Quotes

"Designed to stimulate Aucklanders through storytelling, sustainable thinking and innovation, the event will celebrate the resilience and courage of individuals who are making the world a better place" the organisers say

The idea of a randomly generated universe goes out the window.”"
"The spirits will help them. If these foreigners are honest and devote their time without malice and evil, they will be rewarded spiritually. Oh yes, they will."
