Living in Stagnant Water

Stagnant water is the worst kind of water there is. Water in and of itself is a pure, life giving substance. However, when allowed to stagnate, starts to become filthy, transforms into a breeding ground for blood sucking mosquitos, and can even pass along diseases such as malaria.

Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind."

Everyone has the choice of living in either a puddle or a spring. I enjoy life in my spring. If you are happy in your puddle, that's fine with me. Just stop trying to splash me with your filth.
