Fortunately, I chose acting. -Justin Chatwin

There are stereotypes – it's like an invisible line, but somehow you have to find the energy to be strong, to be super-confident, no matter if you are in front of the president of the U.S. or anyone else. -Thalia

What is a disloyal act? A person is disloyal if he treats you as a stranger when, in fact, he belongs to you as a friend or partner. Each of us is bound to some special others by the invisible fibers of loyalty. -Lewis B. Smedes

The relentless invisible storm of radio signals and electronic particles, the hustle and bustle, and the billions of petrol explosions in the engine blocks of trucks and cars seem to churn up the molecules of life and heaven so violently that the beautiful fogs are unable to hold together like they once did. -Michael Leunig

I'm always looking for silhouettes that seem 'invisible' to the eye, as in that it's so well-tailored to your body that you won't even notice what you're wearing. It needs to be dramatic in a subtle way. -Lykke Li

You can be chased home or hit or called names or spit on, and it's over. You have the memory of it, but it's very different from the emotional and psychological experience of feeling invisible, of not learning the confidence to stand up in class and speak. -Chirlane McCray

It's very difficult to play opposite nothing. I did it for, like, six years – I ran from an invisible smoke monster for most of my twenties. -Evangeline Lilly

The first step in Occultism is the study of the invisible Worlds. These Worlds are invisible to the majority of people because of the dormancy of the finer and higher senses whereby they may be perceived, in the same way that the Physical World about us is perceived through the physical senses. -Max Heindel

There are various grades of spiritual sight. One grade enables a man to see the ordinarily invisible ether with the myriads of beings that invest that realm. Other and higher variants give him the faculty to see the desire world and even the world of thought while remaining in the physical body. -Max Heindel

I look to historians for their power to illuminate not just the invisible lineaments of the present, but also that which is not present. What are the roads that were not taken that most shape our own time? -Rick Perlstein

I'm a voyeur. I say that with no embarrassment. If I could have a superpower, being invisible would be it, no question. I'm fascinated by human behavior; observing people and seeing how much story gets told without a lot of dialogue, and how much our brain fills in. -Thomas Schlamme

At town meetings, you can see the shy folks, the ones who have trouble sounding off in public, leaning against the back wall or bending over their knitting. On talk radio, those people are invisible, but they're there. It's a mistake to think that the blowhards who call in speak for the nation. -Donella Meadows

I think one reason, obviously, that I spend so much time in one place is that I've been lucky enough to travel a lot, and now there are other different, invisible trains that are more interesting to me. -Pico Iyer

I always aspire to that, where it feels like the film was made by the characters as opposed to the filmmakers. I try to be invisible. -Spike Jonze

During one new moon at perigee, I stood on high ground, watching salt ponds overflow, cover the beach, and meet the ocean. Because the moon was invisible, the water was black as it drowned the sand, and the event felt primal – which in fact it was, because it was nature. -Luanne Rice

The living cell almost always contains, locked in its interior, the visible or invisible products of its physiological activity or its nourishment. -Albrecht Kossel

When you are the invisible man to the head coach, the only option is to head for the exit. -Zlatan Ibrahimovic

The time for invisible boundaries that guard the 'purity' of gaming as a niche subculture is over. The violent macho power fantasy will no longer define what gaming is all about. -Anita Sarkeesian

I think my darkest days were probably when I was catering. I would go to these parties and pass out hors d'oeuvres, and it's like you're invisible. I remember one catering captain told me that all you are is a tray that comes into their space for a moment and then you leave. It was one of the most depressing things I've ever been told. -Jack Falahee

I loved reading when I grew up but did feel totally invisible because I couldn't see myself and my life reflected in the books I was reading. -Malorie Blackman

In my world view, clearly the Internet is a huge force multiplier for Indian media because it has not crept up on us like something invisible; we've seen it all play out in the West. -Raghav Bahl

As the father of eight children, I'm quite convinced that each individual arrives here with their own unique personality. We are intended here from an invisible held of infinite potentiality. That which has no form, has no boundaries – it's the I that's in the ever-changing body. -Wayne Dyer

All my life had been dominated by a sign, often invisible but no less real for that, which said: 'Reserved for Europeans Only.' -Peter Abrahams

Since 9/11, the U.S.A. Patriot Act has torn down the invisible wall that was perceived as preventing the FBI and CIA from sharing information. -Ronald Kessler

Direction is the most invisible part of the theatrical art. You don't see it. -Terry Teachout

Here's what's terrifying about Ebola. Ebola is invisible. It's a monster without a face.

