Bruce Lee: I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who had practiced one kick 10,000 times. Bruce Lee: If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of. Bruce Lee: Be happy, but never satisfied. Bruce Lee: Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it. Bruce Lee: A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer. Bruce Lee: If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done. Bruce Lee: Be self aware, rather than a repetitious robot. Bruce Lee: Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one. Bruce Lee: You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water, my friend. Bruce Lee: Don’t fear failure. Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail. Bruce Lee: A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at. Bruce Lee: Defeat is not defeat unless accepted as a reality in your own mind. Bruce Lee: Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them. Bruce Lee: Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind. Bruce Lee: To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities. Bruce Lee: Boards don’t hit back. Bruce Lee: Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own. Bruce Lee: Empty your cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality. Bruce Lee: The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering. Bruce Lee: Real living is living for others. Bruce Lee: 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. Bruce Lee: The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment. Bruce Lee: It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential. Bruce Lee: The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus. Bruce Lee: If you always put limits 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. Bruce Lee: As you think, so shall you become. Bruce Lee: Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it. Bruce Lee: Preparation for tomorrow is hard work today.
