“Nothingness cannot be defined; the softest thing cannot be snapped.”

Bruce Lee

“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.”

Bruce Lee

“Masters in all branches of art must first be masters of living, for the soul creates everything.”

Bruce Lee

“I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”

Bruce Lee

“Learning is important but do not become its slave. Above all, do not harbor anything external and superfluous–the mind is primary. Any technique, however worthy and desirable, becomes a disease when the mind is obsessed with it.”

Bruce Lee

“The wheel revolves when it is not too tightly attached to the axle. When the mind is tied up, it feels inhibited in every move it makes and nothing is accomplished with spontaneity. Its work will be of poor quality or it may never be finished at all.”

Bruce Lee

“The deluded mind is the mind effectively burdened by intellect. Thus, it cannot move without stopping and reflecting on itself. This obstructs its native fluidity.”
