“I wanted a perfect ending.

Now I’ve learned,

the hard way,

that some poems don’t rhyme,

and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end.

Life is about not knowing,

having to change,

taking the moment and making the best of it,

without knowing what’s going to happen next.

Delicious Ambiguity.”

“Be like water making its way through cracks.

 

Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it.

If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water.

If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.

You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle.

You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.

 

Now, water can flow or it can crash.

 

Be water, my friend.”

 

[ Bruce Lee née Lee Jun-fan ]
