‘A‘ohe lokomaika‘i i nele i ke pana‘i
“No kind deed has ever lacked its reward”
Hawaiians are known for their generosity, hospitality and warm sharing. This giving nature is grounded in the principle of reciprocity. When given, the Hawaiian will give back in equal measure or more, be it a gift or a smile. Source: ‘Olelo No‘eau, Mary Kawena Pukui.
