I think when you’re a kid coming out of college, you’re just kinda going with the flow.

Politics, nature, and what is happening all over the world is important to who we are and where we live.

The arts are an even better barometer of what is happening in our world than the stock market or the debates in congress.
But I think what Liam said just kind of hit it spot on, that the people in the capital are brainwashed and such a disconnect with what’s actually happening.

I was really aware, even while it was happening, that the discovery of arts education in my life sort of saved my life.
If the Frieze Art Fair catches on, I imagine at least two great things happening. First, we will once again have a huge art fair in town that isn’t too annoying to go to.

I just feel like, with rappers, there’s so much complacency. It’s like, ‘Oh, I’m a rapper. I’m successful. I make money. That’s all that matters.’ But there’s a lot of stuff going on in the world. Whether or not you’re aware of it, it’s happening.
Well, I am a Republican, and I would run as a Republican. And I have a lot of confidence in the Republican Party. I don’t have a lot of confidence in the president. I think what’s happening to this country is unbelievably bad. We’re no longer a respected country.

Can you design a Rorschach test that’s going to make everyone feel something every time – and that looks like a Rorschach test? It’s easy to show a picture of a kitten or a car accident. The question is, how abstract can you get and still get the audience to feel something when they don’t know what’s happening to them?
Don’t worry too much if you don’t pass exams, so long as you feel you have understood the subject. It’s amazing what you can get by the ability to reason things out by conventional methods, getting down to the basics of what is happening.
The interesting thing about ‘The Handmaid‘s Tale’ is that everything that happens in it has happened or is happening somewhere in the world.

All of these really strong females making names for themselves in what were traditionally male-dominated spaces.

It’s cool to be a part of that.
I have so many moments. I am extremely passionate about life and at the same time, I’m always depressed, so everything’s always happening at the same time for me. It’s the best day and the worst day too.

So, in Europe, they’re cutting people’s retirement and health benefits. And that’s what we want to avoid from happening. They’re raising taxes, entering a recession. That’s the kind of economic program that President Obama has put in place.

Time is what prevents everything from happening at once.

Try and understand what part you have to play in the world in which you live. There’s more to life than you know and it’s all happening out there. Discover what part you can play and then go for it.

I was sleeping in a water bed for a couple of years, recommended by my doctor. I was never comfortable in that water bed. In the middle of the night you would hear something happening – water and bubbles. I would always think there was some intelligent life in the water bed.
Some countries that I go to are still trying to deny that it’s happening. In India, 2.1 million people are living with HIV AIDS. India manufactures most of the drugs that are used to cure HIV around the world, which is an amazing, amazing fact that most people don’t know.
I was in the middle of filming Season 3 of ‘Grace and Frankie.’ Then the writing process for ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000′ was happening at the exact same time. And then the pre-production for ‘Fatherless’ was happening at the exact same time as well.

My challenge was even greater as a journalist, because this was happening in my own backyard.
When you get into your 40s, the roles do tend to drop off, and I’ve seen it happening to friends of mine. Hopefully it is improving, and there are female TV executives now who are championing women of all ages in leading roles. But I’m not counting on it.
Our world is so glutted with useless information, images, useless images, sounds, all this sort of thing.

The Vision Festival was packed every night, always has been for the four years it’s been happening.

Global warming is real. It is happening today. It is being charted by our satellites. It is being charted by our scientists. It is being charted by those of us in this body, and I think the real key is if we are ready to admit that fact and take the action to make the necessary conversion.
In the ’30s, the Keynesian stuff worked at least in the sense that you could print money without inflation because there was all this productivity growth happening. That’s not going to work today.

Whereas with us – what you hear is what’s happening right then and there on the stage – so we don’t need no stinking technology.

For me, pop culture is very fluid: it’s music, it’s movies, it’s books, it’s art, it’s tech, it’s so many things – and as marketing and brand advocates, we should be able to to take products and services and match them to what’s happening in pop culture.
But we had a pretty diversified portfolio of businesses around the world and things tended to offset each other. But one or two years ago, we had a lot of things happening at the same time.

