Bruce Lee quotes “Always be yourself”

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.

-Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee quotes “Be Water my friend”

“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

老子曰:『做人如水,做事如山。』

做人如水,
你高,我便退去, 決不淹沒你的優點;你低,我便湧來, 決不暴露你的缺陷;
你動,我便隨行, 決不撇下你的孤單;你靜,我便長守, 決不打擾你的安寧;
你熱,我便沸騰, 決不妨礙你的熱情;你冷,我便凝固, 決不漠視你的寒冷。

上善若水,從善如流, 如水人生,隨緣而安。
做人如水:能適應任何環境,就像水一樣,能包容萬物,本身卻非常的純靜;
做事如山:要踏踏實實的做事,像山一樣穩重,像山一樣給人以信任!
做人像水。水,動中有靜,靜中有動,一切都是因為它柔美、滋潤。

老子說:“上善若水。水善利萬物而不爭,處眾人之所惡,故幾於道。居善地,心善淵,與善仁,言善信,正善治,事善能,動善時。夫唯不爭,故無尤。”既弘揚水的精神,也道出了一種處世哲學:做人應該像水一樣,要有極大的可塑性。因為水性柔而能變形。在海洋中是海洋之形,在江河中是江河之形,在杯盤中是杯盤之形,在瓶罐中是瓶罐之形。

做人應該像水一樣,至柔之中又有至剛、至淨、能容、能大的胸襟和氣度。

古人有一副對聯:“水唯能下方成海,山不矜高自及天。”

做事像山。山因形走勢,因勢走形,一切皆因之挺拔、高峻。
山,從千峰崢嶸、萬壑競秀、雲海飛瀑、蜿蜒起伏中展示大氣磅礴;山,從雲蒸霞蔚、煙霧繚繞或澄澈清淨中透出闊遠幽、空靈清秀。所以做事,就要像山一樣,要有山的胸懷,山的風骨,山的品格,山的內涵和山的原則。

古人云:“海納百川,有容乃大;壁立千仞,無欲則剛。”

人一旦能夠做到虛懷若谷,便能夠匯集百河而成為汪洋;人如能做到無欲無爭,便能如峭壁一般,屹立雲霄。

所以,我覺得“做人如水,做事如山”內存玄機和巧妙,短短八個字,既說明瞭如何做人,又說出了一個人應如何做事。

一個人只有經歷了漫長的人生跋涉後,才最終明白,生命的意義,其實並不在於獲得,而在於放下。
