Relax with this tranquil scene, allow the gentle peaceful sounds of nature, lapping water and bird song sooth you.
In silence I stood by the waters edge, meditating on this beautiful scene before me. The calm water lapping by my feet, tranquil bird song, gentle to my ears, cool air filled with the scent of an autumn woodland. As I watched, light gusts of wind rippled the waters surface momentarily until it returned to a mirror clear reflection once more.
I thought of how important this and all water is to me and every living organism on this planet. I was reminded of a quote by Albert Szent-Gyorgvi, ‘Water is life’s matter and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water’ Two thirds of myself, and most of every living creature and plant and the Earths surface is water.
We insist on destroying water where ever it is, we leave no place sacred, we dump waste, toxins and chemicals into our rivers, lakes and seas. We don’t stop there, we destroy the water table under our land with the same toxins and chemicals, the water within our own bodies isn’t spared either, our foods and drinks are filled with additives, chemicals and toxins. We feed our food, animal and vegetable with these toxic cocktails.
What will it take before we put the well-being of all that is around us as a priority before profit. As Thomas Fuller put it, ‘We will never know the worth of water till the well is dry.’
Here are a few quotes which remind us of how essential water is to our survival.
Water is the lifeblood of our bodies, our economy, our nation and our well-being
To understand water is to understand the cosmos, the marvels of nature, and life itself
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
We never know the worth of water till the well is dry
Water its living strength first shows, When obstacles its course oppose
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A river is more than an amenity, it is a treasure
Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes
A nation that fails to plan intelligently for the development and protection of its precious waters will be condemned to wither because of its shortsightedness. The hard lessons of history are clear, written on the deserted sands and ruins of once proud civilizations
Lyndon B. Johnson
We must treat water as if it were the most precious thing in the world, the most valuable natural resource. Be economical with water! Don’t waste it! We still have time to do something about this problem before it is too late
Civilization has been a permanent dialogue between human beings and water
I understood when I was just a child that without water, everything dies. I didn’t understand until much later that no one “owns” water. It might rise on your property, but it just passes through. You can use it, and abuse it, but it is not yours to own. It is part of the global commons, not “property” but part of our life support system
Marq de Villiers
All the water that will ever be is, right now
Water is the most critical resource issue of our lifetime and our children’s lifetime. The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land
All the water that will ever be is, right now.
Water is life’s matter and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water
By means of water, we give life to everything.
Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans
