Here are several of my favorites from Bruce Lee:

"Just as yellow leaves may be gold coins to stop the crying children, thus, the so-called secret moves and contorted postures appease the unknowledgeable martial artists."


"One can function freely and totally if he is 'beyond system'. The man who is really serious, with the urge to find out what the truth is, has no style at all. He lives only with what is."


"Instead of facing combat in it's suchness, then, most systems of martial art accumulate a 'fancy mess' that distorts and cramps their practitioners and distracts them from the actual reality of combat, which is simple and direct. Instead of going immediately to the heart of things, flowery forms (organized dispair) and artificial techniques are ritualistically practiced to simulate actual combat. Thus, instead of 'being' in combat, these practitioners are 'doing' something 'about' combat."


"Truth is a pathless land." - J. Krishnamurti
