Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend , even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
Tecumseh, attributed by Lee Sulzman, Shawnee History
If there be one here tonight who believes that his rights will not sooner or later be taken from him by the avaricious American pale faces, his ignorance ought to excite pity, for he knows little of our common foe... Then listen to the voice of duty, of honor, of nature and of your endangered country. Let us form one body, one heart, and defend to the last warrior our country, our homes, our liberty, and the graves of our fathers.Tecumseh
One of my legs is shot off! But leave me one or two guns loaded — I am going to have a last shot. Be quick and go!Tecumseh
Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.Tecumseh
