This article, Mahatma Gandhi: A Century of Peaceful Protest complements and expands on the post I made on 9/11.
Chief Seattle was a leader of Gandhi’s type. This dirge for his people makes me cry. The paddle sweep: quote of the day (copied from a bumpersticker in Earthfoods) comes from a revised version written as fiction some years later.
Interestingly – having filled out a questionnaire for non-Muslims who might be interested in reading the Qu’ran earlier this morning – I’m not sure the “fictional” quote is out of context. I suppose this could be just because I’ve heard it in this form so often.
