I only found one comment by Dorn in my notes:

The deluxe aluminum-and-leather sash he wore in “Generations” gave Michael Dorn fits: "It's freakin' heavy and can wreak havoc with your body posture," Dorn recalls. "It gave me back problems." [TV Guide [June 24, 2006].

Also look for Dorn’s various comments on costumes, teeth, make-up, using the bat’leth, etc. – all of which may have affected his attitude to the character and the language over the years.

I don't recall direct quotes, but he was interviewed in the documentary "Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water" and was pretty clear about his opinions.  It is likely that someone on this list has a copy.

I would like to write a few lines on that topic in the Klingon Language

So – does anyone know of a quote or other source where Dorn actually
said this?
