I don’t feel the need to defendmyselfanymore – I am a woman. I feel differently and I think differently than a man. If you’re going to bully me or laugh at me because something makes me emotional – you go right ahead because that’s what makes me a woman, and I don’t want to be anything but that.
One of the things that defines YA is a really strong narrative. Adults love YA because, at the end of the day, they’re good stories and page-turners. The other element is emotion.

The more people have, the less content they seem to be. In America, the cultural expectation that we’re to be happy all the time and our children are to be happy all the time is toxic, and I think that really gets in the way of emotional well-being.
I’ve worked with women who I’ve never wanted to tell anything about myself to, and I’ve worked with guys who have been pouring wells of emotion. So emotional availability is not a gender-specific thing.

I do a job and am lucky enough to do a job that I love, but it is a hard one. I’m not saying it is as hard as working in a coalmine, but it is still difficult in a different way.

Certainly we want to protect our children from new and painful experiences that are beyond their emotional comprehension and that intensify anxiety; and to a point we can preventpremature exposure to such experiences.
Seeing TaylorSwift live in 2013 is seeing a maestro at the top of her or anyone‘s game. No other pop auteur can touch her right now for emotional excess or musical reach – her punk is so punk, her disco is so disco. The red sequins on her guitarmatch the ones on her microphone, her shoes and 80 percent of the crowd.
Audiences like me doing action and comedy. I am a jovial person and have been so from childhood. I like to laugh my way through my work, and that attitudereflects in my roles. Even women hate me doing rona-dhona roles. So I don’t do emotional films.
If you invent something, you’re doing a creative act. It’s like writing a novel or composing music. You put your heart and soul into it, and money. It’s years of your life, it’s your house remortgaged, huge emotional investment and financial investment.
There’s only one music video that had an emotional impact on me, and that’s ‘Hurt’ by JohnnyCash. That’s exceptional. There is no music video I can think of apart from that one that really reaches you inside.

For me and my films, I want my audience to experience cinema in its full glory. It’s not just visual, it’s audio as well. It’s emotional, and I want you to be engaged with not just the scene but with the characters.
There is no evidence that dogs have the kind of complex emotional lives and value systems that we do. It’s one reason why we love them so much, in fact. They are neither “good” nor “bad.” They don’t hold grudges, act in petty ways, or seek revenge. They read our moods, but not our minds.
I think I don’t sing as hard as I used to sing. I used to kind of hit the accelerator a lot back in my youth, but now it’s just being able to control it, and not work it so hard and use more of an emotional or sub textual kind of approach to singing.
Indian actors, because of the format of our stories, need to be good actors, and be able to perform emotional sequences, do a bit of comedy, dance and singing, action, because all of this formsjust one film. In many ways I’d say there are greaterdemands on Indian actors than there are on Hollywood.
People who fail to use their emotional intelligence skills are more likely to turn to other, less effective means of managing their mood. They are twice as likely to experience anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and even thoughts of suicide.
Even when you’re producing difficult material and you get emotional, after it you feel good; you feel like you’ve done a good job, or had an emotional release. I’ve always enjoyed that, but you go home and think, that was a good day‘s work, and you move on.
I usually can find a way to do a character to make it real and work. But sometimes it’s a struggle sustaining that, because there’s such a level of personal involvement and personal, physical, and emotional distraughtness.

I don’t care if you are religious or not and I think the message is that at the end of the day, everybody has to mature and everybody has to heal and mend their own injuries, emotional injuries, on their own pace.

In the past I’ve been very into the falling part, very into the swimming in the dark, deep emotional water. ‘Rampart’ I really went into it and it took me three times as long to get out of that depression as it did to just do the scenes. I had to learn to give it my all and then go home and laugh.
With big, emotional roles it’s very easy, especially if you’ve grown up in the American school of acting, to exploit your own pain. You have to be careful about that, because 9 times out of 10, your pain is not appropriate to the character.
If war occurs, that positive adult contact in every shape is needed more than ever. It will be a matter of emotional life and death. There’s not a handy one-minute way of talking to your kid about war.

