  36. You want attention, you want to grab some of that airspace that exists out there in a world that’s very difficult to get it because it’s so competitive and to get it for more than a few seconds.

  44. It’s good to have a brand that is consistent that people know about and trust. But it’s also good to mix it up and adapt it, to polish it a bit and give it a new aspect.

In reality, Cleopatra was physically unexceptional and had no political power, yet both Caesar and Antony, brave and clever men, saw none of this. What they saw was a woman who constantly transformed herself before their eyes, a one-woman spectacle.Her dress and makeup changed from day to day, but always gave her a heightened, goddesslike appearance. Her words could be banal enough, but were spoken so sweetly that listeners would find themselves remembering not what she said but how she said it. ~ Robert Greene

  19. If you are worried about what others might think and about how your position in the group might be jeopardized, then you will never really create anything. ~ Robert Greene

  20. We must create our own world or we will die from inaction ~ Robert Greene

  21. Most people are perpetually locked in the present. Their decisions are overly influenced by the most immediate event; they easily become emotional and ascribe greater significance to a problem than it should have in reality. ~ Robert Greene

  22. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and what seems bad at first might in fact be something of a blessing. ~ Robert Greene

  23. The ideas get under your skin. I am honored and deeply excited by the thought that the next generation of writers, or whomever, are influenced by these books. ~ Robert Greene

  24. The key to success in any kind of start up is your level of persistence. It’s not so much your intellect. The Zuckerburg’s, Pages and Brins, that succeed have such a level of belief in what they are doing that they will put up with the kind of crap that most people won’t put up with, they are incredibly persistent and resilient. ~ Robert Greene

  25. Hip-hop, you can’t really do that when you’re in your 50s. ~ Robert Greene

  26. Her lips are roses over-washed with dew, Or like the purple of Narcissus’ flower; No frost their fair, no wind doth waste their power, But by her breath her beauties to renew. ~ Robert Greene

  27. I’ve always loved black culture; I don’t know any other way to put it. Since I was a kid I loved music and early jazz, Sly and the Family Stone. ~ Robert Greene

  28. Religion humanizes this universe, makes us feel important and loved. We are not animals governed by uncontrollable drives, animals that die for no apparent reason, but creatures made in the image of supreme being ~ Robert Greene

  29. The conventional mind is passive – it consumes information and regurgitates it in familiar forms. The dimensional mind is active, transforming everything it digests into something new and original, creating instead of consuming. ~ Robert Greene

  30. Actually, your past successes are your biggest obstacle: every battle, every war, is different, and you cannot assume that what worked before will work today. ~ Robert Greene

  31. If you want to be powerful in life you have to enjoy the process. You have to get pleasure out of making the thing that you’re making. There has to be that kind of purpose behind it. If your purpose is simply gaining power, if that becomes your end in life then you end up sort of destroying yourself because you lose the sense of detachment that’s very necessary. ~ Robert Greene

  32. With such a deep rooted interest you can withstand the setbacks and failures, the days of drudgery, and the hard work that are always a part of any creative action. You can ignore the doubters and critics. You will then feel personally committed to solving the problem and will not rest until you do so. ~ Robert Greene

  33. Grand strategy is the art of looking beyond the present battle and calculating ahead. Focus on your ultimate goal and plot to reach it. ~ Robert Greene

  34. When you have any kind of success in life, that’s like the most dangerous moment that you’re in because you’re going to tend to think wow, I can just keep repeating what I’ve done. I’m a great person. People love me. All of the sudden they’re giving me all of this attention. You get drunk on it and you lose your sense of balance and your sense of detachment. I know it’s happened to me. ~ Robert Greene

  35. The truth is that creative activity is one that involves the entire self – our emotions, our levels of energy, our characters, and our minds. ~ Robert Greene

More Inspirational Quotes of Robert Greene :

  1. Nobody is born without fear. We are all born into this world screaming and crying, a bloody mess. We’re afraid of failing. What differentiates people is that some of them tend to deal more with fearful situations and understand that it’s hurting them in life. That by becoming fearful they’re maiming themselves and they learn to move past these fears. ~ Robert Greene

  2. Animals behave in set patterns, which is why we are able to hunt and kill them. Only man has the capacity to consciously alter his behavior, to improvise and overcome the weight of routine and habit. ~ Robert Greene

