Chief Seattle: We Belong to the Earth

The earth does not belong to humanity; humanity belongs to the earth.  This we know.  All things are connected.  Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth.  We did not weave the web of life; we are only a strand in it.  Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
