Erick, this statement is quite disputable - anything you read that OSensei wrote is thrice removed from reality:
He experienced what he experienced - then
1. he had to think about it
2. he had to write what he thought about
3. what he had thought about and written about had to be translated into English
Another problem with it is verifying that he actually said it! I've heard from more than one source that many of the doka (for example) were written by Kishomaru as "things OSensei might have said."
Another reason I prefer to look at his deeds over 'his' words.
