"Even if it is a boy of seven years, if he is better than me, I will ask for his teaching. Even if it is a man of a hundred years, if he is not as good as me, I will instruct him." - Joshu

"When I was fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand having him around.
Now I'm twenty one, I'm amazed at how much the old man has learned in the past seven years."
