It is wondered if anyone can write “everything” about water. If so, it would probably come down to pages and pages of information. Anyway, this is a collection of some data that could possibly serve as the most important points about it, so lets see how it goes and how it is received.
Firstly it was interesting to find the definition of the word “water” and it origin.
Def: A colorless, transparent, odorless, tasteless liquid that forms the seas, lakes, rivers and rain. and is the basis of the fluids of living organisms.
Origin: Apparently the first known origin was in Sanskrit (the ancient language of India) referring to water as “a living force”.
Water has been the inspiration in the arts throughout the ages; writers, poets. philosophers, explorers, painters. Many, many words and images have been portrayed on the subject.
“We never know the worth of water till the well is dry”. Thomas Fuller (1608 – 1661 English Historian).
“How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is clearly Ocean”. Arthur C. Clarke (1917 – 2008 British Science Fiction writer).
“Buoyed by water, he can fly in any direction – up, down, sideways – by merely flipping his hand. Under water, man becomes an archangel”.
Jacques Cousteau (1910 – 1997) French Author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water.
“Pure water is the world's first and foremost medicine. “Slovakian Proverb”.
“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of the oceans; in one aspect of You are found all the aspects of existence”.
Kahil Gibran (1883 – 1931 Lebanese/American Author).
Don't we all look at water in one form or another every day. After all clouds, so often in the sky, are a visible mass of condensed water vapor floating in the atmosphere, and as someone reported “typically high above the ground”.
We make use of water in many ways, bathing, washing clothes, washing dishes, cleaning the sink top, dabbing a hot face with a cold cloth wet with water, feeding our plants, watering the lawn, enjoying swimming in the pools, ponds and oceans, using electricity generated by the help of water to lighten our darkness and make many implements work. Even our cars need water!
In other words we really can't do without it. It is said that the human body is made up of a large percentage of water, apparently well above 50% and up to as much as 75%, differing because of gender, age, wellness and illness.
However one thing we all seem to know. Without water we thirst. It has been found that the human body is more healthy from a regular daily intake of water, and that it works better with smaller and regular amounts throughout the day. Of course, much is written about the health of a body with regard to water but one thing seems to be certain it is always needed.
In many instances it has been found that there are lesser aches and pains in the human body with a regular inflow of good clean water throughout the day and that we can lead happier healthier lives because of that.
Maybe water can be summed up in one simple quote about simple things.
“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word; freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope”.
Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965 British Politician).
Maybe the word that depicts that here is “water”. The living force.
