Quietly over tea

Here is a beautiful passage from the book, "My Country and My People" by Lin Yutang "In the years, they have had plenty of time to drink tea and look at life quietly over their teacups, and from the gossip over the teacups they have boiled life down to it's essence. They have had plenty of time to discuss...to ponder over their achievements and to review the successive change of the modes of art and life and to see their own in the light of the long past. This became the 'mirror' which reflects human experience for the benefit of the present and future." Thank you Mr. Yutang.
