Nowadays you don't go around on the street kicking people, punching people — because if you do, well that's it — I don't care how good you are.
In Jeet Kune Do, it's not how much you have learned, but how much you have absorbed from what you have learned. It is not how much fixed knowledge you can accumulate, but what you can apply livingly that counts. 'Being' is more valued than doing.
To realize freedom the mind has to learn to look at life, which is a vast movement, without the bondage of time, for freedom lies beyond the field of consciousness — care for watching, but don't stop and interpret I am free, then you're living in a memory of something that has gone before.
Ideas are the beginning of all achievement.
