Chief Seatle | "How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth; of the land? That idea is strange to us. If we; do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle; the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? While man treats his mother, the earth, and; his brother, the sky, as things to be bought, plundered, sold like sheep or bright beads. His appetite will devour the earth and leave; behind only a desert.
