Wednesday Vignette: Take Care of Our Heart


“People ask: Why should I care about the ocean?

Because the ocean is the cornerstone

of earth’s life support system,

it shapes climate and weather.

It holds most of life on earth; 97% of earth’s water is there.

It’s the blue heart of the planet —

we should take care of our heart.

It’s what makes life possible for us.

We still have a really good chance

to make things better than they are.

They won’t get better unless we take the action

and inspire others to do the same thing.

No one is without power.

Everybody has the capacity to do something.”


Sylvia A. Earle



“There is such solace in the mere sight of water.

It clothes us delicately in its blowing salt and scent,

gossamer items that medicate the poor soul”


Sebastian Barry



“What begins at the water shall end there,

and what ends there shall once more begin.”


Doug Dorst



“Water records information,

and while circulating throughout the earth

distributes information.

This water sent from the universe

is full of the information of life…”


Masaru Emoto



“No one can know the infinite importance

of a tiny drop of water better than a thirsty bird

or a little ant or a man of desert!”


Mehmet Murat ildan



“To be fully alive

is to have an aesthetic perception of life

because a major part of the world’s goodness

lies in its often unspeakable beauty.”


Yukitaka Yamamoto
