Bruce Lee

When someone says the name , we immediately think of and of a thin, wiry man chopping down his enemies with quick movements of his hand and feet.

I recently came across a few quotes by this phenomenal movie star and found that he was quite a great , thinker and guru. Some of his best quotes are:

  • A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
  • If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what is made up of.
  • Showing off is the fool's idea of glory.
  • A is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.
  • I'm not in this world to live up to your expectations and you're not in this world to live up to mine.
  • A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.

I have read that he has authored some as well. Have you read any by Bruce Lee?

I saw a documentary about him one time long ago. It mentioned how he was a philosopher. I thought that was interesting about him.

No, I've never read his books. However, I do remember watching him on TV when he was relatively unknown: playing Kato on the TV series The Green Hornet.

It is amazing how these celebrities are not just actors. Some I see are great cooks, great gardeners and so on.
