Water--the ace of elements.

Water dives from the clouds without parachute, wings or safety net. Water runs over the steepest precipice and blinks not a lash. Water is buried and rises again; water walks on fire and fire gets the blisters. Stylishly composed in any situation--solid, gas or liquid--speaking in penetrating dialects understood by all things--animal, vegetable or mineral-- water travels intrepidly through four dimensions, sustaining... destroying... creating...

 

--Tom Robbins, from the preface to Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
