Some indeed have tears naturally, when the higher motion of the soul makes itself felt in the lower, or because God our Lord, seeing that it would be good for them, allows them to melt into tears. But this does not mean that they have greater charity or that they are more effective than others who enjoy no tears.
I don’t think I suffered with depression, I don’t think I’m a depressed type of person – I just think I suffered a depression to do with snooker, and I just couldn’t handle it.

I’ve never felt influenced by Ernest Hemingway though I suppose there is something inevitable there.

Seven years ago, when I started free soloing long, hard routes in Yosemite – climbing without a rope, gear or a partner – I did it because it seemed like the purest, most elegant way to scale big walls. Climbing, especially soloing, felt like a grand adventure, but I never dreamed it could be a profession.

It felt natural. That is what I remember most about becoming a father halfway through my 20s. As if Mother Nature was giving me the big thumbs up.
I love my husband very much. I knew it was real true love because I felt like I could be myself around that person. Your true, true innermost authentic self, the stuff you don’t let anyone else see, if you can be that way with that person, I think that that’s real love.
A president either is constantly on top of events or, if he hesitates, events will soon be on top of him. I never felt that I could let up for a moment.
I was lucky enough to grow up in an era when radio was less formatted. It was really special. You could hear a jazz song then a pop song then a show tune then some jazz.

Little Red Riding Hood was my first love. I felt that if I could have married Little Red Riding Hood, I should have known perfect bliss.

I’ve never felt more comfortable in my skin, I’ve never enjoyed life as much and I feel so lucky.

I came up from growing up with a lot of Catholic guilt, a lot of punk rock, hipster guilt in the later years where I think people have thrown a lot of things on me. Where I always felt like I’m not supposed to tell the horn section what to play or I don’t want to come off egotistical.
I always felt like if you get to a point where you’ve got enough money to invest in something real, you gotta invest in anything that’s related to a natural resource because that’s gonna be here forever – so you might as well invest in something that’s gonna be here, rather than invest in something that’s gonna wear out.
I’ve always felt that if something is polarizing, that’s usually the stuff I like the most. If something is taking a chance and is willing to be weird, that’s my favorite thing. I know there’s somebody out there who hates it.

I felt ‘Gone with the Wind’ would last five years, and it’s lasted over 70 and into a new millennium. There is a special place in my heart for that film and Melanie. She was a remarkable character – a loving person – and because of that, she was a happy person. And Scarlett, of course, was not.

I’ve always felt very English.
I always felt rock and roll was very, very wholesome music.

True guilt is guilt at the obligation one owes to oneself to be oneself. False guilt is guilt felt at not being what other people feel one ought to be or assume that one is.
That experience with ‘Rent’ went by so fast. I was younger. I didn’t even really know what opening night was.

I’ve had many conversations with the Clinton family. We’re friends. It’s hard, very tough. I think on Election Day, everybody felt pretty good. I think the Trump campaign thought they were gonna lose.

I’ve known Emma Watson since she was 9, we’ve watched each other grow up, formed this sort of brother/sister bond, and suddenly I’m leaning in to kiss her.

There was interest from a lot of clubs, not just Manchester United, but as soon as I knew Liverpool were interested, I just felt it was the right club with the right coach. It was right for me to come here.
I liked how ‘Star Wars‘ felt both old and new. I even built a model of R2-D2, taking about two months mixing two kits to make one that looked just like the real thing. I’m the kind of person who gets really into it when I do something like that.
When I’m in the studio, I’m looking for creativity I haven’t matched yet, a feeling I haven’t felt. It’s a high.

