By Cheng Man-ching
"Strangely enough he also said that if he did not tell me of this word that I would not be able to learn T'ai-chi in three lifetimes (meaning never). I doubted his words then. Now that I think back, I truly believe that if he did not keep reminding me of the word "relax", I doubt if I could have learned T'ai-chi Chuan in six lifetimes.
