Water Scarcity Quotes

Fermented beverages have been preferred over water throughout the ages: they are safer, provide psychotropic effects, and are more nutritious.

It will talk as long as it wants, this rain. As long as it talks I am going to listen.

Thomas Merton

Wilderness is an anchor to windward. Knowing it is there, we can also know that we are still a rich nation, tending our resources as we should--not a people in despair searching every last nook and cranny of our land for a board of lumber, a barrel of oil, a blade of grass, or a tank of water.
