Be like water, my friend

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 tea pot, it becomes the tea pot
water can flow
or it can crash
be water my friend

— Bruce Lee


Guests in Your Living Room

Your mind is like a living room. Sometimes guests arrive and sit down. Sometimes you realize that you don’t like them, that you don’t enjoy their company. Eventually they leave. And you vow to be more careful about the people you invite. Learning whom to invite is an art.

— Thich Nhat Hanh
