“When you`re onstage you have a certain faith that somebody’s gonna yell somethin’ back. Some nights it’s louder than other nights and some nights they do, and on some songs they don’t. But that’s the idea. I think when you begin to expect a reaction from an audience, it’s a mistake.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“It took quite a bit of work and time and mistakes to begin to feel – to understand the strength that comes along with building a home life.That was very mysterious to me. I was very skeptical of it for a long time, and didn’t understand it fully until Patti [ Scialfa] and I got together.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The moment you begin to depend on audience reaction, you’re doing the wrong thing. You’re doin’ it wrong, it’s a mistake, it’s not right. You can’t allow yourself, no matter what, to depend on them.”

Bruce Kovner

“One of my earliest ventures was when I was nine years old. I realized there was a shortage of pencils at school, so I started Rent-a-Pencil. But I made a fundamental mistake. Everybody stole my pencils.”
