Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.

Here is natural instinct and here is control. You are to combine the two in harmony, now if you have one to the extreme, you will be very unscientific. If you have another to the extreme, you will become all of a sudden be a mechanical man.

if you do not have style, if you just say here I am, as a human being, how can I express myself? totally and completely…

I mean, that is the expression of the human body. I mean everything. I mean, you know, not just the hands.
