Citações Neil Strauss

„I don’t see the dark side until I open my eyes.“

—  Neil Strauss
Context: Every adventure to be had in this room is on the dark side. The people on the light side are asleep right now. And they are dreaming about the dark side. Because the more you try to repress the dark side, the stronger it gets, until it finds its own way to the surface. I sleep well. I dream of angels and sponge cake and panda bears. I don’t see the dark side until I open my eyes.

„Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall in your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it takes to get to it.“

—  Neil Strauss
Context: In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall in your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it takes to get to it. This isn't because the universe is cruel. It's because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and knows we don't appreciate things that fall into our laps.

„In order to excel at anything, there are always hurdles, obstacles, or challenges one must get past.“

—  Neil Strauss
Context: In order to excel at anything, there are always hurdles, obstacles, or challenges one must get past. It's what bodybuilders call the pain period. Those who push themselves, and are willing to face pain, exhaustion, humiliation, rejection, or worse, are the ones who become champions. The rest are left on the sidelines.

„My goal is long-term happiness. And I make choices that aren’t going to undermine that goal.“

—  Neil Strauss
Context: A lot of people make the mistake of trying to defend principles in relationships. My goal is long-term happiness. And I make choices that aren’t going to undermine that goal.

„We have this idea that love is supposed to last forever. But love isn't like that. It's a free-flowing energy that comes and goes when it pleases.“

—  Neil Strauss
Context: We have this idea that love is supposed to last forever. But love isn't like that. It's a free-flowing energy that comes and goes when it pleases. Sometimes it stays for life; other times it stays for a second, a day, a month, or a year. So don't fear love when it comes simply because it makes you vulnerable. But don't be surprised when it leaves, either. Just be glad you had the opportunity to experience it.

„A man has two primary drives in early adulthood: one toward power, success, and accomplishment; the other toward love, companionship, and sex.“

—  Neil Strauss
Context: A man has two primary drives in early adulthood: one toward power, success, and accomplishment; the other toward love, companionship, and sex. Half of life then was out of order. To go before them was to stand up as a man and admit that I was only half a man.

„What most of us present to the world isn’t necessarily our true self: It’s a combination of years of bad habits and fear-based behavior.“

—  Neil Strauss
Context: What most of us present to the world isn’t necessarily our true self: It’s a combination of years of bad habits and fear-based behavior. Our real self lies buried underneath all the insecurities and inhibitions. So rather than just being yourself, focus on discovering and permanently bringing to the surface your best self.

„Don’t mistake being fearful and weak-minded for being nice.“

—  Neil Strauss
Context: Most guys who define themselves as "too nice" only behave nicely because they want everybody to like them and don’t want anyone to think badly of them. Don’t mistake being fearful and weak-minded for being nice.

„The strong live off the weak and the clever live off the strong.“

—  Neil Strauss, The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists

„It’s not lying, it’s flirting.“

—  Neil Strauss, The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists

„After all, everyone's favorite subject is themselves.“

—  Neil Strauss, The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
