“The way I see it today, in light of developments in industry, even in spite of it, you my friends are the future of craft skill. You are the ones your children and grandchildren will look to and say, ‘my parents, my grandparents, were highly skilled people and they cared about skill and the arts enough to preserve it in our family.’”

Paul Sellers

“Anger may in time change to gladness; vexation may be succeeded by content.”

Sun Tzu
The Art of War

“ . . . [Davita] Malo wrote a letter to Kenahu to pass along to the King [Kamehameha III] . . . ‘If a big wave comes in, large fishes will come from the dark ocean which you never saw before. And when they see the small fishes they will eat them up. The ships of the white men have come and smart people have arrived from the great countries which you have never seen before. They know our people are few in number and living in a small country. They will eat us up. Such has always been the case with large countries. The small ones have been gobbled up.’”
