Someone on the Software Testing discussion list just posted a link to quotes from Bruce Lee, the famous American-Born Martial Artist and Actor.
As your read the quotes, it's pretty clear that Lee strove toward self-mastery. Now, I am not into eastern philosophy, and I am certainly no martial artist, but I *am* into excellence - hey, I founded the conference on it - and when I read Lee's philosophy, I am struck by how similar it is to my approach to testing and development.
Here's the quote page - I hope you enjoy it.
