The importance of water flow becomes clear in our language and sayings.

A drop in the bucket

A flood of tears

Blood is thicker than water

Break the ice

Crying buckets

Don’t change the horses in mid stream.

Feeling swamped

Get your feet wet

Having a ripple effect

It’s all water under the bridge

Jump in with both feet

Like water off a duck’s back

Make a big splash

One hand washes the other.

Raining cats and dogs

Sink or swim

Somebody is all wet

Something smells fishy

Still waters run deep

The well’s run dry

Took hook, line, and sinker

Treading water

Troubled waters

Wash my hands of the whole thing

Watered down

Wet behind the ears

Wet your whistle

When it rains it pours
