Literary Lotus is taking a wee vacation–that’s why in the post below I’ve left you something to do: contribute your favorite saying. This way I’ll have something new to which to return when I get back early next week.

Here’s one to start you off, a Hawaiian proverb from ‘Olelo No’eau : Hawaiian Proverbs & Poetical Sayings by Mary Kawena Pukui.

2496: `Olelo i ke aka ka hele ho`okahi: One who travels alone has but his shadow to talk to. (said by Hi`iaka as she was leaving Kilauea on her quest for Lohi`au)
