Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing that makes water,
and nobody knows what that is.

–D. H. Lawrence

Water does not resist. Water flows.
When you plunge your hand into it,
all you feel is a caress. 
Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you.
But water always goes where it wants to go,

and nothing in the end can stand against it. 
Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone.
Remember that, my child.

Remember you are half water. 
If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it.
Water does.

—Margaret Atwood
