Bruce Lee Quotes
A fight is not won by one punch or kick. Either learn to endure or hire a bodyguard.
A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.
A good Jeet Kune-Do man does not oppose force or give way completely. He is pliable as a spring; he is the complement and not the opposition to his opponent's strength. He has no technique; he makes his opponent's technique his technique. He has no design; he makes opportunity his design.
A good teacher protects his pupils from his own influence.
A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.
A teacher must never impose this student to fit his favorite pattern. A good teacher functions as a pointer, exposing his student's vulnerability causing him to explore both internally and finally integrating himself with his being. Martial art should not be passed out indiscriminately.
A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless and add what is specifically your own.
Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.
All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.
All types of knowledge, ultimately mean self knowledge.
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
Art calls for complete mastery of techniques, developed by reflection within the soul.
As an instructor, you must be able to distinguish between poor performance caused by lack of ability or aptitude on the part of the student and poor performance caused by lack of effort. You should treat the first with patience and the latter with firmness. You must never apply sarcasm and ridicule.
As long as I can remember I feel I have had this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence, greater than determination, greater than vision. It is all these combined. My brain becomes magnetized with this dominating force which I hold in my hand.
As you think, so shall you become.
Be happy, but never satisfied.
Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
Be self aware, rather than a repetitious robot.
Because one does not want to be disturbed, to be made uncertain, he establishes a pattern of conduct, of thought, a pattern of relationship to man etc. Then he becomes a slave to the pattern and takes the pattern to be the real thing.
