There are many famous quotations by Bruce Lee, and one of the most famous quotes is his “Be Water, My Friend” quote from his interview with Pierre Berton show.

The video above contains the original source of the “Be Water” quote from the short-lived TV series “Longstreet”. The following is the original quote:

“If you try to remember you will lose! Empty your mind… be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or creep or drip or crash — be water my friend.”
