Pearls of Wisdom from Hawaii

Feel the touch of Hawaiian thought and spirituality with these pearls of wisdom from a book by a Hawaiian Kahuna, Keeper of the Deep Mysteries. Pearls of wisdom are those phrases that hold up for generations and offer insight that help us to realize goals of health and happiness.

Never judge a day by the weather.

The best things in life aren’t things.

Tell the truth–there’s less to remember.

Speak softly and wear a loud shirt.

Goals are deceptive. The unaimed arrow never misses.

He who dies with most toys still dies.

Age is relative. When you are over the hill, you pick up speed.

There are two ways to be rich–make more or desire less.

Beauty is internal–looks mean nothing.

No rain, no rainbows.

Say “I love me,” and you’ll always have plenty.
