I am not sure if your comment is simply some form of sophomoric push back or a honest question. However, giving you the benefit of doubt this time, i will look at it as the latter.

It is pretty common knowledge that Ueshiba was a student of the Chinese classics - does that mean he could read and write in Chinese, don't know, but that does not mean he could not quote them if he could not.

Just sayin', you claimed he used the exact same words. In point of fact, both Japanese and Chinese are not the type of languages that are typically "exact" at anything.
