Wisdom


Wisdom from those before me.

Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I’ll understand.

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.

Force, no matter how concealed, begets resistance.

The Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round….. The Sky is round, the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as   ours… Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.
