favorite lines of the day

If I pour your cup, that is friendship.
And if I add your milk, that's manners.
But if I stop there, claiming ignorance of taste,
That is tea.
But if I measure the sugar
to satisfy your expectant tongue
then that is love,
sitting untouched, and growing cold.
-- Cowboy Junkies, 'Cold Tea Blues'

Quoted in Sam's Sweet Tea and Cocoa.
