"Train not to get something right, Train so that you can never get it wrong"
There is no reason to have a plan B, cause all it does is distract from plan A

"He must seek his life in a spirit of furious indifference to it: he must desire life like water and yet drink death like wine." - G.K. Chesterton

Only those who risk going too far can possibly know how far one can go.

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."

"With the body as paint, and the city as canvass, what will you create?"

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare.
Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing."

"A crazy person is only crazy because he does what no one else will"

I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.

"The human body does have a limit, we just havent found it yet"

"As Albert Einstein pointed out, the tragedy of experiencing ourselves as apart from everyone else is that this delusion becomes a prison. Sadder yet, we become increasingly unnerved at the possibility of freedom. When the barriers come down, we don't know what to do. We need a bit more warning about what it feels like when the walls start tumbling down. We need to be told that fear and trembling accompany growing up and that letting go takes courage. Finding the courage to go to the places that scare us cannot happen without compassionate inquiry into the workings of ego."

"Whether you think you can, or think you can't- either way, you're right"

"Telling yourself it's possible is easy, believing it is hard"

When your at a dead end look around the exit is always there

May the mind, soul, and body all move together as one cohessive force conquering all they come across

Every now and then everyone is in a race, some stop to quickly to enjoy the taste of victory, but then there are those who run for a finish line, for the win, for the satisfaction of victory.

"Confess your hidden faults.
Approach what you find repulsive.
Help those you think you cannot help.
Anything you are attached to, let it go.
Go to places that scare you."

"Looks Belle-able"
- referring to an obstacle or movement that is well out of your own range but within possibility for David Belle and other high-class practitioners

"The idea is a man who runs, and whom nothing stops"
- I thought Tyson Cecka, but I've been told David Belle

Can someone provide a video or interview or something where he said that?

Nah, that was Mr. Belle first.

I'm fond of this one...mainly because thats what happens has I'm just walkin' around, lol.
When mind and body become one, and as your movement continues you feel a sudden calm rest itself upon your soul; you notice that suddenly the universe around you has achieved a harmony with itself and you, and every move you make becomes deliberate and successful for that second of enlightenment.
