Words To Think About . . .

If there is any great secret of success in life, it lies in the ability to put yourself in the other person's place and to see things from his point of view - as well as your own.
The future must be seen in terms of what a person can do to contribute something, to make something better, to make it go where he believes with all his being it ought to go. Frederick R. Kappel
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." Mohandas Gandhi

Oh, Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds, and whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me, I am small and weak, I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things your have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice. Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people. Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock. I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - myself. Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes. So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my Spirit may come to you without shame.