People have said to me ‘I hope you won’t let happen in Washington what is happening in Kansas.’
We are clear that all lives matter, but we live in a world where that’s not actually happening in practice. So if we want to get to the place where all lives matter, then we have to make sure that black lives matter, too.
I loved couriers. You had this transfer of physical information happening throughout the city and the world. Someone picking up the package, putting it in a bag, going somewhere, taking it out of the bag, giving it to someone else. I thought that was so cool. I wanted to map it, to see that flow on a big screen.
Lyrics have become so dumbed down nowadays. People don’t want to have to think about lyrics anymore, they just want to be told something. Until these great things started happening with us, I’d really given up on reaching people like that.

A great thing is happening on cable TV. You see characters change in stories over years, like in Tolstoy. That’s a whole, thrilling new form that I really enjoy. They are Tolstoy-an in their endless character development and narrative changes… a show like ‘Breaking Bad‘ is astonishing.
Maybe by making people feel uncomfortable, I tap into that uncanny quality that is a part of the scariest, weirdest things that you remember happening to you when you were a kid.
Johannesburg is weird, because half of it is like Los Angeles. It feels like just wealthy parts of L.A. But half of it is severe slummy, something like Rio De Janiero or something. So it’s kind of weird, because it’s both happening at the same time.

I am upset and completely disappointed in the government, the millionaires and billionaires in the U.S. See what’s happening to the country? Look at all the health problems, the economy, the recession and crime.
I think Amsterdam is to Holland what New York is to America in a sense. It’s a metropolis, so it’s representative of Holland, but only a part of it – you know, it’s more extreme, there’s more happening, it’s more liberal and more daring than the countryside in Holland is.
The whole Twitter phenomenon is really indicative of what’s happening in this country. And I say this in condemnation of myself as much as anyone else – we are growing into a nation that has no time, desire or capacity for truth. All we can handle is 140 characters of knowledge.
When you are writing a book, it feels as if you are simply concentrating on the world of the book and that whatever is happening in your personal life is outside the room, as it were. But maybe that’s just the way you have to talk to yourself to make it possible.

Everyone is going to be skeptical if they don’t know what is happening.
The Internet is a cauldron of anger every day, every year, election year or not, with unemployment at 10 percent or at two percent. It isn’t exactly a good index of what’s happening.
Things happen every day. You can’t spend your whole life trying to guard against something happening. If you do that, in my opinion, you’ve wasted your life.
One of my big goals as a human being is to continue to write what’s really happening to me, even if it’s a tough pill to swallow for people around me… I do fear that if I ever were to have someone in my life who mattered, I would second-guess every one of my lyrics.
You know, at some point there has to be parity. There has to be parity between what is happening in the real world, and what is happening in the public sector world.

I do think that something of the effect I have on people is to put everything on an edge where they’re both infatuated with a kind of charmingness happening in the person or in the writing, and also flatly terrified by a revelation or acceptance of revelation that’s almost happening, never quite totally happening.
There’s not a lot happening on a Sunday night in Indian Wells.
I’m always doing something that ain’t happening, and I’m always happening when there ain’t nothing going on.
And that’s really what’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government.
For me, mental toughness is the ability to stay focussed in the present irrespective of what is happening at the match.

When I first got sick, they told me I had a year to live, and I was writing my memoir really fast. There were really weird things happening with my nervous system and my heart and stuff, and it didn’t look like I was gonna make it, so I was writing really fast, and then I couldn’t write anymore.
I like to write songs about what’s happening, what I see around me and what I hear.
I don’t think your personal life has anything to do with your professional life. They are separate things. Whatever is happening at home shouldn’t be carried to work. Everyone has his/her own journey. Some revel in the fact that they derive that from personal contentment, and others draw it from extreme sorrow.
Among immigrants today, it is increasingly fashionable to reject American exceptionalism in favor of multiculturalism. To pretend that this isn’t happening isn’t optimism; it’s sheer fantasy.
I can’t believe what’s happening visually, in front of my eyes.

