Famous quotes containing the words vapour and/or water:

    O curse of marriage,
    That we can call these delicate creatures ours
    And not their appetites! I had rather be a toad,
    And live upon the vapour of a dungeon
    Than keep a corner in the thing I love
    For others’ uses.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Iron which is not whetted will grow rusty; water which does not flow will become stagnant.
    Chinese proverb.
