Bruce Lee is a name that needs no introduction. His legacy is still alive and as fresh as it was at the peak of his career.

Besides being a legendary martial artist who founded the hybrid style fighting, Jeet Kun Do, Lee was also a renowned filmmaker and philosopher.

As the world celebrates the 75th birth anniversary of Bruce Lee, here are some of his most famous and popular quotes.

"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it."

"Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable."

"A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer."

"If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them."

"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is made up of."

"I fear not the man who has practised 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practised one kick 10,000 times."

"Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them."

"If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done."

"Knowledge will give you power, but character respect."

"To me, the extraordinary aspect of martial arts lies in its simplicity. The easy way is also the right way, and martial art is nothing at all special; the closer to the true way of martial arts, the less wastage of expression there is."
