searching for a recipe to make her apple tea cake.
John Torode
I’m not everybody’s cup of tea. But sometimes criticism can be hurtful. Be respectful I’m a good piano player, I can sing well, I write good songs. If you don’t like it, fair enough. But give me a break.
Elton John
I liken myself to a little girl having a tea party at the house all of the time. I actually dress up more in my home than I do walking down the street just because it is so much fun to play dress up.
Blake Lively
Tea? Good God, no. It’s mud. How the British ever built an empire drinking the filthy stuff is beyond me. And if we carry on drinking it, I’ve no doubt that the empire won’t last much longer. No, a civilized person drinks coffee.
Charlie Higson
Another tea-time, another day older.
Ian Anderson
It is not an overstatement to say that Obamacare was the single most important catalyst leading to the tea party movement.
David Limbaugh
A cup of tea is a cup of peace.
Ken Cohen
Come little cottage girl, you seem to want my cup of tea; and will you take a little cream? Now tell the truth to me!
Barry Pain
In Mexico we have a trick – add a crystal of salt to the kettle and the tea tastes better, almost English. But after four pots, your kettle’s broken.
Gael Garcia Bernal
Well that was the silliest tea party I ever went to! I am never going back there again!
Lewis Carroll
Life is like a cup of tea, the sugar is all at the bottom!
Julia Ward Howe
As the Republicans run to the crazy Tea Party right, they leave behind the huge mass of genuinely moderate and independent Americans that make up the majority of voters. The ones that used to consider themselves now-extinct moderate Republicans. They’re up for grabs. And the Democrats have to grab them!
Jennifer Granholm
You must be completely awake in the present to enjoy the tea.
Nhat Hanh