  3. Mastery is not a function of I.Q. or natural talent or wealthy parents who can send you to the best school, but rather the result of going through a learning process, fueled by the desire to grow and the persistence to push past any obstacles. ~ Robert Greene

  4. We happen to live in an era that is incredibly wrapped up in notions of political correctness; everything is seen through the lens of politics. But being political and politically correct is just another way of fighting, another form of power and strategy, an insidious means of manipulation. ~ Robert Greene

  5. We’re selfish to some degree, that’s not a criticism and it doesn’t mean that we are all narcissists. But in any situation our minds naturally evolve to what’s in it for me? How does this affect me? Can this benefit me? Can this harm me? Then we might move on from that and have a more altruistic point of view about things but that’s almost always our initial response. ~ Robert Greene

  6. One of the things I’ve been talking about with my critical writing and my own work is that these movies are seen differently in a theatrical space. It’s very important to me. I edit films to be seen theatrically, like fiction material I’ve worked on like Listen Up Phillip or other documentaries. ~ Robert Greene

  7. Ah Franion, treason is loved of many, but the Traitor hated of all: unjust offences may for a time escape without danger, but never without revenge. ~ Robert Greene

  8. A few years ago, for my birthday, Sean Price Williams said, “I’ll give you one free day of shooting.” He shot Kati with an I and co-shot Fake It So Real. While we’ve always worked together, I didn’t want him to do it for free, so he cashed in his birthday chip and came for this one day. ~ Robert Greene

  9. Desire is both imitative (we like what others like) and competitive (we want to take away from others what they have). As children, we wanted to monopolize the attention of a parent, to draw it away from other siblings. This sense of rivalry… makes people compete for the attention. ~ Robert Greene

  10. Trouble can often be traced to a single strong individual — the stirrer, the arrogant underling, the poisoner of goodwill. If you allow such people room to operate, others will succumb to their influence. Do not wait for the troubles they cause to multiply, do not try to negotiate with them — they are irredeemable. Neutralize their influence by isolating or banishing them. Strike at the source of the trouble and the sheep will scatter. ~ Robert Greene

  11. Being the free woman who is sexy and out there is a performance in a way, and being the stay-at-home mom and wife is a performance in itself. All of those performances are living and force you to make decisions about who you really are. Women have to put those performances ahead of things sometimes. Men aren’t perceived in the same way. ~ Robert Greene

  12. All great leaders since Moses have known that a feared enemy must be crushed completely. (Sometimes they have learned this the hard way.) If one ember is left alight, no matter how dimly it smolders, a fire will eventually break out. More is lost through stopping halfway than through total annihilation: The enemy will recover, and will seek revenge. Crush him, not only in body but in spirit. ~ Robert Greene

  13. Strike the shepherd and the sheep will scatter ~ Robert Greene

  14. If I could simplify the whole game of power and strategy in one equation, it would all hinge on the capacity to see events around you exactly as they are. The closer your mind is to reality, the better your strategies, your responses in life. ~ Robert Greene

  15. When you show yourself to the world and display your talents, you naturally stir all kinds of resentment, envy, and other manifestations of insecurity… you cannot spend your life worrying about the petty feelings of others ~ Robert Greene

  16. If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. Your doubts and hesitations will infect your execution. Timidity is dangerous: Better to enter with boldness. Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity. Everyone admires the bold; no one honors the timid. ~ Robert Greene

  17. Few are born bold. Even Napoleon had to cultivate the habit on the battlefield, where he knew it was a matter of life and death. In social settings he was awkward and timid, but he overcame this and practice boldness in every part of his life because he saw its tremendous power, how it could literally enlarge a man(even one who, like Napoleon, was in fact conspicuously small). ~ Robert Greene

  18. In a society where the roles everyone plays are obvious, the refusal to conform to any standard will excite interest. Be both masculine and feminine, impudent and charming, subtle and outrageous. Let other people worry about being socially acceptable; those types are a dime a dozen, and you are after a power greater than they can imagine. ~ Robert Greene

  19. Mastery is not a question of genetics of luck, but of following your natural inclinations and the deep desires that stirs you from within. ~ Robert Greene

