‘Praised be my Lord for our sister Water, who is very serviceable unto us and humble and precious and clean.
St Francis of Assisi.
Wisdom, as you know,
flows down to us like water from the past
as part of our inheritance.
Do you know that every bottle
of water contains at least one molecule
of H2O that was drunk by Aristotle?
So every time we take a glass of water
we should think of past wisdom,
link the past to the present,
raise a toast to the future
