Bruce Lee is highly regarded as one of the most influential martial artist of all time. His amazing physical features, fitness, and skills made him a cultural icon. But perhaps unknown to some is his mental strength that contributed much to his success. He believed that any knowledge ultimately led to self-knowledge, and said that his chosen method of self-expression was martial arts.

With a philosophy like that of Bruce Lee, anyone or whatever field they are in can become really successful. To techies who aspire to be a good programmer, scientist, or hacker, I have here some inspiring Bruce Lee quotes that you could learn from and could possibly lead you to greatness:

1. “It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.”

2. “All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.”

3. “If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

4. “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

5. “Showing off is the fool's idea of glory.”

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

7. “As you think, so shall you become.”

8. “If you make an ass out of yourself, there will always be someone to ride you.”

9. “Simplicity is the key to brilliance.”

10. “A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.”

11. “As long as I can remember I feel I have had this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence, greater than determination, greater than vision. It is all these combined. My brain becomes magnetized with this dominating force which I hold in my hand.”

12. “If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.”

13. “The possession of anything begins in the mind.”

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

15. “The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be.”
