“I like my coffee with cream and my literature with optimism”

"I like my coffee with cream and my literature with optimism” is a one-line coffee saying that has been printed on many images. American author Abigail Reynolds wrote in Pemberley by the Sea: A Modern Love Story, Pride and Prejudice Style (2008):

“He made no move to greet her, and she turned back to Ed as she set the book on table. ‘You know me too well, Ed. I like my coffee with cream and my literature with optimism.’ There were enough unhappy endings in real life.”
