Quote of the Day
When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
A single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong.
Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.
Let us form one body, one heart, and defend to the last warrior our country, our homes, our liberty, and the graves of our fathers.
Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.
When the legends die, the dreams end; there is no more greatness.
Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
From my tribe I take nothing, I am the maker of my own fortune.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
I have made myself what I am. And I would that I could make the red people as great as the conceptions of my own mind, when I think of the Great Spirit that rules over us all.
I am a Shawnee. My forefathers were warriors. Their son is a warrior. From them, I take my only existence.
Since my residence at Tippecanoe, we have endeavored to level all distinctions, to destroy village chiefs, by whom all mischiefs are done. It is they who sell the land to the Americans.
