Chief Seattle, Leader of the Squamish Nation 1854 quote

To the great philosophers and care-takers, the good stewards of the land I am grateful. The deep thinkers give us words that are timeless and as it is Thanksgiving I chose to give thanks to them.  I'd like to share these words of wisdom.

"This we know, the Earth does not belong to Humanity, People belong to the Earth. This we know.
All things are connected.  What ever befalls the Earth, befalls the people of the Earth.  We did not weave the web of life, we are merely a part of it. What ever we do to the web, we do to ourselves."

Chief Seattle, leader of the Squamish Nation 1854.

Happy Thanksgiving.
