List of Bruce Lee quotes.

A fight is not won by one punch or kick. Either learn to endure or hire a bodyguard.


Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, 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.


Knowing is not enough, you must apply; willing is not enough, you must do.
