Examples:
> The tree is obstructing or bothering the road so I cannot go to the other side.
> I am so worried that I cannot speak.
> There is no other decree so powerful and fast moving as this.
> You don't want to go to the movies, and you don't even want to go to the restaurant, so what do you really want to do?
> You won't get anywhere (lit., you'll become (as thin as) a stick and (still) not succeed).
Proverbs:
> Water is without cost.
Palauans bathe frequently; many will not miss a daily bath if at all possible. Bathing places are usually widened areas, natural or artificial (some elaborately paved with stone) in fresh-water streams. The phrase simply reminds another, probably a reluctant child, that he should bathe.
> Like the Bilimbi tree which, if not shaken, will not bear fruit.
Applied to a person who does not fulfill their obligations without constant prodding or nagging.
> You're like a floating log without a resting place.
You have no fixed abode.
> Like Kerosene, poling his canoe with no obvious destination
Under the German administrator Winkler before World War I, a Palauan named Ngirakerisil (Mr. Kerosene) was employed as a canoe operator. Daily he would take the tireless administrator to a different part of Palau to inspect the various economic programs (largely coconut planting) instituted by the now legendary Winkler. The operator, least of all, could predict where they would be going next. The idiom is applied to any aimless person or action; indecision; a changeable person.
> You're like the bisech plant in the backyard which has no purpose.
A person who isn't trusted so he/she is not needed.
More Examples:
> I will not forget your generousity.
> It won't rain. It's just cloudy today.
> You won't profit from getting it.
> I'm not too hungry.
> I kinda dont like women with tattoos.
