People like to examine the things that frighten them, to look at them and give them names, so saints look for God, and scientists look for evidence. They're both just trying to take away the mystery, to take away the fear.
Your destiny is a mystery to us. What will happen when all the buffalo are slaughtered? What will happen when the wild horses are all tamed? What will happen when the secret corners of the forest are heavy with the scent of many men and the view of the ripe hills is bloated by talking wires? What happens to out thickets? They have disappeared. What happened to the Great Eagle? He too has disappeared. We are at the end of living and the beginning of survival.
