Native American Wisdom Quotes

February 8, 2008

What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
It is the little shadow which runs across
the grass and loses itself in the sunset.

Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator 1830 – 1890

Lakota Instructions for Living

Friend do it this way – that is,
whatever you do in life,
do the very best you can

with both your heart and mind.

And if you do it that way,
the Power Of The Universe
will come to your assistance,

if your heart and mind are in Unity.

When one sits in the Hoop Of The People,
one must be responsible because
All of Creation is related.
And the hurt of one is the hurt of all.
And the honor of one is the honor of all.

And whatever we do effects everything in the universe.

If you do it that way – that is,
if you truly join your heart and mind
as One – whatever you ask for,

that’s the Way It’s Going To Be.

May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears,

And, above all, may silence make you strong.
