At crimes that ‘scape, or triumph o’er the law:

‘Nothing is sacred now but villainy.”

“Long Before I ever heard of Christ, or saw a White man, I had learned from an untutored woman the essence of morality. With the help of dear Nature herself, she taught me things simple but of mighty import. I knew God. I perceived what goodness is. I saw and loved what is really beautiful. Civilization has not taught me anything better!”
Charles A. Eastman, The Soul of the Indian”
