“The martial arts are based upon understanding, hard work and a total comprehension of skills. Power training and the use of force are easy, but total comprehension of all of the skills of the martial arts is very difficult to achieve.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Once I slow down because I think I have reached my peak, then my skills will go nowhere but down”

 

Bruce Lee

“The knowledge and skills you have achieved are meant to be forgotten so you can float comfortably in emptiness, without obstruction.”

 

Bruce Lee

“It is true that the mental aspect of kung-fu is the desired end; however, to achieve this end, technical skill must come first.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Training is one of the most neglected phases of athletics. Too much time is given to the development of skill and too little to the development of the individual for participation.”

 

Bruce Lee

“If you tell your own story to your children – that includes your positive moments and your negative moments, and how you overcame them – you give your children the skills and the confidence they need to feel like they can overcome some hardship that they’ve felt.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“When faced with a challenge, happy families, like happy people, just add a new chapter to their life story that shows them overcoming the hardship. This skill is particularly important for children, whose identity tends to get locked in during adolescence.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“I’m sick of over-trained heroes. I’m really bored with that. Guys that are just ripped to shreds and full of skills. That’s boring me. Give me the mechanic that picks up a weapon. Now I’m interested. That’s my hero.”

 

Bruce Campbell

“The five steps in teaching an employee new skills are preparation, explanation, showing, observation and supervision.”

Bruce Barton

“We had discussions at the Department of Defense on the issues of utilizing and requesting the full skill of United States capabilities, both on the soft side and on the side of providing logistics and technical expertise… And, we as a country are extremely pleased with the announcement that we have heard, and we look forward to that cooperation as expeditiously as we can.”

Brownie Samukai

“Some critics of racing witlessly claim that spectators only attend to see someone die. This is utter and complete nonsense. I have been at numerous races where death is present. When a driver dies, the crowd symbolically dies, too. They come to see action at the brink: ultimate risk taking and the display of skill and bravery embodied in the sport’s immortals like Nuvolari, Foyt, and thousands of others who operate at the ragged edge.”

 

Brock Yates

“If you’ve been told all your life that you’re good-looking, people just flock around you and you never really have to try or have to learn an interesting craft, skill or hobby – or even have depth.”

 

Brittany Daniel

“Meryl Streep’s got talent, she’s got skills. I’m sure she wants to be on ‘Cougar Town,’ right?”

 

Brian Van Holt

“Your greatest asset is your earning ability, to apply your knowledge, skills in order to get results which others will pay.”

 

Brian Tracy

“All skills are learnable.”

 

Brian Tracy

“Your ability to select your most important task at each moment, and then to get started on that task and to get it done both quickly and well, will probably have more of an impact on your success than any other quality or skill you can develop.”

 

Brian Tracy

“Your earning ability today is largely dependent upon your knowledge, skill and your ability to combine that knowledge and skill in such a way that you contribute value for which customers are going to pay.”

 

Brian Tracy

“I always say there are two things to be successful. The first is decide exactly what you want – set your goals – and then determine how you will achieve them (what skills you will have to learn, what actions will you have to take). And these are totally under your control. These are not dependent upon anyone else.”

 

Brian Tracy

“Your ability to work with others on a complex task is a critical skill for advancement at work.”

 

Brian Tracy

“Communication is a skill that you can learn. It’s like riding a bicycle or typing. If you’re willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of every part of your life.”
