WHY WATER

"In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans."
Kahlil Gibran

"We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one."
Leonardo da Vinci

"I can tell the way of celestial bodies, but can say nothing of the movement of a small drop of water."
Galileo

"We'll never know the worth of water till the well goes dry."
Scottish proverb

"A little water clears us of this deed."
Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act 2, Scene 2

"Water, like religion and ideology, has the power to move millions of people. Since the very birth of human civilization, people have moved to settle close to it. People move when there is too little of it. People move when there is too much of it. People journey down it. People write, sing and dance about it. People fight over it. And all people, everywhere and everyday, need it."
Mikhail Gorbachev

"Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed."
Buddha

"Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong."  
Lao-Tzu
