Quote of the Day 30 September 2013 ~ You Are Alive

When you know who you are;
when your mission is clear and you
burn with the inner fire of unbreakable will;
no cold can touch your heart;
no deluge can dampen your purpose.
You know that you are alive.”
~ Chief Seattle
About the chief:
Chief Seattle (an Anglicization of the modern Duwamish conventional spelling Si’ahl, equivalent to the modern Lushootseed publishing spelling Si’a?Lushootseed pronunciation: [?si’a??], originally [?si’a???];[1] c. 1780 – June 7, 1866) was a Dkhw’Duw’Absh (Duwamish) chief, also known as SealthSeathle,Seathl, or See-ahth. A prominent figure among his people, he pursued a path of accommodation to white settlers, forming a personal relationship with David Swinson “Doc” Maynard. The city of Seattle, in the U.S. state of Washington, was named after him. A widely publicized speech arguing in favor of ecological responsibility and respect of native Americans’ land rights has been attributed to him.
