Precious Water Quotes

Francis Bacon

The most precious things in speech are pauses

Ralph Richardson

We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends, and living our lives

Maya Angelou

Pregnant women! They had that weird frisson, an aura of magic that combined awkwardly with an earthy sense of duty. Mundane, because they were nothing unique on the suburban streets; ethereal because their attention was ever somewhere else. Whatever you said was trivial. And they had that preciousness which they imposed wherever they went, compelling attention, constantly reminding you that they carried the future inside, its contours already drawn, but veiled, private, an inner secret.

Ruth Morgan

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The gift of life is so precious that we should feel an obligation to pay back the universe for the gift of being alive.

Martin Bormann

Life is like a rose . . . More exquisite and precious, When shared with others.

Jane Oechsle Lauer

Learn to relax. Your body is precious, as it houses your mind and spirit. Inner peace begins with a relaxed body.

Norman Vincent Peale

...when we finally know we are dying, and all other sentient beings are dying with us, we start to have a burning, almost heartbreaking sense of the fragility and preciousness of each moment and each being, and from this can grow a deep, clear, limitless compassion for all beings.
