Note that German doesn't use apostrophes when indicating possession or belonging.
Considering that Germans tend to be stressed out a good deal of the time, the German language has a surprising number of expressions to talk about relaxation. Maybe that's the point. One of my favorite: "Die Seele baumeln lassen", which literally means "to let the soul dangle."
"Fließendes Wasser" can mean "flowing" as well as "running water".
"Ich spreche fließend Deutsch" translates as "I speak German fluently."
"Kein" or "keine" is used to negate nouns. As in: "kein Wasser" = "no water", "keine Autos"="no cars".
"Stilles Wasser" means both "still water" and "non-carbonated water."
