Words of a Kaumātua: When you want a smile, give yours away

When you want a smile, give yours away

When you want affection, you give affection

When you help people, they help you

When you want love, give your love

Ka nui taku aroha ki a koe - My love for you knows no bounds. ~ Māori proverb #TeWikioteReoMāori #MāoriLanguageWeek #MahuruMaori

Kua rongo ake au…

Tuku whakamoemiti, āta haere ki te ākau

Mā te wā koe e tiaki e manaaki e kākahu

Ki ngā hua o ōu werawera

I have learned that…

All spiritual teaching encourages ’giving thanks’

We receive in life what we dwell upon

A sense of gratitude, and an inner knowing

Life will bless you and is more enriching

Than logic and mathematics

~ From Words of a Kaumātua by Haare Williams.
