Abstract:

"Pearls of wisdom - whakataukī- have been gifted from generation to generation as an intrinsic part of the Māori world. As powerful metaphors, they combine analogy and cultural history in the most economical of words. Short and insightful, they take you by surprise, engendering reflection, learning and personal growth. Mauri ora links whakataukī to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. The virtues - wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief - stem from the field of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life"--Jacket.

Each whakataukī is presented in Māori and English and is accompanied by a photograph to represent the relevant quality or virtue.
