"Pity was meant to be a spur that drives joy to help misery. But it can be used the wrong way round. It can be used for a kind of blackmailing. Those who choose misery can hold joy up to ransom, by pity."

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”

We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills and winding streams ... as " wild ".
Only to the white man was nature a " wilderness ".

I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later.

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

How is it that one match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to start a campfire?

Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
