“I’m always being accused of being a Hollywood Republican, but I’m not! I have just as many Democratic ideas as Republican ones. If they could build three fewer bombs every month and give the money to foster care, that would be great.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I have just as many liberal ideas as I have conservative ideas that I argue with myself sometimes.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I had no idea Canada could be so much fun.”

 

Bruce Willis

“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

“My idea of an amusement park story is getting adventurers to go tour environmental disaster areas. After all, if the entire Great Barrier Reef gets killed, which seems like an extremely lively possibility, what are you going to do with all that rotting limestone?”

 

Bruce Sterling

“If poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world, science fiction writers are its court jesters. We are Wise Fools who can leap, caper, utter prophecies, and scratch ourselves in public. We can play with Big Ideas because the garish motley of our pulp origins make us seem harmless.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“I have my ideas, I have my music and I also just enjoy showing off, so that’s a big part of it. Also, I like to get up onstage and behave insanely or express myself physically, and the band can get pretty silly.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“That’s what being a front man is all about – the idea of having something supple underneath you, that machine that roars and can turn on a dime.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I believe the war on poverty is a more American idea than the war on the war on poverty. I believe that most people feel like that. And I believe that it ain’t over till it’s over.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Somewhere along the way, the idea, which I think was initially to get some fair transaction between people, went out the window. And what came in was, the most you can get and the least you can give. That’s why cars are the way they are nowadays. It’s just an erosion of all the things that were true and right about the original idea.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I was looking for some way to put my music to some service on a nightly basis. You go into a town, you play a little music, you leave something behind. That idea connected us to the local community. It was a very simple idea, but it really resonated with me.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“You ask for your audience’s investment in your music; you’re in a relationship with them. And their relationship with the E Street Band is separate from whatever else I might do. I like the idea of us being something that people rely on.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I tend to be a subscriber to the idea that you have everything you need by the time you’re 12 years old to do interesting writing for most of the rest of your life – certainly by the time you’re 18.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I like to say that Bobby Fischer was the greatest player ever. But what made Fischer a genius was his ability to blend an American freshness and pragmatism with Russian ideas about strategy”

 

Bruce Pandolfini

“Fashion is more usually a gentle progression of revisited ideas.”

 

Bruce Oldfield

“My videos always involve some idea of a human being in a unusual situation-and what happens.”

 

Bruce Nauman

“I want to entertain people, whether it be with a comedy, a drama or a movie. An idea’s an idea.”

 

Bruce Nash

“It’s very difficult to get your ideas to Hollywood if you’re the average Joe or Jane. An agent wouldn’t bother with you.”

 

Bruce Nash

“If the general attitude of Canadians toward their mighty neighbor to the south could be distilled into a single phrase, that phrase would probably be “Oh, shut up.” The Americans talked too much, mainly about themselves. Their torrid love affair with their own history and legend exceeded-painfully-the quasi-British Canadian idea of modesty and self-restraint. … They were forever busting their buttons in spasms of insufferable yahoo pride or all too publicly agonizing over their crises.”

 

Bruce McCall

“The fundamental idea of design is to make the world a better place.”
