“Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.”

“If you truly love life, don’t waste time; because time is what life is made of.”

“To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”

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

“As you think, so shall you become.”

– Bruce Lee

Editor’s Note:

The only thing I would add, which is arguably also his most famous quote which is oddly missing, is Lee’s ‘Be Like Water’ adage, which says:

“Empty your mind. Be formless. Shapeless. Like water. You put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
