"Water is insubstantial. By this I mean you can not grasp hold of it. You can not punch it and hurt it. 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 water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow and it can crash...be water,my friend."
Bruce Lee quotes:

Optimism Is A Faith That Leads To Success

Pessimism Blunts The Tools You Need To Succeed

Character Is To The Soul What Outward Appearance Is To The Body

A Man Is Born To Achieve Great Things If He Has The Strength To Conquer Himself

It's Not What You Give, It's How You Give It

A Wise Man Can Learn More From A Foolish Question Than A Fool Can Learn From A Wise Answer

You Can Aquire A Lot In Life, If You Are prepared To Give Up A Lot To Get It

Those Who Are Unaware They Are Walking In Darkness Will Never See The Light

If You Want To Do Your Duty Properly, You Should Do Just A Little More Than That

Real Living Is Living For Others

Becoming A Human Being Is An Act

It's The Will That Makes Men - Success Takes Perserverance

A Goal Is Not Always Ment To Be Reached, It Often Serves Simply As Something To Aim At

Yesterday's Dreams Are Often Tomorrow's Realities

If You Don't Want To Slip Up Tomorrow, Speak The Truth Today

Self Education Makes Great Men

Mistakes Are Always Forgivable, If One Has The Courage To To Admit Them

If You Think Something Is Impossible, You'll Make It Impossible

If You Make An *** Off Yourself, There's Always Somebody Ready To Ride You

Patience Is Not Passive, On The Contrary It Is Concentrated Strength

It was obvious to the master from the start of the conversation that the professor was not so much interested in learning about Zen as he was in impressing the master with his own opinions and knowledge. As the Zen teacher explained, the learned man would frequently interrupt him with remarks like, "Oh, yes, we have that too..." and so on. Finally, the Zen teacher stopped talking and began to serve tea to the learned man. He poured the cup full, then kept pouring until the cup overflowed. "Enough!" the learned man once more interrupted. "The cup is overfull, no more will go in!" "Indeed, I see," answered the Zen teacher. "Like this cup, you are full of your own opinions and speculations. If you do not first empty your cup, how can you taste my cup of tea?"

The consciousness of self is the greatest hindrance to the proper execution of all physical action. There is no fixed teaching. All I can provide is an appropriate medicine for a particular ailment.

The aim of art is to project an inner vision into the world, to state in aesthetic creation the deepest psychic and personal experiences of a human being. It is to enable those experiences to be intelligible and generally recognized within the total framework of an ideal world.

Art is an expression of life and transcends both time and space. We must employ our own souls through art to give a new form and a new meaning to nature or the world. "Artless art" is the artistic process within the artist; its meaning is "art of the soul".

The art of Jeet Kune Do is simply to simplify. Jeet Kune Do avoids the superficial, penetrates the complex, goes to the heart of the problem and pinpoints the key factors. Empty your cup that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.

When there is freedom from mechanical conditioning, there is simplicity. The classical man is just a bundle of routine, ideas and tradition. If you follow the classical pattern, you are understanding the routine, the tradition, the shadow - you are not understanding yourself.

Truth has no path. Truth is living and, therefore, changing. Awareness is without choice, without demand, without anxiety; in that state of mind, there is perception. To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person. Awareness has no frontier; it is giving of your whole being, without exclusion.

A Jeet Kune Do man faces reality and not crystallization of form. The tool is a tool of formless form. Self-expression is total, immediate, without conception of time, and you can only express that if you are free, physically and mentally, from fragmentation.

The Jeet Kune Do man should be on the alert to meet the interchangeability of opposites. As soon as his mind "stops" with either of them, it loses its own fluidity. A Jeet Kune Do man should keep his mind always in the state of emptiness so that his freedom in action will never be obstructed.

Jeet Kune Do, ultimately, is not a matter of petty technique but of highly developed personal spirituality and physique. It is not a question of developing what has already been developed but of recovering what has been left behind. These things have been with us, in us, all the time and have never been lost or distorted except by our misguided manipulation of them. Jeet Kune Do is not a matter of technology but of spiritual insight and training.

The tools are at an undifferentiated center of a circle that has no circumference, moving and yet not moving, in tension and yet relaxed, seeing everything happening and yet not at all anxious about its outcome, with nothing purposely designed, nothing consciously calculated, no anticipation, no expectation - in short, standing innocently like a baby and yet, with all the cunning, subterfuge and keen intelligence of a fully mature mind.

"Using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation."

"All types of knowledge ultimately leads to self-knowledge."

"I am clever because I know the cause of my ignorance.."

"Knowing is not enough, we must apply; Willing is not enough, we must do.it "

"A martial artist is like water ,be flexible and adaptable to your opponent.."

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

"To me, ultimately ,martial arts means honestly expressing yourself."

"I cant teach you,only help you to explore yourself ,nothing more.."
