> All the animals were starting to be really glad and they were somewhat comforted.
> He keeps given instructions that no one listens to./He tells people he's going to do a lot, but he doesn't do much after all.
> Droteo is following in his fathers footsteps (i.e., following his father's way of life).
> Did you read any a single book today?
Proverbs:
> He's like the sea urchins between Ngiwal and Melekeok, on the ocean floor with its cover.
The sea urchin can be seen lying quietly on the lagoon floor, occasionally with a leaf like a hat covering its head. Applied to a man who acquires a wife or great wealth without working for it.
> It's as if I've submerged my head into Mekaeb (the channel between Peleliu and Agaur).
A term to describe a dish that is really salty.
> It's like the foam of the sea, which forms unexpectedly and then disappears.
It's a matter that comes up for lengthy discussions and then is dropped without resolution or effect. Some things, like sea foam, drift on without settlement. Endless discussion without reaching agreement.
> Be strong, shallows are close
Crossing the lagoon, a canoe is poled in shallow water, paddled in deep. The phrase refers to canoeists tiring after a long paddle over deep water. Applied when someone is about to give up, though better times are ahead.
> You're like sardines, very many but only enough for one wrapped piece of fish.
Fish are properly wrapped individually in a leaf for cooking, but sardines are so small that a bunch of them may be wrapped together to make up only one small bundle. The idiom may be applied to a numerous but weak enemy or to a clan that is large but ineffective as in raising money for its members, or for a large group of workers who do not accomplish very much.
More Examples:
> I want to go (with you) but my legs are too painful.
> I'll be in Palau for only one week
> Yes, it's been raining since morning.
> My knives have gone missing.
> Take it and give it to an empty-handed person.
