water

A Quote by Bishop William Crosswell Doane on day, inferiority, superiority, and water

Stir the mixture well Lest it prove inferior, Then put half a drop Into Lake Superior. Every other day Take a drop in water, You'll be better soon Or at least you oughter.

A Quote by William Carlos Williams on water

Mothlike in mists, scintillant in the minute brilliance of cloudless days, with broad bellying sails they glide to the wind tossing green water from their sharp prows while over them the crew crawls.

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on day, heart, and water

I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;  While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,  I hear it in the deep heart's core.

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on ambition, balance, beginning, imitation, life, poetry, and water

I had still the ambition, formed in Sligo in my teens, of living in imitation of Thoreau on Innisfree, a little island in Lough Gill, and when walking through Fleet Street very homesick I heard a little tinkle of water and saw a fountain in a shop window which balanced a little ball upon its jet, and began to remember lake water. From the sudden remembrance came my poem Innisfree.

A Quote by Walter Dudley Cavert on communication, death, facts, friendship, impulses, life, promises, proof, understanding, and water

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond, he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation, which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.
