The importance of learning

Whilst i was in New Zealand the following traditional Maori saying was told at the end of our information exchange session. It was a fitting end to an interesting session.

Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nona te ngahere. Ko te manu e kai ana i te matauranga, nona te ao

which translates as;

The bird that feasts on the miro berries will inherit the forest, but the bird that feasts on knowledge will inherit the world.
