“Beauty is all about us, but how may are blind! They look at the wonder of this earth and seem to see nothing. People move hectically but give little thought to where they are going. They seek excitement ... as if they were lost and desperate.”

Pablo Casals

The nation has placed its faith in the precept that all laws should be inspired by actual needs here on earth as a basic fact of national life.

Mustafa Kemal Atatrk

Our planet, the Earth, is, as far as we know, unique in the universe. It contains life. Even in its most barren stretches, there are animals. Around the equator, where those two essentials for life, sunshine and moisture, are most abundant, great forests grow. And here plants and animals proliferate in such numbers that we still have not even named all the different species. Here, animals and plants, insects and birds, mammals and man live together in intimate and complex communities, each dependent on one another. Two thirds of the surface of this unique planet are covered by water, and it was here indeed that life began. From the oceans, it has spread even to the summits of the highest mountains as animals and plants have responded to the changing face of the Earth.

Sir David Frederick Attenborough

If we make a couple of discoveries here and there we need not believe things will go on like this for ever. Just as we hit water when we dig in the earth, so we discover the incomprehensible sooner or later.

G. C. (Georg Christoph) Lichtenberg

The distance between heaven and earth is no greater than one thought.

Mongolian Proverb

Your enjoyment of the world is never right, till every morning you awake in Heaven: see yourself in your Father's palace; and look upon the skies, the earth, and the air as celestial joys: having such a reverend esteem of all, as if you were among the angels.

Thomas Traherne

I believe we have a responsibility not only to our contemporaries but also to future generations a responsibility to preserve resources that belong to them as well as to us, and without which none of us can survive. That means we must do much more, and urgently, to prevent or slow down climate change. Everyday that we do nothing, or too little, imposes higher costs on our children and our childrens children. Of course, it reminds me of an African proverb the earth is not ours but something we hold in trust for future generations. I hope my generation will be worthy of that trust.

Kofi Atta Annan

Heaven would indeed be heaven if lovers were there permitted as much enjoyment as they had experienced on earth.

Giovanni Boccaccio

Earth laughs in flowers.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do not give in too much to feelings. A overly sensitive heart is an unhappy possession on this shaky earth.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Without laughter life on our planet would be intolerable. So important is laughter to us that humanity highly rewards members of one of the most unusual professions on earth, those who make a living by inducing laughter in others. This is very strange if you stop to think of it: that otherwise sane and responsible citizens should devote their professional energies to causing others to make sharp, explosive barking-like exhalations.

Stephen Valentine Patrick William Allen

And new Philosophy calls all in doubt, the element of fire is quite put out; the Sun is lost, and the earth, and no mans wit can well direct him where to look for it.

John Donne

Water flows from high in the mountains Water runs deep in the Earth Miraculously, water comes to us, And sustains all life.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Aquifer: a mysterious, magical and poorly defined area beneath the surface of the earth that either yields or withholds vast or lesser quantities of standing/flowing water, the quantity and/or quality of which is dependent on who is describing it or how much money may be at stake.

R. Radden

Nothing on earth is so weak and yielding as water, but for breaking down the firm and strong it has no equal.

Lao-Tsze

Water is the only substance on earth that is naturally present in three different forms - as a liquid, a solid (ice) and as a gas (water vapor)

Antoine

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 is the one substance from which the earth can conceal nothing; it sucks out its innermost secrets and brings them to our very lips.
