Traditional and Wise Sayings, 1922.

There Are No Youths of Kohala That Just Wander About.

The idea of this saying is that when Kohala youths go travelling, they take along provisions: vegetables, meat, and so forth. Looking at it in another way, it is like a boast; it is saying that Kohala has no vagrants; they are prepared in every way when doing things. In English, the whole thought goes: “There are no bums in Kohala,” and is a boast.

[During this period, there were many articles on traditional proverbs printed!]
