“I do have two data identities. I have my name, Bruce Sterling, which is my public name under which I write novels. I also have my other name, which is my legal name under which I own property and vote.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“The name ‘Boss’ started with people that worked for me… It was not meant like Boss, capital B, it was meant like ‘Boss, where’s my dough this week?’ And it was sort of just a term among friends. I never really liked it.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“So I bought a forty-four magnum, it was solid steel cast, and in the blessed name of Elvis, well I just let it blast ’til my TV lay in pieces.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I do a lot of curiosity buying; I buy it if I like the album cover, I buy it if I like the name of the band, anything that sparks my imagination. I still like to go to record stores, I like to just wander around and I’ll buy whatever catches my attention.”

 

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

“Jeet Kune Do: it’s just a name; don’t fuss over it. There’s no such thing as a style if you understand the roots of combat.”

 

Bruce Lee

“If people say Jeet Kune Do is different from this or from that, then let the name of Jeet Kune Do be wiped out, for that is what it is, just a name. Please don’t fuss over it.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Trans people deserve something vital. They deserve your respect… If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead, because the reality is I can take it. But for the thousands of kids out there who are coming to terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“There are enough tears in any child’s life; we certainly don’t need to add to them in the name of entertainment.”

 

Bruce Forsyth

“My name is Bruce Feiler, and I’m an explainaholic. I first heard this word used to describe Isaac Asimov, and I knew instantly that I suffered from the same condition. It’s the incurable desire to tell, shape, share, occasionally exaggerate, often elongate, and inevitably bungle a good story.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“Even Superman’s name reflects his creators’ biblical knowledge.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“Superman’s original name was Kal-El, or Swift God. His father’s name was Jor-El. Superman was clearly drawn as a modern-day god.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“The people who have impressed me most – and the closest I’ve come to having heroes – are the people who have devoted their lives to making things better for others. These are people whose names you never hear, people who work for Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam, and other humanitarian groups. They’re just out there in the world, doing stuff.”

 

Bruce Cockburn

“Much brass has been sounded and many cymbals tinkled in the name of advertising; but the advertisements which persuade people to act are written by men who have an abiding respect for the intelligence of their readers, and a deep sincerity regarding the merits of the goods they have to sell.”

Bruce Barton

“My name, as you may have guessed, is Theodore. I come from a strange stock. The members of my family were mostly epileptics, vegetarians, stutterers, triplets, nailbiters. But we’ve always been happy.”

Brother Theodore

“I’m a guy who just wanted to see his name in the lineup everyday. To me, baseball was a passion to the point of obsession.”

Brooks Robinson

“It was always a funny thing when someone would ask me my name and I would say “Brooklyn.” They would always think that I meant that I lived in Brooklyn, and I would have to clarify that.”

Brooklyn Sudano

“I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘Pity me; I came from modeling.’ It’s opened a lot of doors. People will take meetings because they’ve heard the name before. That’s an advantage that I have.”

Brooklyn Decker

“But he was sick of this charade. Sick of watching people lose a little more of their humanity each day, and sick to death of seeing people tortured in the name of God. What had happened to these people?”

 

Brom

“My name’s Peter. Can I play too?”
