“You can’t be afraid of getting old. Old is good, if you’re gathering in life. Our band is good at understanding that equation.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Understanding comes about through feeling, from moment to moment in the mirror of relationship.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Through my own observations. I am convinced that an absolutely honest and direct inquiry into oneself will lead to understanding.”

 

Bruce Lee

“We shall find the answer when we examine the problem, the problem is never apart from the answer, the problem IS the answer, understanding the problem dissolves the problem.”

 

Bruce Lee

“If you follow the classical pattern, you are understanding the routine, the tradition, the shadow — you are not understanding yourself.”

 

Bruce Lee

“The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Understanding requires not just a moment of perception, but a continuous awareness, a continuous state of inquiry without conclusion”

 

Bruce Lee

“Never be possessive. If a female friend lets on that she is going out with another man, be kind and understanding. If she says she would like to go out with the Dallas Cowboys, including the coaching staff, the same rule applies.”

 

Bruce Jay Friedman

“One of the problems with the kill-or-capture metric is that it has often been to the exclusion of having a deeper, richer understanding of the movement, its origins, and our adversaries’ mindset. The nuances are absolutely critical. Our adversaries are wedded to the ideology that informs and fuels their struggle, and, by not paying attention, we risk not knowing our enemy.”

 

Bruce Hoffman

“I kind of joke with myself that you shouldn’t be able to be a creative producer if you weren’t a first AD. Because it is such fantastic training for really understanding what everyone does, and how the movie actually gets made. You have to know if you’re the first you’re kind of the set general, you’re at the director’s right hand, you know everything about how a director puts a movie together, you know everything about how a movie gets made.”

 

Bruce Cohen

“All these years of thinking, ending up like this: In front of all this beauty, understanding nothing.”

 

Bruce Cockburn

“Abraham Lincoln was not all brooding and melancholy and patient understanding. There was a hard core in him, and plenty of toughness. He could recognize a revolutionary situation when he saw one, and he could act fast and ruthlessly to meet it.”

 

Bruce Catton

“Forty is better than 30. I have a better understanding of who I am, what makes me tick, what’s okay and not okay.”

Brooke Burke

“I’m going to have sex when it feels right but at the moment ? I just don’t feel ready, Justin is very understanding.”

 

Britney Spears

“Understanding dissolves fear. When we understand the true nature of our being, fears dissipate. We are spiritual beings, not human beings.”

 

Brian Weiss

“Understand the nature and influence of repeating patterns, from childhood experiences or even from past lives. Wthout understanding, patterns tend to repeat, unnecessarily damaging the relationship.”

 

Brian Weiss

“Tony [Campolo] and I might disagree on the details, but I think we are both trying to find an alternative to both traditional Universalism and the narrow, exclusivist understanding of hell [that unless you explicitly accept and follow Jesus, you are excluded from eternal life with God and destined for hell].”

 

Brian D. McLaren

“If people don’t have an understanding of what science is and what scientists do, then they can tend to think that global warming, for example, is just a matter of opinion.”

 

Brian Cox

“At every stage of understanding the universe better, the benefits to civilisation have been immeasurable. None of those big leaps were made with us knowing what was going to happen.”

 

Brian Cox

“Deeper understanding confers that most precious thing – wonder.”

 

Brian Cox
