I have a deep and profound respect for the ways and beliefs of
my Native American ancestors. The following is one my favorite quotes;
attributed to being the last words of Crowfoot, a Blackfoot Warrior.
~ What is Life? ~
"A little while and I will be gone from among you," he said. "Whither,
I cannot tell. From nowhere we came; into nowhere we go. What is
life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath
of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs
across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."

Blackfoot Warrior and Orator, 1890
