Collective motions in liquid water are investigated by examining potential surfaces of an assembly of water molecules in its liquid state. It is found that coarse-graining of the quenched structures and low temperature dynamics provide information on their hierarchal structures. The distribution of the potential energy minimum structures in configuration space is examined is detail and is compared with those of methanol. The strong and fragile nature of liquid water is discussed.
