  • I had the opportunity to come to America back in 1973. The plans were all made and everything. Then Bruce died, and everything fell through. So I'm getting here 17 years late. Maybe I'm little old now, but that's no problem.

This kind of person made the meaning of people into data. A lot of things are screwy now. Confucianism nearly disappeared. Taoism became the tool to tell geomantic omen. Even the Buddhism temple is became a profiting organization. There are even more. But I don't think I would like to talk about it anymore.
  • Why do we always defend? Tai Chi never actively attacks. The art of war says "Retreating when the enemy advances".
