"When your time comes to die, be not like those who hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."
- Tecumseh, great leader of the Shawnee People, the Panther in the Sky
For "extra credit":
listen to Bob Marley and the Wailers sing "Get Up, Stand Up";
google Tecumseh and refine your search to "quotes";
then read Richard Alpert's "Remember, Be Here Now."
