Bruce Lee's quotes

  • Absorb what is useful, Discard what is not, Add what is uniquely your own.
  • Simplicity is the last step of art.
  • A teacher is never a giver of truth - he is a guide, a pointer to the truth that each student must find for himself. A good teacher is merely a catalyst.
  • When an opportunity in a fight presents itself, "I" don't hit, "it" hits all by itself.
  • Empty your mind. Become formless and shapeless like water. When water is poured into a cup, it becomes the cup. When water is poured into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Be water, my friend.
  • 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.
  • The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.
  • Don't think, feel! It is like a finger pointing away to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory.
  • A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.
  • There's no challenge in breaking a board. Boards don't hit back.
  • Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential.
  • Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
  • Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
  • Martial art is ultimately an athletic expression of the dynamic human body. More important yet, is the person who is expressing his own soul.
  • I have always been a martial artist by choice, an actor by profession, but above all, am actualising myself to be an artist of life.
  • A goal is not always meant to be reached; it often serves simply as something to aim at.
  • The martial arts are ultimately self-knowledge. A punch or a kick is not to knock the hell out of the guy in front, but to knock the hell out of your ego, your fear, or your hang-ups.
  • I'm not in this world to live up to your expectations and you're not in this world to live up to mine.
  • You know what I want to think of myself? As a human being. Because, I mean I don't want to sound like ask Confucius, sayyyyyy--(joking) but under the sky, under the heaven, man, there is but one family. It just so happens that people are different.
