Who can be romantically linked to Bruce Lee...and how closely?
Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one`s potential.
If you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it`ll spread over into the rest of your life. It`ll spread over into your work, into your mortality, into your entire being.

Before hitting it big as a movie star, he often trained with the martial arts world's biggest stars, many of whom would latter become celebrities in their own right, such as world karate champion 'Chuck Norris'.

THE great Hollywood adage is that nobody knows anything about what makes a hit. But box-office bombs are usually easy to smell. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra reeked of failure. And just in case there was any remaining doubt, the studio behind the action pic, Paramount, resorted to that tell-tale trick: refusing to let reviewers see the film. But who`s laughing now? The celluloid telling of the famous Hasbro action figure took in $US100 million ($120m) across the world last weekend, annihilating the competition.
