"The beauty of the trees,
the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass
speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain,
the thunder of the sky,
the rhythm of the sea
speaks to me.
The faintness of the stars,
the freshness of the morning dew drops
on the the flowers
speaks to me.
The strength of the fire,
the taste of salmon,
the trail of the sun,
and the life that never goes away,
they speak to me,

and my heart soars."

~ Chief Dan George
