“I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Time slips away and leaves you with nothing, mister, but boring stories of glory days.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Just sitting around waiting for my life to begin, while it was all just slipping away.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“In many places it is literally not safe physically for youngsters to go to school. And in many schools, and its becoming almost generally true, it is spiritually unsafe to attend public schools. Look back over the history of education to the turn of the century and the beginning of the educational philosophies, pragmatism and humanism were the early ones, and they branched out into a number of other philosophies which have led us now into a circumstance where our schools are producing the problems that we face.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“We live in a day when the adversary stresses on every hand the philosophy of instant gratification. We seem to demand instant everything, including instant solutions to our problems. . .It was meant to be that life would be a challenge. To suffer some anxiety, some depression, some disappointment, even some failure is normal.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“If I had to pick one tribe to go back and live with permanently – and I hate doing this, it’s not a contest – it would be the people of Anuta, in the South Pacific. It’s got white beaches, blue seas, good food and gentle, friendly people who have a wonderful philosophy of sharing. And it’s warm.”

 

Bruce Parry

“Know the difference between a catastrophe and an inconvenience. – To realize that it’s just an inconvenience, that it is not a catastrophe, but just an unpleasantness, is part of coming into your own, part of waking up.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Taoist philosophy is essentially monistic. Matter and energy, Yang and Yin, heaven and earth, are conceived of as essentially one or as two coexistent poles of one indivisible whole.”

 

Bruce Lee

“The Western approach to reality is mostly through theory, and theory begins by denying reality – to talk about reality, to go around reality, to catch anything that attracts our sense-intellect and abstract it away from reality itself. Thus philosophy begins by saying that the outside world is not a basic fact, that its existence can be doubted and that every proposition in which the reality of the outside world is affirmed is not an evident proposition but one that needs to be divided, dissected and analyzed. It is to stand consciously aside and try to square a circle.”

 

Bruce Lee

“I’m a philosophy major. That means I can think deep thoughts about being unemployed.”

 

Bruce Lee

“How can there be methods and systems to arrive at something that is living? To that which is static, fixed, dead, there can be a way, a definite path, but not to that which is living. Do not reduce reality to a static thing and then invent methods to reach it. …Truth has no path. Truth is living and, therefore, changing. It has no resting place, no form, no organized institution, no philosophy. When you see that, you will understand that this living thing is also what you are. You cannot express and be alive through static, put-together form, through stylized movement.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Made my bed and here I lie, try to hold my head up high. Lying to myself sometimes, bad decisions but I, I won’t cry.”

 

Bruce Hornsby

“The moment you change your perception is the moment you rewrite the chemistry of your body.”

 

Bruce H. Lipton

“Tyranny of freedom is do what you like. There’s a world gone crazy, cause it can’t say no.”

 

Bruce Dickinson

“In between effect and cause and just beyond the range of normal sight, this glittering joker was dancing in the dragon’s jaws.”

 

Bruce Cockburn

“I didn’t understand how you could be an actor if you didn’t also study philosophy and study political science, astronomy. And also just go out and live life and have experiences.”

 

Brit Marling

“Practice the philosophy of continuous improvement. Get a little bit better every single day.”

 

Brian Tracy

“I think a scientist’s job is to explore the Universe, to explore the cosmos around us. People always want to know – why is that useful? Well, on just pure fundamental grounds, on some level it’s like art, it’s like umm, music, it’s aesthetics, it’s like philosophy. You want to know where you are in the Universe.”

 

Brian Schmidt

“The trouble begins with a design philosophy that equates ‘more options’ with ‘greater freedom.'”

 

Brian Eno

“Composition is a way of living out your philosophy and calling it art.”

 

Brian Eno
