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


― Bruce Lee

"Real living is living for others."

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

Bruce Lee
"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."

Bruce Lee 
“To spend time is to pass it in a specified manner. To waste time is to expend it thoughtlessly or carelessly. We all have time to either spend or waste and it is our decision what to do with it. But once passed, it is gone forever.”

Bruce Lee
"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."

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

Bruce Lee
"You just wait. I'm going to be the biggest Chinese Star in the world."

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

Bruce Lee
"It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential."

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

Bruce Lee 
"To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities."

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

Bruce Lee 
"I'm not in this world to live up to your expectations and you're not in this world to live up to mine."

Bruce Lee 
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
Do not be tense, just be ready, not thinking but not dreaming, not being set but being flexible. It is being "wholly" and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come. The danger of training with the heavy bag is that it doesn't react to one’s attack and sometimes there is a tendency to thoughtlessness. One will punch the bag carelessly, and would be vulnerable in a real situation if this became a habit.

Bruce Lee

Question: What are your thoughts when facing an opponent? 
Bruce: There is no opponent. 
Question: Why is that? 
Bruce: Because the word ''l'' does not exist. A good fight should be like a small play...but played seriously. When the opponent expands, l contract. When he contracts, l expand. And when there is an opportunity... l do not hit...it hits all by itself (shows his fist). Any technique, however worthy and desirable, becomes a disease when the mind is obsessed with it.

“To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”

Bruce Lee
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done. Make at least one definite move daily toward your goal.”

Bruce Lee
“A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.”

Bruce Lee
“In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup.”

Bruce Lee
“I am not teaching you anything. I just help you to explore yourself.”

Bruce Lee
“Choose the positive. You have choice, you are master of your attitude, choose the positive, the constructive. Optimism is a faith that leads to success.”

Bruce Lee
"If you think a thing is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.”

Bruce Lee
“Simplicity is the key to brilliance.”

Bruce Lee

    2. Well nobody knows for sure, for sure. But it's more than likely. People closely associated with him have said he did, and he was on a bunch of pain killers and whatnot which may have caused his death.

      Keep in mind, when he was alive, steroids weren't banned and nobody really knew of the negatives with them. There'd be no reason for him not to use them.
