Live Life to the Fullest

Although written over 200 years ago, these incredibly wise words by Chief Tecumseh are every bit as relevant today as they were back then.  Chief Tecumseh was the leader of the Native American Shawnee Tribe, and lived his life as a true warrior.  May his words inspire you to live your life with passion, integrity and most importantly, without regrets.

Live Your Life
by Chief Tecumseh

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about their religion;
respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting
or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food
and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are
filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep
and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
