When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that 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.
From my tribe I take nothing, I am the maker of my own fortune.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
A single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
