“The message of the spiritual tradition of China—that goes back 5000 years—is a very important part of it, and I understand that message of spirituality verses force. I think that it is a message for all of humanity, not only in China, but elsewhere, where those who seek spiritual enlightenment [and] spiritual freedom tend to be attacked because they are a threat to those who live by force... I thought it was communicated in an excellent way. It was communicated with aesthetics, with gentleness, with energy, with humor—with all of the things that I associate with the human spirit... The pure aesthetics of the color, the motion, the discipline, the lightness and the intensity, conveys a tremendous message and its very beautiful. I totally appreciate it.”
