Like my takes on Judaism and Christianity - I've yet to touch Islam, but then
I don't have nearly enough material on that yet - it's a thought experiement.

Mau e ki, "He aha te mea nui?"
You ask, "What is the most important thing?"
Maku e ki, "He tangata, he tangata, he tangata."
I reply, "It is people, it is people, it is people."
