water

A Quote by Alexander Pope on agreement, chaos, confusion, earth, order, variety, water, and world

Here hills and vales, the woodland and the plain Here earth and water seem to strive again, Not chaos-like together crushed and bruised, But, as the world, harmoniously confused: Where order in variety we see, And where, though all things differ, all agree.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)

A Quote by Albert Einstein on bitterness, effort, existence, life, love, nature, respect, and water

Of what significance is one's existence, one is basically unaware. What does a fish know about the water in which he swims all his life? The bitter and the sweet come from outside. The hard from within, from one's own efforts. For the most part I do what my own nature drives me to do. It is embarrassing to earn such respect and love for it.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

As the ocean giveth rise to springs, whose water return again into its bosom through the rivers, so runneth thy life force from the heart outwards, and so returneth into its place again

A Quote by Anna Letitia (Aikin) Barbauld on chaos, college, darkness, planning, and water

Forgotten rimes, and college themes, Worm-eaten plans, and embryo schemes; A mass of heterogeneous matter. A chaos dark, nor land nor water.

A Quote by Agatha Christie on fatherhood and water

I continued to do arithmetic with my father, passing proudly through fractions to decimals. I eventually arrived at the point where so many cows ate so much grass, and tanks filled with water in so many hours I found it quite enthralling.

Agatha Christie (1891 - 1976)
