Bruce Lee, in case you were unfamiliar with his life, studied philosophy at the University of Washington, and was an avid fan of the spoken word. One of his favorite poems was “IF” by Rudyard Kipling. He had it put on a plaque, hanging it in his home as a constant reference and source of inspiration. His daughter Shannon Lee reads its from the Bruce Lee archives and reads it here.
Bruce Lee had also translated another of his favourite poem by Tzu Yeh called “The Frost”. Watch a feature video version featuring his handwritten translation here
