Okakura Kakuzo Quotations

"The tea ceremony is more than an idealization of the form of drinking — it is a religion of the art of life." - Okakura Kakuzo

The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings. - Okakura Kakuzo

"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 of things." - Okakura Kakuzo, Book of Tea (1906)

"A wave of rare incense is wafted from the tea-room; it is the summons which bids the guests to enter. One by one they advance and take their places. In the tokonoma hangs a kakemono—a wonderful writing by an ancient monk dealing with the evanescence of all earthly things. The singing kettle. . . sounds like some cicada pouring forth his woes to departing summer." - Okakura Kakuzo, Book of Tea (1906), Describing the last Cha-no-yu by Rikiu, a great tea master

Tea...is a religion of the art of life. - Okakura Kakuzo
