Lee[edit]

  • A good fight should be like a small play, but played seriously. A good martial artist does not become tense, but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands, I contract. When he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, I do not hit. It hits all by itself. (to his teacher)
  • What was that? An exhibition? We need emotional content. Now try again!
  • I said emotional content. Not anger! Now try again! With me!
  • Don't think, feel! It is like a finger pointing a way to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory. Do you understand? (to his student Lahn).
  • Never take your eyes off your opponent, even when you bow. (to his student Lahn).
  • My style? You can call it "the art of fighting without fighting". (to Parsons)
  • You have offended my family, and you have offended the Shaolin Temple. (to Han before starting the fight)
  • Boards... don't hit back. (to O'Hara before starting the fight)

Roper[edit]

  • I admire your judgement. Nobody's more loyal than daddy's little girl. (to Han after being attacked by Han's female guards)

Williams[edit]

  • Man, you've come right out of a comic book! (to Han)
  • Bullshit, Mister Han-Man! (to Han)
  • When it comes, I won't even notice: I'll be too busy looking good. (to Han)

Han[edit]

  • We are unique in that we create ourselves. Gentlemen, you have our gratitude! (speech at the party previous to tournament)
  • Very few people can be totally ruthless. It isn't easy. It takes more strength than you might believe! (to Roper)
  • There is a point that you will not go beyond. (to Roper)