I feel good being a black woman; I’ve always felt good.
From very early on in my childhood – four, five years old – I felt alien to the human race. I felt very comfortable with thinking I was from another planet, because I felt disconnected – I was very tall and skinny, and I didn’t look like anybody else, I didn’t even look like any member of my family.
In my professional life, when I started I felt it was very transitory. You meet people, you have to make this very intense connection and then you might not see them for two years. It was kind of odd and when I started out I didn’t like it.
I felt more comfortable playing other people than being myself, when I was a kid. And then, the tables turned. Through my performances, I’ve become more comfortable with who I am, and then I just bring more of myself into the people that I play.
Songs are a way to express what I have felt. A way to understand what happened to me or to other people.
Bangkok is one of those places where it’s so rich and full of tradition, but they’re so open to different people – different gender expressions and gender identities. As a gay man, I never once felt uncomfortable there. As a black man, I never once felt uncomfortable.
During Vietnam, I was in college, enjoying my student deferment. The government wisely felt that, in my case, military service was less important than completing my studies to prepare me for my chosen career: comedian.
It felt as if things were literally slipping through my fingers. Things were just streaming away from me. I lost my sense of humor. I’m still looking for that.
There is no question that at times in my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about my country, that I worked far too hard and that things happened in my life that were not appropriate.
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’ve often felt depressed; everyone feels depressed.

My shoe has been going through evolution, and we having great feedback from the 1 to the 2 and the 2.5’s, so I think just consistency. The biggest thing I wanted to accomplish was a shoe that basketball players loved and felt like they have an advantage out of.
Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me.
I love doing improv. I love comedy. I have always felt this way, even when I was really young.

The crippling health and economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis have been felt across Central Virginia. But in our communities of color, COVID-19’s spread has been particularly destructive.
When it’s said and done, the one thing I want to leave on this earth is hope. I have felt hopelessness, and it’s a terrible feeling. Hopelessness will destroy you. I want to bring hope to other people.
We trace out all the veins of the earth, and yet, living upon it, undermined as it is beneath our feet, are astonished that it should occasionally cleave asunder or tremble: as though, forsooth, these signs could be any other than expressions of the indignation felt by our sacred parent!
As far as success, I have always felt that success is determined by competitiveness.
EC3 began as a spoiled brat, and I felt it was important for the fans to be able to relate to the character – not as themselves but as someone they may have encountered in their lives and really just want to sock square in the face.
I have never felt salvation in nature. I love cities above all.
When I read what ‘GLOW’ was about, it just felt like something where I could make as many faces as I wanted, and it would totally make sense!
At school, I felt out of place. I was bullied. I would think, ‘These kids don’t like me, they don’t accept me,’ but I felt like in the entertainment industry, I would fit in.
I always felt like I needed to act. Not that I wanted to act, but I needed to. And I still feel that same way. There’s an expression that I get to have in acting that I can’t consciously express in my life. It has always defined me and it always will.
I was ready to quit music. It felt to me like music equalled death.
They wanted to audition people for the Middle East correspondent on ‘The Daily Show.’ They wanted to hire somebody ethnic for that slot. Helms had left, Cordry had left, and they felt that they needed an ethnic face. So, I went in and auditioned, and I got the job.
I’ve always felt like I can dance.

I’ve never felt fallow in the sense that there’s been no work.

I lived in a dictatorship in Brazil, and I was arrested three times. I felt in my flesh what it is to live under such a regime and experience deprivation of freedom.
The truth is that since childhood I had cultivated an existential independence. It came from perceiving the adults around me as unreliable, and without it I felt I wouldn’t have survived. I cared deeply for everyone in my family, but in the end I depended on myself.
I have always said and felt that true enjoyment can not be described.
I acquired quite a lot of technical skill and got quite a long way with my painting, but I never felt I was doing what New Zealand was about with my paint.
Since the departure of good old-fashioned entertainers the re-emergence of somebody who wants to be an entertainer has unfortunately become a synonym for camp. I don’t think I’m camper than any other person who felt at home on stage, and felt more at home on stage than he did offstage.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.
I felt perhaps ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo‘ was a little premature. It was a huge hit around the world – it was still running in the theatres – and the Americans at that time were already shooting the remake, and I was like, ‘Whoa! Give it a break of five or six years and get a little inspired, and then do it.’
We played some gigs in Switzerland a couple of weeks ago and it was the first time I really felt the group was really a band in the sense of something I could write for.
I felt like an outsider in middle school. Horrible.
The framers of the Constitution were so clear in the federalist papers and elsewhere that they felt an independent judiciary was critical to the success of the nation.

