Along with Mr. Miyagi and Michael Caine, we can always rely on the late Bruce Lee to deliver a steady stream of quotable wisdom.

If you're having relationship issues, job concerns or struggling to find the stamina to become a kung fu warrior, we can guarantee that Bruce will have something constructive to say.

1. "Running water never grows stale. So you just have to keep on flowing."

2. "Cease negative mental chattering. — If you think a thing is impossible, you'll make it impossible."

3. "Make at least one definite move daily toward your goal."

4. "There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them."

5. "What IS is more important than WHAT SHOULD BE."

6. "Balance your thoughts with action. — If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done."

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

8. "Life is better lived than conceptualized."

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

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

11. "Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your…

12. "If one loves, one need not have an ideology of

13. "As you think, so shall you become."

14. "It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.

15. "To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person."

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

17. "Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory."

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

19. "To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities."

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

21. "A f!ght is not won by one punch or kick. Either learn to endure or hire a bodyguard.

22. "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

23. "Do not pray for an easy life; pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.

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

25. "The happiness that is derived from excitement is like a brilliant fire — soon it will go out."

26. You have to keep your reflexes so that when you want it — it’s there."

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

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

29. "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."

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

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

One of my favorites (which wasn't posted on here for some reason) is "“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, 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.”".

Dopeness. :applause:

bruce was a g, heres some motivation for exercising



[pic - click to view]



“Bruce had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We’d run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a half minutes per mile]. So this morning he said to me “We’re going to go five.” I said, “Bruce, I can’t go five. I’m a helluva lot older than you are, and I can’t do five.” He said, “When we get to three, we’ll shift gears and it’s only two more and you’ll do it.” I said “Okay, hell, I’ll go for it.” So we get to three, we go into the fourth mile and I’m okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give out. I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him, “Bruce if I run any more,” —and we’re still running-“if I run any more I’m liable to have a heart attack and die.” He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles. Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, “Why did you say that?” He said, “Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it k!lls you, it k!lls you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”

Also I want to add:

"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." - Bruce Lee
