Cherokee Wisdom

Skunk cabbage or something beautiful? It all depends on what you want to see.

“Negative thinking is a habit that can be changed—if we really want to change it. It is too often like pressing on a sore spot just one more time to see if it still hurts. Most people’s problems are found in areas of need—the need to have difficulty, the need to have something to deal with so they can feel needed and important. After all, what do we do when no one is depending on us? It is an innate Cherokee belief that we have no need to borrow trouble…let it stay where it is.” —Joyce Sequichie Hifler

“Though we are powerful and strong, and we know how to fight, we do not wish to fight.” —The Cherokees