Whenever they sang a certain song in church, I used to sing it the loudest: ‘Lead me, guide me, along the way!’ One day, as I was singing this song, I felt as if the Lord was saying to me, ‘Lead you along what way?’ I realized then that if you don’t have a plan, God doesn’t have anything specific to direct you in.
I’d read about Los Angeles and this fact stuck in my mind: that the city gained 1,000 new people every day. In 1956! A thousand people every day! I felt: ‘I want to be part of that.’
I honestly felt no envy or resentment, only astonishment at how much of a world there was out there and how much of it others already knew. The agenda for self-cultivation that had been set for my classmates by their teachers and parents was something I’d have to develop for myself.
We did ‘The Conversation’ on the Zeus network because we already are on TV and we felt like us being our own therapists could work. We tried it. We just gave it a shot since we already on blast and everybody creating their own stories about what they see. Just tried to give it a shot. Did it help? I don’t know.
As soon as I put on gloves, I knew. I felt heart and determination. It’s in you, not on you. I just loved to fight and I knew that it was going to take me where I needed to go. I never had any doubt.
I have never felt the constraints of social acceptability.
I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.
When I was right out of college, I felt competitive with some of the guys in my class over career stuff. It’s funny now to think about it – that a friend getting a job or something had anything to do with me… I think that my relationship with my wife has played a pivotal role in the chilling out of Aaron.
In the 1950s and early 1960s, psychoanalysis swept through the intellectual community, and it was the dominant mode of thinking about the mind. People felt that this was a completely new set of insights into human motivation, and that its therapeutic potential was significant.
The truth was I felt ugly growing up. I only really started feeling comfortable in myself when I was 40.
I never pictured myself as just a rapper; I always wanted to act and do whatever else I could do. I always felt like I could do a lot of different things.
I think humans have always felt watched back by whatever is out there flickering in the distance. What excites me is what the imagination creates, not simply in explanation of what is there but also to explain or justify the feeling of awe and attachment that the heavens inspire.
Over the years, my work became both my vocation and avocation. Since I enjoyed it so much, I never felt a great need to go outside for relaxation. Nevertheless, I became an avid photographer and traveler. Possibly my love for travel stems from the early years when my family seldom went away on vacation.
Boarding school didn’t feel like my world, I felt like an alien; people there had a lot of money.
Upon graduation, I hit a wall. All of my good friends from UCLA were taking on jobs they were passionate about, and I felt left behind. It took a bit of soul searching, but in the end, I finally had the guts to pursue acting.
As I watched bookstores close, I began to wonder how that felt for the owners. Owning a bookstore was their dream and now they’re struggling and seeing those dreams fall apart.

I loved eating and I did put on weight. I never actually felt fat until I started going for castings, for auditions.

