Examples of Bruce in a Sentence

  1. Jessica Tarlov:

    I believe Bruce Springsteen was thinking of, as many of us have, immigration policies that this administration has enacted and the betrayal of what it says on the Statue of Liberty, so I think that would have perhaps been a better way to go about this. But also, Bruce Springsteen is not a political pundit, right? Hes talking from his heart.

  2. Riki Wilchins:

    You want to wish Bruce the best. But at the same time, you wish it wasn't being played out for reality-TV entertainment, yes, it's great that we're educating people. But we're talking about a civil rights issue that keeps getting recast as entertainment.

  3. Quentin Tarantino:

    Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy, i didn't just make a lot of that up. I heard Bruce Lee say things like that, to that effect. People are saying,' Well, Bruce Lee never said Bruce Lee could beat up Muhammad Ali.' Uh, yeah, Bruce Lee did. Not only did Bruce Lee say that, Bruce Lee wife, Linda Lee, said that. In the first biography I ever read was Linda Lee's' Bruce Lee : The Man Only I Knew,' and Linda Lee absolutely said it.

  4. Jackie Stewart:

    She could take down 26 racing cars on the same track at the same time on one single stopwatch. As did Betty Hill, Pat Surtees, Bruce McLaren’s wife, Jochen Rindt’s Bruce McLaren wife, it was Nora Tyrrell and Helen Stewart timing for the whole team, but at the same time in the race doing a lap chart for 26 cars. Here’s the sharpness, a laser brain... and then suddenly not remembering the most simple thing.

  5. Glenn Harnett:

    The longer Bruce Lanphear’re able to let the tree air outside of Bruce Lanphear home, the better.
