Bruce Lee had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We’d run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a half minutes per mile]. So this morning he said to me “We’re going to go five.” I said, “Bruce, I can’t go five. I’m a helluva lot older than you are, and I can’t do five.” He said, “When we get to three, we’ll shift gears and it’s only two more and you’ll do it.” I said “Okay, hell, I’ll go for it.” So we get to three, we go into the fourth mile and I’m okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give out. I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him, “Bruce if I run any more,” –and we’re still running-”if I run any more I’m liable to have a heart attack and die.” He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles. Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, “Why did you say that?” He said, “Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.

Anonymous asked: I'm so bored with my life I don't know what to do. I'm feeling so ugh like everything is meaningless. I want so many things and I can't have them and it's so frustrating. I don't know why I'm telling you this. I guess I just needed to tell someone that I'm dying slowly.


Answer:

There are pletny of things in life that make it worthwhile.

Think about what you were saying earlier, about the “things” you were wanting. Were they physical things, or were they things you want emotionally, like a person’s affection?

In the end, our desire to have more possessions is pretty hollow. Financial security aside, physical things aren’t what we really need in life (unless those things are physical necessities). 

A lot of the time, we think we are dying, but that is because we aren’t letting ourselves life. If you feel that you are without, it is because you simply haven’t found what makes you come alive, yet. In the end, that itself is even more exciting, finding what makes you excited to get up every day.

Make that your goal. The rest will fall together somehow.

the funniest thing is that the tattoo actually reads “part of an asshole race”

I guess it’s more like ‘racist ahole’?

Nice

The question I’d like to ask is this:

Were the writers aware or did their translator basically tell them to go screw themselves here.

I like how the original title for The Fault in Our Stars is all poetic and then the Norwegians just translated it to “fuck destiny” and I think that’s beautiful

Aw man, I thought for sure this had to be bullshit but nope


Why is it always Norway

Norway, a nation where you can put the word “fuck” on the cover of a young adult novel.
