Water water everywhere but not a drop to drink

Posted by Zeal on October 23, 2000

I remember this phrase from a literary text I read in high school, but I do not remember the name or author.

Homer Simpson spoofed this phrase on the Simpsons when he was stuck on a raft with his boyscout son.. "Water water everywhere, so let's all have a drink!"

just thought i'd throw that factoid in..

if you literary geniuses can help, email me!
