“Never present a power-user option in such a way that normal users must learn all about it in order to know they don’t need to use it.”


Bruce Tognazzini

“They wanted to know why I did what I did. Well, sir I guess there’s just meanness in the world.”


Bruce Springsteen

“Judge said, what you got in your defense son? Fifty-seven channels and nothing on.”


Bruce Springsteen

“If they had told me I was the janitor and would have to mop up and clean the toilets after the show in order to play, I probably would have done it.”


Bruce Springsteen

“Take hold of your life and order yourself to be valiant.”


Boyd K. Packer

“To invent something you have to be removed from the world. In order to have liberty to imagine something better, you need to step outside for a while.”


Bruce Mau

“I believe in teaching just a few students, as teaching requires a constant alert observation on each individual in order to establish a direct relationship. A good teacher cannot be fixed in a routine, and many are just that. During teaching, each moment requires a sensitive mind that is constantly changing and constantly adapting.”


Bruce Lee

“In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup.”


Bruce Lee

“In order to realize our true self we must be willing to live without being dependent upon the opinion of others.”


Bruce Lee

“Emptiness the starting point. — In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup. My friend, drop all your preconceived and fixed ideas and be neutral. Do you know why this cup is useful? Because it is empty.”


Bruce Lee

“In order to control myself I must first accept myself by going with and not against my nature.”


Bruce Lee

“There is a tendency under capitalism system to reduce everything to a kind of commodity fetish, and this order tends to promote extremely conventional and uniform expressions of gender and sexuality in order to promote certain products and lifestyle choices that are commercialized. This necessarily entails a capitulation to heteronormativity, or in the case of the new gay movement, a “homonormativity” that doesn’t stray far from the heterosexual paradigm. Anyone who questions these normative values and conventions is subject to disapproval, hostility, or even violence.”


Bruce LaBruce

“Our instinct as parents is to order our kids around — it’s easier, and frankly, we’re usually right. [But] reverse the waterfall as much as possible. Enlist the children in their own upbringing.”


Bruce Feiler

“The complexity of C++ (even more complexity has been added in the new C++), and the resulting impact on productivity, is no longer justified. All the hoops that the C++ programmer had to jump through in order to use a C-compatible language make no sense anymore – they’re just a waste of time and effort. Now, Go makes much more sense for the class of problems that C++ was originally intended to solve.”


Bruce Eckel

“The faults of advertising are only those common to all human institutions. If advertising speaks to a thousand in order to influence one, so does the church. And if it encourages people to live beyond their means, so does matrimony. Good times, bad times, there will always be advertising. In good times, people want to advertise; in bad times they have to.”

Bruce Barton

“In order to form a habit of conversing with GOD continually, and referring all we do to Him, we must at first apply to Him with some diligence: but that after a little care we should find His love inwardly excite us to it without any difficulty.”

Brother Lawrence

“In order to know God, we must often think of Him; and when we come to love Him, we shall then also think of Him often, for our heart will be with our treasure.”

Brother Lawrence

“Miracles happen. They have happened to me and they are happening to you. You need only look to the people in your lives in order to see them.”

Brooke Ellison

“Life isn’t always easy and we are never guaranteed that things will always go smoothly…It progresses with an almost constant series of challenges, but these obstacles are just detours that we have to take in order to meet our ultimate goals. No matter what sort of adversity or challenge you might face, you can always believe that, with hope, it can be conquered and, in the end, you will be stronger for it.”

Brooke Ellison

“An order given in battle, an instruction issued by the master of a sailing ship, a cry for help, are as powerful in modifying the course of events as any other bodily act…You utter a vow or forge a signature and you may find yourself bound for life to a monastery, a woman or prison.”


Bronislaw Malinowski
