30 Second Reflection: Tea and Wisdom with Mma Ramotswe
'In the old days Botswana people were rarely in a rush to get somewhere - why should they be? Nowadays people were always thinking about getting somewhere - they travelled around far more, rushing from here to there and back again. She would never let her life go that way; she would always take time to drink tea, to look at the sky and to talk. What else was there to do? Make money? Why? Did money bring any greater happiness than that furnished by a well made cup of redbush tea and a moment or two with a food friend? She thought not.'
- Mma Ramotswe in The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party by Alexander McCall Smith
