Between earth

Between earth and earth's atmosphere, the amount of water remains constant; there is never a drop more, never a drop less. This is a story of circular infinity, of a planet birthing itself.

~Linda Hogan


Water, thou hast no taste, no color, no odor; canst not be defined, art relished while ever mysterious. Not necessary to life, but rather life itself, thou fillest us with a gratification that exceeds the delight of the senses.

~Antoine De Saint-Exupery

If you gave me

If you gave me several million years, there would be nothing that did not grow in beauty if it were surrounded by water.

~Jan Erik Vold

All the water

All the water that will ever be is, right now.

~National Geographic, October 1993


Life originated in the sea, and about eighty percent of it is still there.

~Isaac Asimov


Water is the best of all things.



When the well's dry, we know the worth of water.

~Ben Franklin

There is

There is no small pleasure in water.


In every glass

In every glass of water we drink, some of the water has already passed through fishes, trees, bacteria, worms in the soil, and many other organisms, including people.

~Elliot A Norse


If there is magic on this plant, it is contained in water.

~ Loran Eisely

Water is

Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing, that makes water and nobody knows what that is.

~D H Lawrence


Water is the King of Food

~ Nigerian proverb

There is

There is an Indian belief that everyone is in a house of four rooms: A physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not complete.

~Rumer Godden

For all

For all my good intentions, there are days when things go wrong or I fall into old habits. When things are not going well, when I'm grumpy or mad, I'll realize that I've not been paying attention to my soul and I've not been following my best routine.

Only those people

Only those people that have directly experienced the wetlands that line the shore...can appreciate their mystic qualities. The beauty of rising mists at dusk, the ebb and flow of the tides, the merging of fresh and salt waters, the turmoil of wind and rain.

~Governor's Task Force On Marine And Coastal Affairs, Delaware: Wetlands, 1972

If you could

If you could tomorrow morning make water clean in the world, you would have done, in one fell swoop, the best thing you could have done for improving human health by improving environmental quality.
