I like narrative storytelling as being part of a tradition,
a folk tradition.
- Bruce Springsteen

Blind faith in your leaders, or in anything,
will get you killed.
- Bruce Springsteen

I always wanted my music to influence the life you
were living emotionally -
with your family,
your lover, your wife, and, at a certain point,
with your children.
- Bruce Springsteen

But I think that your entire life is a process of sorting
out some of those early messages that you got.
- Bruce Springsteen

I do a lot of curiosity buying; I buy it if I like the album cover,
I buy it if I like the name of the band,
anything that sparks my imagination.
I still like to go to record stores,
I like to just wander around and I'll buy whatever catches my attention.
- Bruce Springsteen

The only thing I can say about having this type of
success is that you can get yourself in trouble because
basically the world is set open for you.
People will say yes to anything you ask,
so it's basically down to you and what you want or need.
- Bruce Springsteen

Yeah, my son likes a lot of guitar bands.
He gave me something the other day which was really good.
He'll burn a CD for me full of things that he has,
so he's a pretty good call if I want to check some of that stuff out...
The other two aren't quite into that yet.
- Bruce Springsteen

I didn't know if it would be a success-ful one,
or what the stages would be, but I always saw myself
as a lifetime musician and songwriter.
- Bruce Springsteen

I think that is what film and art and music do;
they can work as a map of sorts for your feelings.
- Bruce Springsteen

I tend to be a subscriber to the idea that you have
everything you need by the time you're 12 years old
to do interesting writing for most of the rest of your life -
certainly by the time you're 18.
- Bruce Springsteen

I was always concerned with writing to my age at a particular moment.
That was the way I would keep faith with the audience
that supported me as I went along.
- Bruce Springsteen

I'm a synthesist.
I'm always making music.
And I make a lot of different kinds of music all the time.
Some of it gets finished and some of it doesn't.
- Bruce Springsteen

When I first started in rock, I had a big guy's audience for my early records.
I had a very straight image, particularly through the mid '80s.
- Bruce Springsteen

Basically, I was pretty ostracized in my hometown.
Me and a few other guys were the town freaks-
and there were many occasions when we were dodging
getting beaten up ourselves.
- Bruce Springsteen

In the early years, I found a voice that was my voice
and also partly my father's voice.
But isn't that what you always do? Why do kids at 5
years old go into the closet and put their daddy's shoes on? Hey,
my kids do it.
- Bruce Springsteen

Yeah, I had gay friends.
The first thing I realized was that everybody's different,
and it becomes obvious that all of the gay stereotypes are ridiculous.
- Bruce Springsteen

The audiences are there as a result of my history with
the band but also as a result of my being able to reach people with a tune.
- Bruce Springsteen

My only general rule was to steer away from things
I played with the band over the past couple of tours.
I was interested in re-shaping the Rising material for live shows,
so people could hear the bare bones of that.
- Bruce Springsteen

No, I always felt that amongst my core fans-
because there was a level of popularity that I had
in the mid '80s that was sort of a bump on the scale-
they fundamentally understood the values that are at work in my work.
- Bruce Springsteen

You can go from doing something quite silly to something
dead serious in the blink of an eye,
and if you're making those connections with your audience
then they're going to go right along with it.
- Bruce Springsteen

In the past, some of the songs that were the most fun,
and the most entertaining and rocking,
fell by the wayside because I was concerned with what
I was going to say and how I was going to say it.
- Bruce Springsteen

Your spoken voice is a part of it - not a big part of it,
but it's something.
It puts people at ease, and once again kind of reaches
out and makes a bridge for what's otherwise difficult music.
- Bruce Springsteen

The best music is essentially there to provide you
something to face the world with.
- Bruce Springsteen

Your success story is a bigger story than whatever
you're trying to say on stage.
Success makes life easier.
It doesn't make living easier.
- Bruce Springsteen

The best music, you can seek some shelter in it momentarily,
but it's essentially there to provide you something to face the world with.
- Bruce Springsteen

But then I go through long periods where I don't listen to things,
usually when I'm working.
In between the records and in between the writing I
suck up books and music and movies and anything I can find.
- Bruce Springsteen

This music is forever for me.
It's the stage thing, that rush moment that you live for.
It never lasts, but that's what you live for.
- Bruce Springsteen

I hadn't performed by myself in a while.
It feels very natural to me, and I assume people come
for the very same reasons as they do when I'm with the band:
to be moved,
for something to happen to them.
- Bruce Springsteen

If they had told me I was the janitor and would have
to mop up and clean the toilets after the show in order to play,
I probably would have done it.
- Bruce Springsteen

Plus, you know, when I was young, there was a lot of
respect for clowning in rock music -
look at Little Richard.
It was a part of the whole thing, and I always also
believed that it released the audience.
- Bruce Springsteen

I have my ideas, I have my music and I also just enjoy showing off,
so that's a big part of it.
Also, I like to get up onstage and behave insanely
or express myself physically,
and the band can get pretty silly.
- Bruce Springsteen

I can sing very comfortably from my vantage point because
a lot of the music was about a loss of innocence,
there's innocence contained in you but there's also
innocence in the process of being lost.
- Bruce Springsteen

My image had always been very heterosexual,
very straight.
So it was a nice experience for me, a chance to clarify
my own feelings about gay and lesbian civil rights.
- Bruce Springsteen

It's a sad man my friend who's livin' in his own skin
and can't stand the company.
- Bruce Springsteen

The best and most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.

cannot be seen or even touched,
they must be felt with the heart.

and anyone who does not remember betrays them again.
- Elie Wiesel

I have felt cats rubbing their faces against mine and
touching my cheek with claws carefully sheathed.
These things, to me, are expressions of love.
- James Herriot

Family life was wonderful.
The streets were bleak.
The playgrounds were bleak.
But home was always warm.
My mother and father had a great relationship.
I always felt 'safe' there.
- Robert Cormier

I always felt that the great high privilege,
relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.
- Katherine Mansfield

I'm more comfortable with whatever's wrong with me
than my father was whenever he felt he failed or didn't
measure up to the standard he set.
- John Malkovich

Give your time and efforts freely or not at all.
When you are tempted to say,
"Oh, if I have to, I'll skip my golf game
and watch my daughter play soccer," don't do it.
Either generate the heart-felt emotion
to make the free-will gift,
"I'd love to watch your game today, Sandy,"
or the honesty to decline the request gracefully.
Martyrdom doesn't create happiness
for any of the parties involved.
An honest, "No" is preferable to a coerced "Yes."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I have never truly felt worthy of all that I have been given.

False guilt is guilt felt at not being what other people
feel one ought to be or assume that one is.
- R. D. Laing

When I visited the campus, I was hiding behind trees,
I felt so unworthy.

My doctor felt that the main contributing factor was
so many years of malnutrition,
especially during my formative years,
even before I got into modeling.

then it's going to come back to you.

even my older brother.

I felt as the child in this situation,
not just how it feels to be me.
