Words of an Iroquois Prophet

Note: These are not my words. They are attributed to Handsome Lake.

Speak evil of no one.

If you can say no good of a person, then be silent.

Let not your tongues betray you into evil:  For these are the words of our Creator.

Let all strive to cultivate friendship with those who surround them.
