Bruce Lee quotes

No music this time, just some of my favorite Bruce Lee quotes because I feel like it=]

* “The “moment” has no yesterday or tomorrow. It is not the result of thought and therefore has no time.”

* “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough: we must do.”

* “Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.”

* “The measure of the moral worth of a man is his happiness. The better the man, the more happiness. Happiness is the synonym of well-being”

* ” Real living is living for others.”

* “Defeat is a state of mind; no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.”

* “Never waste energy on worries or negative thoughts, all problems are brought into existence -drop them.”

* “A goal is not always meant to be reached. It often serves simply as something to aim at.”

* “Because one does not want to be disturbed, to be made uncertain, he establishes a pattern of conduct, of thought, a pattern of relationship to man etc. Then he becomes a slave to the pattern and takes the pattern to be the real thing.”

* “Zen is not “attained” by mirror-wiping mediation, but by “self-..forgetfulness in the existential ‘present’ of life here and now.” We do not “come”, we “are.” Don’t strive to become, but be.”

* “Those who are unaware they are walking in darkness will never seek the light.”

* “Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”

* “To grow, to discover, we need involvement which is something I experience everyday, sometimes good, sometimes frustrating.”
