seem to lack sense, but they don't do senseless things. They’re not
terribly energetic, yet they do not waste energy. Turtles Don’t have the
intellect to form opinions about greed, oppression, superstition or
ideology, yet they don’t inflict misery on themselves or other
creatures. Turtles cannot consider what might happen, yet nothing
turtles do, threatens anyone’s future. Turtles don’t think about
their next generation, but they risk and provide all they can to ensure
that there will be one.
If you talk to the animals
They will talk with you,
And you will know each other.
If you do not talk to them,
You will not know them,
And what you do not know,
You will fear.
What one fears, one destroys.
Chief Dan George
If all the beasts were gone,|
man would die
from a great loneliness of spirit.
For whatever happens to the beasts
soon happens to man.
All things are connected.
