Bruce Lee

“Give up thinking as though not giving it up. Observe techniques as though not observing.”


Bruce Lee

“The highest technique is to have no technique. My technique is a result of your technique; my movement is a result of your movement.”

“Massage’s history is rooted in technique and body knowledge, but is also about heart, healing intention and connection between therapist and client. A tension – sometimes constructive, other times uncomfortable – has been prevalent in the field between one impulse toward structure and recognition and another toward freedom and flexibility to be responsive to individual circumstances”


Bob Benson

“The lesson here, and my advice for other developers, is to find a way that you can quantify for people what your product is worth. We were leery to do it ourselves, but being near Vetro when they did, the auction was a good technique for that. No one wants to be first, and the auction proved to people that others were buying and gave them that boost of confidence they needed.”


Bob Horner

“Jazz is musical humor. The noun jazz describes a modern American technique for the playing of any music, accompanied by noise called harmony, and interpolated instrumental effects.

Bill Bruford

“I’m good at killing, I’m known as a bullfighter who kills well, and that I can kill well, that I can compete technically with my male peers in my technique in killing, gives me satisfaction.”


Bette Ford

“The most essential characteristic of scientific technique is that it proceeds from experiment, not from tradition.”


Bertrand Russell

“If the West can claim superiority in anything, it is . . . in science and scientific technique.”


Bertrand Russell

“The pursuit of knowledge is, I think, mainly actuated by love of power. And so are all advances in scientific technique.”


Bertrand Russell
