Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We would all be sitting in our deck chairs in the backyard, and we would look up, and all of a sudden, the Air House – or maybe even some specific part of the Air House – would be gone.

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We pretend that success is exclusively a matter of individual merit. But there’s nothing in any of the histories we’ve looked at so far to suggest things are that simple. These are stories, instead, about people who were given a special opportunity to work really hard and seized it, and who happened to come of age at a time when that extraordinary effort was rewarded by the rest of society. Their success was not just of their own making. It was a product of the world in which they grew up.”

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Contagiousness is an unexpected property of all kinds of things.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Just think about how many times you have criticized someone else, in hindsight, for their failure to spot a liar. You should have known. There were all kinds of red flags. You had doubts. Levine would say that’s the wrong way to think about the problem. The right question is: were there enough red flags to push you over the threshold of belief? If there weren’t, then by defaulting to truth you were only being human.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The Band-Aid is an inexpensive, convenient, and remarkably versatile solution to an astonishing array of problems.”

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The sense of possibility so necessary for success comes not just from inside us or from our parents. It comes from our time: from the particular opportunities that our particular place in history presents us with.

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Visionaries are limited by their visions.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Historians start with Cleopatra and the pharaohs and comb through every year in human history ever since, looking in every corner of the world for evidence of extraordinary wealth, and almost 20 percent of the names they end up with come from a single generation in a single country.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I’m someone who can provide an intellectual framework, but I can’t tell people who are trying to sell Product X how to do that because I don’t know, and I would be faking it if I attempted to step into that role.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “University of Oklahoma. He spent his summers on a farm in Pennsylvania, not far from Roseto – although that, of course, didn’t mean much, since Roseto.”

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “But what actually matters are the hundreds of small things that the powerful do – or don’t do – to establish their legitimacy, like sleeping in the bed of an innocent man you just shot accidentally and scattering your belongings around his house.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “There is actually a significant scientific literature measuring Asian “persistence.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “In reality, the very thing that gave the giant his size was also the source of his greatest weakness.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Louis and Regina found a tiny apartment on Eldridge Street, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, for $8 a month. Louis then took to the streets, looking for work.

He went.”
