Every poet, I suppose, should fall madly in love at least once in her life, so that she may come to know the shadow side of the feminine human experience, plumb the depth of her own vulnerability and emerge the wiser.
What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is a breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is as the little shadow that runs across the grass and looses itself in the sunset. [full quote][add comments][Rate][Share]
Crowfoot or Isapo-Muxika (Blackfoot "Crow-big-foot") was a chief of the Siksika First Nation. His parents, Istowun-eh'pata (Packs a Knife) and Axkahp-say-pi (Attacked Towards Home), were Kainai. His brother Iron Shield became Chief Bull. (Wikipedia)
Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
