“Es gibt nichts Gutes, außer man tut es” – There’s nothing good, unless you do it.
“Hutia te rito o te harakeke, Kei whea te komako e ko? Ki mai ki ahau; He aha te mea nui o te Ao? Maku e ki atu, he tangata, he tangata, he tangata.”
If the heart of harakeke was removed, where will the bellbird sing? If I was asked, what was the most important thing in the world; I would be compelled to reply; It is people, it is people, it is people!
