“Now those memories come back to haunt me they haunt me like a curse.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I leave pansies, the symbolic flower of freethought, in memory of the Great Agnostic, Robert Ingersoll, who stood for equality, education, progress, free ideas and free lives, against the superstition and bigotry of religious dogma. We need men like him today more than ever. His writing still inspires us and challenges the ‘better angels’ of our nature, when people open their hearts and minds to his simple, honest humanity. Thank goodness he was here.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.”

 

Bruce Lee

“I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”

 

Bruce Lee

“I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”

 

Bruce Lee

“To realize freedom the mind has to learn to look at life, which is a vast movement, without the bondage of time , for freedom lies beyond the field of consciousness care for watching, but don’t stop and interpret “I am free,” then you’re living in a memory of something that has gone before.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Success only means doing something sincerely and wholeheartedly. I think life is a process. Through the ages, the end of heroes is the same as ordinary men. They all died and gradually faded away in the memory of man. But when we are still alive, we have to understand ourselves, discover ourselves and express ourselves. In this way, we can progress, but we may not be successful.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Our self illusion is so interwoven with personal memories that when we recall an event, we believe we are retrieving a reliable episode from our history like opening a photograph album and examining a snapshot in time. If we then discover the episode never really happened, then our whole self is called into question. But that’s only because we are so committed to the illusion that our self is a reliable story in the first place.”

 

Bruce Hood

“I’d say my best memory was climbing Mt. Fuji, and the worst memory was… trying to fit my feet into the free giveaway slippers at Japanese schools.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“I hate to date myself, but my earliest memories are Flash Gordon. I would love playing Flash Gordon in the neighborhood.”

 

Bruce Davison

“Music… is a memory bank for finding one’s way about the world.”

 

Bruce Chatwin

“The enduring realization that when a great challenge comes, the most ordinary people can show that they value something more than they value their own lives. When the last of the veterans had gone, and the sorrows and bitterness which the war created had at last worn away, this memory remained.”

 

Bruce Catton

“A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future.”

Bruce Barton

“The mountain receives our expressions and becomes part of us; we imprint our memories upon it and trust it with out dearest divisions of out lives. Mt. Rainier does not exist under our feet. Mt. Rainier lives in our minds”

Bruce Barcott

“Up until 1986, the top marginal rate, the top statutory rate was 50 percent. Now it’s 35 percent. And all the pressure is on to lower that even further. And this just doesn’t make a great deal of sense. When people say, ‘Oh, we can’t raise taxes on the rich. They’ll go on strike, they’ll move to another country.’ But within recent memory, it hasn’t been that long ago that we had rates that were substantially higher. And these people did just fine. I just think that there’s a disconnect between the facts of what taxes do and the sort of mythology of what they do.”

Bruce Bartlett

“Let them that don’t want none have memories of not gettin’ any.”

Brother Dave Gardner

“Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.”

Brooks Atkinson

“One of my earliest memories is seeing the bright blue, Epic 45 of Jackie Wilson singing ‘Higher and Higher,’ and I’d say, ‘That one!’ and my parents would play it every Sunday afternoon and we’d all get up and leap around the house.”

 

Bronagh Gallagher

“I’ve always seen myself as one of those ‘show people.’ My earliest memories are wanting and needing to entertain people, like a gypsy traveler who goes from place to place, city to city, performing for audiences and reaching people.”

 

Brittany Murphy

“Throughout history, humankind has been resistant to change and to the acceptance of new ideas… When Galileo discovered the moons of Jupiter, the astronomers of that time refused to accept or even to look at these satellites because the existence of these moons conflicted with their accepted beliefs. So it is now with psychiatrists and other therapists, who refuse to examine and evaluate the considerable evidence being gathered about survival after bodily death and about past life memories. Their eyes are tightly shut.”
