Be Like Ice Cubes

In his life, Bruce Lee said a lot of quotable things. Perhaps his most famous quote is his advice telling people to be like water, because it is formless and shapeless and becomes whatever it is put into. I was recently thinking about that quote and a fact I learned long ago about water and ice cubes and found another way to explain it. What I once learned about ice cubes is that if you put them in water, or any other drink I guess, is when they melt, the water doesn’t get higher or lower, it always is at and seeks its own level. So now I see more justification in why Bruce Lee was saying with his famous quote to be like water and remain levelheaded in changing circumstances.
