There is no more hollow feeling than to stand with your honor shattered at your feet while soaring public reputation wraps you in rewards. That’s soul-destroying. The other way around is merely very, very irritating.

Mia Maz glanced aside in concern at his muffled snort. "Are you all right?" "Yes. Sorry," he whispered. "I’m just having an attack of limericks." Her eyes widened, and she bit her lip; only her deepening dimple betrayed her. "Shhh," she said, with feeling.

The culture of New York is just impossible to replicate. Its such an incredible feeling to be walking on the streets of New York. You can literally find everything you need in a five block radius oftentimes.

Sensitivity is equated with weakness. Feelings are for women. It’s OK to express happiness or anger, but it’s not OK to feel fear or sadness. This gets exaggerated in prison.

Between the disillusionment that people feel about politics-as-usual, assaults on the right to vote, and the constant feelings of pressure that Americans suffer in our overworked, overstressed economy, too many people have checked out of the political process.

When you’re on stage, the audience becomes your other half. It’s the ultimate high you can reach as a musician – an incredible feeling. And no matter where I am it’s still the same; there’s a reason we call music the universal language.

When I found somebody who I fell in love with, it made me feel different than I felt the rest of the day. It was electrifying. That’s what inspired the ‘Off to the Races’ melodies. That’s one of the times when you’re feeling electrified by someone else and they make you happy to be alive.

When I was younger I felt lonely… In terms of my thought processes. I had the constant feeling that I thought differently to everyone around me. So, I suppose I felt lonely for a home. I didn’t know where I wanted to be, but I knew I wasn’t there yet.

I’m a civilized person who obeys the law and is pretty easy to get along with, but I’m more complicated than that. I use my work as a way to get all that other stuff out and experiment with feelings and ideas, and the forbidden. That’s just part of my process, I think, to identify something forbidden.

For anyone with the traits – of feeling himself victimized, of seeking to be the strongman who resolves everything, yet sees truth only through his own self and negates all other truth outside of it – is bound to become more malignant when he has power.

Think of it as a vicious circle. The power intensifies these tendencies and the tendencies become more dangerous because of the power.

I loved the atmosphere of the dance studios – the wooden floors, the big mirrors, everyone dressed in pink or black tights, the musicians accompanying us – and the feeling of ritual the classes had.

So what is the role that credit default swaps can play in an economy? Well my feeling is that if these things actually will now be traded on either exchanges or some kind of central clearing, they are going to be a very good measure of the credit worthiness of different companies.

I’m really inspired by the interplay of visual art and music, a total artistic environment where there’s sound and visuals. When I think about that I get stimulated and excited. It’s a feeling that you can’t label with words.

We are at a moment that some of the Silicon Valley companies are feeling the pressure. These days the founder of Twitter apologized that his company promoted some of the things that elected Donald Trump. You don’t see that much of these apologizing from Google. From Mark Zuckerberg you are hearing a little bit more of it, but he is a little more "Oh, well, this is what happens because the internet scaled up and everybody has fake news; oh, we are gonna build a better technology".
