Tyrell: Is this to be an empathy test? Capillary dilation of the so-called blush response? Fluctuation of the pupil. Involuntary dilation of the iris...
Deckard: We call it Voight-Kampff for short.More [04/06/2007 12:04:00]
I look for a role that hopefully I feel empathy with and that I can understand and love, but also that has that challenge for me to play-a different kind of role, a different type of character, a different time period.More [10/25/2007 12:10:00]
Albert Torena: Where's your empathy, brother? It's a substance abuse problem.
Vincent Hanna: Empathy was yesterday. Today, you're wasting my motherfucking time.More [02/26/2008 12:02:00]
What you have assembled here are the national dregs, the misfits and neurotics. In short, the fuckups of our culture.

Buck Loner:
That ain't so. They are the carefully selected candidates for future stardom.


Buck Loner:
You can't talk to me like that, young lady. I'll have you outta here so fast, your hair'll curl.

You just try it and I'll take this place away from you lock, stock and empathy class.

Now, Ms. Cossell, in all the time that you've known them, have you ever questioned Sam's ability as a father?



Never. Look at Lucy. She's strong. She displays true empathy for people, all kinds of people. I know that you all think she's as smart as she is despite him, but it's because of him.

So what you're saying is you don't worry about Lucy's future?

No, I do.


I worry all the time. I worry if they take Lucy away from her father they will take away an enormous piece of her, and I worry that she will spend the rest of her life trying to fill that hole.

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
I have absolutely no empathy for camels. I didn't care for being abused in the Middle East by those horrible, horrible, horrible creatures. They don't like people. It's not at all like the relationship between horses and humans.More [07/18/2011 06:07:57]
It's got to do with putting yourself in other people's shoes and seeing how far you can come to truly understand them. I like the empathy that comes from acting.More [10/10/2011 11:10:12]
Yes, but it has changed. I used to have empathy at a young woman's level. "Oh, that one is sad and then we run there and fix it..."More [02/26/2012 12:02:15]
What I wanted to do was write a contemporary folk music and document the struggles and triumphs of people I felt a real empathy with.More [06/04/2012 04:06:51]
When you start to develop your powers of empathy and imagination, the whole world opens up to you.More [10/12/2012 03:10:08]
It was accepted tacitly that when he spoke of "our" people it was a black speaking for blacks, subtly different from when he used ... "we" or "us" and this meant an empathy between him and her.... It had come to her that this was the basis that ought to have existed between a man and a woman in general, where it was a question not of a difference of ancestry but of sex.More [04/12/2013 04:04:27]
Normal people have an incredible lack of empathy. They have good emotional empathy, but they don't have much empathy for the autistic kid who is screaming at the baseball game because he can't stand the sensory overload. Or the autistic kid having a meltdown in the school cafeteria because there's too much stimulation.More [10/09/2013 06:10:03]
If your emotional abilities aren't in hand, if you don't have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can't have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.More [12/01/2013 07:12:32]
Having played many roles of scientific intellect I do have an empathy for that world. It's been hard on me because flying the Enterprise for seven years in Star Trek and sitting in Cerebro in X-men has led people to believe that I know what I'm talking about. But I'm still trying to work out how to operate the air conditioning unit on my car.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

Learning is a result of listening, which in turn leads to even better listening and attentiveness to the other person. In other words, to learn from the child, we must have empathy, and empathy grows as we learn.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Women are, in my view, natural peacemakers. As givers and nurturers of life, through their focus on human relationships and their engagement with the demanding work of raising children and protecting family life, they develop a deep sense of empathy that cuts through to underlying human realities.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I have a profound empathy for people who are in the public eye, whether they manifest it themselves or whether it happened by accident - it doesn't matter to me. I think there's a great misunderstanding of what it is to be famous.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I have so much empathy for these young actors that are 19 and all of a sudden they're beautiful and famous and rich. I'm like, 'Oh my God, I'd be dead.'More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Republicans rarely criticize Obama for lack of empathy - in part because liberals have traditionally been seen as standing up for the weak and the vulnerable. Conservatives can be just as empathetic. But they believe that, in most cases, it's not government's role to be the primary dispenser of empathy.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

