When all of the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover you cannot eat money.
 - Native American Proverb

I only recently realized that the famous opening line "We The People" from the U.S. Constitution was lifted, like this land itself, from the Native Americans, who simply called themselves "the People."
