The wisest and most beautiful thing he ever said, he expressed through the fine medium of buttkicking!
I jest of course. I think it is a shame that Mr Lee did not live longer, since I often wonder what the world would be like, if he were still around,
and every time I get to thinking along those lines, I come to the conclusion that it would be better.
I mean, for all that he could leap through the air and decapitate a person with a foot to the face, he was, by all accounts, a supremely chilled out
guy. With all the total lethality he had at his disposal, he made art! With all the destructive capacity he had, it was his control over that ability
that was jaw dropping. Personally, I believe that in terms of raw philosophy, there are greater individuals in history, and there are even greater
But in terms of being a complete person, a person who inspires, a person who has actually placed their philosophy at the centre of their actual
composition as a being, a person who, despite having a philosophy, did not engage in so much navel gazing that he forgot to nourish his body as well
as his mind...You cannot top Bruce Lee. When I am long dead, they will still speak his name, know his words, and attempt to emulate his moves.
