Fortune Cookie Wisdom

Pushing your luck does not count as exercise                   

Don’t beat your drum while in the Tigers cave

If you beat your horse you will have to walk

Wisdom is not a flower to pluck, but the Mountain difficult to climb

The three great physicians Nature, time, and patience

Two Tiger’s can’t live on the same mountain

The man who honors his teacher, honors himself


Confusions says one who runs in front of car gets tired, one who runs behind gets exhausted

Fortune Cookie Wisdom                                                               

Patience is the answer to success

We do not know the value of water, until the well is dry

The superior person fulfills their purpose but does not boast of their accomplishments

The wise person seeks everything in themselves, the ignorant person tries to get everything from somebody else

If the dark element seeks to achieve a position to which it is not entitled and tries to rule instead of serving, it draws upon itself the fury of the dragon

He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough

Man follows the way of earth, Earth follows the way of heaven, Heaven follows the way of Tao, Tao follows the way of nature

Separately we are as fragile as reeds, together we are as strong as reeds tied in a bundle



Fortune Cookie Wisdom

Teachers open the door, but you must enter yourself

Wisdom is not a flower to pluck, but the mountain difficult to climb

Don’t compare your life to others, you have no idea what their journey is like

Growing old beats the alternative, dying young

If we threw all of our problems on a pile, and we saw everyone else’s, we would grab ours back

Make peace with your past so you won’t screw up the present


Fortune Cookie Wisdom

Do Not climb a tree to look for fish, do not go swimming to look for birds

Do not follow in the footsteps of ancient men of old, but seek to find what they sought, and make your own footsteps

How shall I grasp martial arts, do not grasp it. That which remains when there is no more grasping is the self, that will lead you somewhere, you can not see

Tie two bird togther even though they have four wings they can not fly


Peace can not be kept by using force, it can only be reached through understanding


The stubborn Oak tree will stand firm, and strong against the wind, while the Willow tree will yeild to the on coming wind force, and thus re-direct it's energy, not wasting it's own
