Remember, when you donвЂ™t know what to do, it never hurts to play Scrabble. ItвЂ™s like reading the I Ching or tea leaves.

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.
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.
I have a lot of tea in the morning. I always have toast and peanut butter.
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.

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.
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.
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.

I tried to commit suicide by sticking my head in the oven, but there was a cake in it.

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.
A cup of tea would restore my normality.
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.

‘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.
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.

I regularly interact with officers over tea; it is part of my working style.
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.
There is something in the nature of tea that leads us into a world of quiet contemplation of life.
You ever dip your biscuit in your tea and it breaks. I swear now, you never get used to that.

I’ve never cooked. I can’t do much more in the kitchen than make a cup of tea and some toast.

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.
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.
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.
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.
In many respects, I guess I would say I was into Tea Party before there was a Tea Party.
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.
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.
Well, thatвЂ™s just a little hard, since I canвЂ™t even talk her into sparing your life, huh? You havenвЂ™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)
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.
I like to have my cup of green tea.
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.’
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!
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.
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.
I think the Tea Party has brought important issues to the table.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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?
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!
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.

I’m not the girl that sits at home on a Saturday night plaiting her girlfriend’s hair, drinking tea and watching romantic comedies.
The Tea Party has imparted political energy to common-sense American constitutionalism.
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.
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.
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.
I don’t like tea! Never have, never drunk it.

Where there’s tea there’s hope.
Harry found the [tea]… seemed to burn away a little of the fear fluttering in his chest.

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.
Let’s just say, the American school of suburban angst is not my cup of tea.
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.
As long as it is hot, wet and goes down the right way, its fine with me.
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.

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.
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.
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.
Perhaps it is while drinking tea that I most of all enjoy the sense of leisure.

I don’t think I’m capable of writing without caffeine. And most of the time, that caffeine comes from iced tea.
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 ].
Question your tea spoons.
Fine. Since the tea is not forthcoming, let’s have a philosophical conversation.

My mother always tried to keep a little bit of British culture in our family. We’d drink tea all the time!
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.
I accept I am not everyone’s cup of tea, but judge me over a period of time.
I understand that coffee and cigarettes are cool, fashionable and all that. But agree the tea with cookies still taste better.

Tea is one of the main stays of civilization in this country.

I wouldn’t go back and be 25 again for all the tea in China.
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.
If Japanese tea ‘stands,’ it acquires a coarse bitterness and an unwholesome astringency. Milk and sugar are not used.
Tea. I find that both settles the stomach and concentrates the mind. Wonderful drink, tea.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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?
I like a Blackpool breakfast, me – 20 ciggies and a pot of tea.

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.
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.
unfortunately, we’re all out of bitter evange at the moment, so it’s either tea or nothing
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.

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.

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.
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.
If there are no spots on a sugar cube then IвЂ™ve just put a dice in my tea.

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.
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.

A good cup of Earl Grey tea – you cant beat it.
If me and my friends are feeling decadent, we go for afternoon tea.

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.
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.

Tea is a huge part of my life.

Time for Tolerance,Equality, and Acceptance, It’s allways TEA time with my Friends.
In America we need members of the Latino community to come to the Tea Party movement and enrich the Tea Party.
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.
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.
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.

What I owe the Tea Party is to be the conservative voice they elected me to be.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Working in the tea fields under a beautiful sunshine is the dream of all the miners.

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.
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.
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.

The Tea Party doesn’t like politicians.
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.
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.

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.

I am going to have a cup of tea, like any good Englishman.

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, вЂњWell, isnвЂ™t she full of herself,вЂќ smile obliquely, like Mona Lisa, and make both of you a nice cup of tea.
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.

My tea is nearly ready and the sun has left the sky;

Who’s the big government guy? These labels are nonsense.

Do you have any coffee? (Talon) Ew! No, that stuff will kill you. I have herbal teas, though. (Sunshine) Herbal teas? ThatвЂ™s mulch, not a beverage. (Talon)
Southerners take no issue with absurdity. We donвЂ™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

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.
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.

Another tea-time, another day older.

The ones that used to consider themselves now-extinct moderate Republicans. They’re up for grabs. And the Democrats have to grab them!
You must be completely awake in the present to enjoy the tea.
