Random Peacock Quote

“A Wise Man Seeks True Knowledge, and a Man of Good Understanding Searches Out the Truths concerning all Important Subjects; but, an Ignorant Fool only Studies his own Face in the Mirror, looking for the Beauty of it, as if he made it; or, as if his Mother Created it, for which he Imagines that he should be very Proud of it, instead of only being Thankful to God for it: beCause he could have been Born in that very Ugly Body over there in the Land of Idiots, where they Smoke Weeds, and Eat with Dogs and Hogs.”&

11. Marco and Lupe are standing beside “Colijah,” that Old Wooden Indian, with Explanation

The Wooden Indian's Head Feathers are made from Turkey Feathers. Notice how Colorful the Native People are of almost all Countries, except … well, I had better not Mention WHO, lest someone should get Offended. Indeed, I, myself, being a Peacock, wear simple plain White Clothing: because I have not Discovered any Peacock Clothing to put on, yet. However, I am Sure that there will come a Day when I can also Dress up for a Special Occasion, and even have someone put a little Crown on my Head. Nevertheless, it will be Difficult to Outdo those Indians: because they had Great PRIDE in their Clothing and Head Dresses, which might have some Connection with their Destruction: because "Pride Comes Before Destruction," as King Solomon Warned.
