“The press has let the country down. It’s taken a very amoral stand, in that essential issues are often portrayed as simply one side says this and the other side says that. I think that Fox News and the Republican right have intimidated the press into an incredible self-consciousness about appearing objective and backed them into a corner of sorts where they have ceded some of their responsibility and righteous power.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The Now is indivisible. Completeness, the now, is an absence of the conscious mind to strive to divide that which is indivisible. For once the completeness of things is taken apart it is no longer complete.”

 

Bruce Lee

“My fear, is that we are becoming so dependent on technology that if it was all taken away for some reason, some big incident, that we are losing our ability to function without it.”

Bruce Boxleitner

“I believe that creativity is a product of intelligence. I don’t believe that creative work can be produced by fools, dullards, or mediocre people, except in the rarest of accidents. Creativity is a product of desire, thought, experience, experimentation and inner conviction. Taken together, these five qualities imply intelligence and commitment.”

Bruce Barnbaum

“I like feet. I definitely have a fetish. I love to see a man’s bare foot, but it’s got to be taken care of. If they’re not well manicured, you’ve got to wonder what the rest of him is like. [laughs] I don’t want to get in bed with somebody and feel his gnarly feet.”

Brooke Burke

“Individuality is vitally important. When people start to lose their individuality is when I believe they start to lose themselves. I think children are born with this message, and it shouldn’t be taken away from them. I hope they walk away with it after seeing the film, and adults too. And I notice it also with myself, because the older I get, the more I embrace my own idiosyncrasies.”

 

Brittany Murphy

“I don’t think Hollywood per se is supposed to be taken seriously, otherwise, dear Lord, that would be frightening.”

 

Brittany Murphy

“I was home-schooled. My mom wasn’t a fan of public school systems. She was scared of letting me go. So, she home-schooled my siblings and I, and she was desperately trying to find something for me to do, for an extracurricular. She was trying to socialize me, so she put me in community theater and I was instantly taken by it.”

 

Britt Robertson

“I used to be a cool chick but I feel like the paparazzi has taken that away from me, like, the way I used to live my life. I used to be a cool chick but I’m not anymore.”

 

Britney Spears

“I’m very, very blessed. But my safety, my privacy, and my respect are three things that I feel like are trying to be taken away from me right now. As a mother I have to speak up and say something. I have to speak up.”

 

Britney Spears

“As Israel prepares to enter, my position is well known. It is one that I have taken at previous Olympics. It is wrong that the IOC refuses to have a minute’s silence for Israeli athletes that were slaughtered in Munich.”

 

Brian Williams

“Start with a picture of your goal as already achieved in the future, and work back to the present. Imagine the steps that you would have taken to get from where you are now to where you want to be.”

 

Brian Tracy

“I’m telling you, November 8, we better be careful, because that presidential election is going to be rigged. And I hope the Republicans are watching closely, or it’s going to be taken away from us.”

 

Brian Stelter

“Walk on water? I know most people out there will be saying that instead of walking on it, I should have taken more of it with my drinks. They are absolutely right.”

 

Brian Clough

“Governing isn’t as easy as you think. Many of you have taken pledges that are contradictory – to balance the budget and cut taxes, for example. You must be honest about the numbers, since our annual deficit now exceeds all discretionary spending combined.”

 

Brian Baird

“There are days I drop words of comfort on myself like falling leaves and remember that it is enough to be taken care of by myself.”

 

Brian Andreas

“Whoever writes a bad review, I put their name on a list, and they’re going to get taken care of one day down the road. Otherwise, I don’t let it bother me. The truth is, these are review-proof movies. The audiences are going to see it. My audience, our audience, isn’t reading Esquire magazine to see if my movie is good or not. They just want to laugh, to be entertained, and lose themselves.”

Brett Ratner

“You can’t get big in hockey. You need to be pliable… they’ve even taken fighting out of the game, so there’s no more of those big huge guys who just fight.”

Brett Hull

“All my life, I’ve been a type 1 diabetic. I’ve always taken life day by day.”

Bret Michaels

“The seeds of love have taken hold and if we won’t burn together, I’ll burn alone.”

Bret Easton Ellis
