„Q: Everyone picks up a certain emotional vulnerability in your music.“

—  Chris Martin musician, co-founder of Coldplay 1977

Yeah, but I don’t think that’s just a feminine thing. All men are soft and vulnerable, as well. (...) I think we boys, we men, are actually much weaker and softer than we like to think. source http://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/chris-martin-the-rolling-stone-interview-190116

Contexto: During the 60's, I think, people forgot what emotions were supposed to be. And I don't think they've ever remembered. I think that once you see emotions from a certain angle you can never think of them as real again. That's what more or less has happened to me. I don't really know if I was ever capable of love, but after the '60's I never thought in terms of "love" again.

„I've lost any belief I ever had in scientific policy. I don't think you can have scientific policy. I think science is something like weeds, it just grows of its own accord“

Contexto: I've lost any belief I ever had in scientific policy. I don't think you can have scientific policy. I think science is something like weeds, it just grows of its own accord … and if you've got the right atmosphere, the right situation within universities or within places like CSIRO, then it grows and develops of its own accord. And I believe that science is best left to scientists, that you cannot have managers or directors of science, it's got to be carried out and done by people with ideas, people with concepts, people who feel in their bones that they want to go ahead and develop this, that, or the other concept which occurs to them.

„I would say that there is no art form that has so much in common with film as music. Both affect our emotions directly, not via the intellect.“

—  Ingmar Bergman Swedish filmmaker 1918 - 2007

"Introduction" of Four Screenplays (1960). <!-- Simon & Schuster -->
Contexto: When we experience a film, we consciously prime ourselves for illusion. Putting aside will and intellect, we make way for it in our imagination. The sequence of pictures plays directly on our feelings. Music works in the same fashion; I would say that there is no art form that has so much in common with film as music. Both affect our emotions directly, not via the intellect. And film is mainly rhythm; it is inhalation and exhalation in continuous sequence. Ever since childhood, music has been my great source of recreation and stimulation, and I often experience a film or play musically.
