Bruce Lee and the good fight

We ran into a Bruce Lee quote today, so figured it would only make sense to share some of his best quotes of all time!  Here we go!

 

  • I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.
  • Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.
  • Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.
  • Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
  • If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.
  • If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.
  • Having no limitation as limitation
  • A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
  • Don’t think, feel….it is like a finger pointing a way to the moon. Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory!
  • I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.
  • Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.
  • Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.
  • Love is like a friendship caught on fire.  In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and firce, but still only light and flickering.  As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, depp-burning and unquenchable.
  • If you always put limit on everything you do, physical, or anything else.  It will spread into your work and into your life.  There are no limits.  There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.
  • Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily creacked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
  • As you think, so shall you become.

  • It’s not the daily increase but the daily decrease.  Hack away at the unessential.
  • Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.

  • To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person.
  • Obey the principles without being bound by them.
  • To me, the extraordinary aspect of martial arts lies in its simplicity.  The easy way is also the right way, and martial arts is nothing at all special; the closer to the true way of martial arts, the less wastage of expression there is.
  • Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than.  Be not for or against.
  • You just wait.  I’m going to be the biggest Chinese Star in the world.
