The earth and myself are of one mind. The measure of the land and the measure of our bodies are the same.

It was our belief that the love of possessions is a weakness to be overcome. . . Children must early learn the beauty of generosity. They are taught to give what they prize most, that they may taste the happiness of giving. . . The Indians in their simplicity literally give away all that they have to relatives, to guests of other tribes or clans, but above all to the poor and the aged, from whom they can hope for no return.
