“The difference between trying to be fit and not being fit really means the difference between life and death.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I mean, look, I wear makeup in films. I don’t wear makeup in real life. It’s just part of the gig, that’s all.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I mean, I’ve sold all these scripts and nothing’s been made. Studios have closed, stars have died. I had a director find Jesus. And the pictures just don’t get made.”

 

Bruce Vilanch

“I mean, when I started out I was billing per hour, like a shrink because you would sit with somebody and work. But most of it, if it’s for a live show it’s usually a buy-out. A flat fee.”

 

Bruce Vilanch

“I mean, if they’re doing a television show every night like Jon Stewart, or Ellen, or David Letterman, then they have their bunch of people who are sitting on a payroll someplace, who are coming up with material every day of the week. Those are the people who wind up doing the bulk of the work for them when they host the thing, because that’s their team.”

 

Bruce Vilanch

“I mean, people who watch Jon Stewart’s show every night don’t think he went far enough, because he couldn’t do what he does on his show every night, because it’s a different job. The same thing with Chris Rock. He can’t come out and do a tossed-salad routine, the way he does on his HBO shows, because this is the Academy Awards.”

 

Bruce Vilanch

“Open-source is a means of production.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“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

“I know that the human condition will be radically changed through technical means. Much of this change will be painful, monstrous and horrible. Most mutations are disgusting failures, most experiments are failures. I accept this and I don’t find it frightening.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“When you can’t imagine how things are going to change, that doesn’t mean that nothing will change. It means that things will change in ways that are unimaginable.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“I don’t think there’s much distinction between surveillance and media in general. Better media means better surveillance. Cams are everywhere.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“Your flag flyin’ over the courthouseMeans certain things are set in stone.Who we are, what we’ll do and what we won’t”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I’m interested in what it means to be an American. I’m interested in what it means to live in America. I’m interested in the kind of country that we live in and leave our kids. I’m interested in trying to define what that country is.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“You’re young and you’re always in pursuit your young manhood. You’re trying to figure out – what does that mean? What does – you know, there’s a lot of pressure on young men to sort that out. And, you know, we tend to gravitate towards one-dimensional iconography as far as what it means to be a fully grown man. And you can get lost in so much of it out there.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The first time I heard Bob Dylan, I was in the car with my mother listening to WMCA, and on came that snare shot that sounded like somebody’d kicked open the door to your mind.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“We accept the responsibility to preach the gospel to every person on earth. And if the question is asked, you mean you are out to convert the entire world? The answer is, ‘yes’. We will try to reach every living soul.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“My aim is to make you look the best you can and if that means a little bit of internal pulling and hoisting up, then so be it.”

 

Bruce Oldfield

“I mean, you can’t walk down the aisle in Westminster Abbey in a strapless dress, it just won’t happen – it has to suit the grandeur of that aisle, it’s enormous.”

 

Bruce Oldfield

“But part of the enjoyment I take in it is finding the most efficient way to do it, which doesn’t mean the corrections aren’t made. I like to have a feeling of the whole task before I start, even if it changes.”
