  • At the heart of our shared humanity is our thirst, which ensures that if we inhabit bodies of flesh and blood and bone, if we reside on this earth and bear our young and raise them to dream and to discover, whether we live in the shadows of the mountains or the vast sweeps of prairies, we crave, we seek, we need water.

    • Laura Michele Diener,
    • "Water and Our Shared Humanity," in The Catholic Worker ()
  • We owe our humanity to water; at our essence, we are all water.
