Friendship often ends in love, but love in friendship - never.

Hardening of the heart ages people faster than hardening of the arteries.
None are homely who smile.
The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.
In order to love simply, it is necessary to know how to show love.
There is something inside all of us that yearns not for reason but for mystery, not for penetrating clear thought but for the whisperings of the irrational, not for science but for wizardry disguised as science, not for rationally founded influence but for magic.

Difficulties, by bracing the mind to overcome them, assist cheerfulness, as exercise assists digestion.
Christian Nestell Bovee
Learning is definitely not mere imitation or the ability to accumulate and conform to fixed knowledge. Learning is a constant process of discovery and never a concluding one. In JKD we begin not by accumulation but by discovering the cause of our ignorance, and oftentimes this involves a shedding process. Truth will not come until we have come to understand personally the whole process of the working of our being. After all, ultimately, knowledge in martial art simply means self-knowledge, and JKD can become intelligible only in the vigorous and constant process of self-inquiry and self-discovery.

People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals - that is, goals that do not inspire them.
What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Love is sweet, delicate, dreamy an eternity of gorgeous moments.
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
Optimists are right. So are pessimists. It's up to you to choose which you will be.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body, and be yet thankful.

We more frequently fail to face the right problem than fail to solve the problem we face.
Do you want a leg or a breast ?
Frances Stevens, To Catch A Thief (1955)
Fear nothing, for every renewed effort raises all former failures into lessons, all sins into experience.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain !
The Wizard Of Oz, The Wizard Of Oz (1939)
Above all, beware of compromises. Hold on to your own principles in weal or woe and never adjust them to others fads through the greed of getting supporters. Your atman is the support of the universe - whose support do you stand in need of ?
I think there is something, more important than believing : Action ! The world is full of dreamers, there aren't enough who will move ahead and begin to take concrete steps to actualize their vision.
W. Clement Stone
Continuous effort, not strength or intelligence, is the key to unlocking our potential.
For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.
The essence of romantic love is that wonderful beginning, after which sadness and impossibility may become the rule.

If thou must love me, let it be for nought, except for love's sake only. Do not say, I love her for her smile, her look, her way of speaking gently, for a trick of thought that falls in well with mine, and, certes, brought a sense of pleasant ease on such a day. For these things in themselves, beloved, may be changed, or change for thee, and love so wrought, may be unwrought so.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Self delusion is pulling in your stomach when you step on the scales.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another's heart, or its flame burns low.
Henry Ward Beecher
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are !
Adversity introduces a man to himself.
You always succeed in producing a result.
This is nothing !

We are born in relationship, we are wounded in relationship, and we can be healed in relationship.
The older I grow, the more everything seems to me to lie in manliness. This is my new gospel.