The name ‘The Beach Boys‘ is controlled by Brother Records Inc., which was founded by the original members of the Beach Boys and whose sole shareholders voted over a decade ago to grant me an exclusive license to tour as ‘The Beach Boys.’ With it, I’ve felt a great responsibility to uphold, honor and further our legacy.
When I started, the music I would be drawn to would be heavy metal and new wave like Black Sabbath – things that seemed more shocking – and then, of course, eventually I would find bands and writers who were laying things out very clearly and whose words felt very sharp to the touch and sharp to your feelings.
I think probably one of the important things that happened to me was growing up in Idaho in the mountains, in the woods, and having a very strong presence of the wilderness around me. That never felt like emptiness. It always felt like presence.
While I have felt lonely many times in my life, the oddest feeling of all was after my mother, Lucille, died. My father had already died, but I always had some attachment to our big family while she was alive. It seems strange to say now that I felt so lonely, yet I did.
True inspiration overrides all fears. When you are inspired, you enter a trance state and can accomplish things that you may never have felt capable of doing.
When I stepped into the box, I felt the at-bat belonged to me. Everybody else was there for my convenience. The pitcher was there to throw me a ball to hit. The catcher was there to throw it back to him if he didn’t give me what I wanted the first time. And the umpire was lucky that he was close enough to watch.
In the early days, I really felt the pain of not being able to find information easily. I guess that helped me to develop an urge to write things like a search engine.
I’ve felt like an outsider all my life. It comes from my mother, who always felt like an outsider in my father’s family. She was a powerful woman, and she motivated my father.
I grew up in Texas, eating meat five times a day, and I liked meat. But I began being a vegetarian when I was 19 because I found that I felt better.
You can’t please everyone, but I’ve always felt you cannot ultimately lose if you give everything you try 110%. You’ll always learn something useful, even from a failure, that can be applied to the next challenge or project.
I always thought ‘plus-size’ wasn’t a term that was negative – it wasn’t something that I felt was something that was making me any different or making me feel like I was lesser than – and I found a community through it.
Like everyone else, I’ve had moments when I’ve felt that I’ve been losing my grip.
The first time I was on ‘Johnny Carson,’ I remember being so scared, but the minute he started talking to me, I felt a little more comfortable because I just knew he was going to take care of me. Hopefully, I have learned something from watching him for so many years that I can offer that to a guest.
I grew up between Detroit and Ghana, and I had to make friends in an instant. It sharpened my wit, and also, just for my own sanity‘s sake, I felt like I wanted to entertain myself. So I’m going through all these experiences, and I ask myself, ‘Is this crazy? Is it? Wait, what’s so funny about this?’
Every book is a new journey. I never felt I was an expert on a subject as I embarked on a project.
Do exactly what you would do if you felt most secure.
Just classic immigrant story – I mean, child of immigrant story – did not grow up with cable and so felt constantly like I was being spoken to in a foreign language when I would go to school. And people would be like, did you watch this? Did you watch that? I’d be like, no, but I did watch ‘SNL.’
I’ve never felt particularly comfortable in any defined boundaries, ever.
There’s no regret. You can’t regret. I mean, I’ve felt regret but I’ve also refused to allow regret to sow a seed and live in me because I don’t believe it. You feel it, it’s like guilt, it’s like jealousy, it’s like all those horrible things. You’ve just got to snip them and get them out, because they’re no good.
I felt this during the first few months of my motherhood. You lose who you are – you lose your identity – because when your baby comes, you give, give, give, and no one gives back, and you just wonder, ‘Who am I?’ ‘What am I?’ ‘How do I live life now?’ It’s all for this baby.
One can’t paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.
I’ve put my life back together, but it’s all a growing process and that’s neat, too, because if you stop growing, what good is it musically? So that is what I am looking forward to – growing. In some ways, I felt stagnant in my life and it showed.
My greatest regret is not having gone to Wellesley College. it is something I have felt a little sad about my whole life.
When I was about seven, one or two people encouraged me, and art became an enormous and important refuge. By adolescence, I was absolutely passionate about it and felt those paintings and those painters, whether they lived a few hundred years ago or were still alive, were somehow my companions.
In 1995, I had been chosen to make a short presentation about the state of the TV business at a company retreat in Santa Barbara. At the time, I felt we were not real competitors in network television. The studio wasn’t prolific; we didn’t have much of a brand.
It wasn’t until Duotones that I felt my true voice come out.
I was so focused on winning and coaching; there were times players felt like I was really tough on them and hard on them. Now, I try to be more considerate with how I get my message across.
