There is something about the stage that makes it so much better than being in the studio. I always connect with my audience; a concert to me is a collaboration between me and the audience, and I love it so much.
It’s quite fun to mess with the human voice. It’s quite special in the sense that the voice is the #1 instrument that we can connect with; it doesn’t sound too alien. I think that’s the key is to find the line between sounding human and sounding robotic. That’s an area that I like to explore a lot.
We create the technology to connect the world. We are a large network company and not restricted to just the telecom space.

I represent a rural state and live in a small town. Small merchants make up the majority of Vermont’s small businesses and thread our state together.

If you connect with an artist because of what they make as a body of work, you feel like they’re your friend. You feel like you’re on the journey of connection with them because they see the world the same way you do. That’s so powerful, and if you use that, you can genuinely change minds.
I’ve always been a firm believer in local news, because it’s an opportunity to connect with the community where you live.
By ‘flat’ I did not mean that the world is getting equal. I said that more people in more places can now compete, connect and collaborate with equal power and equal tools than ever before.

Art has this ability to allow you to connect back through history in the same way that biology does. I’m always looking for source material.

I feel my writing comes from a desire to… well, it’s motivated by many things, but it’s inherently a contradiction in that I’m writing for myself, and it’s a very interior journey. On the other hand, I feel that writers do make that interior journey out of a desire to connect.
We try not to pull any punches and be straightforward, and I think that’s what helped us connect with everybody across the board.
I think sometimes less is more. I don’t think it helps to overdo exercising – I think you need to do it to keep your body healthy and fit, but there is a fine line between, you know, healthy and obsession. You have to build your foundation first. Your brain has to sort of connect to your body.
I enjoy what Twitter is because I can really connect with the fans and it’s a great way to share information with them and it’s also a great way to entertain. I like being able to put a smile on people’s faces and letting them know what I’m doing.

I don’t know what life was like 1,000 years ago, but I imagine there was the same struggle: people trying to connect with each other.

Some writers may hate interacting on social media. And if you do, don’t do it, because it shows. If you are uncomfortable being out in public, that shows, too, and makes the reader uncomfortable. So find the best way for you to connect with your readers and a way that you enjoy.
I think for new artists the hardest thing is putting the face with a name. People maybe heard our song on the radio or something but until they get several impressions of who you are – from whatever it is, whether TV or a live show, I feel like they don’t quite connect the dots.
At the age of nine, I simultaneously fell in love with two Dutch sisters because they seemed so beautifully strange, and their clothes were mysterious and alluring – added to which, they could not speak a word of English.

We’re living in miraculous times where connections are made at the blink of an eye, the tap of a thumb, and the click of a mouse. We can never replace human interaction, but these simple actions can be powerful and meaningful to those we connect with.

Really, I’m incredibly disjointed and not candid. Just in general, my thoughts tend to come out in little spurts that don’t necessarily connect. If you hang around long enough, you can find the linear path. But it will take a second. That is why these interviews never go well for me.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

I love tattoos. And mine symbolise who I really am. I have a Samurai on my left arm. At a subconscious level, I connect to this warrior and model myself on his discipline, skills and honour.

No matter what as an artist that’s always what you want to do, you want to connect to the audience, you want to be able to send whatever message it is that you’re singing about, you want to be able to convey that – and not make them feel – you want them to feel it, you want them to feel what you feel.
My dream is that people will find a way back home, into their bodies, to connect with the earth, to connect with each other, to connect with the poor, to connect with the broken, to connect with the needy, to connect with people calling out all around us, to connect with the beauty, poetry, the wildness.

I think that connection with humans is so important. Sometimes I’ll do this monologue and talk to the crowd, like, ‘Come on, let’s really connect here.’ I don’t think a lot of people understand it’s a two-way exchange. Some people go to a show and are like, ‘Yeah, you make me feel.’ That’s not how it works.
I hate the term ’emo.’ It turned into this genre of music, when all music, if you connect with it, is emotional.

All of the agreed-upon pariahs throughout pop-culture history put their identities into the thing we decry. And yet we derive our own identities from the act of hating.

Social media seemed to promise a way to better connect with people; instead, it seems to have made it easier to tune out the people we don’t agree with.

I basically use Facebook and Twitter and MySpace to communicate with the fans. I don’t think it’s necessarily about advancing my career, but I do want to be able to connect with my fans.

I find the practice of yoga very spiritual and taking the time to just be and to reflect through meditation and chanting helps me to connect to a higher energy.
Most great entrepreneurs I know are nothing like the other kids. They’re almost like tangent lines – those lines that seem to go nowhere. Nothing connects them, until they get out in the real world. Then they connect just fine.
I love ‘Mastermind’. It’s touching that people spend so much time learning. I do have quite good general knowledge, but I wouldn’t consider going on the show. I also like watching ‘Only Connect.’
Whenever I’m trying to decide how to spend my precious time, energy, or money, I ask myself a series of questions. ‘Will this broaden or deepen my relationships?’ ‘Will this contribute to an atmosphere of growth in my life?’ ‘Is this a way to ‘Be Gretchen?’ and ‘Will this help connect me to my past?’
I’m not subject to their rise and fall because I’m not accepted by them, so I have my own little curve going on. A lot of it is because of how much I play, I think I connect like when all you had was Vaudeville, I think I have an audience by performing a lot!
Millennials, minorities, women – until we can connect with those populations, we’re going to have some difficulty electorally.
I’ve found I sometimes have the best success working on characters I didn’t really connect to right away.
Sitcoms always made the most sense to me. I grew up watching them every day with my dad. Every Monday, Tuesday night, we would be sitting in front of the television watching any kind of sitcom. I connect with that more, but I love to do whatever kind of role.
There is a biblical injunction to tell your children, but the sages who created the Seder several thousand years ago understood that it had to be more than just speaking: that in order for something to connect so emotionally in human beings, it had to be relived.

My own experience with being interviewed is mixed. I suppose they’re a part of my job, and as I would like readers to connect with my books, I do them.

Non-human primates spend hours a day grooming each other. And with humans, touching is also important. It’s a way to form bonds and connect in modern society. But you can also speed up the use of conscious purposes once you’re aware of that, and it can be manipulated.
And it turns out that tribes, not money, not factories, that can change our world, that can change politics, that can align large numbers of people. Not because you force them to do something against their will. But because they wanted to connect.

Walking is magic. Can’t recommend it highly enough. I read that Plato and Aristotle did much of their brilliant thinking together while ambulating. The movement, the meditation, the health of the blood pumping, and the rhythm of footsteps… this is a primal way to connect with one’s deeper self.
Millennials easily connect the dots between good education and good opportunities, and they also understand that it isn’t just hard work that determines how well a child will be educated – it also depends on where they live and the resources their parents commit to their education.
