Life was a glorious thing, for great contentment comes with the feeling of friendship and kinship with the living things about you."
Standing Bear, Lakota




"You ought to follow the example of the wolf. Even when he is surprised and runs for his life, he will pause to take one more look at you before he enters his final retreat. So you must take a second look at everything you see."
Ohiyesa, Santee Dakota




“All animals have power, because the Great Spirit dwells in all of them, even a tiny ant, a butterfly, a tree, a flower, a rock.”
Pete Catches, Lakota
