“I came here because I value culture, I value history, and I think the ancient cultures—can teach us an awful lot.”

“Tonight I’ve seen something which has a wonderful spiritual dimension. It gives me an insight into China’s past, and if I was Chinese I would be dreadfully proud today.”

“I think human beings are inherently seeking, and I think a spiritual dimension for human beings is very necessary in a very materalistic world. There has to be something more than the god of money: it’s goodness, it’s tolerance, it’s peace, and it’s beauty and grace, and all of that was demonstrated today. Absolutely fabulous.”

“[Shen Yun is] a unique event, an event which is above theatrical, is above normal. It’s spiritual, it’s beautiful, it’s graceful and it has a wonderful message [of] hope, belief in the goodness in life, and that there has to be a dimension that’s above materialism. China taught us that thousands of years ago.”

“I loved the music. The dancing was more than dancing. It was an expression of joy, hope, belief, so it’s left me very, very full of hope.”
