EVEREST differences [submitted by Luc Majno
"There's an Apache tale abut a man who woke up one morning and saw a hawk, walked outside and never returned. After he died, he met his wife in the Spirit World and she asked him why he never came home, and he said: "Well, the hawk just kept flying..."
- from the movie "The Missing" [submitted by Luc Majno]
"---Hear me, people, we have now to deal with another race - small and feeble when our fathers first met them but now great and overbearing.
Strangely enough they have a mind to till the soil and the love of possession is a disease with them.
These people have made many rules that the rich may break but the poor may not.
They take tithes from the poor and weak to support the rich who rule.
They claim this mother of ours, the earth, for their own and fence their neighbors away;
They deface her with their buildings and their refuse.
That nation is like a spring freshet that overruns its banks and destroys all who are in its path---".
Sitting Bull, Lakota Nation 1877

"Let us put our minds together and see what kind of life we can make for our children." - Sitting Bull
Spotted Tail [Sinte-Galeska] (1823-1881) Native American Chief of the Brule Sioux "This war did not spring up on our land, this war was brought upon us by the children of the Great Father who came to take our land without a price, and who, in our land, do a great many evil things. . . . This war has come from robbery--from the stealing of our land."
The Old Hopi sighed and stirred the fire to keep it going. "We got a lot more to think about", he said sadly. "We haven't even got to what the words from the sly foxes in the boxes have been saying and doing." He pulled down another well worn book and paged knowingly to a special place. He adjusted his glasses and began to read slowly: "Of course the people don't want war... Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany... that is understood... But voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
