"Coconuts are the fruit of the palm trees.
And as we have bread and wine, oil and vinegar,
so they get all these things from the said trees..
With two of these palm trees, a whole family of ten can sustain itself.the coconut trees last for a hundred years"
"He who plants a coconut tree plants food and drink,
vessels and clothing,
a home for himself and a heritage for his children"
- South Seas saying
"One of these nuts is a meal for a man, both meat and drink"
