Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The goal of storytelling should be to make stories as ubiquitous as music.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “For every remote miss who becomes stronger, there are countless near misses who are crushed by what they have been through. There are times and places, however, when all of us depend on people who have been hardened by their experiences.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “What the Israelites saw, from high on the ridge, was an intimidating giant. In reality, the very thing that gave the giant his size was also the source of his greatest weakness. There is an important lesson in that for battles with all kinds of giants. The powerful and the strong are not always what they seem.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The trickster is not a trickster by nature. He is a trickster by necessity.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The first task of Blink is to convince you of a simple fact: decisions made very quickly can be every bit as good as decisions made cautiously and deliberately.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “And the Beatles didn’t recoil in horror when they were told they had to play eight hours a night, seven days a week. They jumped at the chance. Hard work is a prison sentence only if it does not have meaning.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The power of knowing, in that first two seconds, is not a gift given magically to a fortunate few. It is an ability that we can all cultivate for ourselves.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “David and Goliath is a book about what happens when ordinary people confront giants.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “But the better answer is that Hotchkiss has simply fallen into the trap that wealthy people and wealthy institutions and wealthy countries – all Goliaths – too often fall into: the school assumes that the kinds of things that wealth can buy always translate into real-world advantages.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We sometimes think of being good at mathematics as an innate ability. You either have “it” or you don’t. But to Schoenfeld, it’s not so much ability as attitude. You master mathematics if you are willing to try. That’s what Schoenfeld attempts to teach his students. Success is a function of persistence and doggedness and the willingness to work hard for twenty-two minutes to make sense of something that most people would give up on after thirty seconds.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We live in a world saturated with information. We have virtually unlimited amounts of data at our fingertips at all times, and we’re well versed in the arguments about the dangers of not knowing enough and not doing our homework. But what I have sensed is an enormous frustration with the unexpected costs of knowing too much, of being inundated with information. We have come to confuse information with understanding.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We are bad lie detectors in those situations when the person we’re judging is mismatched.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “To make sense of social epidemics, we must first understand that human communication has its own set of very unusual and counterintuitive rules.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Performance ought to improve with experience, and pressure is an obstacle that the diligent can overcome.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We normally think of the expressions on our face as the reflection of an inner state. I feel happy, so I smile. I feel sad, so I frown. Emotion goes inside-out. Emotional contagion, though, suggests that the opposite is also true. If I can make you smile, I can make you happy. If I can make you frown, I can make you sad. Emotion, in this sense, goes outside-in.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “But we need to remember that our definition of what is right is, as often as not, simply the way that people in positions of privilege close the door on those on the outside.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “What is an outlier?”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “It is those who are successful, in other words, who are most likely to be given the kinds of special opportunities that lead to further success. It’s the rich who get the biggest tax breaks. It’s the best students who get the best teaching and most attention. And it’s the biggest nine- and ten-year-olds who get the most coaching and practice. Success is the result of what sociologists like to call “accumulative advantage.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Innovators have to be open. They have to be able to imagine things that others cannot and to be willing to challenge their own preconceptions.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We have, I think, a very rigid and limited definition of what an advantage is. We think of things as helpful that actually aren’t and think of other things as unhelpful that in reality leave us stronger and wiser. Part One of David and Goliath is an attempt to explore the consequences of that error. When we see the giant, why do we automatically assume the battle is his for the winning? And what does it take to be that person who doesn’t accept the conventional order of things as a given-.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Nothing frustrates me more than someone who reads something of mine or anyone else’s and says, angrily, ‘I don’t buy it.’ Why are they angry? Good writing does not succeed or fail on the strength of its ability to persuade. It succeeds or fails on the strength of its ability to engage you, to make you think, to give you a glimpse into someone else’s head – even if in the end you conclude that someone else’s head is not a place you’d really like to be.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The power of positive thinking will overcome so many things.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “It’s the kind of wisdom that someone acquires after a lifetime of learning and watching and doing. It’s judgment And what Blink is – what all the stories and studies and arguments add up to – is an attempt to understand this magical and mysterious thing called judgment.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Modern systems, Perrow argues, are made up of thousands of parts, all of which interrelate in ways that are impossible to anticipate. Given that complexity, he says, it is almost inevitable that some combinations of minor failures will eventually amount to something catastrophic.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “What Jaffe proved was that the powerful have to worry about how others think of them-that those who give orders are acutely vulnerable to the opinions of those whom they are ordering about.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Epidemics are sensitive to the conditions and circumstances of the times and places in which they occur.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “My great-great-great-grandmother.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The “culture of honor” hypothesis says that it matters where you’re from, not just in terms of where you grew up or where your parents grew up, but in terms of where your great-grandparents and great-great-great-grandparents grew up. That is a strange and powerful fact. It’s just the beginning, though, because upon closer examination, cultural legacies turn out to be even stranger and more powerful than that.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “It’s challenging, it’s not hopeless. You have to come up with something. You have to figure out a way to help them, because people must have hope to live.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I think that the task of figuring out how to combine the best of conscious deliberation and instinctive judgment is one of the great challenges of our time.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Those immigrants, in turn, sent word back to Roseto about the promise of the New World, and soon one.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Students who attend what they considered to be their first-choice school were less likely to persist in a biomedical or behavioral science major,” they write. You think you want to go to the fanciest school you can. You don’t.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “In Steiger’s case, of course, his high connectedness is a function of his versatility as an actor and, in all likelihood, some degree of good luck. But in the case of Connectors, their ability to span many different worlds is a function of something intrinsic to their personality, some combination of curiosity, self-confidence, sociability, and energy.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “So what does correlate with brain size? The answer, Dunbar argues, is group size. If you look at any species of primate-at every variety of monkey and ape-the larger their neocortex is, the larger the average size of the groups they live with.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We overlook just how large a role we all play – and by ‘we’ I mean society – in determining who makes it and who doesn’t.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The difference between a crime of evil and a crime of illness is the difference between a sin and a symptom.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “To build a better world we need to replace the patchwork of lucky breaks and arbitrary advantages today that determine success – the fortunate birth dates and the happy accidents of history – with a society that provides opportunities for all.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “For unto everyone that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance. But from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.” – Matthew 25:29.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “In the act of tearing something apart, you lose its meaning.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Incompetence is certainty in the absence of expertise. Overconfidence is certainty in the presence of expertise.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Clear writing is universal. People talk about writing down to an audience or writing up to an audience; I think that’s nonsense. If you write in a way that is clear, transparent, and elegant, it will reach everyone.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Sometimes the best conversations between strangers allow the stranger to remain a stranger.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Success is not a function of individual talent. It’s the steady accumulation of advantages. It’s bound up in so many other broader circumstantial, environmental, historical, and cultural factors.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The Holy Fool is a truth-teller because he is an outcast. Those who are not part of existing social hierarchies are free to blurt out inconvenient truths or question things the rest of us take for granted.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Don’t depend on heaven for food, but on your own two hands carrying the load.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The first set of mistakes we make with strangers – the default to truth and the illusion of transparency – has to do with our inability to make sense of the stranger as an individual. But on top of those errors we add another, which pushes our problem with strangers into crisis. We do not understand the importance of the context in which the stranger is operating.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “You believe someone not because you have no doubts about them. Belief is not the absence of doubt. You believe someone because you don’t have enough doubts about them.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Cultural legacies are powerful forces. They have deep roots and long lives.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “That is the paradox of the epidemic: that in order to create one contagious movement, you often have to create many small movements first.”
