"In our way of life, in our government, with every decision we make,
we must always keep in mind 'The Seventh Generation to come'.
It's our job to see that the people coming ahead, the generations still

When we walk upon Mother Earth we always plant our feet carefully
because we know the faces of our future generations are looking
up at us from beneath the ground.
We must never forget them."

"To laugh often and much to win the respect of intelligent
people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and
endure the betrayal of false friends.

To appreciate beauty and to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know that even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
