"...ready, but not tense. when my opponent contracts, I expand. When expands, I contract. And when I see the opportunity to hit. I do not hit. It hits by itself."

It's from Enter the Dragon:

"A good fight should be... like a small play — but played seriously. A good martial artist does not become tense — but ready. Not thinking — yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands — I contract. When he contracts — I expand. And when there is an opportunity... I do not hit. "It" hits all by itself."

I like this one too, also from Bruce Lee:

“A fight is not won by one punch or kick. Either learn to endure or hire a bodyguard. Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life. Do not be concerned with escaping safely – lay your life before him.”

:slap: Don't think! Feeeeeeel! It is like a finger pointing away to the moon. :slap: Don't concentrate on the finger, or you miss all that heavenly glory.

I've got the Tao of Jeet Kune Do at home, almost every line in it is inspiring or relates really well to life.
