    The Best Bruce Lee Quotes

  • Mark Finn

    The first kung fu movie I remember watching was Enter the Dragon. There's something hypnotic about Bruce Lee and of course, the legends that surround him.

  • Patti Noe

    "Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and 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." ~ Bruce Lee
