Hawai‘i Wisdom — August 2015

Hawaii wisdomE lauhoe mai na wa‘a; i ke ka, i ka hoe; i ka hoe, i ke ka; pae aku i ka ‘aina.

“Everybody paddle the canoes together; bail and paddle, paddle and bail, and the shore is reached.”

Pitch in with a will, everybody, and the work is quickly done. Along with promoting teamwork, this saying offers a phrase of encouragement for group members to persevere during the drudgery of a task until the goal is achieved.
