Maybe some quotes are fairly straight forward but, in my humble opinion, one should try to be quite careful in interpreting Soke's quotes without first knowing things like:

What is my level of understanding and the limitations of my own interpretation?
What was the level of knowledge of language, martial arts, history etc. of the interpreter?
Who was Soke talking to, what is/was their relationship, who else was present - what (if any) difference might that make?
What was the context? An open class or was it a personalised comment?
What led up to Soke saying whatever he said?


Exactly!!!!!
