“Oh Eeyore you are wet!” said Piglet feeling him. Eeyore shook himself and asked somebody to explain to Piglet what happened when you had been inside a river for quite a long time.” ― A.A. Mil, “Water continually dropping will wear hard rocks hollow.” - Plutarch, Gutta cavat lapidem- Ovid, splish splash, The wind it just whips her away And fills up her brigantine sails, wet diamonds, Will you leave it all behind Water Rushing through your mind, Your sky all hung with jewels
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.
