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 man with a silver spoon may get his share of supporters, but he can never be an inspiration for somebody! Patience and hard work are the key to every man's success.
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.
Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless and add what is specifically your own.
Action doesn't come from inspiration... Inspiration comes from action.
An iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator... these are NOT three separate devices! And we are calling it iPhone! Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone. And here it is.
And it comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.
And no, we don't know where it will lead. We just know there's something much bigger than any of us here.
And one more thing.
Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
Art Nouveau got its inspiration from nature. The Bauhaus got its inspiration from engineering.
P. J. O'Rourke
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.
Becoming an inspiration for kids is great. I want to inspire them to do whatever they want to.
Before I do anything, I think, well what hasn't been seen. Sometimes, that turns out to be something ghastly and not fit for society. And sometimes that inspiration becomes something that's really worthwhile.
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful, that's what matters to me.
Benazir Bhutto was an inspirational leader and an inspirational woman.
But neither can you condemn nor justify and yet be extraordinarily alive as you walk on. You can never invite the wind but you must leave the window open.
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.
Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do.
