“You can’t undo the past… but you can certainly not repeat it.”

 

Bruce Willis

“Badlands, you got to live it everyday, let the broken hearts stand as the price you’ve got to pay.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I’m just tired and bored with myself.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I got Mary pregnant and man that’s all she wrote. And for my 19th birthday, I got a union card and a factory coat.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“My soul is lost, my friend, tell me how do I begin again? My city’s in ruins, my city’s in ruins.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“You get used to anything, sooner or later it just becomes your life.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“It is a different breed of person who wants to be on a reality-TV show.”

 

Bruce Nash

Bruce Nash

Bruce Lee

“As long as we separate this oneness into two we won’t achieve realization.”

 

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

“The primary Reality is not what I think, but that I live, for those also live who do not think.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Take things as they are. Punch when you have to punch. Kick when you have to kick.”

 

Bruce Lee

“To me, racial barriers do not exist in reality. If I say that ‘everyone under the sun is a member of a universal family,’ you may think that I am bluffing and being idealistic. But if anyone still believes in racial differences, I think he is too backward and narrow in his perspective. Perhaps he still does not understand man’s equality and love.”

 

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.”
