Mr. Miyagi Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Mr. Miyagi's letter (read by Kumiko): In life, I have always looked for signs to show me the right way. But I got lost. Until I met Daniel-san. His kind heart, strong chi, and loyalty and love for those around him is a guiding light to me. I'm very proud for the man he has become. Even though he still has a hard head. I never thought I would have a family again. Daniel-san has welcomed me into his family. And he has passed on what I teach him in Miyagi-Do to his daughter. Samantha... makes me feel like I am her tanmee. In life, we'll always lose our way. But it is people, not the signs, that guide us back to the right path. Do you like that, Yukie? I heard that in a car commercial. Love, Nariyoshi Miyagi.
