“It’s an eclectic film and I think we served the novel really well. And we had a great cast who worked for free. Everyone read it and said, I’m in, from Nick [Nolte] to Albert [Finney] to Omar [Epps] to Barbara [Hershey]. We really had fun and shot it in a very short time. I think the subject matter is more topical today, more to the point, than it was 30 years ago, when it concerned the Vietnam War.”

“I think that there are a lot of law enforcement officers out there who work according to their own set of what is right and what is wrong. And that doesn’t always include respect for administration cops, you know, people that are higher up the food chain.”

 

Bruce Willis

“When you think about where are you going to find that big love of your life, you seldom think it’s someone you already know. You think it’s someone you’re yet to meet.”

 

Bruce Willis

“There are lots of different parts of movie-making that I participate in, but my favorite part is the making of it. I’m scared, every day. I keep thinking someone’s going to throw me the ball and I’m going to go, “Oh, wow. Oh, god. I just messed that up.””

 

Bruce Willis

“I never think about the downs. Well, only when I get asked during interviews.”

 

Bruce Willis

“No one ever thinks about what the hell is going to happen 25 years from now.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I think that the “what if” game is what you guys get to do. I don’t have to do that. I hate the “what if” game. I’m such a believer in everything happening the way it’s supposed to happen.”

 

Bruce Willis

“All actors have to make the words fit in their mouths, and make the words the words fit to how you say it and how you make it life-like and make it look like what you’re saying is just conversation that you’re just thinking off the top of your head. That process is not quite improvisation.”

 

Bruce Willis

“If you think anyone goes out and commits crimes because of some daffy film they’ve seen, then I question your judgment.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I think probably the best example was the year Jack Palance dropped down and gave us push-ups when he accepted his award for supporting actor. Then we got to throw away a lot of the script because we just did Jack Palance jokes, because it was just too delicious, watching this old man carry on like that.”

“We’re shaking up a format, which I think is always a good thing. The thing about [2011 Oscar hosts] James [Franco] and Anne [Hathaway] is, they’ve both hosted Saturday Night Live, and they both did a good job at it. So they are accustomed to working with short rehearsal time, and live, lots of pressure, rewrites, things like that. They can make quick changes, which is very advantageous, and they’re skilled comedians.”

“We must think nationally about the [trails] system and act locally to link trails and make the system happen.”

 

Bruce Vento

“I think our grandparents were Victor Frankenstein. I basically am the kind of deeply unnatural creature that Mrs Shelley instinctively dreaded. I not only eat her sacred cows but I eat them with ketchup. While I take her point, I think that transgressive monstrosity and tampering with the life force are both a lot more fun than she suspected.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“David Brin is a technological determinist. He thinks that we understand the trend and we need to hop on it. I don’t have any such illusions.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“I used to think that cyberspace was fifty years away. What I thought was fifty years away, was only ten years away. And what I thought was ten years away… it was already here. I just wasn’t aware of it yet.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“Anything that can be done to a rat can be done to a human being. And we can do most anything to rats. This is a hard thing to think about, but it’s the truth. It won’t go away because we cover our eyes. THAT is cyberpunk.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“I don’t think there’s much distinction between surveillance and media in general. Better media means better surveillance. Cams are everywhere.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“I think 1960s small-town America was very Lynchian. Everything was there, but underneath, everything was rumbling.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Think of it this way: performing is like sprinting while screaming for three, four minutes. And then you do it again. And then you do it again. And then you walk a little, shouting the whole time. And so on. Your adrenaline quickly overwhelms your conditioning.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I think when you’re a child, you just cling to the basics, which is the basic story of Jesus and the crucifixion and hell and eternal punishment and the flames. This was all stuff that was – forget when you’re young.”
