Robert Greene Quote: “Make your masters appear more brilliant than they are and you will attain the heights of power.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Many men are intimidated by beauty and prefer to worship it from afar; others are drawn in, but not for the purpose of conversation. The Beauty suffers from isolation.”
Robert Greene Quote: “The truth is that everything starts from the top. What determines your failure or success is your style of leadership and the chain of command that you design.”
Robert Greene Quote: “A seduction should never settle into a comfortable routine. The middle and later chapters will instruct you in the art of alternating hope and despair, pleasure and pain, until your victims weaken and succumb.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Try to persuade a person by appealing to their consciousness, by saying outright what you want, by showing all your cards, and what hope do you have? You are just one more irritation to be tuned out.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Remember: You have only so much energy and so much time. Every moment wasted on the affairs of others subtracts from your strength. You may be afraid that people will condemn you as heartless, but in the end, maintaining your independence and self-reliance will gain you more respect and place you in a position of power from which you can choose to help others on your own initiative.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Love never dies of starvation,” she wrote, “but often of indigestion.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Once envy eats away at someone, everything you do only makes it grow, and day by day it festers inside him. Eventually he will attack.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Space we can recover, time never. Napoleon Bonaparte, 1769-1821.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Learn to question yourself: Why this anger or resentment? Where does this incessant need for attention come from? Under such scrutiny, your emotions will lose their hold on you. You will begin to think for yourself instead of reacting to what others give you.”
Robert Greene Quote: “When you have success, be extra wary. When you are angry, take no action. When you are fearful, know you are going to exaggerate the dangers you face.”
Robert Greene Quote: “People’s need for validation and recognition, their need to feel important, is the best kind of weakness to exploit. First, it is almost universal; second, exploiting it is so very easy. All you have to do is find ways to make people feel better about their taste, their social standing, their intelligence.”
Robert Greene Quote: “The only way to break out of a negative dynamic is to confront it. Repressing your anger, avoiding the person threatening you, always looking to conciliate – these common strategies spell ruin. Avoidance of conflict becomes a habit, and you lose the taste for battle. Feeling guilty is pointless; it is not your fault you have enemies.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Instead of spending your time dreaming of your plan’s happy ending, you must work on calculating every possible permutation and pitfall that might emerge in it.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Hip-hop has a feeling element, it’s not just about knowing music. It’s not like classical music or jazz where you can go on raw energy.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Confidence is important, but if it is not based on a realistic appraisal of who you are, it is mere grandiosity and smugness.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Without a worthy opponent a man or group cannot grow stronger.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Concentrate on a single goal, a single task, and beat it into submission.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Everything that is rare is expensive: the more you are seen, the more you are heard, and the more ordinary you seem. If you are part of a group, step away for a while and you will be talked about more, and even admired more. Practice absence: scarcity will increase your value.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Half of your mastery of power comes from what you do NOT do, what you do not ALLOW yourself to get dragged into.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Excuses satisfy no one and apologies make everyone uncomfortable.”
Robert Greene Quote: “As a warrior in life, you must turn this dynamic around: make the thought of death something not to escape but to embrace. Your days are numbered. Will you pass them half awake and halfhearted or will you live with a sense of urgency?”
Robert Greene Quote: “By acknowledging a petty problem you give it existence and credibility. The more attention you pay an enemy, the stronger you make him; and a small mistake is often made worse and more visible when you try to fix it. It is sometimes best to leave things alone. If there is something you want but cannot have, show contempt for it. The less interest you reveal, the more superior you seem.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Because you think you have options, you never involve yourself deeply enough in one thing to do it thoroughly, and you never quite get what you want. Sometimes you need to run your ships aground, burn them, and leave yourself just one option: succeed or go down. Make the burning of your ships as real as possible – get rid of your safety net. Sometimes you have to become a little desperate to get anywhere.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Acted like a king to be treated like one.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Years later, a Japanese visitor tried to apologize to Mao for his country’s invasion of China. Mao interrupted, “Should I not thank you instead?” Without a worthy opponent, he explained, a man or group cannot grow stronger. Mao’s.”
