"The biggest thing the white man takes from us ain't our bodies. He takes our voices, too. He swallows up our yes's and no's like biscuits. But one day our yes's and no's will be so loud and strong they will lodge in his throat. He will have to spit them out to keep from choking. He will starve. There won't be nothing left of him except the shadows he casts on the deadest night."
― Jonathan Odell, The Healing
"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will."
"To be given dominion over another is a hard thing; to wrest dominion over another is a wrong thing; to give dominion of yourself to another is a wicked thing."
"If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." k