When a mother quarrels with a daughter, she has a double dose of unhappiness hers from the conflict, and empathy with her daughter's from the conflict with her. Throughout her life a mother retains this special need to maintain a good relationship with her daughter.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
You can't write about the past and ignore religion. It was such a fundamental, mind-shaping, driving force for pre-modern societies. I'm very interested in what religion does to us - its capacity to create love and empathy or hatred and violence.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
We shall listen, not lecture learn, not threaten. We will enhance our safety by earning the respect of others and showing respect for them. In short, our foreign policy will rest on the traditional American values of restraint and empathy, not on military might.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Obama often criticizes policies that place the interests of the powerful ahead of the powerless. But through his administration's support of abortion rights, Obama shows his lack of empathy for society's most powerless.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I've always thought of acting as more of an exercise in empathy, which is not to be confused with sympathy. You're trying to get inside a certain emotional reality or motivational reality and try to figure out what that's about so you can represent it.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Like many people, most Libertarians feel empathy and sympathy for less fortunate people. But they know you can't have perfection in a world of limited resources.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
You have to have sympathy for and an empathy with a character in order to play them.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I think we are living in selfish times. I'm the first one to say that I'm the most selfish. We live in the so-called 'first world,' and we may be first in a lot of things like technology, but we are behind in empathy.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
While eschewing emotion - and its companion, vulnerability - Obama should be careful not to sacrifice empathy, the 'I feel your pain' connection that sustained Clinton. This connection is the shorthand people use to measure their leaders' intentions. If people believe you're on their side, they will trust your decisions.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Empathy is really the opposite of spiritual meanness. It's the capacity to understand that every war is both won and lost. And that someone else's pain is as meaningful as your own.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Friendship is a living thing that lasts only as long as it is nourished with kindness, empathy and understanding.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Some people think only intellect counts: knowing how to solve problems, knowing how to get by, knowing how to identify an advantage and seize it. But the functions of intellect are insufficient without courage, love, friendship, compassion and empathy.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hope to leave my children a sense of empathy and pity and a will to right social wrongs.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most valuable things in life are not measured in monetary terms. The really important things are not houses and lands, stocks and bonds, automobiles and real estate, but friendships, trust, confidence, empathy, mercy, love and faith.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Communication by empathy is a talent that few possess.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The integrative tendencies of the individual operate through the mechanisms of empathy, sympathy, projection, introjection, identification, worship- all of which make him feel that he is a part of some larger entity which transcends the boundaries of the individual self. This psychological urge to belong, to participate, to commune is as primary and real as its opposite. The all-important question is the nature of that higher entity of which the individual feels himself a part.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I got the script to this movie, The Good Girl, I read it in an hour. The writer, Mike White, has an ability to create characters that are so creepy and dysfunctional and human, with this duality that makes people feel empathy for them at the same time. My first thought was 'Was this sent to the right person?' I called my agent. 'Are they sure? Let's say yes before they realize they've sent it to the wrong person!More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hope to leave my children a sense of empathy and pity and a will to right social wrongsMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The wonderful thing about Martha's work is that it showed such sweet empathy with her characters. Their joy was her joy, their fears were hers. At least it felt that way, which is all an artist can ask. Her art was pretty without being precious, sweet without being icky. And she was a truly nice person.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My prayer is that each of us look inside our own hearts. It takes a willingness to pause before we make an assumption. I think all this erupts because we don't wait -- we react. And the willingness to have empathy and just imagine what it would be like to be in someone else's skin -- that's my prayer.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
'Empathy' is the latest code word for liberal activism, for treating the Constitution as malleable clay to be kneaded and molded in whatever form justices want. It represents an expansive view of the judiciary in which courts create policy that couldn't pass the legislative branch or, if it did, would generate voter backlash.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What Mr. Obama wants in a nominee isn't really 'empathy' and 'understanding.' He wants a liberal, activist Supreme Court justice.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Artificial intelligence is growing up fast, as are robots whose facial expressions can elicit empathy and make your mirror neurons quiver.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For me, documentary photography has always come with great responsibility. Not just to tell the story honestly and with empathy, but also to make sure the right people hear it. When you photograph somebody who is in pain or discomfort, they trust you to make sure the images will act as their advocate.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you start to develop your powers of empathy and imagination, the whole world opens up to you.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Anyone who has experienced a certain amount of loss in their life has empathy for those who have experienced loss.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you write, you take the ball and you hold it up to the light and you turn it slowly, and let people draw their own conclusions. And try to bring empathy to all sides of the equation.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Empathy is really the opposite of spiritual meanness. It's the capacity to understand that every war is both won and lost. And that someone else's pain is as meaningful as your own.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
