Water

                                                           … not necessary to life, but rather life itself

  • Over one billion people lack safe water, and three billion lack sanitation; eighty per cent of infectious diseases are waterborne, killing millions of children each year. –World Bank Institute WATER POLICY REFORM PROGRAM – Nov. 1999

  • Anyone who can solve the problems of water will be worthy of two Nobel prizes – one for peace and one for science. John F. Kennedy

  • It is the duty of each government to ensure that its people get  this basic supply. New Delhi (India) Chief  minister Arvind Kejriwal, the man who kept his promise by supplying free water to Delhites.

    • (I personally would like to see this dream come true across the Indian sub-continent and across the continents thru the respective governments – VSK)

  • The water understands Civilization well,
    It wets my foot, but prettily, It chills my life, but wittily,
    It is not disconcerted, It is not broken-hearted,
    Well used, it decketh joy, Adorneth, doubleth joy,
    Ill used, it will destroy, In perfect time and measure,
    With a face of golden pleasure Elegantly destroy.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson, Water, 1883

  • High quality water is more than the dream of the conservationists, more than a political slogan; high quality water, in the right quantity at the right place at the right time, is essential to health, recreation, and economic growth. – Edmund S. Muskie, U.S. Senator, speech, 1 March 1966

  • Water has no taste, no color, no odor; it cannot be defined, art relished while ever mysterious. Not necessary to life, but rather life itself. It fills us with a gratification that exceeds the delight of the senses. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944), Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939

  • Water has become a highly precious resource. There are some places where a barrel of water costs more than a barrel of oil.  – Lloyd Axworthy, Foreign Minister of Canada (1999 – News Conference)

  • 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. – William C. Clark, speech, Racine, Wisconsin, April 1988

  • Water is a very good servant, but it is a cruel master. – C.G.D. Roberts, Adrift in America, 1891

  • The highest good is like water. Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive. It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao. – Excerpt from the Tao Te Ching, chapter 8

  • Thousands have lived without love, not one without water. – W.H. Auden

  • No water resources program is of greater long-range importance than our efforts to convert water from the world’s greatest and cheapest natural resources – our oceans – into water fit for our homes and industry. Such a breakthrough would end bitter struggles between neighbors, states and nations. – John F. Kennedy, at a dedication ceremony for a desalination plant in Freeport, Texas, June 21.

  • Water is the one substance from which the earth can conceal nothing; it sucks out its innermost secrets and brings them to our very lips. – Jean Giraudoux (1882-1944), The Madwomen of Chaillot, 1946

  • Water is sometimes sharp and sometimes strong, sometimes acid and sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet and sometimes thick or thin, sometimes it is seen bringing hurt or pestilence, sometime health-giving, sometimes poisonous. It suffers change into as many natures as are the different places through which it passes. And as the mirror changes with the colour of its subject, so it alters with the nature of the place, becoming noisome, laxative, astringent, sulfurous, salty, incarnadined, mournful, raging, angry, red, yellow, green, black, blue, greasy, fat or slim. Sometimes it starts a conflagration, sometimes it extinguishes one; is warm and is cold, carries away or sets down, hollows out or builds up, tears or establishes, fills or empties, raises itself or burrows down, speeds or is still; is the cause at times of life or death, or increase or privation, nourishes at times and at others does the contrary; at times has a tang, at times is without savor, sometimes submerging the valleys with great floods. In time and with water, everything changes. – Leonardo da Vinci

  • It’s very difficult to get people interested in water as a global or even regional issue, but if you bring it down to the kitchen sink, we all do get the general picture. – Diane Raines Ward, Water Wars: Drought, Flood, Folly, and the Politics of Thirst, 2002

  • In an age when man has forgotten his origins and is blind even to his most essential needs for survival, water along with other resources has become the victim of his indifference. – Rachel Carson

Water is “the liquid that descends from the clouds as rain, forms streams, lakes, and seas, and is a major constituent of all living matter and that when pure is an odorless, tasteless, very slightly compressible liquid oxide of hydrogen H2O which appears bluish in thick layers, freezes at zero degrees Celsius and boils at one-hundred degrees Celsius, has a maximum density at four degrees Celsius and a high specific heat, is feebly ionized to hydrogen and hydroxyl ions, and is a poor conductor of electricity and a good solvent.” – Merriam-Webster, Online Dictionary at http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/water.

‘This post is not about Politics/ Religion’