In ‘The Prophet‘ I really fell in love with those characters, there was an emotional connection there that I don’t think I’ve had in a while. It made me think it would be nice to stick with the characters for a little bit and see what happens.

Classical music’s ability to translate emotional themes is fantastic.
Beauty is an asset, just like physical prowess, charisma, brains or emotional intelligence. The key with any gift is in the way that you use it. It doesn’t define you as a person. Rather, it’s an asset to be used judiciously and with an understanding of how it is just a small part of who you are.
There were time when I was into method acting that I did have moments of residual character emotions, because the method bases your emotional responses as a character on emotional experiences from your real life.

I thoroughly enjoyed working on Enemy of the State. TonyScott is an important director, and has an amazing ability to express himself, and he doesn’t do it in musical terms, he does it in emotional terms. I got along really well with him.
To see him there lifeless and breathless was very emotional for me. But I held myself together because I knew he’s very much alive in his spirit, and that was just a shell. But I kissed him on his forehead, and I hugged him, and I touched him and I said, ‘Michael, I’ll never leave you. You’ll never leave me.’
When you want to move somebody, you have to say to yourself: ‘I’m in the emotional transportation business. I gotta move them, emotionally.’
You know, when you really connect with the instrument and everything just comes out on an emotional level very naturally through your playing. That’s, you know, a great night. And I think the reason I love touring so much is you’re chasing that high around all the time, trying to have another good night.
I don’t know why, it’s the same reason why you like some music and you don’t like others. There’s something about it that you like. Ultimately I don’t find it’s in my best interests to try and analyze it, since it’s fundamentally emotional.
I was conveniently bisexual for a long time, and then I went, ‘Come on, who am I kidding?’ And I have to say, it was the single biggest step I took toward emotional well-being, to stop feeling like I had to hide who I am.
I think – I think I’ve always been kind of – I used to think of myself as a piece of rubber when I was a kid because I was kind of very shy and very – very emotional about things, but I kind of would bounce back.

I felt all the things that other teenagers felt. I was insecure in lots of ways, over-confident in others. I was very emotional. Excitable.

But I also wanted to give them an intelligent emotional journey, without having to suspend reality – to be able to look at those characters and see reasons for the relationships and why what happens happens.

