Wise Words from Bruce Lee ..

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

As you think, so shall you become.

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

If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.

Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.

Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.

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

Obey the principles without being bound by them.

Real living is living for others.

Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.

Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than.
Be not for or against.

The possession of anything begins in the mind.

In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.

Time means a lot to me because you see I am also a learner and am often lost in the joy of forever developing.

If there is a God, he is within.
You don’t ask God to give you things, you depend on God for your inner theme.

If you don’t want to slip up tomorrow, speak the truth today.

Art calls for complete mastery of techniques, developed by reflection within the soul

To spend time is to pass it in a specified manner.
To waste time is to expend it thoughtlessly or carelessly.
We all have time to either spend or waste and it is our decision what we do with it.
But once passed, it is gone forever.

For it is easy to criticize and break down the spirit of others, but to know yourself takes a lifetime.

Defeat is not defeat unless accepted as a reality in your own mind.

Everything you do, if not in a relaxed state will be done at a lesser level that you are proficient.

Using no way as a way, having no limitation as limitation.

Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later the man who wins, is the man who thinks he can.

Moving, be like water.
Still, be like a mirror.

Respond like an echo.

The idea is that flowing water never goes stale, so just keep on flowing.

As long as I can remember I feel I have had this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence, greater than determination, greater than vision.
It is all these combined.
My brain becomes magnetized with this dominating force which I hold in my hand.

The spirit of the individual is determined by his dominating thought habits.

Those who are unaware they are walking in darkness will never seek the light.

Never waste energy on worries or negative thoughts.
All problems are brought into existence – drop them.

Victory is for the one, even before the combat, who has no thought of himself.

The eyes see it, but no hands can take hold of it.
The moon in the stream.

Clouds and mists, they are midair transformations, above them eternally shine the sun and the moon.

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

Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.

Be happy, but never satisfied.

Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.

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

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.

To hell with circumstances, I create opportunities.

The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.

A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.

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

If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.

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.

Just be ordinary and nothing special.
Eat your food, move your bowels, pass water.
And when you’re tired, go and lie down.
The ignorant will laugh at me, but the wise will understand.

Wise Words From Buddha ..

Virtue is persecuted more by the wicked than it is loved by the good.

Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.

There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.

When one has the feeling of dislike for evil.
When one feels tranquil.

One finds pleasure in listening to good teachings.
When one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.

To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.

Work out your own salvation.
Do not depend on others.

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.

With our thoughts we make the world.

Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care.
For people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.

You will not be punished for your anger.
You will be punished by your anger.

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

The mind is everything.
What you think, you become.

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds.
And wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind.
To walk safely through the maze of human life.
One needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

Do not dwell in the past.
Do not dream of the future.

Concentrate the mind on the present moment.

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast.
A wild beast may wound your body.
But an evil friend will wound your mind.

The way is not in the sky.
The way is in the heart.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else.
You are the one who gets burned.

Health is the greatest gift.
Contentment the greatest wealth.

Faithfulness the best relationship.

When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all.
One must first discipline and control one’s own mind.
If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment.
And all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

Three things cannot be long hidden.
The sun, the moon, and the truth.

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles.
Then the victory is yours.
It cannot be taken from you.
Not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

However many holy words you read.
However many you speak.

What good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.

I never see what has been done.
I only see what remains to be done.

No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may.

We ourselves must walk the path.

Buddha
