    Guess what? That quote is NOT originally from Bruce Lee.

    Bruce Lee stole that from Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, a German writer and artist who Albert Einsten greatly admired. Einstein apparently read Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe's writings very often.


    There are more examples I will find. I guess Bruce thought it was so obscure that nobody would notice. LOL !
    Bruce Lee also majored in western philosiphy.

    I doubt that guy was some LARPing douche bag. But hotdamm if his followers arent.

    This was not a point previously mentioned, but I apologize if reading the one other sentence I wrote that echoed a previous poster's sentiment was a great strain on you.
    Jesus, did you just summarise again what was in the thread already and try to use that as evidence that I struggle with reading comprehension? Brilliant.

    Dude, nothing Bruce Lee said or did was really all that original. He just popularized it. Get over yourself.

    Did you just repeat your initial incorrect assessment after I demonstrated that it was incorrect, instead of just dropping it? Fascinating.

    Also, plagiarising Einstein? Haha...oh you fool:

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    Did you just attempt to copy my form of biting intellectual satire while simultaneously and irrevocably proving yourself unworthy of such a high form of wit? Interesting.