It’s a big criticism of Greenaway films that they are far too interested in formalism and not enough interested in notions of emotional content. It’s a criticism I can fully understand from a public that has been brought up by Hollywood movies that demand intense emotional rapport.
There was a time not long ago when stories about Internet crimes were a tough sell for TV newsmagazines. Executive producers were wary because images of people typing on keyboards and video of computer monitors did not make especially compelling TV, even when combined with emotional interviews with victims.
Look, if you ask a child, ‘Would you rather have a fulfilled mother or a stay-at-home Sylvia Plath,’ they’ll pick Sylvia Plath every time. But I think it’s really important that children don’t feel their parents’ emotional lives depend on their success.
I get to actually experience what it would be like to be a psycho, which is not a fun one, or to be a cowboy, or to be a weird character of some sort. For me, it suits me. It suits my personality. I’m an emotional kind of person anyway.
I would describe myself as emotional and highly strung. If something upsets me, it really upsets me. If something makes me angry, I get really angry. But it’s all very upfront. I can’t hide it. I’m also loyal and I hope I’m fun.
When you write fiction, you can sort of invent more but also pack it with emotions that are very pertinent to you. Whereas with nonfiction, you have to be as factual as possible but also hopefully – also bring… emotional relevance to the piece.
Certainly I was a very religious child, a deeply weird and very emotional child, an only child with lots of imaginary friends and a very active imagination. I lovedSunday school and Bible camp and all that. I had my own white Bible with Jesus’ words printed in red in the text; I even spoke at youth revivals.
Our ideas about love and attractiveness are so primal, our need for belonging so intense, that most of us are loath to abandon our favorite beliefs on these issues. If you’ve ever let yourself feel lovable and lovely, only to be deeply hurt, you may see accepting your own body as a setup for severe emotional wounding.
I can’t speak for readers in general, but personally I like to read stories behind which there is some truth, something real and above all, something emotional. I don’t like to read essays on literature; I don’t like to read critical or rational or impersonal or cold disquisitions on subjects.
Houdini connected to people on an emotional level so that when he would escape that straight jacket it wasn’t about the straight jacket. It was about people looking at it and escapingpoverty. When you have that it’s the truest form of magic.
‘Perfect Sense’ is a film about love and catastrophe, which I hope is a powerfully romantic and emotional take on the apocalyptic sub-genre. Its aim is to be a minimalist concept movie – where seismic events occur in simple ways that ask the audience to use their imagination.
If you really do want to be an actor who can satisfy himself and his audience, you need to be vulnerable. You must reach the emotional and intellectual level of ability where you can go out starknaked, emotionally, in front of an audience.
Because football is an emotional game, it’s full of feeling, and that’s why we try to train with a smile on our face. At the same time, we work very hard, but it’s a fine line, and you’ve got to try and get that balance right if you can.
My dad is the first to say that Mum deals with the mortgagepayments, the bills, the rota, things like that, while my dad is the emotional one who keeps the home together. He’s the nurturer, but together, they work perfectly.
I’m quite British in the sense of not expressing my emotions much. I save it for my songs. If you ask about a death in the family, or a lover, I will not be emotional. I’d probably answer with a smile. Because that’s what we British blokes do.
Secular writers can tell a story about the physical, the emotional, and the intellectual parts of a character. But no matter how well they tell the story, they miss a facet that is innately part of all of us – the spiritual.
I always felt and still feel that fairytales have an emotional truth that is so deep that there are few things that really rival them.
A lot of problems stem from a desire to avoid discomfort. For example, people who fear failure often avoid new challenges in an effort to keep anxiety at bay. Avoiding emotional discomfort, however, is usually a short-term solution that leads to long-term problems.
I don’t really understand why everybody doesn’t want to direct. It’s an absolutely fascinating combination of skills required and puzzles set on every possible level, emotional and practical and technical. It calls upon such a wide variety of skills. I find it completely absorbing.
There’s a difference between knowing what to do when you’re rehearsing it, and being able to do it once you’re adrenalized and emotional. That’s when the injuries occur. Actors all want to try to pretend that they’re experts at everything, but we’re not.
Anger clearly has its proper place at work, which is neither whollyabsent nor ever present. The manager who is an emotional blank is just as hard to work for as the volcanic boss, and both can do great harm by setting an unhelpful example for what kind of emotional expression is expected and accepted.
Well, Jeff Buckley for me is one of the greatestsingers I’ve ever heard. And the reason why is he has an amazing range, amazing emotional power in his voice. And the music he put around it also just had this passion and this soul to it and this spirit to it that very few artists have, and he passed at a very young age.
The ballet makes us look at those bodies, it makes us listen to that music, it makes us wonder at the geometry, of the way they come together. The way that extraordinary space is controlled and given such emotional force.
It’s quite similar to guitar solos, only with programming you have to use your brain. The most important thing is that it should have some emotional effect on me, rather than just, ‘Oh, that’s really clever.’
Richard D. James
There’s usually a rhythm and a melody in my head, and that creates an emotional state.
I need some kind of emotional stake in it to write my lyrics, assuming that place. It might just be an emotion I understand but am not currently experiencing necessarily.

