Bruce Springsteen

Bruce McCulloch

“All these guys picking on smart kids and calling them geeks and dweebs are going to grow up and want to know why they don’t do something about the terrible state the world is in. I can tell you why. By the time they grow up, most of the kids who realy could have changed things are wrecked.”


Bruce Coville

“Being a bigger person, whether you’re male or female, in entertainment, it can hurt your chances. Because people look to you to be a so-called superstar. Perfect body, perfect figure, good looking, and smart. And larger people, we have to fit in anywhere we can and the best way we can, so to speak. The way the world looks at you at being perfect, and nobody’s perfect.”

Bruce Bruce

“Talkers have always ruled. They will continue to rule. The smart thing is to join them.”

Brock Lesnar

“I think most teen comedies are probably played in a way that aren’t geared towards people that are wanting to be entertained but also [see] something that has a lot of heart to it. The things we do in the movie – it has a lot of heart, and also it’s really smart. The people and the characters that we are, we’re really intelligent people that are using our tactics to get back at a guy. The moral of being who you are, and trusting yourself, finding your inner strength – I think that’s something that most teen movies don’t really dial into.”


Brittany Snow

“We get so worried about being pretty. Let’s be pretty kind. Pretty funny. Pretty smart. Pretty strong.”


Britt Nicole

“I just want to say that um, I’m just really, really shocked at like how nice our world is because it’s just so nice. Like oh my God! Like, the other day, like I was sitting there and I saw these magazines and they said I was pregnant, and like, it’s so true. Like America, believe everything you read. Because, like, you’re smart and I’m stupid. Like for real. Come on y’all.”


Britney Spears

“People love fast. When you’re fast people think you’re smart, think your products are of higher quality, think your management is of higher quality, think that you’re worth more and they’re willing to pay more money for it. So, I’m really big into speed.”


Brian Tracy

“Something I’ve realized lately, to my shock, is that I am an optimist, in that I think humans are almost infinitely capable of self-change and self-modification, and that we really can build the future that we want if we’re smart about it.”


Brian Eno

“It’s like my characters, all my men are Dad and me in a mess; all my female characters are smart and hopeful, like Mom just trying to make the best of things.”

Bret Easton Ellis

“I really believe that readers are smart and sophisticated enough to realize that the author is not the narrator of his novels.”

Bret Easton Ellis

“I feel like I’m not smart enough to answer the questions I’m asked.”

Bret Easton Ellis

“So it was a really pleasant surprise when [Independence Day] turned out to be a successful film. I don’t know if you’ve heard that they’re going to be re-releasing it next Fourth of July in 3-D. I’ve actually only seen it once, and it was in Hawaii, in a little theater in Oahu shortly after it was released. But Roland Emmerich is a really smart guy, and he makes really fun movies to watch.”

Brent Spiner

“Bill Prady and Chuck Lorre, the guys who run that show [Big Bang Theory], are really funny and really smart, and the cast is fantastic to work with.”
