Speaking of water . . .

. . . here’s a view from six famous writers:

Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), British poet, in “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”

Water so clear you could
read a book through it.
Water so buoyant you could
float on your elbow.
- Anne Sexton (1928-1974), U.S. poet, “The Nude Swim.”

Water is a pioneer which the settler follows, taking advantage of its improvements.
- Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), U.S. philosopher, author, naturalist, from “The Allegash and East Branch” in The Maine Woods

What’s water but the generated soul?
- William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), Irish poet.

A little water clears us of this deed.
How easy is it then!
- William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet, Lady Macbeth, in Macbeth,

All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was.
- Toni Morrison (b. 1931), U.S. fiction writer and essayist, as quoted in Grace Notes by Rita Dove (1989).
