The martial artist Bruce Lee is still famous today, more than 40 years after his death, for his stunning physical speed and strength. Bruce Lee wisdom is known around the world. Some of his footage is still mesmerizing to watch, even in the modern age of special effects and CGI martial arts. But perhaps what he is most remembered for is his wisdom. Lee was known to say that “any knowledge can be applied to life in general,” and he applied that teaching to his own knowledge, branching out from martial arts into philosophy.
From that side of his experience comes one of our favorite quotes from Bruce Lee: “If you want to learn to swim, jump into the water. On dry land, no frame of mind is ever going to help you.”
The message that Lee is trying to impart is one of action: that if we seek some sort of result, we must avoid wasting time: we must simply begin. We hope our Brainscape followers can take some inspiration from this sentiment and apply it to all of the challenges facing you.
