Ronin69: Nice to see wisdom being gleaned from such esoteric sources as "The Golden Child"
As a student of one of those "anachronistic" martial arts, I find this quote to be motivating:
Zhu Pingman went to the eminent butcher, Zhilli Yi, to learn to carve dragons for the table. He studied for more than three years and spent all of his very considerable property before he mastered the subject, but he never found a dragon on which to practice his art.

Method, which is in its very substance ignorance, encloses truth within a vicious circle. -lee
This one is the most important. Methods, styles, systems, governments are all diseases of the mind, born out of a desire to control and fear of confronting reality.
To reiterate: METHOD IS IGNORANCE. Trying to make something into a method, system, etc. just shows your ignorance.
