“When one has no form, one can be all forms; when one has no style, he can fit in with any style.”

This quote from Bruce Lee falls in line of his philosophy to “Be Like Water”. Water can take the form of shape of anything and in that sense can be any form. This can be applied to life in that you can absorb beauty and positive world-views from a plurality of sources, without feeling bogged down to one single point of view. Thereby you are able to continually learn and adapt in infinite ways.
