      "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."

      Chief Tecumseh, Shawnee Nation
