Water Scarcity Quotes

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

How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on.

Antoine De Saint-Exupery

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

Wystan Hugh Auden

African Proverb

When you drink the water, remember the spring.

Chinese Proverb

African Proverb

Beauty is a form of genius - is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon.

Oscar Wilde

I do not find the supposed scientific consensus among my colleagues. Curiously, it is a feature of man-made global warming that every fact confirms it: rising temperatures or decreasing temperatures. No matter what the weather, some model of global warming offers a watertight explanation.

Javier Cuadros

Winds and waters keep A hush more dead than any sleep.

William Allingham

Water is the lifeblood of our bodies, our economy, our nation and our well-being.

Stephen Johnson

Water, taken in moderation, cannot hurt anybody.

Mark Twain

The Waters are Nature's storehouse in which she locks up her wonders.

Isaac Waltonn

The sound of water says what I think.

Chuang Tzu

The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time.
