Bruce Lee Melody

I am not a martial artist and I doubt I really ever will be.  But back in the day, after I was a Christian (~2002) before I was an atheist (~2007), I picked up Bruce Lee’s book Jeet Kun Do: Commentaries on the Martial Way thinking it would teach me something about Jeet Kune Do.  How to move my fists, feet, body, be cool, etc.  When I saw the book’s title in the store the “Commentaries on the Martial Way” were in little letters so I didn’t read them.  It didn’t take me long to realize I had purchased a compilation of Bruce Lee’s philosophical notes related to martial arts.  The martial way, training, motivation, teaching, and more in the form of short quotes or page-long notes.  It was a good accidental find for me in a shiftless period and got me into kung fu movies.
