Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Resonance Quotes from famous authors such as Ben Okri, Sam Neill, James Rainwater, Alec Baldwin, Harry Dean Stanton. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
It is not important for me as a writer that you leave a piece of writing of mine with either an agreement or even a resonance with what I have said. What is important is that you leave with the resonance of what you have felt and what you thought in reaction to that.
I like Taika Waititi a lot. I thought ‘Boy’ was a really wonderful film, had great resonance. Very sad but also very funny. I thought ‘What We Do in the Shadows,’ the vampire film, was fantastic.
The research included neutron resonance spectroscopy, the angular distribution of pion elastic and inelastic scattering on nuclei with optical model fitting.
The way we divorce in this country hurts people on the deepest level. The ripple effect and resonance of it is remarkable, vast – vast – and if I ever went into Parliament, I would become very involved in that.
Speech lessons probably did more for my singing voice – they teach you breathing, resonance.
I really did like ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ But not seeing women represented in that world, it definitely had less resonance for me.
As our nation has become more divided, there is a resonance for a message to bring people together.
Modern medicine uses imaging ‘windows’ such as magnetic resonance imaging scanners to bring into view otherwise unseen vital information that skilled physicians can use for the benefit of their patients.
What a great poem teaches you – and it’s not intellectual at all – is the resonance in the language that’s heard there. This goes back to the very origins of poetry and to the very origins of language.
Obama’s gift for delivering set-piece oratorical tours de force had special resonance to Americans fed up with a president who could hardly string two words together without a collision of syntax and whose idea of clever was the single entendre.
The thing that has always interested me – amidst the scale, the historical spectacle, or the social significance or the political resonance – has been the relationships.
My resonance to Magneto and Xavier was borne more out of the Holocaust. It was coming face to face with evil, and how do you respond to it? In Magneto’s case it was violence begets violence. In Xavier’s it was the constant attempt to find a better way.
I think Michael Crawford realised, I think we all realised, once we’d gone the route of casting a very young girl, you can’t really cast a 65 year old man opposite. Slightly different resonance I think. No, we weren’t going to go there. We’d have Jack Nicholson in the lead.
Consciousness, rather than being an epiphenomenon of matter, is actually the source of matter. It differentiates into space time, energy, information, and matter. Even though this view is an ancient view, an ancient world view, it is now finding some resonance amongst a few scientists.
Our scribblings are usually not lyrics but whirrings, without colour or resonance, like the tone of an engine-wheel. I believe that the cause lies in the fact that when people write, they forget for the most part to dig deeply into themselves and to feel the whole import and truth of what they are writing.
‘Ocean’s Kingdom’ is a fairy story with no subtext, no resonance – it’s not about anything except its water-logged plot.
Sometimes nationalism can be jingoistic – even fascistic – but it can also be a constructive impetus that helps to unify a nation. Those whose nationalist critique of parties finds resonance with masses of voters can acquire vast power. We can only hope that they know what to do with it.
I have Tom Ford, Gucci, Saint Laurent, McQueen, and odd pieces that I’ve just acquired because I happened to have come across them and felt they have some historical resonance.
I tend to look out for things with a resonance to my youth – artists or objects that seemed romantic all those years ago. I never buy anything purely for its value. I like possessions that smile back at me.
I am of that ’60s generation, and for people of my age, that phrase ‘change the world’ has a real resonance.
At Amazon, we are very careful about what big strategic bets we place, but the ones we make, we keep iterating until we find something that we think has resonance with customers.
I generally like very visually striking films. I love a lot of Stanley Kubrick’s films. I would have to say ‘Dr. Strangelove’, which of course has got resonance in ‘Watchmen’. It’s a favorite movie of mine.
As the issue of youth fitness – from obesity to proper exercise regimens – takes on more resonance in schools and communities across the country, CrossFit Kids and other preschool fitness programs are raising questions about when and how children should start playing organized sports or hitting the gym.
I think you sense the metaphorical resonance of what you’re writing without analysing it too carefully. That leads you down dead ends. You stop imagining things and start writing towards these themes.
All I know is, I play the guitar, beat it out, and sing a song that has some damn resonance that we feel as musicians. We send it out and people get it, and that’s a good thing.
Any cuts that are done to any film, they’re usually things that have some personal resonance for whoever has got permission to cut it and feels they should. But it has very little to do with the actual weight, the truth, of the piece.
You can look at ‘Rumours’ and say, ‘Well, the album is bright, and it’s clean, and it’s sunny.’ But everything underneath is so dark and murky. What was going on between us created a resonance that goes beyond the music itself.
I studied architecture in New York. So, really I was very moved, like everyone else, to try to contribute something that has that resonance and profundity of it means to all of us.
I think, to me, power really is being able to have some kind of resonance and to be able to impact other people’s lives in a positive way.
I am trying to do the best work I possibly can and making movies that will have resonance for years to come. I think if you try for an Oscar or a goal like that, the more people are going to see it as transparent. It’s not on my radar. If it happens, great, but I’m happy to continue working as I am, really.
When I landed the first 900 at the XGames, it was just – it was a personal achievement. It was something that I have strived for for years and years and years, and in a lot of ways had given up on it. But I just didn’t think of the resonance that would have.
I think that I am interested in the resonance between character drama and high stakes, either situational or political or social or other kind of elevated drama, and I tend to find that those things combust.
It’s tempting to say the Ph.D. didn’t have an effect, but it’s not so. I think whatever resonance I may be able to achieve is in part simply from the amount of reading and learning that I acquired along the way.
A work will only have deep resonance if the kind of darkness I can generate is something that is resident in me already.
I feel that, historically, the Art Deco period has the most resonance for me. As a person, it has to be the plucky Clara Bow, the heroine of American silent movies of the 1920s. She embodied feminine dressing mixed with men’s style. All this then evolved into the exquisite style and simplicity of Coco Chanel.
The fascination for me writing about crime in Berlin was the idea that there was this much bigger crime taking place in the background, a fantastically epochal moment in history which is just going on. That just sort of makes the whole thing have a greater resonance.
The death of a language. The word has the same kind of reluctant resonance as it has when we talk about the death of a person. And indeed, that’s how it should be. For that’s how it is. A language dies only when the last person who speaks it dies.
I count all the time on resonance. I call on this, you see.
I started hitching about the country when I was 16 or 17 years old. I found the music that was played around the country – Irish music – had a particular resonance.
The two things that matter the most to me: emotional resonance and rocket launchers. Party of Five, a brilliant show, and often made me cry uncontrollably, suffered ultimately from a lack of rocket launchers.
Primes seem to me to be these unarbitrary, unique, fated things. It cannot be coincidence that the mythical numbers of storytelling like 3, 7, and 13 are random. The lower-end primes have incredible resonance in fiction and art.
In a long poem or a sequence of poems, you’re trying to formalize your obsessions and give them a shape and a name. The key is to realize if the connections you are making are ones with resonance.
The bottom line is, when it comes to an actor and his performance, whether nominated or not, it simply has to do with whether that character had enough resonance with the audience. You know, to the filmgoers. And that something that you can’t control.
Songs bring us into connection with each other. When they resonate, when we’re in resonance, singing together, we become one for that 3 1/2 or four minutes the song lasts. It takes away that isolated loneliness that modern life is so full of.
You have to write badly to write at all. If it’s crappy, I will rewrite it later. But it will be mine. You can hear the resonance of an artist who goes into herself.
