All things share the same breath – the beast, the tree, the man … the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Man does not weave this web of life.
He is merely a strand of it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
Chief Seattle, 1854
