Quotes

"Despite considerable attention paid to the issue of inequality, the data outlined in our research indicates that New Zealand's strategy to address inequality as it relates to Maori and Pacific people has not been successful" Dr Marriott said
...But she was allowed to be naughtier than her contemporaries, mainly on account of the benign neglectfulness of her parents. "I’m sure it came as a shock to John, sometimes, to realise he’d got children" a neighbour remarked
"I can’t wait to hear everybody’s take on what’s different, what's the same" he said. "I’m really looking forward to hearing people’s feedback, positive and negative."
...Or...I can consult a certain all-too-relevant Seamus Heaney poem, which says: "The way we are living, timorous or bold, will have been our life." So don't numb out this day. That too easily becomes numbing out every day. Which will have been your life
