  1. 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.
  2. I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practices one kick 10,000 times.
  3. Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.
  4. What you habitually think largely determines what you will ultimately become.
  5. You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.
  6. If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.
  7. Don’t neglect life by worrying about Death.
  8. Take things as they are. Punch when you have to punch. Kick when you have to kick.

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

  21. Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.
  22. Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.

  30. The possession of anything begins in the mind.
  31. The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment.

  45. Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life! Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!

  63. The man who is really serious, with the urge to find out what truth is, has no style at all. He lives only in what is.
  64. If you don’t want to slip up tomorrow, speak the truth today.
