Many cognitive psychologists see the brain as a computer. But every single brain is absolutely individual, both in its development and in the way it encounters the world.
I accepted the interviews and encounters that had to be held with the media, but I would have preferred to work in peace.
I loved being in Close Encounters, just to watch Steven Spielberg working was exciting.
Pleasant it to behold great encounters of warfare arrayed over the plains, with no part of yours in peril.
Years later, nothing makes me more grateful as a parent than my daughters' encounters with classroom wizards.
The idea of close encounters of the zero'th kind - which is to say, not a close encounter at all, but simply uncovering evidence that someone's out there - dates back to the Victorian era.
I think everybody encounters difficulty. It's just more pitched in some people.
A priest encounters temptation every day, and some of that desire is very natural.
Texas is a country in its own. It's made up of half Mexico/half United States but completed mixed. I don't mean to draw a generalization but it is a place, a territory, that's really made up of all these encounters, you know?
Gael Garcia Bernal
My favorite sci-fi movie of all time is 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind.'
Well, in The Chosen, Danny Saunders, from the heart of his religious reading of the world, encounters an element in the very heart of the secular readings of the world - Freudian psychoanalytic theory.
I was raised in a heavily Catholic family. Early and consistent encounters with mysticism.
Nevertheless, whether in occurrences lasting days, hours or mere minutes at a time, I have experienced happiness often, and have had brief encounters with it in my later years, even in old age.

I've been diving for about 30 years, and I can honestly say that I've had some amazing encounters with sharks, squids, and other whales. But the encounter with the right whales in the Auckland Islands was probably the best thing I've ever done. It was just that amazing.
I've had encounters with animals that have been really mystical. I've always been really into animals. But the way they appear in the paintings, they come from my mind's eye more than: 'I'm gonna draw a dog now.' It isn't thought out: 'Now I'm gonna draw a bird.' They just appear.
When I was a child, I thought I was going to be a paleontologist because I loved dinosaurs.

'Close Encounters of the Third Kind.' Big, big, big smash for me. My birth of the love of cinema was born with 'Close Encounters' and '2001.' Those sci-fi movies I saw when I was a little kid.
'Confessions of a Video Vixen' is not a book about my encounters with celebrities, or anyone else for that matter. It is my life story, thus far, which just so happens to include some people you may have heard of.
