"We do not learn martial arts to pick fights or to impress girls who will say "Oh beefcake, you're so strong, I want you." Heh. ~Muah~ Do you understand what I am saying? We must master the art of peace in addition to the art of war. We achieve victory by the art of war, victory is won through strategy, strategy is derived from the art of peace. However, if somebody evil threatens you or any other good innocent people with unethical force, it is your duty to defend!"
― Master Roshi explaining the ways of the Turtle School to Krillin and Son Goku (Dragon Ball)
"The martial arts are based upon understanding, hard work and a total comprehension of skills. Power training and the use of force are easy, but total comprehension of all of the skills of the martial arts is very difficult to achieve."
― Bruce Lee Founder of Jeet Kune Do
"Their gift was also their passion; they lived, breathed and dreamed of all things martial arts."
― Splinter (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie 2014)
