Bruce Lee – Be Water My Friend (Both Versions)

2013-11-12 (Tuesday) by Mikael Linusson

As there are two versions of this famous Bruce Lee quote, and because many people misquote them, I decided to post the correct versions here. :)

The first one is from Longstreet (the TV series).

"Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. Putting it into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow, or creep, or drip, or crash. Be water my friend" -Bruce Lee (From Longstreet)


And the second one is from the famous interview by Pierre Berton.

"Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, 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 (From the Interview)



Be water my friend! :)
