Bruce didn’t subscribe to a dogma of any kind.
Although he was an avid reader of religion, philosophy, and martial arts, he viewed religious or philosophical ideologies at best only as signposts pointing to the truth, but not as the truth itself.
The truth for him was multi-...
Martial arts was not merely a competitive sport for Bruce Lee, but in essence a means of self-discovery and self-expression.
By learning to fight, he was able to better understand who he was — he could force himself out of his comfort zone, test his limits, and confront his fears.
For Bruce Lee, knowledge that isn't applied is useless, for it serves no actual purpose.
“It is not daily increase but daily decrease, hack away the unessential. The closer to the source, the less wastage there is.”
“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
Bruce Lee pointed out that in order for a relationship to go on past that stage of initial excitement, plenty of time is required. Once this happens, love can grow deeper and take root in two people's hearts.
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire."
Bruce Lee saw life as being in constant change.
Unless we learn to adapt to it, we’re bound to experience tremendous resistance that will entrap us in a constant state of suffering.
Bruce Lee saw life as an ongoing journey to wisdom.
Through everyday experiences, including mistakes, you get to better understand who you are.
Live life, Laugh hard, Love selflessly, Serve God.
