'it just becomes water flowing under a bridge'

Postby boccuzzi » Wed Mar 11, 2009 1:49 pm

I am sorry to be so vague but I am trying to trace what i suspect could be a rather inaccurate JK quote. " 'it just becomes water flowing under a bridge' or something like that" is what I have been given. It's a bit of problem - hardly a unique sentiment in this day and age. Does this ring bells with anyone? Any pointers appreciated. Thanks.

I don't recognise this as anything Keats wrote but perhaps whoever told you that was thinking of the inscription on Keats' headstone

"Here Lies One
Whose Name was writ in Water"

???

I agree with Saturn. Don't know any Keats quote like this. Besides, the statement is common stock and anybody could have said it. That's as helpful as I can be (for what it's worth). Peace.