I loved getting to do Promised Land with him. I mean, he’s really there for you. We did one very emotional scene in the church. He’s just a wonderful acting partner. You feel very safe with him.
I’m very sensitive. Because my mum was my primary emotional caregiver growing up, I found myself being pinned into dresses, darting her dresses, choosing her high heels for the evening or what to wear. I’m very much a mommy‘s boy.
I sort of set myself really high standards which is good and bad. If I know that I’ve done all I can to prepare, that’s when I race the best and in ’09 I was going through a lot of emotional ups and downs and I was never as fit as I would have liked to have been. So I never felt comfortable.
I don’t react to a tragic happening any more. I took so many bad things as a kid and some people think I don’t care about anything. It’s just too hard for me to get emotional. I can’t cry no more.
I damaged all the complicated bits of the brain to do with processing and emotional control. I was prey to every single emotion that swept over me and I couldn’t deal with it. I had to re-learn things from scratch.
I think it’s because it was an emotional story, and emotions come through much stronger in black and white. Colour is distracting in a way, it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart.
My brands are an extension of me. They’re close to me. It’s not like running GM, where there’s no emotional attachment.
I noticed that no matter where I went in the country, there was this group of questions that got asked. I would track them and keep them in categories. Like body image, school, family, friendship, you name it, the emotional life of a teenage girl.
I didn’t expect to feel pathos for the villains in our show. I feel quite moved in several of our episodes; I never realized that a show like ‘Motive,’ which aims for a broad appeal, could have that sort of emotional impact.
I’m a big believer in the emotion of design, and the message that’s sent before somebody begins to read, before they get the rest of the information; what is the emotional response they get to the product, to the story, to the painting – whatever it is.
For my wrap present, Colin Farrell gave me a first edition book. I got so involved with this character and I was so sad when the movie was over that when I got home and I tried to read the book I got really emotional and I started crying.
It’s not that I am not emotional, but I am extremely secure and curb it, as I am afraid to let go and be broken. So, I have cultivated myself to be detached in life, specially where movies are concerned.
We expert teachers know that motivation and emotional impact are what matter.
When you’re playing football, and your enemies are there, you don’t have a lot of time to think to yourself. You’ve got stuff to handle. You’ve got places to be, meetings to go to, bigger fish to fry. You really don’t attack the emotional side of your life.
An emotional performance is usually more instinctive to an actor.
I think it’s a little simplistic to explain a work through the psychology of its author. In other words, that Haneke has emotional problems, so I don’t have to take his films seriously. By using this argument, the viewer retreats from the challenges of the film.
You can be chased home or hit or called names or spit on, and it’s over. You have the memory of it, but it’s very different from the emotional and psychological experience of feeling invisible, of not learning the confidence to stand up in class and speak.
In all my movies, there’s always a kind of heartfelt element, to be able to do a drama and to be able to spend more time in the emotional stuff with no pressure to get back to the funny that’s very liberating for me.
It is a process of discovery. It’s being quiet enough and undisturbed enough for a period of time so that the songs can begin to sort of peek out, and you begin to have emotional experiences in a musical way.
Health is relative. There is no such thing as an absolute state of health or sickness. Everyone’s physical, mental, and emotional condition is a combination of both.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
Everything has a purpose or premise. Every second of our life has its own premise, whether or not we are conscious of it at the time. That premise may be as simple as breathing or as complex as a vital emotional decision, but it is always there.
I don’t really like being emotional. Public displays of emotion, I don’t really do that sort of stuff. I don’t know why. I would like to be the type that doesn’t worry about that.
We are biologicalcreatures. We are born, we live, we die. There is no transcendent purpose to existence. At best we are creatures of reason, and by using reason we can cure ourselves of emotional excess. Purged of both hope and fear, we find courage in the face of helplessness, insignificance and uncertainty.
During the financial crisis, I worked with hundreds of executives who struggled as a result of their thoughts about job security. When their beliefs changed, so did their emotional experience – and they were then able to focus on the task at hand more effectively.
It was just like Howlin’ Wolf. Once you arrive at the point that you understand it, the emotional factor is darker than some of the saddestblues stuff.
The amygdala is like a point guard in the emotional part of your middle brain. When it is overwhelmed, it hijacks you away from being able to access your upper rational brain and think and assess what to do. It essentially disables your ability to think.
