“A little while and I will be gone from among you, whither I cannot tell. From nowhere we came, into nowhere we go. What is Life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night, it is a breath of a buffalo in the winter-time, it is as the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.” (Crowfoot, Chief of the Blackfoot Nation)
