Famous quotes containing the words jack and/or bruce:

    The beast exists because it is stronger than the thing that you call evolution. In it is some force of life, a demon, driving it through millions of centuries. It does not surrender so easily to weaklings like you and me.
    Martin Berkeley, and Jack Arnold. Lucas (Nestor Paiva)

    The reason I’m in this business, I assume all performers are—it’s “Look at me, Ma!” It’s acceptance, you know—”Look at me, Ma, look at me, Ma, look at me, Ma.” And if your mother watches, you’ll show off till you’re exhausted; but if your mother goes, Ptshew!
    —Lenny Bruce (1925–1966)
