Native American Proverbs

If you visit my blog much you know that I am a collector and lover of quotes. Today I thought that I would share a few proverbs from Native Americans. Drink in their wisdom..

Our first teacher is our own heart.

A good chief gives, he does not take.

White men have too many chiefs.

There is no death, only a change of worlds.

We will be known forever by the tracks we leave.

Those that lie down with dogs, get up with fleas.

A brave man dies but once, a coward many times.

Life is not separate from death. It only looks that way.

They are not dead who live in the hearts they leave behind.

Don't be afraid to cry. It will free your mind of sorrowful thoughts.

Most of us do not look as handsome to others as we do to ourselves.

Poverty is a noose that strangles humility and breeds disrespect for God and man

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

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.
