Lokomaika‘i, the value of generosity

Lokomaika‘i: E ‘ōpū ali‘i

“No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart.”
—Kāvya Agarwal

E ‘ōpū ali‘i
‘Be as kind and as generous as a chief should be.’
—Dr. George Kanahele

Lokomaika‘i means “of good heart” and it is often considered the value of generosity. Rather than listing it separately in Managing with Aloha, we weave Lokomaika‘i into the value of Ho‘okipa, hospitality—the value of com

Quick read for me. Of the two stories "Rimmer deftly weaves together" I found I was only interested in one, Alina's, as I remain a fan of historical fiction. Try as I might, I found I didn't really care about Alice's character or her story.

Kristin Hannah does not disappoint, and my 4-star rating reflects comparison to her other books for me. It caused me to wonder how she would craft a book more subtly, and without tragedy. She evokes an emotional response from me every time however, a ...more

George Bernard Shaw
“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.”
George Bernard Shaw

Matthew Battles
“Roger Bacon held that three classes of substance were capable of magic: the herbal, the mineral, and the verbal. With their leaves of fiber, their inks of copperas and soot, and their words, books are an amalgam of the three.”
Matthew Battles, Library: An Unquiet History

Émile Zola
“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
Émile Zola

Kristin Kimball
“I was forced to confront my own prejudice. I had come to the farm with the unarticulated belief that concrete things were for dumb people and abstract things were for smart people. I thought the physical world - the trades - was the place you ended up if you weren't bright or ambitious enough to handle a white-collar job. Did I really think that a person with a genius for fixing engines, or for building, or for husbanding cows, was less brilliant than a person who writes ad copy or interprets the law? Apparently I did, though it amazes me now.”
Kristin Kimball, The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food, and Love

Maya Angelou
“I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.”
Maya Angelou
