A Quote by Kent Nerburn on big elk, misfortunes, death, troubles, tribulations, and trials

Do not grieve.  Misfortune will happen to the wisest and best of men.  Death will come, always out of season.  It is the command of the Great Spirit, and all nations and people must obey.  What is past and cannot be prevented should not be grieved for… Misfortunes do not flourish particularly in our lives - they grow everywhere.  Big Elk - Omaha Chief