It has the qualities of a monster. -Richard Preston

I wrote for so many years in a bubble, the way everyone does, and there were large swaths of time where you think you're doing this for nothing. An audience is crucial, a back and forth with the invisible readers. -Patrick deWitt

Had I not stepped into the saddle in the first place, entire cultures, histories, and most importantly, profound connections with people and animals whom I now counted as my friends would have otherwise passed by, invisible. -Tim Cope

When everything goes wrong, what a joy to test your soul and see if it has endurance and courage. An invisible and all-powerful enemy – some call him God, others the Devil, seem to rush upon us to destroy us; but we are not destroyed. -Nikos Kazantzakis

I think Direct Cinema's trying to be insightful by looking at reality in a very close way while, in fact, much more is staged than we like to think. In cinema verite, it's about trying to make something invisible visible – the role of fantasy and imagination in everyday life. -Joshua Oppenheimer

The Real is ever-present, like the screen on which the cinematographic pictures move. While the picture appears on it, the screen remains invisible. Stop the picture, and the screen will become clear. All thoughts and events are merely pictures moving on the screen of Pure Consciousness, which alone is real. -Ramana Maharshi

When I was president, I worked hard to give you more peace and shared prosperity, to give you an America where nobody is invisible or counted out.

I'm a huge believer in story being this invisible scaffolding that no one ever recognizes or realizes is actually making the audience engaged in what's going on. There is no formula for it. -Alan Yang

The great thing about writing is that it has to work without that invisible layer of the reader's added knowledge. -Rachel Kushner

Thousands of our post-9/11 veterans carry the invisible burden of post-traumatic stress, and there is an overwhelming need to expand the available treatment options. -Ron DeSantis

We often forget that everything we see, animate or inanimate, is a visual manifestation of the work of our invisible God.

A sacrament is a visible sign of an invisible reality. -Mother Angelica

One of my favourite things to think about is, if you could be invisible and go back in time, where would you go? I've always said ancient Egypt. I would love to see them building the pyramids, and I've always had a real fascination with medieval time and monarchy in medieval times. -Elizabeth Debicki

The review I've been most offended by came when I played Hamlet. I'd always prided myself on being an 'invisible actor' and not getting in the way of the play. But this review didn't mention me once. That's worse than being insulted. -Douglas Hodge

The thing that I've decided is, I don't want to be invisible, but I'd like to be transparent. I want people to see what I'm thinking and see through me. -Terrance Hayes

Invisible things are the only realities; invisible things alone are the things that shall remain. -William Godwin

Apple very deliberately – and this was very much Steve Jobs' point of view – Apple has concentrated its cloud efforts on being invisible. So in other words, stuff just would sync and appear. You change your contacts on one of your devices, and it would appear on all your devices changed. -Walt Mossberg

The resulting prints of 'History's Shadow' make the invisible visible and express through photographic means the shape-shifting nature of time itself and the continuous presence of the past contained within us. -David Maisel

Part of what I do, after feeling invisible for a long time, is make an effort not to be invisible any more. -John Grant

The Internet is a clear example of how our lives have changed in ways we couldn't have imagined: a distributed information source, which is invisible to everyone, where you can access anything, and it's distributed throughout the whole world. Basically, communication is instantaneous. -Lawrence M. Krauss

Culture is this thing that exists apart from our real life but is something we all have tacitly agreed to in America. And what film and television do, particularly in this country, is lay out the characters involved in this invisible agreement and dictate who and what can participate. -John Cho

I think I'm drawn to female characters partly because they don't have as easy or as obvious a relationship to power in society, and so they suffer under social constraints or have to maneuver within them in ways men sometimes don't or are unconscious about, or have certain liberties that are invisible to them. -Todd Haynes

The fight for justice for the transgender community is largely invisible to our fellow citizens, despite the rampant systematic discrimination of trans people – those whose gender identity differs from the sex they were assigned at birth. -Chelsea Manning

I'm pretty invisible, and that's just fine. -James P. Gorman

To put it bluntly, I feel relevant and valuable, and I am struggling to understand why, when women reach age 65, they encounter an invisible barrier of perception that says it's time to walk away.

I'd go to lesbian parties. I felt like I wasn't hard enough to be butch, but I wasn't wearing heels and a skirt – I wasn't femme – so I felt like I was sort of invisible. -Dee Rees

There have been points in my life as an artist where I have wanted to capture people's attention, probably to compensate for times when I felt invisible. -Anohni

In grammar school, I didn't talk. Everybody said I was the invisible one. I'm still very shy. -Emily Kuroda

I just think that, for my particular personality, feeling slightly invisible is always a help. -Jennifer Egan

We tend to think of racism as this interpersonal verbal or physical abuse, when in truth, that is only one way that racism manifests itself. The reality of contemporary racism is that it while it is ubiquitous, it is often invisible, subsequently making it more difficult to name and identify. -Clint Smith

When they invented the Steadicam, every movie had to have a fight in a stairwell. Whenever there's a new thing, it's abused until artists realize what a Steadicam as a tool can be. And now I defy people to be able to see Steadicam shots, because we know how to do them and make them invisible. -Robert Zemeckis

