Read this before, but came across it again today in the book "Bruce Lee Artist of Life" and it all of a sudden struck me as rather Daoist so I thought I'd share it

“Just be ordinary and nothing special. Eat your food, move your bowels, pass water, and when you’re tired go and lie down. The ignorant will laugh at me, but the wise will understand.” - Master Lin-Chi

Linji Yixuan (Master Lin-Chi) was the founder of the Linji school of Chan Buddhism during Tang Dynasty China.

“Let your Ki flow like a river, and never let it stop. Getting stuck on something, whether good or bad, is never good. The past does not return. Only human beings cling to the past. The universe never ceases.”
- K. Tohei

On the opposite side of every front, there is a back; on the opposite side of every back, there is a front. One cannot exist without the other. Yet human beings invariably tend to see only the front and to assume that this is all that exists. -- Masahiro Mori,
