Most said phrase

 A while back twas posted here a query bout what's the most used phrase of Shunryu Suzuki as we peruse the archive of his lectures and other words. Is it "most important" which we established is now repeated 266 times, equally divided twixt most important thing and point. Nope. How about when he ended his lectures with Thank you. There are 384 of them of which 339 are Thank you very much.
