Water!

“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”

— Loren Eiseley

waterdropHere’s the full quote:

“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water. . . . Its substance reaches everywhere: it touches the past and prepares the future; it moves under the poles and wanders thinly in the heights of air. It can assume forms of exquisite perfection in a snowflake, or strip the living to a single shining bone cast upon the sea.”

— Loren Eiseley (1907-77), The Immense Journey

American writer, anthropologist and “bone hunter” (in the then-isolated U.S. Southwest, in the 1920s, he dug up fossils for museums).
