Native American Quotes: A
All dreams spin out from the same web.

Be known by the tracks you leave.
Native American Quotes: C
Children are a gift from the heavens.
Native American Sayings: G
Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds and whose breath gives life to all in the world, hear me. I am small and I am weak and I need your strength and your wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and let my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunsets that you have created with me.
Make my hands respect the things that you have made and my ears sharp to hear your words and your voice.
Let me learn the lessons that you have hidden under every rock and leaf.
I seek strength not to be greater than my brother but to fight my greatest enemy... myself.
Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes, so that when my life fades as the fading sunset, my Spirit can come to you without shame.
Grown men can learn from very little children, for the hearts of the little children are pure. Therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss.
Native American Quotes: H
Help me always to speak the truth quietly, to listen with an open mind when others speak, and to remember the peace that may be found in silence.
Honor the sacred.
Honor the Earth, our Mother.
Honor all with whom we share the Earth.
Walk in balance and beauty.
Native American Sayings: I
I salute the Light within your eyes, where the whole Universe dwells.
If we wonder often, the gift of knowledge will come.
It is no longer good enough to cry peace, we must act peace, live peace and live in peace.
Native American Quotes: K
Keep the warmth of the sun in your heart.
Native American Quotes: L
Life is not separate from death. It only looks that way.
Life is the flash of firefly in the night.
It is the breath of the buffalo in the winter.
It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
Listen to the wind... It talks.
Listen to the silence... It speaks.
Listen to your heart... It knows.
Live strong as the mountains.
Looking behind, I am filled with gratitude.
Looking forward, I am filled with vision.
Looking upwards, I am filled with strength.
Looking within, I discover peace.
Native American Quotes: M
May the stars carry your sadness away.
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty.
May hope forever wipe away your tears.
And above all, may silence make you strong.
May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there.
May your moccasins make happy tracks in many snows,
and may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.
May your life be like a wild flower, growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day.
Native American Quotes: N
Now you will feel no rain
for each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold
for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no more loneliness
for each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons
but there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both
in your journey ahead and through the years.
May happiness be your companion
to the place where the river meets the sun.
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.
May the sun bring you new energy by day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries.
May the breeze blow new strength into your beings.
And all the days of your lives
may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty.
Treat yourself and each other with respect.
And remind yourselves often of what brought you together.
Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness
that your connection deserves.
When frustration, difficulty and fear assail your relationship,
as they threaten all relationships at one time or another,
remember to focus on what is right between you,
not only on the part that seems wrong.
In this way you can ride out the storms
when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives,
remembering that even if you lose sight of it for a moment
the sun is still there.
And if each of you takes responsibility
for the quality of your life together,
it will be marked with abundance and delight.
When evening falls there you will both be.
You'll take each other's hands and turn together to look at the road
you have traveled to reach this,
the hour of your happiness.
It stretches behind you even as the future lies ahead.
A long and winding road whose every turn means discovery.
Old hopes - new laughter - shared tears.
The adventure has just begun.
Paul & Emma (2002)
Native American Quotes: O
Our first teacher is our own heart.
Native American Quotes: S
Seek wisdom, not knowledge.
Knowledge is of the past.
Wisdom is of the future.
Native American Quotes: T
Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear, and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.
The greatest strength is gentleness.
The Heavens give us each a song.
The more you give, the more good things come to you.
The ones that matter most are the children, they are true human beings.
There is no death, only a change of worlds.
The Soul would have no rainbow if the eye had no tears.
They are not dead who live in the hearts they leave behind.
Native American Quotes: W
We are each a thread in the web of life, strengthened by the promise of our dreams.
We do not want riches. We want peace and love.
We return thanks to our mother,
the Earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the Earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in whom is embodied all goodness,
and who directs all things for the good of her children.
We will be known forever by the tracks we leave.
When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us.
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.
Wisdom comes when you start living the life the Creator intended for you.
Native American Quotes: Y
You already possess everything to become great.
You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep.
