All from Zitkala-Sa's "American Indian Stories, Legends, and Other Writings."
"My heart and I lie small upon the earth like a throbbing grain of sand."
"With the strong, happy sense that both great and small are so surely enfolded in His magnitude that, without a miss, each has his allotted individual ground of opportunities, I am buoyant with good nature."
Love them, love the stories. Yay American women regionalist authors!
