Quote: As I lay there thinking of my vision, I could see it all and feel the meaning with a part of me like a strange power glowing in my body; but when the part of me that talks would try to make words for the meaning, it would be like fog and get away from me. — Black Elk [Heȟáka Sápa] (1863–1950 ) Oglala Lakota holy man
