Famous Native American Quotes

Quotations by Native Americans

We learned to be patient observers like the owl. We learned cleverness from the crow, and courage from the jay, who will attack an owl ten times its size to drive it off its territory. But above all of them ranked the chickadee because of its indomitable spirit.
Tom Brown, Jr., The Tracker

The land is sacred. These words are at the core of your being. The land is our mother, the rivers our blood. Take our land away and we die. That is, the Indian in us dies.

Famous Native American Quotes

Quotations by Native Americans

When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
Chief Aupumut (1725), Mohican.

To Quote or Not To Quote?

Joan Koerber-Walker today wrote a blog post with a title of  “To quote or not to quote – That is the question.” on the topic of twitter and authenticity in Social Media and how everyone has an opinion.  Joan had recently quoted Dr. Seuss and some other authors and one of her friends had said:  “NO RECYCLED QUOTES. YOU ARE BETTER THAN THAT.”  Joan reacted with a detailed analysis of why she used those quotations, how she got to where she is in social media and where she hopes to go in the future.

Here’s my lesson learned this weekend.  If authenticity is important,  then you just have to be who you are.  I am just what my personal profile says… an eclectic mix.  Not to say that I can’t learn to be better.  I’ll follow Tyler’s advice and perhaps use some more of my own quotes more frequently rather than quoting someone else.  Francine and Marty have encouraged me to write/blog more.  (Francine even told me that my writing has improved.  But that’s for you to decide.)  I’ll keep reading and sharing the articles, news stories, and bits that I think have value.  Sharing things of value with others is what I do everyday outside the twitterverse. I’ll chat more, broadcast less,  AND – I’ll try to mix it up a bit more so as not to be annoying.
