Bruce Lee's philosophies have inspired millions of people the world over. He was a diligent journaler Bruce Lee Wisdom for the Way · Bruce Lee Artist of Life. When you have finished this book, you will know Bruce Lee better, but hopefully The classical wing chun style that started him on his way was developed years . Wisdom does not consist of trying to wrest the good from the evil but in.
Every man today is the result of his thoughts of yesterday. Earl Nightingale—a guy credited as one of the founding fathers of Personal Development—says that the single biggest realization of his life was this: We become what we think about. If we think big, we become big.
If we think small, we become small. The steps go like this: First, you think about what you want. Second, you take action on what you thought about. The result?
My ailment came from within myself, but I did not observe it, until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, consuming myself. But sooner or later the man who wins, is the man who thinks he can.
Punch when you have to punch. Kick when you have to kick. Hack away at the unessential.
This difference between self-actualization and self-image actualization is very important. Most people live only for their image. Willing is not enough, we must do. It is like ice dissolving in water. When one has no form, one can be all forms; when one has no style, he can fit in with any style. In combat, without the prior attributes, a strong man will be like the bull with its colossal strength futilely pursuing the matador or like a low-geared truck chasing a rabbit.
There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns. This writing can be less demanding should I allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation.
If you have to think, you still do not understand. There is no border, no frontier. The easy way is also the right way, and martial arts is nothing at all special; the closer to the true way of martial arts, the less wastage of expression there is.
When you know yourself but not your opponent, you will win one and lose one. However, when you do not know yourself or your opponent, you will be imperiled every time.
Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.
I just help you to explore yourself. 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!!
Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment. They want to get ahead, to stand out. Such ambition has no use for a gung fu man, who rejects all forms of self-assertiveness and competition.
Then he becomes a slave to the pattern and takes the pattern to be the real thing. In this world there are a lot of people who cannot touch the heart of the matter but talk merely intellectually not emotionally about how they would do this or do that; talk about it, but yet nothing is ever actualized or accomplished. Let go. An intelligent mind is constantly learning. Above all, do not harbor anything external and superfluous, the mind is the primary.
The thought of a distracted mind cannot be sincere. Concepts vs. You only explain. When a man is thinking he stands off from what he is trying to understand. Balance your thoughts with action. The process of maturing does not mean to become a captive of conceptualization. It is to come to the realization of what lies in our innermost selves. Abstract analysis is not the answer. To stand on the outside and try to look inside is futile; whatever was there will go away.
Analyze it, and it is gone. The value of ideas. Four idea principles. A five-step process to formulating ideas. Gather materials. Masticate the facts. Relax and drop the whole subject.

Bruce Lee — Wisdom for the Way
But most of all, I like books. I read all types of books — fiction and nonfiction. The more we value things, the less we value our selves. So it is true that the more we value things, the less we value our self. The more we depend upon others for esteem, the less we are self-sufficient. Let friendships develop on their own.
On organized religion. I believe that life is a process and that man is a self-made product. The spirit of the individual is determined by his dominating thought habits.
To flow like water. The idea is not to overdevelop or to overexert, but to normalize the function of the body.
Absence in love. Young love vs. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. You are judged by your acts. The nature of education.
The value of self education.

Sincere students are rare. Many of them are five minute enthusiasts, some of them come in with ill intentions, but unfortunately, most of them are second-hand artists; basically conformers.
Never waste energy on worries and negative thoughts. What do I live on? Sure my back screwed me up good for a year but with every adversity comes a blessing because a shock acts as a reminder to oneself that we must not get stale in routine. Your child is ill you say, or you cannot pay the rent? Very well, accept these facts and face them.
Are they not trouble enough in themselves without adding the aggravation of worry to them? You cannot clear muddied water with your hand.
But if allowed to remain still, it will become clear of itself. Who is there that can secure a state of absolute repose? But keep calm and let time go on, and the state of repose will gradually arrest.OPEN yourself and flow, my friend.
There is no actor but the action — there is no experiencer but experience. Uncovers the lead side of the body. A wonderful book with beautiful quotes, compiled by Shannon Lee.
