“We live in a post-authentic world, and today authenticity is a house of mirrors. It’s all just what you’re bringing when the lights go down. It’s your teachers, your influences, and your personal history. At the end of the day, it’s the power and purpose of your music that still matters.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“There is a temptation for the writer or the teacher of Church history to want to tell everything, whether it is worthy or faith promoting or not. Some things that are true are not very useful.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“A good teacher is like a good artist. They go right to the most difficult part of whatever’s going on.”

 

Bruce Nauman

“I believe in teaching just a few students, as teaching requires a constant alert observation on each individual in order to establish a direct relationship. A good teacher cannot be fixed in a routine, and many are just that. During teaching, each moment requires a sensitive mind that is constantly changing and constantly adapting.”

 

Bruce Lee

“A teacher is never a giver of truth; he is a guide, a pointer to the truth that each student must find for himself.”

 

Bruce Lee

“False teachers of the Way of life use flowery words.”

 

Bruce Lee

“A good teacher can never be fixed in a routine… each moment requires a sensitive mind that is constantly changing and constantly adapting. A teacher must never impose this student to fit his favourite pattern; a good teacher functions as a pointer, exposing his student’s vulnerability and causing him to explore both internally and finally integrating himself with his being. Martial art should not be passed out indiscriminately.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Put every great teacher in a room, and they’d agree about everything, but put their disciples in there and they’d argue about everything.”

 

Bruce Lee

“A good teacher protects his pupils from his own influence.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Life itself is your teacher, and you are in a state of constant learning.”

 

Bruce Lee

“I was afraid the teacher was going to make me read in front of class and I was going to look bad. [But] if I wasn’t dyslexic, I probably wouldn’t have won the Games. If I had been a better reader, then that would have come easily, sports would have come easily. And I never would have realized that the way you get ahead in life is hard work.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“I didn’t only have a perceptual problem, I was also so nervous and so upset. The process just didn’t work. I lost enthusiasm for school and I flunked second grade. The teachers said I was lazy.”

 

Bruce Jenner

“Teachers need to be more inspirational. But it’s also up to engineering to make itself more interesting.”

 

Bruce Dickinson

“The real heroes are the librarians and teachers who at no small risk to themselves refuse to lie down and play dead for censors.”

 

Bruce Coville

“My teachers believe that the creative producer’s job is to service the vision of the director, to stay within schedule and budget, and to get the studio what they need, but you work for the director to get their vision on the screen. That’s not how everyone approaches producing, but it is certainly how directors like you to approach producing. How I was brought up is that my job is to help you make the movie you want to make.”

 

Bruce Cohen

“If you are going to do anything, you must expect criticism. But it’s better to be a doer than a critic. The doer moves; the critic stands still, and is passed by.”

Bruce Barton

“Emptiness is that which frees us from religiosity and leads us to true spirituality.”

Brother Lawrence

“I have abandoned all particular forms of devotion, all prayer techniques. My only prayer practice is attention. I carry on a habitual, silent, and secret conversation with God that fills me with overwhelming joy.”

Brother Lawrence

“I was always keen to get involved in the school drama productions and was a member of the school choir. I was lucky to have attended schools that took music and drama very seriously and the teachers were just brilliant.”

 

Bronagh Gallagher

“The world is a beautiful place, travel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers. I even have a ring of support around my bed as I type … Goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!”