  20. Keep your friends for friendship, but work with the skilled and competent ~ Robert Greene

  21. You cannot make anything worthwhile in this world unless you have first developed and transformed yourself. ~ Robert Greene

  22. Understand: A person of power instills a kind of fear by deliberately unsettling those around him to keep the initative on his side. ~ Robert Greene

  23. Any momentary triumph you think you have gained through argument is really a Pyrrhic victory. The resentment and ill will you stir up is stronger and lasts longer than any momentary change of opinion. It is much more powerful to get others to agree with you through your actions, without saying a word. Demonstrate, do not explicate. ~ Robert Greene

  24. Be wary of friends—they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them. ~ Robert Greene

  25. Become who you are by learning who you are. ~ Robert Greene

  26. Everything is judged by its appearance; what is unseen counts for nothing. Never let yourself get lost in the crowd, then, or buried in oblivion. Stand out. Be conspicuous, at all cost. Make yourself a magnet of attention by appearing larger, more colorful, more mysterious than the bland and timid masses. ~ Robert Greene

  27. Never whine, never complain, never try to justify yourself. ~ Robert Greene

  28. When people are too present, too familiar or too in our face, something happens to us psychologically. We begin to tune them out, we begin to get sick of them, we begin to know them so well and become so familiar with who they are that we loose a bit of respect for them. You pass a certain threshold with the fact that you’re too present in their lives, too much in their face and once that threshold is passed you’re never going to repair it they have lost a certain respect for you. ~ Robert Greene

  29. The world wants to assign you a role in life. And once you accept that role you are doomed. ~ Robert Greene

  30. Even if it’s a “talking head documentary” about a social movement or something along those lines, I’ve always thought of editing the timing and the sense of the piece for the theatrical experience. ~ Robert Greene

  31. If you make a show of going against the times, flaunting your unconventional ideas and unorthodox way, people will think that you only want attention and that you look down upon them.They will find away to punish you for making them feel inferior. It is far safer to blend in and nurture the common touch. Share your originality only with tolerant friends and those who are sure to appreciate your uniqueness. ~ Robert Greene

  32. When our emotions are engaged, we often have trouble seeing things as they are. ~ Robert Greene

  33. Win through your actions, never through argument. ~ Robert Greene

  34. If you’re just letting the time pass at your job, it’s just dead time and you’ll never get it back. If at that job you’re learning and you’re observing and you’re seeing about people and connections, it’s suddenly alive time. ~ Robert Greene

  35. If we experience any failures or setbacks, we do not forget them because they offend our self-esteem. Instead we reflect on them deeply, trying to figure out what went wrong and discern whether there are any patterns to our mistakes. ~ Robert Greene

  36. There is something I call social intelligence. You can do a lot in life on your own and you can do all kinds of stuff, but if you’re really bad with people, if you’re really naive or aggressive and push people away, if you don’t know the political environment you’re in, it invalidates all the things you know. You’re not going to get anywhere. ~ Robert Greene

  37. Only create associations with positive affinities. Make this a rule of life and you will benefit more than from all the therapy in the world. ~ Robert Greene

  38. The Crown. Place it upon your head and you assume a different post-tranquil yet radiating assurance. Never show doubt, never lose your dignity beneath the crown, or it will not fit. It will seem to be destined for one more worthy. Do not wait for a coronation; the greatest emporers crown themselves. ~ Robert Greene

  39. Those qualities that separate us are often ridiculed by others or criticized by teachers. Because of these judgments, we might see our strengths as disabilities and try to work around them in order to fit in. But anything that is peculiar to our makeup is precisely what we must pay the deepest attention to and lean on in our rise to mastery. ~ Robert Greene

  40. No moment is wasted if you pay attention and learn the lessons contained in every experience. ~ Robert Greene

  41. Lord, protect me from my friends; I can take care of my enemies. ~ Robert Greene

  42. Do not accept the roles that society foists on you. Re-create yourself by forging a new identity, one that commands attention and never bores the audience. Be the master of your own image rather than letting others define if for you. Incorporate dramatic devices into your public gestures and actions – your power will be enhanced and your character will seem larger than life. ~ Robert Greene

  43. Life goes by very fast. And the worst thing in life that you can have is a job that you hate, that you have no energy in, that you’re not creative with and you’re not thinking of the future. To me, might as well be dead. ~ Robert Greene
