“It’s hard to read through a book on the principles of magic without glancing at the cover periodically to make sure it isn’t a book on software design.”

 

Bruce Tognazzini

“A character like Wonder Woman is so iconic and yet, over the course of her history, there have been lots of subtle changes. We couldn’t stray too far from the comic book look, but you do have a certain amount of leeway in terms of how you interpret those elements for animation.”

 

Bruce Timm

“The book was just something that came along after we played the Super Bowl and I wrote a little essay that went online. Then I had two or three weeks and I said, wow, that essay was pretty good. Maybe I’ll try and write some other stuff. Writing about the depression, I just felt – you know, when you write a book like this, you have to open up your life. You have to be willing to do so to a certain degree.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“You still had to find the music inside your language. You know, it was – that’s a big part of what sort of moved me to begin writing the book. I wrote a little essay and I felt, yeah, this is a good voice. This is a good feeling. It feels like me.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Once you get into the book, you’ve got to constantly find your – the rhythm of your prose. And it ends up being quite a musical experience either way.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“That Elvis, man, he is all there is. There ain’t no more. Everything starts and ends with him. He wrote the book. But for him, I’d be selling encyclopedias right now. There have been a lotta tough guys. There have been pretenders. And there have been contenders. But there is only one king.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I think I created my particular stage persona out of my dad’s life. And perhaps I even built it to suit him to some degree. I was looking for – when I was looking for a voice to mix with my voice, I put on my father’s work clothes, as I say in the book, and I went to work.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Elvis Presley is all there is. There just ain’t no more. Everything starts and ends with Elvis. He wrote the book. He is everything to do and not to do in the music business.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Perhaps no other book has been denounced so vigorously by those who have never read it as has the Book of Mormon.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“Life moves all too fast. When you feel weak, discouraged, depressed, or afraid, open the Book of Mormon and read.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“I think so much of our society is geared towards mainstream media and pop culture and so forth. And there’s a huge divide between the artist and the fan. And with indie culture that wall is removed. You actually do see the musicians walking around enjoying the show. It’s a distinctly different culture and for the 99% of Nirvana fans that caught up with them with Nevermind, my book is gonna give them a whole different take on Kurt [Cobain] and the band.”

 

Bruce Parry

“Independent inquiry is needed in your search for truth, not dependence on anyone else’s view or a mere book.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Movies are not the book. Movies are not even the screenplay. They are the movie.”

 

Bruce Joel Rubin

“I would be the last to disparage the genius of the politicians who make our laws,” Hutchison wrote around that time, “the writers who make our books, the artists who make our pictures, but in gauging the true culture of the nation and reckoning its tensile strength, let the student not neglect hockey”

 

Bruce Hutchison

“Works of art are not so much finished as abandoned. Perhaps poems can be perfect. A short-short story might even be perfectible, as effective and enjoyable for one reader as the next. But novels and other book-length narratives are great rambling things that always contain some flaws. For works of any length, there comes a point when your continued tinkering won’t improve the whole, but will just trade one set of problems for another.”

 

Bruce Holland Rogers

“If you want to pontificate, I’m certainly willing to pontificate. That’s why Joely was laughing because you don’t know what you asked for. Malcolm Gladwell, in his newest book “David and Goliath,” writes about how sometimes things that we think of as handicaps often times are just the opposite. Or the reverse is also true.”

 

Bruce Greenwood

“I set out to write an anti-parenting parenting book.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“I think that most of the action in religion is around the home, is in families, and is in individual lives, and they can go on their own searches, watch their own TV shows, read their own books, form their own groups and discuss it, but that’s where the action is – on the home front.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“Here’s a confession: I hate parenting books. I hate the ones that are earnest and repetitive.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“We no longer just take religious identity from our parents, so what’s going on? Why are people going to this series, why are people reading so many books about religion? It’s because they want answers. The answers are no longer just passed down from generation to generation. It’s harder for people. In effect, you have to roll up your sleeve and ask the questions. But if you do it, if you forge your own identity, it can be much more personal and much more meaningful to you.”
