"You advanced pragmatic wisdom for our crowd, particularly with what I considered the quote of the speech: ‘Cut the chains and you become free, cut the roots and you die.' I believe those words will be carried by our audience in perpetuity. Again, we thank you so much for your fantastic contribution, for delivering a perfect presentation, for educating everyone of the realities of China and India emergence, and for making our CSLE event more special.