Losing my father at a tender age was hard, and I felt it more so while growing up when I needed a father to talk to. Especially while pursuing an acting career where I would have loved his guidance and advice, since it was his passion as well.
In 1958, Anne and I returned to Australia, where I got a very attractive research position at the Australian National University in Canberra. But soon I felt very isolated because at that time game theory was virtually unknown in Australia.
When I felt upset and lost, music always had the answer.
I seek out hard things. I tried to imitate other singers. It was a self-discovery for me to move from imitating others to me growing to sing in my own voice. The opera was difficult and it felt like a personal conquest.
My dad is 20 years older than my mom. Growing up, I felt like he knew everything. I felt like, for every question I had, he had an answer.
Singing is something that I’m always happy to do it and going in the studio I never felt any pressure. I just feel like I get to sing, you know. It’s fun.
I never felt any attraction towards violence. I never tried to express myself through violence. Violence is a language.
There was a lot of passion with Klopp, I felt that most in the dressing room before games. He always had a big smile. He hugged every player. I loved his attitude – he was never nervous. He gave us confidence.
I felt ashamed of being different and ashamed of feeling that way.
When I came to Delhi and noticed an insider view, I felt what it was, and I was surprised to see it. It seemed as if dozens of separate governments are running at the same time in one main government. It appeared that everyone has its own fiefdom.
Came from a song that I made from, like, 2012 – there was some phrase like ‘Rap Monster‘, and I just, I thought it was so cool. But as I grow up, and as I came to America, I think it felt like too much. So I just abbreviated it to ‘RM’, and it could symbolize many things. It could have more spectrums to it.
I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do – that was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse.
I’ve never liked the recognition, the questions, the publicity. I have often felt like running away and hiding.
I felt like that growing up – that I didn’t have a voice.
Goethe died in 1832. As you know, Goethe was very active in science. In fact, he did some very good scientific work in plant morphology and mineralogy. But he was quite bitter at the way in which many scientists refused to grant him a hearing because he was a poet and therefore, they felt, he couldn’t be serious.
Chicago is the Great American City, and it was really great to live there during a time of economic expansion and opportunity and growth. I felt like I was living at the center of the world. Unlike New York, no one expects you to be a professional writer.
Even more than getting married or having kids, I found losing a parent is what thrusts you into adulthood. For me it was. That was when the Earth tilted on its axis, and there was a paradigm shift, and I felt like a different person.
Because I have always felt privileged. I have been able to do what I love, I have always been treated well, I have always been paid well so that’s why. I feel that I owe something; that I need to return something. It’s always been a great pleasure but nevertheless I do feel this responsibility.
I felt like I had a really bad case of writer’s block… Music is so therapeutic for me that if I can’t get it out, I start feeling bad about myself – a lot of self-loathing.
I had to create an equivalent for what I felt about what I was looking at – not copy it.
I was talking to Marylanders… What we were hearing, everywhere, was an overwhelming sense of frustration. People felt a huge disconnect between Annapolis and the rest of Maryland.
I don’t mean to be presumptuous that men don’t feel this, I don’t mean this, but I found that when my child was born, my first child, it felt like my heart broke.
I just felt like there was a world of cartoon voices that had to be discovered by me.
From a young age, I had done a lot of theater and musical theater. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with my life, but every time I was away from acting, I just felt very incomplete and a little stir crazy.
I felt Arsenal had let a lot of players go. When Thierry left I felt it was time for me to do something different and challenging.
Before Hurricane Katrina, I always felt like I could come back home. And home was a real place, and also it had this mythical weight for me. Because of the way that Hurricane Katrina ripped everything away, it cast that idea in doubt.
I gave myself permission to feel and experience all of my emotions. In order to do that, I had to stop being afraid to feel. In order to do that, I taught myself to believe that no matter what I felt or what happened when I felt it, I would be okay.
To have felt too much is to end in feeling nothing.
I think every day there is some new actress comes out and inspires me to do something else… like Hilary Swank. After she did Boys Don’t Cry, I felt this yearning to go out and be even half as good as she was.
For me, I went to NYU, and at that point, it was 1995, and everyone wanted to be Tarantino. I was writing these stupid comedies, and I felt lost.
I don’t like the collusion between high fashion design and high street. You have to know where you stand. I belong to luxury fashion. That’s what I’ve always felt and embraced. I like the best quality, the best fabrics and the most creative field in fashion. I will stay consistent. I belong to this world.
