    Bruce Lee extraordinary autographed personal statement titled, "My Definite Chief Aim". (1969) Bruce Lee fully handwritten manifesto entitled "My Definite Chief Aim" signed twice, "Bruce Lee", 1 page, on 8.5 x 11 in. stationery with "secret" imprinted in red at the top and bottom of the page, dated "Jan. 1969". This is a personal manifesto Bruce Lee wrote to himself just 4 years before his death, outlining his deepest goals and titled in red pen, "My Definite Chief Aim". Written in blue pen, Lee pens the following in full: "I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness". The paper shows some minor soiling and wrinkling; the red and blue colored ink remains very bold. A highly personal and profound Bruce Lee piece. Provenance: Superior Galleries "The Bruce Lee Collection" authorized by Lee's widow, Linda Lee, August 7, 1993, Lot 39.
