Hoʻokahi nō lā o ka malihini.
A stranger only for a day.
After the first day as a guest, one must help with the work.

He pūkoʻa kani ʻāina. 
A coral reef that grows into an island. 
A person beginning in a small way gains steadily until he becomes firmly established.
(Mary Kawena Pukui, ʻŌlelo Noʻeau No. 932)
