Coffee, the Sober Drink

"Coffee, the sober drink, the mighty nourishment of the brain, which unlike other spirits, heightens purity and lucidity; coffee, which clears the clouds of the imagination and their gloomy weight; which illuminates the reality of things suddenly with the flash of truth. "

-Jules Michelet, French Historian (1798-1874)
(quoted in A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage)
