Famous quotes containing the words mclaren and/or bruce:

    Our culture has become something that is completely and utterly in love with its parent. It’s become a notion of boredom that is bought and sold, where nothing will happen except that people will become more and more terrified of tomorrow, because the new continues to look old, and the old will always look cute.
    —Malcolm McLaren (b. 1946)

    The liberals can understand everything but people who don’t understand them.
    —Lenny Bruce (1925–1966)
