In June, 2000, Successories of Hawaii contacted two Hawaiian Language experts to translate their 12 English quotes written by Dr. Linda Andrade Wheeler into the Hawaiian language. The Collection of English quotes translated into Hawaiian quotes were called, The Essence of Aloha.
The translated quotes were completed by January, 2001. These beautiful quotes were then laser-engraved on matte frames with a breath-taking island scene to create our unique line of island inspirational lithographs. In addition, The Essence of Aloha quotes were also put on island greeting cards and wallet cards. These products were sold at Successories of Hawaii at Ward Centre from 2001 – 2007 and are now available exclusively through https://www.drlindawheeler.com/

The most popular of The Essence of Aloha quotes at Successories of Hawaii was the quote entitled, Po’okela (excellence) It is through the way you serve others that your greatness will be felt.
