Bruce Lee Mantra.

Bruce Lee Signed Authentic Book Cover.

“A wise man can learn more from a foolish question, than a fool can learn, from a wise answer”. A quote attributed to Bruce Lee. Very telling. Most quotes from Martial Artist Bruce Lee, are pertaining to the art of hand to hand combat and the attitude necessary for success. Few deal with such basic life necessities. He may have repeated a quote he had heard growing up. He obviously believed it true as it stuck with him throughout his life. His code of honor, his mantra for life encompassed many beliefs. He read he sat at the feet of other great men and more importantly he soaked in what he felt was good advice, and was quick to go his own way. “Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.” An individual, a free thinker, who fervently believed in creative thought. The book written by one of the great, instructors, author, and administrators, Hidetaka Nishiyama, called Karate, the Art of “Empty Hand” Fighting, is a well illustrated volume as to the suggested proper technique to be used by students. In Bruce Lee’s personal edition of this book he has the confidence, and the knowledge to illustrate alongside the black and white photo illustrations, the method of strike he believes better than illustrated. We know it is his personal edition as he has signed the Title page “Property of Bruce Lee” adding his name in Chinese characters also. “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.” Always searching, always looking for a better way and not afraid to share his knowledge with others. He is the complete opposite of the expression those who can’t…..teach. Bruce Lee's quotes on life still teach us today.
