"The braves from the Carlisle Indian School showed that they know something of their forefathers, when they defeated the young palefaces of the Naval Service by 3 to 2 today in the most exciting lacrosse game ever seen here. All the scoring was done in the first half, and the second period was so desperately contested that neither side was able to net the ball once. In the second half particularly the playing was so fast and determined that neither team had time for such side issues as little individual scraps. The Indians’ running and catching were remarkable. They played the ball on the ground largely and this proved confusing to the middies, who do most of their work above the heads of their opponents. On the whole, it was a splendid contest, with two types of players and playing opposed."

There is a growing sentiment in America that regular saving should be ignored, that the government will take care of people and give them security when they get beyond a certain age or become old and unable to work. But it must be borne in mind that the people who earn and do save, they take care of the government! Were it not for the thrifty and the willing workers, the government would be in a bad way. George Matthew Adams

Hair of the Dog (from The Dictionary of Word and Phrase Origins): The theory--and a most unsound one it is--that the best remedy for a hangover is another drink (hair of the dog that bit you) goes back to ancient times. The Romans believed that the best remedy for a dog bite was the burned hair of the dog that had attacked you. They even had a proverb Similia similibus curantur ("Like things cure like") to express this belief.

Oh, Great Spirit Whose voice I hear in the winds, And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me, I am small and weak, I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice. Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people. Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - myself. Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes. So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my Spirit may come to you without shame.
Native American Prayer translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark in 1887

We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has grown...but we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand that preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched us, and strengthened us. And we have vainly imagined in the deceitfulness of our hearts that all of these blessings were provided by some superior wisdom or virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace...too proud to pray to the God who made us. The pursuit of happiness has become the pursuit of pleasure, and we wonder why we cannot find inner peace. When will we learn that inner happiness does not depend on outward circumstances? Abraham Lincoln announcing the First National Day of Thanksgiving in America, 1863.