I think that technological tools that filmmakers use to tell stories, in a perfect world, need to become invisible. When it's brand new and it's never been seen before and you're birthing this stuff, it's very much on people's minds. -Robert Zemeckis

American intelligence and military agencies have a huge footprint in terms of how the world works, but they're largely invisible. I'm interested in exploring those 'geographies' of secrecy from many different angles: political, legal, economic, spatial, etc., because I am fundamentally just interested in how the world works and how societies work. -Trevor Paglen

People like to say that my work is about making the invisible visible, but that's a misunderstanding. It's about showing what invisibility looks like. -Trevor Paglen

Many of the things that shape the way the world looks are, quite frankly, invisible. -Trevor Paglen

Labeling people single parents, for example, when they may in fact be co-parenting – either with an unmarried other parent in the home or with an ex-spouse in a joint custody situation – stigmatizes their children as the products of 'single parenthood' and makes the uncounted parent invisible to society. -Stephanie Coontz

For so long, the narrative – I'm speaking for Latinx – we've been invisible, the ones cleaning and taking care of your kids and doing your lawns. -Tanya Saracho

When you have used your beauty to get around, it's like having extra cash in your back pocket.

You're a brick in the building, and it's sad. -Paulina Porizkova

The benefits of freer trade, such as job creation, lower inflation, and greater consumer choice, are often invisible or only partly visible. -Richard N. Haass

What's disheartening for me and to all of us in GLAAD is when it comes to major studio films, LGBT people are basically invisible. And when we do show up, it's largely a part of comedies as carictatures to service a joke that's at the expense of the character. -Wilson Cruz

If you were to turn on the TV in 1986, '87, you wouldn't see anybody having, I guess, a low-to-middle-income person of color experience. And you definitely wouldn't have a young LGBT person or their story told. The experience of being invisible in our culture has ramifications that I don't think any of us can really understand. -Wilson Cruz

Feeling invisible definitely makes you want to become visible sometimes. -Syd

I did not know that the wounds of war are often invisible. -Mary Gauthier

We live inside our universe and cannot get a bird's-eye view of it from outside. And we cannot even see all of our universe. Distant parts of it are expanding away from us so fast that they are invisible; they go faster than the speed of light. Having bigger telescopes to see fainter stars will not help us here: invisible is truly invisible. -Jocelyn Bell Burnell

The invisible and unseen has always fascinated us humans. -Priyamvada Natarajan

The existence of dark matter and dark energy are inferred from observations! They are not theoretical constructs.

What I'm concerned with is what I would call the missing history – the invisible imprint of our stay on Earth and in time. -Svetlana Alexievich

Mental illness, unfortunately, is an invisible disease: it's not seen or heard.

The interior nature of 'Basic Black' is central to its unfolding. Shirley Kaszenbowski, regarded from the outside, is the embodiment of the invisible woman. She is in her early forties, long married, with two children. -Sarah Weinman

I was growing up and maturing at a time where we were invisible, man. We were nowhere except negative. Any time you saw a Latin person in Hollywood or on TV, they were some sort of negative character. -John Leguizamo

The great problem of humanity is life and death. Every person dreams of becoming invisible one day. -Marcel Marceau

In 'Jonaki,' it isn't about the individual actor. The actor is as important as the wall, or the water flowing down the wall, or a shadow. That kind of acting is also fascinating to me, not to be invisible necessarily, but to be in perfect synchronicity with the environment. -Jim Sarbh

I don't always like walking down the street and making sure that I smile and say hello to everybody who's walking their dog in the opposite direction. But I do do it. And it's a small, tiny thing to do. But to me, it means 'I see you. You're not invisible to me.' -Patty Griffin

In Quanzhou, I have a lot of influence from superstition. I would go to the temple with my grandmother and mother. That is why I have a lot of curiosity about the unseen force and invisible things. -Cai Guo-Qiang

The phenomenon of fame is literally invisible, but it influences and dominates your life if you aren't careful. -Penn Badgley

I've always been a very sensitive person, and people tell me that if I'm in a certain mood, and I go into a room, my mood will permeate the room. It's not on purpose – I'd rather be invisible in those moments – but I'm really bad at faking how I feel. -Rooney Mara

Bisexuality often needs an explanation. It isn't something you can often 'read' on a person, and because of that, bi people sometimes feel like an invisible part of the LGBTQIA community. -Stephanie Beatriz

Finding meaning in global mass phenomena can be difficult because the phenomena themselves are invisible, spread across the earth in millions of separate places. There is no Mount Everest of waste that we can make a pilgrimage to and behold the sobering aggregate of our discarded stuff, seeing and feeling it viscerally with our senses. -Chris Jordan

I hate it when people try to explain music. The best thing about music is that it's invisible. If you make a song and someone is like, 'Explain it,' and you explain the message, it's like – poof. It all crashes down. -Yung Lean
