  • Quotes

    • Master Kan: In one lifetime a man knows many pleasures: a mother's smile in waking hours, a young woman's intimate, searing touch, and the laughter of grandchildren in the twilight years. To deny these in ourselves is to deny that which makes us one with nature.

    • Master Kan: Weakness prevails over strength. Gentleness conquers. Become the calm and restful breeze that tames the violent sea.