I do not want to name any individual names, but I felt like when I was working in Hollywood, there were some fellow colleagues of mine who didn’t even look me in the eyes because I was Asian.
Who doesn’t love ‘Frogger?’ It draws its power from our shared memories of powerlessness. Wherever we are now, at one time or another we have all felt the poor frog‘s anxiety in the face of the world’s intransigence, its blind and callous disregard for our happiness or well-being.
Growing up, I never really felt like anything was my own. I moved a lot, and I never belonged anywhere.
I think I’m learning to be bolder in my career choices and be more confident in my personal life. I haven’t always felt very secure as an individual, but now I feel I certain confidence and sense of self that gets me through the day a lot better than before.
I’ve always felt embraced by the Broadway community even before I felt like I earned it.
I felt like my body was the only reason why people liked me.
When I found out this was going to be the last ‘Star Wars’ film that was ever going to be made, I felt pretty privileged to be in it.
Whatever I was doing, even when I was at school, I never repressed anything that I felt. I wasn’t flamboyant; I was actually quite reticent most of the time. But if I felt I had to do something, I did it.
The first think I did when I found out I was a finalist, was, I don’t remember, because it felt like it was an out of body experience.
There’s just something about the audiences in Detroit that I’ve always felt connected to. Detroit is different.
I have never been in a natural place and felt that it was a waste of time. I never have. And it’s a relief. If I’m walking around a desert or whatever, every second is worthwhile.
I’ve been lucky enough to be surrounded by people that were always supporting me, and I never felt pressure.
Remember – the universal language is not texted, emailed, or spoken. It is felt.
If you’re playing a character who says whatever he wants, I felt free to say whatever I wanted on set.
I think a lot of people are projecting their own troubles and fears concerning sexuality onto those around them, and it does result in the perpetuation of a lot of hateful notions. As long as I can remember, I’ve felt really horrified watching those dynamics play out.
For me, integrity is the consistency of words and actions. Part of the way that you do that is to ask people questions on some of the most difficult issues that you confront. ‘Take me through where you felt you had to compromise your values.’
My senior year I felt I put a lot more time into the offseason to make a lot more happen. Going out my senior year, I felt like I did everything I wanted to do and more. I felt like I dominated and I feel comfortable going to the next level and that I’m ready.
I’ve always felt misunderstood. Growing up, it’s been my word against the teachers’ or my parents’ word, and nobody would ever listen to me.
I always felt really alone because no one wanted to talk about the things that I enjoyed, and that was really rap music and hip-hop as a culture. You know, having the shoes, using the words, buying the magazines, seeing the videos. And I had nobody to share it with, so I feel like I lived a lot online.
I was 24 when I was embroiled in a high-profile lawsuit. This was 2014, long before, en masse and on social media, we said #MeToo and #TimesUp. At the time, I felt completely alone. Visceral, hateful online harassment from strangers left me paranoid and anxious for years afterward.
I’ve never felt that I’ve had some great fashion sense of my own – I tend to wear what my wife tells me to wear.
The death of my husband, coming immediately after the general knowledge of the discoveries with which his name is associated, was felt by the public, and especially by the scientific circles, to be a national misfortune.
I know and I’ve always felt for Canada that we recognize that diversity is a great source of strength.
Patriotism, when it wants to make itself felt in the domain of learning, is a dirty fellow who should be thrown out of doors.
They were involved in a firefight and felt they were surrounded. Whether they escaped from that and were fleeing and went in the wrong direction, we don’t know.
I grew up in big cities my whole life, and in my late 20s, I just felt like I was looking for something else.
In my childhood I always felt that I was treated unjustly, without a mother, sick, and with the threat of punishment in Hell hanging over my head.
I’ve just always felt that I’ve been slept on, so I’m just trying to wake people up.
I know that it’s probably not a good idea for a comedian, especially a satirist, to support a public policy group or a politician. This is something I learned only too well years ago when I did a fundraiser for Pol Pot. A few years later I saw ‘The Killing Fields,’ and I’ve got to tell you, I just felt like a schmuck.
When I felt rather overcome with my father’s opposition, I said as firmly as I could, that I must have this or something else, that I could not live without some real work.
I’ve never had a body issue; I’ve never had a self-confidence issue, and there’s been very few times in my life where I’ve felt down about the way I look or the way I feel.
Sacramento is where I grew up, so I felt like it had not been given its proper due in cinema.
For ‘Regulate,’ I was at home, and I came up with it. I was listening to Michael McDonald‘s ‘I Keep Forgettin’.’ It was a record that I always loved, from being a kid and my parents playing it when they had their company of friends over. It was a record that just stuck in my head, and it just felt good.
