pointing the way

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

Endless Zangni said to Liu Zuhui: I have studied Nirvana for many years, but I still do n’t know much about it.

Hui Neng: I don't know words! Please read the Scriptures, and perhaps understand the truth below.

Endless Zany: How can you understand the truth without even knowing the word?

Hui: Truth has nothing to do with words! Truth is like the bright moon in heaven. The text is like your finger.

A finger can point to the moon, but the finger is not the moon,
and you don't have to look through the finger to see the moon, does it?

Is this post your realisation that Bruce Lee didn't actually come up with that line?

Yes, one of my students shared his translation of some of it.
Thought some might find it interesting

If one can do it,
they may not be able to explain it...but they can do it.

Bruce the King of plagiarism
All most all of his favourite quotes were lifted from somewhere else
That does not diminish their value
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form

All of his be formless spiel is lifted from 笑傲江湖。 although I have no clue whether Jin Yong came up with that on his own or borrowed from elsewhere
