quotes to think about a little:

" The big Power gave each of us a song."- native american

" When a man does a piece of work which is admired by all we say it is wonderful; but when we see the changes of day and night, the sun, the moon and the stars in the sky, and the changing of the seasons upon the earth, with their ripening fruits, anyone must realize that it is the work of someone more powerful than man."- Chased-by-bears, Santee-Yanktonai Sioux (1843-1915)