I probably felt most out of place as a young kid growing up in Sri Lanka. My mental world was somewhere else, partly because of reading and daydreaming.
And I was ashamed of myself for feeling like I had to do that in order to look a certain way. I felt misshapen, just not natural anymore. And I think it was a big stimulator of my drug use.
I’m still a kid. I’m like six years old. But it’s just a matter of wanting to get up, it’s just a big journey. I felt like when I left home that I was on a journey, and I still am.
I felt that ‘English Vinglish’ was tailor-made for me since I found my character Shashi so relatable. Her simplicity and sensitivity attracted me towards the role.
Yes, yes, I’m very happy that I finally got through this match, beat No. 7 in the world. It’s my best win so far. So I’m really happy the way I play today and felt really strong on the court physically, mentally.
It was important to me that Beau and Hunter felt our family was whole, and that meant we got to define our relationship, not anyone else.
But growing as an India cricketer it was about the blue jersey and the pride we all felt wearing that jersey.
I was pretty as a child and I felt that I wasn’t very manly and that plagued me for years.
My first TV experience, it was so bad. I just didn’t feel a creative atmosphere. I felt like we were just pawns to deliver lines. Everyone was telling me that’s just television. I said, ‘OK, I’m going to stay far away from television!
I didn’t feel like I fitted in. I felt like I was a hindrance to A-ha.
The president felt that it was important to send an ordinary citizen to experience the excitement of space travel as a representative for all Americans.
I’ve always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.
Everybody has felt a little sweet but psycho, and I’m sure everybody has been called sweet but psycho.
Some people say they feel very small when they think about space. I felt more expansive, very connected to the universe.
With writing, I felt like it was just my free place where no one told me what to do because it was just my own.
I mean, Emily Harris was his wife. And she seemed to resent his leadership, but on the other hand, she felt like a good soldier, that he had to be the leader.
As African-Americans, people of that generation felt pretty much if they were going to see changes in the world, they had to make sacrifices and step up to the plate. I’m very proud that my parents happened to be people who did. They were not privileged to have a formal education.
I didn’t know much at all about YG before I arrived there the first day. It felt like something far removed from me. I never thought I’d actually be doing it for real.
I went to the University of Arizona. I stopped because I went there for two years and I felt like I experienced college or whatever. I’m over it. I like Hollywood better.
I regrettably wasted time at university by being overwhelmed and intimidated by the talent of other composers. I felt stuck and didn’t know what I was doing there. I enjoyed my experience, but I didn’t grab it in the way I would now.
I was very innocent and shielded as a child, so I didn’t know a lot about music or dancing. When I was in Primary Six, no one would participate in a talent show, so I decided to go on. When the audience applauded me, I felt euphoric, and I started dancing right after that!
I’m a grown man. You know, I’ve been in a lot of scrapes, but I never felt like I got so – there are probably a lot of things I should have done that I didn’t do.
Distance doesn’t exist, in fact, and neither does time. Vibrations from love or music can be felt everywhere, at all times.
For my teen years and all of my twenties it felt like I was trying to live up to this expectation of being a man and what that meant – not just what clothes I wore, but how I acted.
As a young man, every bone in my body wanted to pick up a machine gun and kill Germans. And yet I had absolutely no reason to do so. Certainly nobody invited me to do the job. But that’s what I felt that I was trained to do. Now no part of my upbringing was militaristic.
I was always longing to do, emotionally and physically, what my male counterparts always got to do. I just felt envious, every time I saw a movie that I was in awe of, and it was usually a male lead. And those kinds of roles weren’t available. They just weren’t being written.
I always felt a bit different. When I’m with boys, I feel comfortable. When I’m with girls, I catch feelings. It’s not anything I can control.
I never quit trying. I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.
I’ve never been a conceited person or cocky, never felt boastful, but I always had a sense of self-worth; I always had a real sense of myself.
I felt that working at an office from the early morning was impossible for me. Anyway, I wanted to be free from that lifestyle as soon as possible. I wanted to take it easy.
Americans have so far put up with inequality because they felt they could change their status. They didn’t mind others being rich, as long as they had a path to move up as well. The American Dream is all about social mobility in a sense – the idea that anyone can make it.
There have been times when I felt suicidal and I would stop my head from going in that direction of negativity because I thought there’d be something I’d miss that was funny in the future. If there’s a chance I’m going to laugh tomorrow then want to live to experience that.
