“There’s a long history of all kinds of cop films… But all these films are really about the same thing: the good guys triumphing over the bad guys.”

 

Bruce Willis

“But the action film genre is gonna have to come up with some new bad guys.”

 

Bruce Willis

“You wouldn’t want to see a movie where the bad guys triumph over the good guys all the time. You’d get bummed out, and you’d just stay at home and watch the news.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I’m really just a regular guy who has had an incredibly blessed life.”

 

Bruce Willis

“Everyone has a right to bear arms. If you take guns away from legal gun owners, then the only people who have guns are the bad guys.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I could throw pretty hard. I might strike out 16 guys, but I might walk 10. I mean, I was wild.”

 

Bruce Sutter

“The future is a process, not a destination. Richard Stallman is a guy my age. I sympathize with Richard rather more than I sympathize with Richard’s open-source ideas, but the guy’s a mortal human being and so is his social movement. Open-source is a means of production.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“Political people don’t solve stuff – not really. Political people are like guys in pop music.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“When I first started in rock, I had a big guy’s audience for my early records. I had a very straight image, particularly through the mid ’80s.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The wonderful thing about rock music is even if you hate the other person, sometimes you need him more, you know. In other words if he’s the guy that made that sound, he’s the guy that made that sound, and without that guy making that sound, you don’t have a band, you know.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“For me, I was somebody who was a smart young guy who didn’t do very well in school. The basic system of education, I didn’t fit in; my intelligence was elsewhere.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The drummer in my first band was killed in Vietnam. He kind of signed up and joined the marines. Bart Hanes was his name. He was one of those guys that was jokin’ all the time, always playin’ the clown.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Basically, I was pretty ostracized in my hometown. Me and a few other guys were the town freaks- and there were many occasions when we were dodging getting beaten up ourselves.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Some guys they just give up living, and start dying little by little, piece by piece.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“If you see me performing, you’re going, that guy is simply the most extroverted guy I’ve ever seen. But if you’ve seen me very often on a daily basis and all the while growing up, I was very, very introverted. Very introverted. So I have sort of the extremes of both of those characteristics.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“People see you onstage and, yeah, I’d want to be that guy.I want to be that guy myself very often.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“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 like to do little obsessed losers, or people who are in over their head, or people who are trying to figure stuff out, or guys whose girlfriends leave them and they don’t quite get it. Guys who just don’t quite get it.”

 

Bruce McCulloch

“Too much horsing around with unrealistic stances and classic forms and rituals is just too artificial and mechanical, and doesn’t really prepare the student for actual combat. A guy could get clobbered while getting into this classical mess. Classical methods like these, which I consider a form of paralysis, only solidify and constrain what was once fluid. Their practitioners are merely blindly rehearsing routines and stunts that will lead nowhere.”

 

Bruce Lee

“The martial arts are ultimately self-knowledge. A punch or a kick is not to knock the hell out of the guy in front, but to knock the hell out of your ego, your fear, or your hang-ups.”

 

Bruce Lee
