Na’auao – Wisdom

Na’auao is a song composed by the Bruins (Punahou 4th Grade Class of 2025) and ManMan. In music class, we created this song together combining different quotes about wisdom. The process helped us to understand the concept of knowledge, insight, empathy and wisdom. It might take us a lifetime to understand some of these concept, but we hope someday this catchy tune will come in handy to remind us how and where we can find wisdom.

Na’ auao Na Na ’auao
Knowledge comes from learning. Wisdom comes from living. (A.D. William)
Any fool can know. The point is to understand. (Albert Einstein)

Na’ auao Na Na ’auao
Tell me, I will remember,
teach me, I will know,
show me, and I will do
always try your best, Never say no,

Na’ auao Na Na ’auao
Embrace your mistakes, mistakes help us grow
Seek first to understand, then to be understood (Steven Covey)

knowledge is not given, but you can learn to get it
You can’t’ buy wisdom, but in time, you will get it

Na’ auao Na Na ’auao
Ability to do, and do what’s right
Live – life – without regrets!

Never stop learning, life never stop teaching
To know is not enough, we need to understand

Na’ auao Na Na ’auao
Empathy, insight, knowledge, wisdom
