Simplicity is the last step of art.

The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.

Empty your mind. Become formless and shapeless like water. When water is poured into a cup, it becomes the cup. When water is poured into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Be water, my friend.

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.

Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.

A quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.

Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.
