Live Your Life


Live your life that the fear of death

can never enter your heart.

Trouble no one about his religion.

Respect others in their views

and demand that they respect yours.

Seek to make your life long

And of service to people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day

When you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting

Or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.

Show respect to all people but remain true to yourself.

Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.

When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light,

For your strength, for your life.


Chief Tecumseh of the Shawnee Nation (1768-1813)
