“The biggest idea that I have learned – I basically went in to write a book about Adam and Eve, ended up writing a book about love. And what did I learn? Love is a story you tell with another person.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“Every writer dreams of writing a book that will touch people.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“You can sail in the desert with a ship of fools. You can smuggle in Moses and his book of rules. But you can’t take a mother and give her back her son. What kind of freedom is bought with a gun? People like to build their prison walls when they’re afraid to look inside… a thousand points of light are the muzzle flashes in the night. And the freedoms you profess to hold won’t bring the dead back from the cold.”

 

Bruce Dickinson

“I’m not a good reader. I had to take remedial reading in school. I was a slow reader and therefore it’s tough for me to stay interested in things long enough, I’ve read, probably, since college maybe 10 books, which is disgusting.”

 

Bruce Dern

“The usual run of children’s books left me cold, and at the age of six I decided to write a book of my own. I managed the first line, ‘I am a swallow.’ Then I looked up and asked, ‘How do you spell telephone wires?”

 

Bruce Chatwin

“I pictured a low timber house with a shingled roof, caulked against storms, with blazing log fires inside and the walls lined with all the best books, somewhere to live when the rest of the world blew up.”

 

Bruce Chatwin

“The most colorful section of a bookstore is the display of SF books, with art by people like Wayne Barlow, who is a terrific artist.”

Bruce Boxleitner

“Voltaire spoke of the Bible as a short-lived book. He said that within a hundred years it would pass from common use. Not many people read Voltaire today, but his house has been packed with Bibles as a depot of a Bible society.”

Bruce Barton

“Many of my sharpest critics have decided to take a position of ignoring me – because they feel that by attacking me, they would draw attention to my book and give me more publicity and help me sell more books. So I think that they decided that the best thing for them to do is to say nothing. Also, I think that some of my critics simply can’t refute my argument – and so it’s easier for them to ignore it as well, so that they’re not forced to confront the logical contradiction in their own position.”

Bruce Bartlett

“Having found in many books different methods of going to GOD, and divers practices of the spiritual life, I thought this would serve rather to puzzle me than facilitate what I sought after, which was nothing but how to become wholly GOD’S. This made me resolve to give the all for the all; so after having given myself wholly to GOD, that He might take away my sin, I renounced, for the love of Him, everything that was not He; and I began to live as if there was none but He and I in the world.”

Brother Lawrence

“Fifty years from now I’ll be just three inches of type in a record book.”

Brooks Robinson

“Writing is not an end in itself but life transmuted into radiance.”

Brooks Atkinson

“I’m a bit of a book worm, so a lot of the songs I write are inspired by books.”

Brooke Fraser

“When you meet someone for the first time, that’s not the whole book. That’s just the first page.”

 

Brody Dalle

“More books, more racing and more foolishness with cars and motorcycles are in the works.”

 

Brock Yates

“All over the world, there are libraries of a sort. They are among the most beautiful places on the earth, and they hold more information than the Library of Congress. Within these libraries are millions of books, each a uniques masterpiece to see and touch. They are teaching this language to scientists. However, so far only one percent of the books have been deciphered. Some tell how to find new medicines; others reveal new things to eat… These treasure houses of knowledge are the ancient forests of our planet.”

 

Brock Adams

“Every night, I have to read a book, so that my mind will stop thinking about things that I stress about.”

 

Britney Spears

“One of my favorite stories growing up was A Wrinkle in Time. I loved that book. I still remember the image, so strongly, of all the kids coming out of their house at the same time, they’re all bouncing a ball at the same time, and they all go back in at the same time. A Wrinkle in Time moved me deeply.”

 

Brit Marling

“One of my favorite stories growing up was ‘A Wrinkle in Time’. I loved that book.”

 

Brit Marling
