A Quote by unknown on good, mortality, obstacles, proverbs, and reputation

The natives of the South Seas have a fabulous reputation of good seamanship. Nevertheless, there is an old Tongan proverb, "Koe make mangalongalo oku fakafoa vaka." (It is always the hidden reef that sinks a canoe.) So one finds it in mortality-the unforeseen obstacles are most apt to keep a traveler from receiving exaltation.
