She is basically saying that it is alright to be different and believe different things even if others don't agree or understand what it is like. I can relate to this because I am the only child in my family that has experienced the military life as a kid. My family members are always asking "what is it like" and saying "I don't know how you could live like that." But that's okay because it's my life and I love where I am right now no matter what others say and/or think.
What Bob is trying to say is that it is better to be wise than rich because wisdom brings happiness, while chasing money only leads to chasing more money and you are never happy. Therefore, one should strive to become wise rather than greedy and want to be the center or the world. I can relate to this because my parents have always told me to be grateful for the things that are given to me in life.
Appearing strong when we are weak is pretty obvious in this world. People take advantage of the weak. If you show weakness, they'll turn on you. Appearing weak when you are strong is not as obvious, but it is a way to build relationships and gain an understanding of the people who are with you through thick and thin. This is relatable to me because I have been in situations in life where it would've been good if I have shown ever when I knew I was weak. But I soon realized that this was very helpful when you believe you can't go on because you are to weak, that is when you try your hardest.
This basically means that you shouldn't do something just because you're told by another individual to do so. You should take your own path and follow your own decisions when choosing something because it is your life and you should live it how you want, not like others would tell you how to. I have chosen this one because a lot of people have told me that this is the way to go and I need to do this to get somewhere. But I decided to go on my own path and carry on how I please.
Mr. Miyagi was supposed to be teaching Mr. Larusso karate, but all summer the karate master had him painting stuff and waxing his cars. However the painting and waxing techniques were secretly teaching him karate moves. By doing this, he teaches Mr. Larusso that not everything is what it seems and that you can learn valuable lessons through simple tasks. I believe this is one of the sentences that I could relate to the most because my parents have always told me "You're making things so much harder than they need to be." I soon realized that you can do a lot of things that are very simple and get the same results compared to if you would've done them the "hard way."
