New Zealand is isolated and insular and it’s very easy to become provincial in a place like this. It’s very easy to become smug and say this is god’s own country, there’s nothing better than this. It is blessed but there are many, many other great places in the world and it’s good for you to have a look at it.– Sam Neill
Elite sports people doing well make us feel better about ourselves. New Zealand on a Monday after the All Blacks have won on a Saturday is a much better place to be, we’re much more productive, much happier.– Trevor Mallard
