My new favourite quote (found while trying to find the former because I couldn't remember who said it:
“There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work.
And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night.
There are those who do both, they drink tea.”
― Gary Snyder

This strikes me as fairly accurate!!

 一碗喉吻潤,

 二碗破孤悶,

 三碗搜枯腸,

惟有文字五千卷,

 四碗發輕汗,

 平生不平事盡向毛孔散,

五碗肌骨清,

 六碗通仙靈,

七碗吃不得也,

唯覺兩腋習習清風生。

蓬萊山﹐在何處,玉川子乘此清風欲歸去。

七碗诗 卢仝(唐. 790~835)
