In the film Dune, certain characters recite this mantra that goes:

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion,
It is by the juice of Sappho the thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire
stains, the stains become a warning,
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

Someone wrote this parody about coffee:

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion,
It is by the beans of Java the thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire
shaking, the shaking becomes a warning,
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
