One thing to remember is to talk to the animals. If you do, they will talk back to you. But if you don't talk to the animals, they won't talk back to you, then you won't understand, and when you don't understand you will fear, and when you fear you will destroy the animals, and if you destroy the animals, you will destroy yourself.
- Chief Dan George, Tsleil-Waututh (1899 - 1981)
We can learn much from nature…all the things around us…if we only pay attention and care enough to listen. If we take care of things, things will take care of us. If we are foolish, our fate will be the sand that blows in the winds of doom.
