Bruce Lee Quotes
Knowing is not enough, we must apply.
Willing is not enough, we must do.

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.

Preparation for tomorrow is hard work today.

All knowledge leads to self-knowledge.

Be happy, but never satisfied.

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.

The More we value things, the less we value ourselves.

For it is easy to criticize and break down the spirit of others, but to know yourself takes a lifetime.

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself,
do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.

Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.

If you love life,
don’t waste time,
for time is what life is made up of.

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.

I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.

Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.

A good teacher protects his pupils from his own influence.

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.

A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.

Don’t fear failure. Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.

Everything you do, if not in a relaxed state will be done at a lesser level than you are proficient.
Thus the tensed expert marksman will aim at a level less than his/her student.

Knowledge will give you power, but character will give respect.

A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.

If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.

All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.

Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.

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.

Empty your cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.

The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.

Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.

As you think, so shall you become.

To hell with circumstances;
I create opportunities.

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.

If you don’t want to slip up tomorrow, speak the truth today.

Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man. But sooner or later the man who wins, is the man who thinks he can.

Take things as they are. Punch when you have to punch. Kick when you have to kick.

Real living is living for others.

Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked,
while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.

Not being tense but ready.
Not thinking but not dreaming.
Not being set but flexible.
Liberation from the uneasy sense of confinement.
It is being wholly and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.

Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against.

The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be.

Man, the living creature, the creating individual,
is always more important than any established style or system.

It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease.
Hack away at the unessential. (Hack away at the inessentials)

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.

The doubters said, “Man can not fly,”
The doers said, “Maybe, but we’ll try,”
And finally soared, In the morning glow
While non-believers, Watched from below.

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.

Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain.
Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh;
let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones;
let him fracture your bones and you take his life!

Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!!

If you think you are beaten, You are
If you think you dare not, You don’t
If you like to win, but you think you can’t, It is almost certain you won’t

Time means a lot to me because you see I am also a learner and am often lost in the joy of forever developing.

Be self aware, rather than a repetitious robot.

Boards don’t hit back.
