Annie Redfeather: The last thing we did together was plant blueberries together, just like we've done every spring, and we saw this beautiful sunset. Ruth used to tell me no one could make a sunset, or a tree, or a flower. Only God could do that. She really had this - deep faith... What good did it do her? It didn't keep her from falling, or dying when her head hit that rock.
Ari: [sneezes before clambering out of the barrel with a scroll] You know, ah, you really oughta dust these once every century or so!
Daniel: I will do my best, O King. I will pray to God for guidance.
Daniel: I must do what is right. And trust God to take care of *me*.
Nathaniel: It's your faith, or your life.
Daniel: My faith *is* my life. And my life is in the hands of one far greater than King Darius.
[starting to pray]
Daniel: O Lord our God...
Daniel: Did I not tell you I would ask God's help in serving you well?
Annie Redfeather: So, how come an angel saved Daniel but Ruth had to die all by herself?
Plato: Eventually, Daniel *did* have to face death. We all do. But when we have faith, we don't feel alone.
Annie Redfeather: Ruth loved that poem. She said it comforted her. You know, she had a lot of problems. She lost a child... Her husband died... She never had much money. And she had to raise her other kids alone. But she said because of her faith, she never *felt* alone. She always believed God was with her.
Harriet Tubman: The children of Israel made it to *their* Promised Land, and these children will too.
Bessie: I don't know how you keep goin'.
Harriet Tubman: See the North Star up yonder? Years ago, I set out for freedom by the light of that star. I had no human guide, or companion. But, I had my faith. And I followed my star, and my faith kept me going. And it's kept me going ever since.
