LEE. “The key to immortality is living a life worth remembering.”

There was more to Bruce Lee than his fighting skills—as these quotes from him prove:

Always be yourself; express yourself. Don’t go looking for a successful personality and merely duplicate it.


Mistakes are always forgivable if you have the courage to admit them!

If you spend too much time thinking about something, you’ll never get it done!


I do not fear the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear someone who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

The key to immortality is living a life worth remembering.

Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.

I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you’re not in this world to live up to mine!

Showing off is a fool’s idea of glory.

A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.

Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless—and add what is specifically your own!
