Voice of the Day: Chief Seattle of the Suquamish

"One thing we know, which the white man may one day discover, our God is the same God. You may think now that you own Him as you wish to own our land; but you cannot. He is the God of man, and His compassion is equal for the red man and the white. This earth is precious to Him, and to harm the earth is to heap contempt on its Creator." - Chief Seattle Chief Seattle of the Suquamish + Sign up to receive our quote of the day via e-mail
