Proverbs from New Zealand
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
Boast during the day; be humble at night.
The block of wood should not dictate to the carver.
The more you ask how much longer it will take, the longer the journey will seem.
Persist as resolutely as you persist in eating.
