Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water.
If you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup.
If you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle.
If you put water into a tea pot, it becomes the tea pot.
Water can flow, or water can crash.
Be water my friend.
Some more quotes

Using no way as way. - Don't have preconceived notions about anything.
Having no limitation as limitation. - Don't be confined by anything, achieve true freedom.
From form to formless and from finite to infinite. Don't be confined by limitations and forms. By not having specific form all forms can be included.
The consciousness of "self" is the greatest hindrance to the proper execution of all physical action.
Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it
Do not deny the classical approach, simply as a reaction, or you will have created another pattern and trapped yourself there.
Quick temper will make a fool of you soon enough.
I always learn something, and that is: to always be yourself. And to express yourself, to have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate him.
It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.
