...for if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
-- Jesus Christ.
"The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common.
Instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views
... which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering."
-- Doctor Who, "Face of Evil"
"Only when the last tree has died, only when the last river been poisoned,
only when the last fish has been caught, only then will we realise
we can not eat money." -- Cree Indian prophecy
Were i possessed of the least knowledge,
i would, when walking on the great way,
fear only paths that lead astray.
The great way is easy, yet people prefer by-paths.
The court is corrupt,
The fields are overgrown with weeds,
The granaries are empty;
Yet there are those dressed in fineries,
With swords at their sides,
Filled with food and drink,
And possessed of too much wealth.
This is known as taking the lead in robbery.
Far indeed is this from the way.
-- Lao Tzu
Treat the Earth and all that dwell thereon with respect.
Remain close to the Great Spirit.
Show great respect for your fellow beings
Work together for the benefit of all mankind
Give assistance and kindness wherever needed
Do what you know to be right
Look after the well-being of mind and body
Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good
Be truthful and honest at all times
Take full responsibility for your actions
-- "Ten Indian Commandments"
