Quotable Friday, on Saturday


Heather, at Orange Blossom Goddess, does "Quotable Friday" posts. I'm one day late.



Herman Melville:
"Tea: a decoction that lightly floats the spirit for a while and at least lands it in a dry place."

(Hiss.........One more reason NEVER to read Moby-Dick!)

Tea is wonderful!

But do read Moby Dick sometime -- it's hilarious. I know we never think of Melville as a comic writer, but there are great heaping chunks of MB that really are laugh out loud funny.
