All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.
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.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against.
Take things as they are. Punch when you have to punch. Kick when you have to kick.
The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be.
As you think, so shall you become.
~ Bruce Lee
