"Take from the earth only what you need." Where does that phrase come from?

Question:I think it is a Native American saying, but I'm not sure which tribe.

another variation to this quote that I can think of is..."Take only what you need to survive." which came from the movie spaceballs.

well, not much help with your original question, but I thought this would be cool to add. peace out.
Disney says Pocahontas said it. But I don't trust Disney--they have rewritten many a story in history..
“Take from the Earth only what you need. The Mother Earth will then be able to serve and support living creatures longer.”

--Lord Mahavir Jina, the 24th and last Tirthankara (great preacher, or guide) of the Jain religion
