This is a compilation of thoughts and quotes that I have found or written recently, as well as many that I've collected throughout the years. Most thoughts are posted randomly, as I feel inspired. A listing of quotes can be found alphabetically (check the 2008 and 2009 archives listing), or by source.

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” – Proverbs 23:7

liquid life
falling from heaven
moisture nourishing earth

seeping, sinking
quenching thirsty roots
droplets soaking the ground

trickling, dripping
bubbling into a spring
forming a crystal-clear pool

glistening, sparkling
glass-smooth and glossy
swirling past the mossy green

flowing, gliding
into a babbling brook
gurgling over rocks and stones

splashing, sloshing
washing fallen leaves
down the mountain stream

falling, leaping
over broken cliffs
cascades spraying in the air

rolling, winding
wending its way
a mighty river finds the sea

buoying, tossing
fishing and sail boats
floating in the open bay

surging, crashing
the high tide comes in
forceful surf pounding shore

swimming, diving
a marine world thrives
in deep mystery called ocean

sailing, cruising
out over the deep blue
sandwiched in sea and sky

warming, evaporating
humid air rises
billowing into great clouds

blowing, moving
over land once again
a wet storm in the making

sprinkling, raining
showers transition
into a torrential downpour

misting, steaming
shimmering colors
of a promising rainbow

drinking, slurping
enjoying the taste
an icy-cold glass of lemonade

laughing, singing
dancing in the rain
a refreshed reason for living

cleansing, purifying
old life becomes new
the essence of life called water

Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it. - Lao Tsu

In the world there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong nothing can surpass it. - Lao Tsu
