Anna Wickham Quote
“Some people say, How can you live without knowing? I do not know what they mean. I always live without knowing. That is easy. How you get to know is what I want to know.”
The Meaning of It All (1999)
“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.”
“I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I have to go.”
The Waking (1953)
“Every Indian outbreak that I have ever known has resulted from broken promises and broken treaties by the government.”
Buffalo Bill Museum (1995 edition)
Died: 1947 (aged 63)
