Li Mu Bai: The things we touch have no permanence. My master would say: there is nothing we can hold onto in this world. Only by letting go can we truly possess what is real.
Li Mu Bai: Even if I was banished to the darkest place, my love will never let me be a lonely spirit.
Yu Shu Lien: What was it?
Li Mu Bai: Something I can't let go of.
Sir Te: A sword by itself rules nothing. It only comes alive in skilled hands.
Li Mu Bai: She should come to Wudan and become a disciple.
Yu Shu Lien: But Wudan does not accept women.
Li Mu Bai: For her, they might make an exception. If not, I'm afraid she'll become a poisoned dragon.
Li Mu Bai: Like most things, I am nothing.
Yu Shu Lien: To repress one's feelings only makes them stronger.
Li Mu Bai: Sharpness is a state of mind.
Jen Yu: Make a wish, Lo.
Li Mu Bai: I would rather be a ghost drifting by your side as a condemned soul than enter heaven without you... because of your love, I will never be a lonely spirit.
Yu Shu Lien: You were enlightened?
Li Mu Bai: No. I didn't feel the bliss of enlightenment. Instead... I was surrounded by an endless sorrow.
Yu Shu Lien: Without Green Destiny, you are nothing.
Li Mu Bai: No growth without assistance. No action without reaction. No desire without restraint. Now give yourself up and find yourself again.
Lo: All this trouble for a comb?
Jen Yu: It's mine. It means a lot to me. A barbarian like you wouldn't understand.
Lo: I can use it to pick fleas from my horse.
Lo: We have a legend. Anyone who dares to jump from the mountain, God will grant his wish. Long ago, a young man's parents were ill, so he jumped. He didn't die. He wasn't even hurt. He floated away, far away, never to return. He knew his wish had come true. If you believe, it will happen. The elders say, "A faithful heart makes wishes come true."
Li Mu Bai: Real sharpness comes without effort.
