Master Po: "Close your eyes. What do you hear?"
Young Caine: "I hear the water, I hear the birds."
Master Po: "Listen for the color of the sky. Look for the sound of the hummingbird's wing. Search the air for the perfume of ice on a hot day. If you have found these things, you will know. Do you hear your own heartbeat?"
Young Caine: "No."

Young Caine: "Old man, how is it that you hear these things?"
Master Po: "Young man, how is it that you do not?"
