May 22, 2012: Meditations on the Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo #2

May 22, 2012

“…when we consider how small, after all, the cup of human enjoyment is, how soon overflowed with tears, how easily drained to the dregs in our quenchless thirst for infinity..meanwhile let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness if things.”

“The Book of Tea” by Okakura Kakuzo in the chapter, “The Cup of Humanity”
