Chief Seattle
My people are few. They resemble the scattering trees of a storm-swept plain...There was a time when our people covered the land as the waves of a wind-ruffled sea cover its shell-paved floor, but that time long since passed away with the greatness of tribes that are now but a mournful memory.
Chief Seattle, The Chief Seattle's Speech

Kiera Cass
Listen to me, kitten. Win or lose, you’ll always be a princess to me.
Kiera Cass, The Selection
