Native American proverbs

1. Those who have one foot in the canoe, and one foot in the boat, are going to fall into the river.

This means never do anything halfway

2. There is nothing as eloquent as a rattlesnakes tail.

This means that good things often have consequences

3. You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep.

This means that once a person makes up their mind, they wont often change it

4.We will be known forever by the tracks we leave

This means be careful of what legacy you leave behind

5. One rain does not make a crop.

You have to work for what you want

6. hold on to what is good, even if its a handful of earth

Be glad for what you have
