“In my experience, God rarely makes our fear disappear. Instead, He asks us to be strong and take courage. What is courage? As Ordinary discovered, courage is not the absence of fear; rather, it’s choosing to act in spite of the fear. You could say that without fear, you can’t have genuine courage.”

“Wonder Woman presents a challenge because she needs to be drop-dead gorgeous, but also very, very strong both physically and emotionally. She’s a powerful presence and we had to find that balance between athleticism and glamour.”

 

Bruce Timm

“The athlete who is building muscles though weight training should be very sure to work adequately on speed and flexibility at the same time. In combat, without the prior attributes, a strong man will be like the bull with its colossal strength futilely pursuing the matador or like a low-geared truck chasing a rabbit.”

 

Bruce Lee

“A powerful athlete is not a strong athlete, but one who can exert his strength quickly. Since power equals force times speed, if the athlete learns to make faster movements he increases his power, even though the contractile pulling strength of his muscles remains unchanged. Thus, a smaller man who can swing faster may hit as hard or as far as the heavier man who swings slowly.”

 

Bruce Lee

“There is a powerful craving in most of us to see ourselves as instruments in the hands of others and thus free ourselves from the responsibility for acts which are prompted by our own questionable inclinations and impulses. Both the strong and the weak grasp at this alibi. The latter hide their malevolence under the virtue of obedience: they acted dishonorably because they had to obey orders. The strong, too, claim absolution by proclaiming themselves the chosen instrument of a higher power — God, history, fate, nation, or humanity.”

 

Bruce Lee

“My films often have a very strong strain of irony, or even sarcasm, which is definitely related to homosexual camp. But it is by no means straightforward: quite often I am sincere when I appear to be sarcastic, and I am sarcastic when I appear to be sincere. I also try to contradict myself at least once a day, which is a camp must.”

 

Bruce LaBruce

“You can fight based on a strong mind, based on developing your muscles and reflexes, training your motor functions and going back again. Having a strong enough mind to actually put them into action. This is not actually terribly different from what an Olympic athlete does – and essentially describes the process of becoming an Olympic athlete.”

 

Bruce Frantzis

“After a while, a surprising theme emerged. The single most important thing you can do for your family may be the simplest of all: Develop a strong family narrative.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“It is the rare and strong person that can carry their trauma without having it spill into the next generation.”

 

Bruce D. Perry

“Everything that makes a society run is broken in Iraq. The only real structure is the people’s own sense of themselves as Iraqis, which was very strong. They’re a proud people, and they trace their historic roots way, way back.”

 

Bruce Cockburn

“The Savior desires to save us from our inadequacies as well as our sins. Inadequacy is not the same as being sinful – we have far more control over the choice to sin than we may have over our innate capacity. . . . A sense of falling short or falling down is not only natural but essential to the mortal experience. Still, after all we can do, the Atonement can fill that which is empty, straighten our bent parts, and make strong that which is weak.”

 

Bruce C. Hafen

“I was nurtured in the church; I went to a Catholic school; I was an altar boy; I went to a Catholic university; I was steeped in the moral tradition of the Catholic Church. My Catholicism plays a very strong role. But I thought President John F.Kennedy answered rather well when he said that ultimately my conduct as a public official does not come ex cathedra from Rome; it comes from my conscience.”

Bruce Babbitt

“I say to myself, go on seeking, be glad for being sensitive, be glad you’re able to go beyond the resistance inside you. It is our resistance to what we experience that makes creativity possible. So don’t get rid of resistance like that by going around it or trying to eliminate it. Our own limitations put up strong resistance, but it’s because of that that we are creators”

“When I was at Baylor, I wasn’t fully happy because I couldn’t be all the way out. It feels so good saying it: I am a strong, black lesbian woman.”

 

Brittney Griner

“I am a strong, black lesbian woman. Every single time I say it, I feel so much better.”

 

Brittney Griner

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

 

Britt Nicole

“Whereas before I was a young, blonde girl who would do what she was told. I know who I am as a person and I’m getting damn strong.”

 

Britney Spears

“I think I’m more grounded, you know, and I know what I want out of life and I’m, you know, my morals are really, you know, strong and I have major beliefs about certain things and I think that has helped me, you know, from being, you know, coming from a really small town.”
