I had learned a lot of
english words, could count a part of the ten orders. I know, how to sleep in
a bed, pray to Jesus, how to use a comb, how to eat with knife and fork and
how to use the toilet. Also, I learned, that man think with his head and not
with his heart.

Men were called into
the council because of their merit. A man could be poor, having only few horses,
living in a little teepee and, nevertheless, he can be in council. Only riches
didnít help nobody to get influence and power. If a man could have very much
horses, he couldnít buy a place in the council.
Luther Standing Bear
Treat every human being,
like he is a relation to you.
Proverb of the Navajo

As I look into
the eyes of brother wolf, I see honor, strength, dignity. So I wonder how can
man destroy these wonderful creations of the creator.
Look into the eyes of a wolf and you shall see your soul laid bare, and know
that there are greater things in this world; other than material wealth.
Look deep into the wolf eyes and you shall see the greatest creature who have
ever walk this earth. Look into your own eyes and see the greatest destroyer
that walks this earth.
I am starting to learn that man does not have to be as he is, we can have wolf
It is not important, what your
head is thinking but what your heart is speaking
