Native American quotes about parenting

Be careful when speaking. You create the world around you with your words.

-from the Diné

Every step you take should be a prayer. And if every step you take is a prayer,
then you will always be walking in a sacred manner.

-Oglala Lakota Holyman

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you
by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors; we borrow it from our Children.

-Ancient Native American Proverb

I am poor and naked, but I am the chief of the nation. We do not
want riches but we do want to train our children right. Riches
would do us no good. We could not take them with us to the
other world. We do not want riches. We want peace and love.
