brucelee RIP Bruce Lee   He Died On This Day 37 Years Ago

He was not only arguably the greatest martial artist we’ve ever seen, but also a philosopher, teacher, humanitarian, loving family man and a cultural icon. Here’s five great quotes from the man himself…..RIP!

”Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successfull personality and duplicate it.”

”Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one’s potential.”

”To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities”

”If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

”I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”
