„The real wealth of the Nation lies in the resources of the earth — soil, water, forests, minerals, and wildlife.“

Letter to the editor, Washington Post (1953); quoted in Lost Woods: The Discovered Writing of Rachel Carson (1999) edited by Linda Lear, p. 99

„My first vision of earth was water veiled.“

—  Anaïs Nin, House of Incest
Context: My first vision of earth was water veiled. I am of the race of men and women who see all things through this curtain of sea and my eyes are the color of water.
