Forget Dr. Phil

Since you’ve got to go through life one way or another, you might as well adopt a life philosophy. And you could do a lot worse than the Tao of Jack Burton:

“I feel good, and I’m not scared at all. I just feel kind of… kind of invincible… Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?”

“Hey, I’m a reasonable guy. But I’ve just experienced some very unreasonable things.”

“You know what Jack Burton always says… what the hell.”

“Would you just stop rubbing your body up against mine, because I can’t concentrate when you do that.”

“May the wings of liberty never lose a feather.”

“Next time some eight-foot-tall, wild-eyed maniac taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall and asks you if you’ve paid your dues, well, you just do what ole Jack Burton always does at a time like that. You stare that sucker right back in the eye. “Have you paid your dues, Jack?” “Yes, sir, the check is in the mail.””

And Jamie reminds me of perhaps the most important one: “”Just remember what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says, ‘Give me your best shot. I can take it’.”