Now it’s like, I’ll go to Starbucks, or I’ll go to the mall or anywhere, and lots of people will recognize me, and I’m like, ‘Oh, wow, this is actually a thing now; this is happening.’ It can get a little bit crazy at times, but I love meeting people, and people shouldn’t feel scared to come up to me and say ‘Hi.’
Everyone seems to think they know what acting techniques are. Techniques just help you get to a certain place, but if the thing is happening just by itself, you don’t need those techniques.
I developed a mechanism so that whatever mistakes I made, I would bounce straight back. Whatever was happening off the pitch, I could put it to one side and maintain my form. Call it mental resilience or a strong mind, but that is what we mean when we talk about experience in a football team.

We’d like to have immediate answers to all of our questions. I think medicine in particular. I found it frustrating as a physician sometimes to not be able to tell someone exactly why something was happening to them. There are still so many mysteries in medicine.
In many cases your imagination is much more effective than what can be shown. It primes you to know something is about to happen – the anticipation and anxiety is worse than what ends up happening.
We set out to capture what was happening, and then we cut that into the series.
Since 2001, people have been scared. There’s been some really scary stuff that’s been happening – 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, Katrina, anthrax letters, D.C. sniper, global warming, global financial meltdown, bird flu, swine flu, SARS. I think people really feel like the system’s breaking down.

It’s like the mod thing is happening again.
The other day, I was taking part in an audience Q&A when I was roundly scolded by a woman for ‘allowing the BBC to ruin the English language.’ Naturally I felt terrible, as I had no idea either that it was happening or that I was responsible.

A great thing happening now in art is that artists are using the figure, the body, clothing, life.
I often find myself listening to a record because a lot of people or magazines have told me it’s good and I’m supposed to like it, and I try to stay in touch with what’s happening and I’m also a fan of music. I find myself trying to like something that I really don’t think is that great.
I realized it was happening, but most people didn’t realize it was happening. I mean, because as a self-employed person, when there is a recession or a cutback in the economy, we feel it first. Because many self-employed people provide services that are nonessential.

When I hear about something allegedly happening in the world I always ask: ‘Who is doing it?’ Trends break out because they’re based on real demographics, like there being fewer nuclear families or more people living alone. If 10 people in Shoreditch are doing it, it’s a 10-minute fad.

Picking my topics is sort of a process of elimination for me. Most things don’t work for me. I like to cover science and unexpected things happening in labs.

I’m finding myself really angry over spending and the deficit. I’m finding myself really angry over what’s happening in the Middle East, the decision to stay in Afghanistan indefinitely. I’m angry about cap and trade. And I’ve been on record for a long time on the failed war on drugs.

Now I understand what was happening. I don’t particularly gain water; I don’t have water retention.
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’m an actor, so sometimes there are moments where I think about everything that’s happening and I want to cry. I’m doing what I love and I will be doing it for a very, very long time – and it’s amazing. A lot of people don’t get to do that.
Life is the movie you see through your own eyes. It makes little difference what’s happening out there. It’s how you take it that counts.

Plays, especially great plays, yield their secrets over a long period of time. You can’t read it three times and say, ‘OK, I got it. I know what’s happening.’
It’s hard to say goodbye to the streets. It’s all how you do it. You can pass by and say, ‘What’s happening?’ and keep it moving, but it’s a certain element that’ll never be able to roll with you once you get to this level, because that’s the separation of it all.
I don’t use the big video screens that a lot of other artists use because personally, I think it’s kind of a crutch. I think sometimes it’s like watching television as opposed to really getting involved with what is happening onstage and the people in your section.

In the old days, the media is who held people accountable when they lied in politics. That isn’t happening anymore.
Movie acting is primarily listening. If you’re really engaged, that’s all a movie audience wants to see is you processing what’s happening in your world.

Coming into the business, you’d pass through these little agencies until you got to understand what was happening in the business, unless you were really able to have a style strong enough to go directly to the publishers.

One way of paying tribute to my parents was ‘bearing witness’ as the Quakers do – writing down everything that was happening instead of turning my back on it and pretending that it was all great.

The capitalist system is about taking from the Earth and from the other great commodity, labour.

It’s going to make the situation worse.
