These are a few wise quotes from throughout the old television series " Kung Fu " ( and a few from " Kung Fu: The Legend Continues " ), starring David Carridine as a Shaolin Monk, wandering the old West of America. Though fiction, much of it's philosophy is based on Zen, and contain many truths to them. Enjoy. :)

******************************************************** ******************************************************** On Love:

"Deal with evil from strength, but affirm the good in man through trust. In this way, we are prepared for evil, but we encourage good." -- Master Kahn "And is good a great reward for trusting?" -- Young Caine

"In striving for an ideal, we do not seek rewards. Yet trust does sometimes bring with it a great reward, even greater than good." -- Master Kahn "What is greater than good?" -- Young Caine "Love." -- Master Kahn

"And what is love?" -- Young Caine "Love is harmony, even in discord." -- Master Kahn


"Can a woman be happy alone?" -- Caine

"To be alone, without one to love, is a waste of the body. To be not alone, without one to love, is a waste of the soul." -- Su Yen Lu, quoting her father

On Life:

"If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present; but if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future. The seeds of our destiny are nurtured by the roots of our past." -- Master Po


"Accept the ways of others. Respect first your own." -- Master Po


"I have three treasures which I hold and keep. The first is mercy, for from mercy comes courage. The second is frugality, from which comes generosity to others. The third is humility, for from it comes leadership." -- Master Po

"Strange treasures. How shall I hold them and keep them? Memory?" -- Caine

"No, Grasshopper, not in memory, but in your deeds." -- Master Po


"But Master, how do I not contend with a man that would contend with me?" -- Caine

"In a heart that is one with nature, though the body contends, there is no violence, and in the heart that is not one with nature, though the body be at rest, there is always violence. Be, therefore, like the prow of a boat. It cleaves water, yet it leaves in its wake water unbroken." -- Master Po


"If you plant rice, rice will grow. If you plant fear, fear will grow." -- Caine


"Remember always, that a wise man walks with his head bowed, humble, like the dust." -- Master Kahn


" Master, forgive me, for I have failed. " -- Caine

" You have failed no one, Grasshopper; only your own ambition. " -- Master Po

" My ambition? " -- Caine

" It is sometimes difficult, is it not, for you to remember that you are but a humble priest. -- Master Po

" Yet, as a man, I sometimes greatly fear that I may fail. " -- Caine

" If that is our destiny, you cannot change it. But do not go with fear, Grasshopper; fear is eternal darkness. Go instead with inner strength, for it is like a deep river into which all streams flow. It increases, always moving forward; and soon, there is nothing that can stand in it's way. " -- Master Po

On Conflict:

"The wild boar runs from the tiger, knowing that each be well-armed by nature with deadly strength, may kill the other. Running, he saves his own life and that of the tiger. This is not cowardice. It is the love of life." -- Master Kahn


" Men do not beat drums before hunting tigers. " -- Caine


"The courageous fighter shuns violence. The skillful soldier avoids anger. A mighty warrior does not fight for petty conquests." -- Caine

On Suicide:

Young Caine speaks with Master Kahn about Master Sung, a Master from the temple, who took his own life.

"Why did he take his own life? Yin and Yang?" -- Caine

"The Yes and the No. In him, No conquered....Instead of the beauty we observed, he saw ugliness." -- Master Kahn

"How is that possible?" -- Caine

"He looked with his eyes, and we look with ours." -- Master Kahn
