The Best Peaceful Waterfall Quotes

If you’ve ever stood next to a waterfall, you’ll know how peaceful it can get.

Granted, peacefulness is not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about waterfalls. We often relate them to power, strength, and the crashing of all this water some feet below can seem quite impressive.

peacefull waterfall quotes 3


  1. “We shall not cease from exploration
    And the end of all our exploring
    Will be to arrive where we started
    And know the place for the first time.
    Through the unknown, remembered gate
    When the last of earth left to discover
    Is that which was the beginning
    At the source of the longest river
    The voice of the hidden waterfall
    And the children in the apple-tree
    Not known, because not looked for
    But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
    Between two waves of the sea.” T.S. Eliot
  2. “Like a waterfall, wash over me.” Lil Wayne
