Examples:
> It is better to be patient than powerful.
> Because humans aren't as smart as animals.
> All the animals were starting to be really glad and they were somewhat comforted.
> The travelers were thirsty in a few hours.
> They are angry because the adults are all talk and no action.
Proverbs:
> Like the heart of the halfbeak, straight.
The halfbeak, a small fish (bolobel), is regarded as one who follows his fancy or heart, doing as he pleases. The idiom is applied to persons who are easy-going, sleeping when the mood calls for it, undisturbed by the behavior or opinion of others.
> The male heart is like stone.
The true man or leader has a strong, unwavering character. His decisions are firm and unchanging.
> Sympathetic heart.
Emphasis is on empathy with the other person: serene contemplation of the problems of others and the art of taking the position of the other as one's own. Sources identify it with the Golden Rule and ideal Christian behavior.
> Buying the heart.
This is the strategy of anticipating the desires and wishes of others. It involves generosity in favors, gift giving, and praise. The art of anticipating the desired response by the question asked is polished. The use of humor to cajole those led is approved. When confronting a group, whether in dance or speech, a smile or pleasant, friendly expression is assumed.
> The heart and assessment.
This might better be translated, "Assessment with knowledge." The mind or head is thought to be the locus of knowledge in Palau, but such knowledge is made useful or is measured with the heart (reng). Chodab, in this context, would appear to mean "to take stock of" or "to measure." In essence, then, the phrase cautions one who seems on the point of making a rash decision to temper his thoughts with his heart.
More Examples:
> Ngerkumer, your husband is very nicely humble.
> I don't want to go listen to the politicians speak because they're so boring and talk forever but I wouldn't mind just going to eat the food.
> I'm so happy I finished my work.
> I didn't really realize that we are so darn stubborn.
> I'm not thirsty.
