I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man. ~ Henry David Thoreau
  • It may be belived that many are ignorant of the taste of water.
    • -Westminster- Review
  • Somewhere, behind space and time,
    Is wetter water, slimier slime.
    • Rupert Brooke
  • His answer trickled through my head
    Like water through a sieve.
    • Lewis Carroll
  • Water, taken in moderation, cannot hurt anybody.
    • Mark Twain
  • I have never seen a river that I could not love. Moving water…has a fascinating vitality. It has power and grace and associations. It has a thousand colors and a thousand shapes, yet it follows laws so definite that the tiniest stream is an exact replica of a great river.
  • Rivers are roads which move, and which carry us whither we desire to go.
  • The best, like water,
Benefit all and do not compete.
They dwell in lowly spots that everyone else scorns.
Putting others before themselves,
They find themselves in the foremost place
And come very near to the Tao.
In their dwelling, they love the earth;
In their heart, they love what is deep;
In personal relationships, they love kindness;
In their words, they love truth.
In the world, they love peace.
In personal affairs, they love what is right.
In action, they love choosing the right time.
It is because they do not compete with others
That they are beyond the reproach of the world.