Robert Greene Quote: “For Pericles it would be nous, the ancient Greek word for “mind” or “intelligence.” Nous is a force that permeates the universe, creating meaning and order. The human mind is naturally attracted to this order; this is the source of our intelligence. For.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Hesitation creates gaps. Boldness obliterates them.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Anger is the most destructive of emotional responses, for it clouds your vision the most.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Time is the greatest weapon you have. Patiently keep in mind a long-term goal and neither person nor army can resist you. And charm is the best way of playing for time, of widening your options in any situation. Through charm you can seduce your enemy into backing off, giving you the psychological space to plot an effective counterstrategy.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Religion is the great balm of existence because it takes us outside ourselves, connects us to something larger.”
Robert Greene Quote: “It is estimated that over 65 percent of all human communication is nonverbal but that people pick up and internalize only about 5 percent of this information.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Once envy reveals itself for what it is, the only solution is often to flee the presence of the enviers, leaving them to stew in a hell of their own creation.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Boldness... is outer directed... and makes others feel more at ease because it’s less self-conscious.”
Robert Greene Quote: “One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself. – LEONARDO DA VINCI In.”
Robert Greene Quote: “What I fear is not the enemy’s strategy but our own mistakes.”
Robert Greene Quote: “If you are not in danger,” says Sun-tzu, “do not fight.”
Robert Greene Quote: “The Laws of Human Nature, 1: Master Your Emotional Self – The Law of Irrationality.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Strategic warriors operate much differently. They think ahead toward their long-term goals, decide which fights to avoid and which are inevitable, know how to control and channel their emotions. When forced to fight, they do so with indirection and subtle maneuver, making their manipulations hard to trace. In this way they can maintain the peaceful exterior so cherished in these political times.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Never appear overly greedy for attention, then, for it signals insecurity, and insecurity drives power away. Understand that there are times when it is not in your interest to be the center of attention. When in the presence of a king or queen, for instance, or the equivalent thereof, bow and retreat to the shadows; never compete.”
Robert Greene Quote: “The only real impediment to this is yourself and your emotions – boredom, panic, frustration, insecurity. You cannot suppress such emotions – they are normal to the process and are experienced by everyone, including Masters. What you can do is have faith in the process.”
Robert Greene Quote: “If you lose contact with this inner calling, you can have some success in life, but eventually your lack of true desire catches up with you. Your work becomes mechanical. You come to live for leisure and immediate pleasures. In this way you become increasingly passive, and never move past the first phase. You may grow frustrated and depressed, never realizing that the source of it is your alienation from your own creative potential.”
Robert Greene Quote: “What you know must translate into action, and action must translate into knowledge. In this way strategy becomes a lifelong challenge and the source of constant pleasure in surmounting difficulties and solving problems.”
Robert Greene Quote: “If we keep practicing, we gain fluency; basic skills are mastered, allowing us to take on newer and more exciting challenges.”
Robert Greene Quote: “On the internet, it is easy to find studies that support both sides of an argument. In general, you should never accept the validity of people’s ideas because they have supplied “evidence.” Instead, examine the evidence yourself in the cold light of day, with as much skepticism as you can muster. Your first impulse should always be to find the evidence that disconfirms your most cherished beliefs and those of others. That is true science.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Thy breath is like the steame of apple-pyes.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Warriors focus on what they do have, the strengths that they do possess and that they must use creatively. Knowing when to slow down, to renew, to retrench, they outlast their opponents. They play for the long term.”
Robert Greene Quote: “You cannot spend your life worrying about the petty feelings of others.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Never pick a fight with someone you’re not sure you can defeat.”
Robert Greene Quote: “Be like vapor. Do not give your opponents anything solid to attack; watch as they exhaust themselves pursuing you, trying to cope with your elusiveness. Only formlessness allows you to truly surprise your enemies – by the time they figure out where you are and what you are up to, it is too late.”
