Top 15 Most Inspiring Jackie Chan Quotes

Jackie Chan is an international superstar known for films featuring his innovative stunts, improvised weapons, comic timing, and acrobatic fighting style. In addition to being a martial artist, he is a stuntman, producer, film director, actor, and singer (that's right, a singer).

His early career met difficulty when he was marketed as the next Bruce Lee in the late seventies. Going as far as changing his stage name, the film titled New Fist of Fury was considered a flop due to the fact that Chan was not familiar with Lee's style of martial arts. Chan eventually bounced back from the event, finding success creating what would be known as "comedic kung fu".

Today, Jackie Chan has acted in over 150 films and has stars to his name on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Hong Kong Avenue of Stars.

Here are a few of the best Jackie Chan quotes to inspire you to take control of your life and enjoy it to the fullest.
