Water Power

[WTN-L World Tibet Network News. Published by The Canada Tibet Committee. Issue ID: 02/07/31; July 31, 2002.]

Times of India
July 31, 2002

Every human should have the idea of taking care of the environment, of nature, of water. So using too much or wasting water should have some kind of responsibility and with that, a sense of discipline.
H H the Dalai Lama

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

Let the most absent-minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries, set his feet a-going, and he will infallibly lead you to water, if water there be in all that region. Yes, as everyone knows, meditation and water are wedded forever.
Herman Melville, 'Moby Dick'

Water, like religion and ideology, has the power to move millions. Since the very birth of human civilisation, people have moved to settle close to it. People move when there is too little of it, when there is too much of it. People journey down it. People write, sing and dance about it. People fight over it. And all people, everywhere and every day, need it.
Mikhail Gorbachev

Fierce national competition over water resources has prompted fears that water issues contain the seeds of violent conflict.
Kofi Annan
