Wise Words ~ mystic poet


Li Mu Bai[edit]
· No growth without resistance. No action without reaction. No desire without restraint. Now give yourself up and find yourself again.
· The things we touch have no permanence. My master would say: there is nothing we can hold onto in this world. Only by letting go can we truly possess what is real.
· [to Yu Shu Lien] Crouching tigers and hidden dragons are in the underworld… but so are human feelings.
· [to Yu Shu Lien] I’ve already wasted my whole life. I want to tell you with my last breath that I have always loved you. I would rather be a ghost, drifting by your side as a condemned soul, than enter heaven without you. Because of your love, I will never be a lonely spirit.
