Bruce Lee On Water

Water is deceiving by its very nature.

The legendary martial artist, philosopher and actor, Bruce Lee, once took a break from his meditation and gung fu practice and went sailing. At that time he was just a teenager, displaying his teenage angst by punching water with his fist.

He was surprised at the soft water taking his blow effortlessly. He tried to grasp water with his bare hands but it slipped through. Bruce Lee was intrigued by the nature of water, realizing that though it looks frail and meek, it can defeat the hardest substance in the world.
