The Original Bruce Lee

“There is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness and truth.”

– Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

You might recall a similar quote from Bruce Lee which I posted last year.

Bruce Lee said, “Simplicity is brilliance.”

I agree with him but I do wonder if he was a fellow reader of Tolstoy.

We speak of the history of literature and within it we often find original or older versions of modern, even contemporary counterparts.

This ultimately brings us back to history as the foundation of the humanities.
