Bruce Lee was more than just an inspiration to martial artists; he motivated people in general with famous quotes like "be like water". Bruce Lee said to "empty your mind", and explained that a person should be "formless" like water. Lee said that because water has no shape, it becomes whatever it is poured into, whether it be a cup, a bottle, or a teapot. Lee went on to say, "water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend".
