Kia ora. To encourage the use of Te Reo Māori we are publishing weekly kupu (words) and phrases that can be used with children.
He manako te koura i kore ai.
There are no crayfish as you set your heart on them.
This is similar to not putting all your eggs in one basket. You could also consider this as “don’t count your chickens before they are hatched”.
