John F. Kerry - American Statesman and US Navy Veteran

"If we don't preserve the oceans from nitrate runoff and plastic and chemicals, and if we don't preserve it from acidification, and if we don't preserve it from grotesque overfishing - too much money chasing too few fish - we're going to have the most massive ecosystem on the planet in peril."

Benjamin Franklin - American Author, Innovator, Statesman

"When the well runs dry, we will know the value of water."

Audrey Hepburn - Actor, UN Spokesperson

"Water is life and clean water means health."

Wangari Maathai - Kenyan Environmentalist and 2004 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

"When resources are degraded, we start competing for them, whether it is at the local level in Kenya, where we had tribal clashes over land and water, or at the global level, where we are fighting over water, oil, and minerals. So one way to promote peace is to promote sustainable management and equitable distribution of resources."
