Copying a list of files

I'm trying to achieve the following.

Copy system configuration files to a directory on my 
(/home/user/configuration) home drive.

I've made a text file with the files I want to copy, one file on each row.

The command:

rsync -tv --files-from="my list of files" /home/user/configuration/

does not work and I'm not getting any wiser from reading the man page.

Will someone help me get this right?

Thank you :-)
