Here are some famous quotes by people you’ve probably heard of, among them Bruce Lee, surprisingly enough. Looks like the guy was good at a lot more than kicking.

Benjamin Franklin

  • Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.
  • Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

Another version of this is “Early to rise, and early to bed, makes a man healthy but socially dead”, which is supposedly a quote from the Animaniacs series.

  • He that can have patience can have what he will.
  • I didn’t fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.

A very similar quote, “I have not failed. Iโ€™ve just found 10,000 ways that wonโ€™t work”, is credited to Thomas Alva Edison. Franklin died almost 60 years before Edison was born, so I’m going to go ahead and guess that Franklin coined this one before Edison.

  • In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.
  • Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
  • There was never a bad peace or a good war.

Bill Gates

  • Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.
  • If you can’t make it good, at least make it look good.
  • Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.
  • Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.

Bob Marley

  • One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
  • Some people feel the rain. Other just get wet.
  • Love the life you live. Live the life you love.

Bruce Lee

  • A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often servers simply as something to aim at.
  • A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
  • Boards don’t hit back.
  • Defeat is not defeat unless accepted as a reality in your own mind.
  • If you don’t want to slip up tomorrow, speak the truth today.
  • The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.


  • A jug fills drop by drop.
  • There is no path to happiness, happiness is the path.
  • Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
  • The mind is everything. What you think you become.
  • The tongue is like a sharp knife… Kills without drawing blood.
