Bruce Springsteen

»Earlier, Springsteen had committed himself to finding Purpose, something large and outside himself. Now, he`s decided or realized that the purpose is in the doing; meaning isn´t found in life, it´s inserted there, as the result of what we do day by day.«
Dave Marsh, Two Hearts S. 631

»We have one simple idea – we are on the planet to do it for you one more time. [Laughs] What happened yesterday or the year before or 30 years ago – we hope we did a good job then. But we are here to do it for you one [pauses] more [pauses] time. We’re trying to write one more song that’s going to mean something to you, the way I hope some of my earlier music connected. And we’re here to play one more show that feels like tonight was the greatest night we ever played. That’s just a road-dog code of honor. We’re not out here to pass the time.«
Bruce im RollingStone Interview, Juni 2013

»The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.«
Dr Martin Luther King
»...I've also lived long enough to know that arc doesn't bend on its own. It needs all of us leaning on it, nudging it in the right direction day after day. You gotta keep, keep leaning.«
Bruce Springsteen

»We were out in the desert, over in the summertime, driving to Nevada, and we came upon this house on the side of the road that this Indian had built. Had a big picture of Geronimo out front, said ‘Landlord’ over the top… Had this big sign said “This is a land of peace, love, justice and no mercy.” And it pointed down this little dirt road that said “Thunder Road”.«
Bruce Springsteen introducing Thunder Road, Capitol Theater, Passaic, N.J., September 19, 1978

»Just live every day as if you're gonna live forever.«
Springsteen`s Tante Ida