The scientific method is about trying to remove our own bias and subjectivity, and be as objective as possible. But then you can put it back into context and you’re allowed to be emotional and human about the way you engage with it.
In the old days, variety turns like me learned how to cope with failure – we all had nights when we ‘died’ on stage – but today‘s youngsters simply don’t have that experience. For them, it really is instant make or break time – hence, all the tears and, hence, all the potential emotional damage.
The stories that I like to tell and the movies I like are always grounded in the emotional arc of the characters.
The relationships that people have – that are sexual, psychological, emotional – these relationships are not open to supervision by parents, schools, churches, or government. Nobody has any right to intervene at all in any kind of relationship like that.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair
I realisedone day that men are emotional cripples. We can’t express ourselves emotionally, we can only do it with anger and humour. Emotional stability and expression comes from women.
The paradox of modernism is, writers make the decision to work with the continuous present, and to work with… stream of consciousness, as it’s called, for emotional reasons, and the main emotional reason is verisimilitude. I mean, this is what surprises people: Life is not in the simple past.
At the end of the day, sleep is a barometer of your emotional health. And so if you’re not in the right place where you need to be, then you’re going to have voiceskeeping you up at night because you have to work through those issues.
I listen to music two ways: As a person, you have an instinctive, personal, emotional response. But as a music supervisor, you have a secondary response, which is, ‘Will this sit well under dialogue?’ ‘Can people die to this?’ ‘Can people kiss to this?’
The best part of one’s life is the working part, the creative part. Believe me, I love to succeed… However, the real spiritual and emotional excitement is in the doing.
I have always wanted my children’s dads to be involved in their lives. Not just the day-to-day aspect, but the emotional shifts that they go through, when little things pop up – they need to be included, absolutely, and for the children to feel that they are.
I think that there are cancers of the body, but I think they are what I would call cancer of the emotional system, too. These are the kind of diseases or illnesses or sicknesses of the emotional system that are as incurable as cancer.
I’m an emotional person. I may not seem that way, but I’m an emotional person.
A lot of actors, and artists in general, never feel secure in love. They always feel everything’s going to be taken away from them, professionally and personally; they’re extremely emotional and volatile.
I don’t think of the future too much. I am not very practical, I am a very emotional woman. My heart rules my life, not the mind. I don’t crave anything apart from buying a really good car. I am not greedy for anything in life.
The problem is that too many adults think their kids’ lives are simple, or they try to make their lives simple, when their emotional lives are just as complicated as ours. They might have a few less tools to deal with it because they’re young, but the emotions are all the same, and the subject matter is all the same.
Playing a robot is possibly the most difficult role you can have as an actor, because you have to take all your innate emotional responses and completely suppress them. Even the way you walk is affected.
If I’m trying to get into character and it’s an emotional scene, I’ll listen to depressing or really sad music.
It feels right. But it’s emotional. Saying goodbye to anything you’ve done that long is hard.
In a world where ironyreigns, where you have to separate, protect and laugh at anything that is honest or has an emotional charge, I bet for catharsis. I like to invest emotionally in things. And catharsis, when it touches the emotional vein, can open the doors of even those who protect themselves.
Fragrance is important to me because of its emotional dimension. I feel like fragrances are able to transport, stir emotion, and bring up memories. You can wear makeup, you can dress yourself up, but fragrance gives a powerful aspect to how you can present yourself that you can’t necessarily get any other way.
It’s all about creating a back story for the character and developing emotional responses that are true to life in relation to the character. It isn’t necessary to live a tragic life to create from that place.
You know, with the film industry crews, there’s an odd mix between a very technical and a very artistic approach to the work, and sometimes as a woman you have to be a little bit careful about how things come out because people don’t really want to listen if it’s in a certain emotional tone or too strong.
When you’re used to looking through a stills lens and you have to capture an emotional moment, and that picture is not moving and yet it has to have impact, I think that’s the first influence on my style.
I guess I worry about weird existential things, like how do we spend our final act. This is a very emotional question. I can’t answer it without crying. I think, You’re 56 years old, what did you do? You raised two good kids. What am I going to do now that is as meaningful as that? I don’t know the answer yet.
