From a little book of quotations... October 21, 2005 3:30 AM

I have noticed in my life that all men have a liking for some special animal, tree, plant, or spot of earth. If men would pay more attention to these preferences and seek what is best to do in order to make themselves worthy of that toward which they are so attracted, they might have dreams which would purify their lives. Let a man decide upon his favourite animal and make a study of it, learning its innocent ways. Let him learn to understand its sounds and motions. The animals want to communicate with man, but Wakantanka does not intend they shall do so directly - man must do the greater part in securing an understanding. [ (Brave Buffalo (late 19th century) Teton Sioux Medicine man - Quoted in 'Native American Wisdom. (with) photographs by Edward S. Curtis.
