~ Chased-by-Bears, Santee-Yanktonai Sioux, 1843-1915

“When a man does a piece of work [that] is admired by all, we say that it is wonderful; but when we see the changes of day and night, the sun, the moon, and the stars in the sky, and the changing seasons upon the earth, with their ripening fruits, anyone must [emphasis added] realize that it is the work of someone more powerful than man.”
