We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love.
The trees are God's great alphabet:
With them He writes in shining green
Across the world His thoughts serene.
If the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian he can live in peace. There need be no trouble. Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and grow. All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers. The earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it.
Knowledge was inherent in all things. The world was a library and its books were the stones, leaves, grass, brooks and the birds and animals that shared, alike with us ,the storms and blessings of the earth. We learn to do what only the student of nature ever learns, and that is to feel beauty. We never rail at the storms, the furious winds ,the biting frosts and snows. To do so intensifies human futility, so whatever comes we should adjust ourselves by more effort and energy if necessary, but without complaint. Bright days and dark days are both expressions of the Great Mystery, and the Indian reveled in being close the the Great Holiness.
The great, unreported story in globalization is about power, not ideology. It's about how finance and business regularly, continuously insert their own self-interested deals and exceptions into rules and agreements that are then announced to the public as "free trade."
It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
Learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace.
Tension is the great integrity.
Great things are done when men and mountains meet
The great moments of life are but moments like the others. Your doom is spoken in a word or two. A single look from the eyes, a mere pressure of the hand, may decide it; or of the lips, though they cannot speak.
The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
A great power has to have the discipline not only to go when necessary but to know when not to go. Getting involved in ethnic, religious civil wars is a recipe for disaster.
The news that Osama Bin Laden is dead will bring great relief to people across the world.
There is no calamity which a great nation can invite which equals that which follows a supine submission to wrong and injustice.
The great leaders have always stage-managed their effects.
The fool has one great advantage over a man of sense he is always satisfied with himself.
Time is the enemy of the poor business and the friend of the great business. If you have a business that\'s earning 20%-25% on equity, time is your friend. But time is your enemy if your money is in a low return business.
Never stop just because you feel defeated. The journey to the other side is attainable only after great suffering.
We are in a great night of the world. The thing is to know if we shall wake up to-morrow. We have only one succor we know of what the night is made. But shall we be able to impart our lucid faith, seeing that the heralds of warning are everywhere few, and that the greatest victims hate the only ideal which is not one, and call it utopian?
Never allow the integrity of your own way of seeing things and saying things to be swamped by the influence of a master, however great.
To accomplish great things we must first dream, then visualize, then plan.
