"Some people think that water is for the delicate. It is a soft and graceful magic that takes agility of mind, body, and spirit. I like to remind those people that I could drown them in the middle of a desert if I wished. Usually they shut up pretty quick."

I wasn't really loving the original as much as I used to so I made some changes. Thanks to ~mdotts
