Trolling can be a great way to engage with the world, a way to regain self-esteem and happiness, or, dare I say it, a way of life.

They might in the future more than ever before engage in hunting beavers.
Samuel de Champlain

Artwork operates on two different levels: On one level, there’s artwork as a mode of expressivity, and then there’s the other side, where the image is a construction that is meant to engage in a discursive field in order to perform a particular function.

Hip-hop started as this niche moment, and the values of it, the cultures that it carried on its back; language, clothes, the way you wear your clothes, the items that you consume, all came with the music as an art form. And those things helped transform how people buy, shop, speak, engage.
Whatever films I make, the mandate is that it should touch the audiences and engage them from the first scene.

Hollywood, Twitter, our friends – they all contribute to a community of snark. The more we engage in the way that everyone else engages, the more followers, likes, and RTs we get. But we can’t rail against the cyberbullies without acknowledging what we also contribute to a culture of cruelty.

It’s in our ability to selectively engage and disengage our moral standards, and it helps explain how people can be barbarically cruel in one moment and compassionate the next.

If enough people openly engage in conduct once considered reprehensible, we rewrite the rule book and assume that God, as a good democrat, will go along.
James L. Buckley

As a citizen of a community, if you never vote or engage, don’t be surprised when the outcome doesn’t serve your interests; you’ve never done anything to push things in the right direction.
We don’t look at problems logically, we look at them emotionally. We look at them through the guts. We look at them as if we’re doing a high school problem, like what is beautiful, what makes me recognized among my peers. We don’t go and think about things. We, as a society, don’t wish to engage in rational thought.
If you engage with the police, filled with fear, you’re more likely to make really bad decisions that than provoke them to take action.

Indeed, though people increasingly learn and interact online, we retain a fundamental need to engage in person.

What’s interesting about Twitter and the influencers that someone follows – like, say, Shaquille O’Neal – is that they see someone who is using the exact same tools that they have access to, and I think that inspires this hope to be able to really engage with someone like him.

Bill de Blasio

Blase J. Cupich
Conservatives have the advantage of knowing how to debate each other on issues, principles, and priorities, and that is where they should engage Trump.

I’m sorry; that’s unacceptable.
My m.o. as far as choosing projects is I really try not to work. I try to not do the scripts that are offered me. I’m in this wonderful position to be able to do that. The reason I do that is because I know what it takes once I engage, what that means for me personally and for my wife.

I’ve also long since realized that the way to really engage children is to give out prizes; it’s amazing how it concentrates their minds.

Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.

I think we need to ask serious questions about how we engage militarily, when we engage militarily, and on what basis we engage militarily. What kind of intelligence do we have to justify a military engagement?

We don’t want A.I. to engage in cyberbullying, stock manipulation, or terrorist threats; we don’t want the F.B.I. to release A.I. systems that entrap people into committing crimes.

After heart surgery you can go two ways, you can kind of get scared, shrink on to your sofa and keep yourself safe, or you can engage with life again. I probably was in danger of taking the first option.

Our leaders should certainly engage passionate advocacy of needed reforms, and equally strong criticism of policies they believe are destructive to America.

A.I. will make it possible for the Internet to directly engage people in the real world, through robotics and drones and little machines that will do smart things by themselves.

What would you have if you didn’t have a murder in a mystery? You’d have something for the lower-level readers. When you get up into the upper levels, there’s nothing that will engage you or compel you or get your emotions churning like a murder. It’s the ultimate stakes.

It is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. So we don’t.

If you want to be a real human being – a real woman, a real man – you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage. You must stand up. I always say to people, ‘Look around; look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action.’
White people get to do that all of the time. They get to engage in bad behavior, even felonious behavior, but they rarely wind up in jail. But as a black person, losing your temper can cost you your life. Or insisting on your rights can cost you your life.

Kerry James Marshall

Jean-Marie Le Pen

It’s become this sort of strange competition about who’s in the coolest place, who’s in the coolest street. Suddenly we’re having to engage with all those social pressures. It’s helpful, I find, as a mother and a teacher, to say you’ve always got a choice.
Americans voted for Trump. A lot of people in this country feel the system of representative democracy hasn’t worked for them for a long, long time. And those are the issues that this election gives us an unfortunate opportunity to engage with. And engaging instead with the Russia conspiracy takes up that bandwidth.
It’s tempting to engage in anti-gun polemics and hope that popular opinion will dramatically shift, but it is also likely a mistake. The smarter course for those who want stronger federal gun-control laws anytime soon is legislative stewardship and compromise.

Tahar Ben Jelloun
The reason that I started the Black Futures Lab is because I have some clarity about what I think needs to happen in relationship to electoral organizing. It’s not a destination. It is a set of tools that we use to engage people that we care about, en masse, around issues that are important to us.
Now is the time to draw a clean, clear, bright line and say if you are engaging in speech over the Internet you do not have to check with your lawyer or your accountant. You are a free American, and you have the opportunity to engage in free speech over the Internet.
The cure for cynicism is simply to engage honestly.

Digital is clearly the way forward as can be seen from the numerous marketing efforts undertaken to promote a film today. Besides, we at T-Series are firm believers and followers of the digital age.

In the end, the public has the right to know about any undertakings top public officials engage in that may influence how they conduct the people’s business.

I often go into the lions’ den and engage with those I know oppose my views, because I want to understand what other people think.
The 3D world allows you to engage even more with a film because you’re somehow drawn into the landscape or the universe of that scene. Even when it’s two people talking at a table, you feel like you’re a third party.
