“Beyond the mythology, Wonder Woman gets to play with several dichotomies. It’s Amazon culture versus man’s world; ancient mythological times versus the contemporary world; and, of course, all the male and female issues.”

 

Bruce Timm

“If poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world, science fiction writers are its court jesters. We are Wise Fools who can leap, caper, utter prophecies, and scratch ourselves in public. We can play with Big Ideas because the garish motley of our pulp origins make us seem harmless.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“I know your mama she don’t like me, cause I play in a rock and roll band.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I’m used to writing something, it becomes a record, it comes out. Then I go perform and I play it and I get this immediate feedback from the audience. So that’s been the pattern of my life.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“By the time I was 19, my parents weren’t very authoritative over my life.I didn’t have any doubt about that – at that time about what I was going to do or where I was going. I was a musician. I was going to play. I had a band. We were going to make enough money to survive on.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I was looking for some way to put my music to some service on a nightly basis. You go into a town, you play a little music, you leave something behind. That idea connected us to the local community. It was a very simple idea, but it really resonated with me.”

 

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

“Though methods play an important role in the early stage, the techniques should not be too mechanical, complex or restrictive. If we cling blindly to them, we shall eventually become bound by their limitations. Remember, you are expressing the techniques and not doing the techniques. If somebody attacks you, your response is not Technique No.1, Stance No. 2, Section 4, Paragraph 5. Instead you simply move in like sound and echo, without any deliberation. It is as though when I call you, you answer me, or when I throw you something, you catch it. It’s as simple as that – no fuss, no mess.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Turn your sparring into play – but always play seriously.”

 

Bruce Lee

“My ex-wife has never broken 150. I wish she would stop telling people I taught her how to play golf.”

 

Bruce Lansky

“I’ll always remember the day I broke ninety. I had a few beers in the clubhouse and was so excited I forgot to play the back nine.”

 

Bruce Lansky

“Some golfers fantasize about playing in a foursome with Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Sam Snead. The way I hit I’d rather play in a foursome with Helen Keller, Ray Charles, and Stevie Wonder.”

 

Bruce Lansky

“A champion plays the game; a spectator observes, criticizes and never really gets to live. A champion knows what he or she wants and goes after it with carefully calculated goals and no-holds-barred action. A spectator feels that his or her life is not their own. They let others dictate their destiny. They become victims of life instead of masters of it.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I’m a kid for a living: I get to play the piano for a living.”

 

Bruce Hornsby

“We still play three or four hits every night. Now, we don’t play them like the record. We try to find new ways to do it.”

 

Bruce Hornsby

“If I go out one night, I must stay in the next. It’s the same with my golf. If I play one day, I don’t play the next. I try to pace myself.”

 

Bruce Forsyth

“It could still be a good night if you play your cards right.”

 

Bruce Forsyth

“Knowing more about family history is the single biggest predictor of a child’s emotional well-being. Grandparents can play a special role in this process, too.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“I’m not good at living in the grim places…when we did Gatsby, I lived in Claridges, that’s where I wanted to live. I can’t live in grimness and then go play a classy human being.”

 

Bruce Dern

“There’s no time in life to do all the roles I’d like to play.”
