Bruce Lee was a terrific martial artist and I really enjoyed his acting. But, he had a lot of insight into life as well. Here’s one of my favorites.

Other than some fresh biscuits with butter and jelly, this is a good way to start a morning. According to George Eliot, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”

Mickey Rooney’s epitaph: “I tried.”

Mickey Rooney passed away yesterday. He said he wanted this simple epitaph on his gravestone: “I tried.” May we all feel that way at the end of our days.

Nikola Tesla: I don’t care that they stole my idea …. I care that they don’t have any of their own.

Early this morning I was watching a program about Nikola Tesla on the History Channel. Naturally, later sitting here at the desk I got the bright idea of surfing around for some more Tesla and found some quotations. The one I really liked is this.

I don’t care that they stole my idea …. I care that they don’t have any of their own.

I wasn’t able to do much to verify it. It’s out there and attributed to Tesla and I like it. Tesla, what a genius! And, he claimed to have done it all on no more than two hours of sleep a day.
