On The Rocks Thomas Broadfoot III Art BySilent Studio 2018 "Water, thou hast no taste, no color, no odor; canst not be defined, art relished while ever mysterious. Not necessary to life, but rather life itself, thou fillest us with a gratification that exceeds the delight of the senses." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery "Water is the driving force of all nature." - Leonardo da Vinci "A river seems a magic thing. A magic, moving, living part of the very earth itself." - Laura Gilpin "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." - Luna Leopold On The Rocks To See all 50 images in this collection, go here. Art BySilent Studio "Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life." - John Updike "We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one." - Jacques Yves Cousteau "I have never seen a river that I could not love. Moving water... has a fascinating vitality. It has power and grace and associations. It has a thousand colors and a thousand shapes, yet it follows laws so definite that the tiniest streamlet is an exact replica of a great river." - "When the well is dry, we know the worth of water." - Benjamin Franklin "Children of a culture born in a water-rich environment, we have never really learned how important water is to us. We understand it, but we do not respect it." - William Ashworth On The Rocks Roderick Haig-Brown Art BySilent Studio "Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans." - "Don't you realize that the sea is the home of water? All water is off on a journey unless it's in the sea, and it's homesick, and bound to make its way home someday." - Zora Neale Hurston "Water is life's matter and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water." - Albert Szent-Gyorgyi On The Rocks Jacques Yves Cousteau Art BySilent Studio "A river is more than an amenity, it is a treasure." - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. "If you gave me several million years, there would be nothing that did not grow in beauty if it were surrounded by water." - Jan Erik Vold "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." - Rachel Carson "The River... It's my world, and I don't want any other. What it hasn't got is not worth having, and what it doesn't know is not worth knowing. Lord! the times we've had together!" - Kenneth Grahame On The Rocks Art BySilent Studio "Ocean: A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man - who has no gills." - Ambrose Bierce "Whiskey is for drinking; water is for fighting over." - Mark Twain "Water, water, everywhere, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink." - Samuel Taylor Coleridge On The Rocks Art BySilent Studio "Life is water, dancing to the tune of solids." - Albert Szent-Gyorgyi "The solution to our water problems is more rain." - Mark Twain "For many of us, water simply flows from a faucet, and we think little about it beyond this point of contact. We have lost a sense of respect for the wild river, for the complex workings of a wetland, for the intricate web of life that water supports." - Sandra Postel "Rain! whose soft architectural hands have power to cut stones, and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains." - Henry Ward Beecher "We think of our land and water and human resources not as static and sterile possessions but as life giving assets to be directed by wise provisions for future days." - Franklin D. Roosevelt "The face of the water, in time, became a wonderful book- a book that was a dead language to the uneducated passenger, but which told its mind to me without reserve, delivering its most cherished secrets as clearly as if it uttered them with a voice. And it was not a book to be read once and thrown aside, for it had a new story to tell every day." - Mark Twain On The Rocks Art BySilent Studio "Let the rain sing you a lullaby." - Langston Hughes "The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea." - Isak Dinesen "Man is a complex being: he makes deserts bloom - and lakes die." - Gil Scott-Heron "Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it." - Laozi "When you put your hand in a flowing stream, you touch the last that has gone before and the first of what is still to come." - Leonardo da Vinci On The Rocks Art BySilent Studio "Water, like religion and ideology, has the power to move millions of people. Since the very birth of human civilization, people have moved to settle close to it. People move when there is too little of it. People move when there is too much of it. People journey down it. People write, sing and dance about it. People fight over it. And all people, everywhere and every day, need it. - Mikhail Gorbachev "There is too little public recognition of how much we all depend upon farmers as stewards of our soil, water and wildlife resources." - John F. Kennedy "Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing, that makes it water and nobody knows what that is." - D. H. Lawrence On The Rocks Art BySilent Studio "Man despite his artistic pretensions, his sophistication, and his many accomplishments owes his existence to a six inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains." - Paul Harvey "If everybody on the planet today had the same standard of living as the average European or American, we would need three new planets. But we don't even have one new planet. We have this one, and with the way we're polluting it, the shrinking water resources, the climate change, the experimentation with plants... the outlook is grim." - Jane Goodall "Be praised, My Lord, through Sister Water; she is very useful, and humble, and precious, and pure." - Francis of Assisi On The Rocks Art BySilent Studio "A man from the west will fight over three things: water, women and gold, and usually in that order." - Barry Goldwater "The air, the water and the ground are free gifts to man and no one has the power to portion them out in parcels. Man must drink and breathe and walk and therefore each man has a right to his share of each." - James F. Cooper "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." - Mikhail Gorbachev On The Rocks Art BySilent Studio "If you are a do-it-yourself decorator, a home decorator, interior decorator, frame shop that's looking to sell prints with their frames, or print shop looking to sell unique prints.
