"Water—the mighty, the pure, the beautiful, the unfathomable—where is thy element so glorious as it is in thine own domain, the deep seas? What an infinity of power is in the far Atlantic, the boundary of two separate worlds, apart like those of memory and of hope!"
― Letitia Elizabeth Landon
"Water is patient, Adelaide. Water just waits. Wears down the cliff tops, the mountains. The whole of the world. Water always wins."
― The Doctor (The Waters of Mars)
"There is nothing softer and weaker than water,
And yet there is nothing better for attacking hard and strong things.
For this reason there is no substitute for it."
― Lao Tzu (Tao Te Ching, Ch. 78)
"Water is the element of change."
― Iroh (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
"Not fire, four arms. Don't ever forget, I'm a tall glass of water."
