Text Quotes
Good argument is intended to persuade another  (Barry Eisler Quotes) Books are my art. The movie is someone else’s art. But it’s great marketing for books.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) Psychologically, it’s always more pleasurable to blame others for our problems than it is to acknowledge our own responsibility.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) There’s an awful lot of corruption in Japanese business and politics, corruption of the sort that can make for great setting for a spy story.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) A heart beset by coronary disease will begin to recruit secondary arteries to carry oxygenated blood.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) What I care about is readers because without readers I can’t make a living... And I think it’s a bad thing for the world if people don’t read anymore. I want people to read a lot.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) I love Jet Li, but he looks very Chinese, and his English is Chinese-accented. He wouldn’t have been the right guy to play a Japanese-American.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) I read pretty eclectically - fiction, non-fiction, and poetry - and I’ve been inspired and influenced by a number of writers.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) When I was in college, I became interested in various aspects of foreign policy and international relations. Even as a kid, I was interested in what I call, loosely speaking, forbidden knowledge.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) I’m not sure why I’m so drawn to heroes who do bad things and to villains who think they’re the good guys, but I do find that moral ambiguity and conflict makes for great characters.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) The movie is someone else’s art. But it’s great marketing for books.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) I’ve loved thrillers and spy stories since I was a kid. It’s probably not a bad rule of thumb to write the kinds of stories you love to read.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) The difference between being a victim and a survivor is often a low level of situational awareness. You can’t be a super-spy, watchful and paranoid every day. But I am more watchful than the average American.  (Barry Eisler Quotes) Action fiction is driven more by what than by who. Put that ticking nuclear suitcase under Manhattan, and it’s relatively easy to create suspense. Literary fiction is driven more by who than by what  (Barry Eisler Quotes) The post office actually achieves its mission. I wish we could say the same of the CIA  (Barry Eisler Quotes) The strangest thing about the low quality of Internet argument is that effective argument isn’t really so difficult. Sure, not everyone can be Clarence Darrow, but anyone who wants to be at least competent at argument can do it  (Barry Eisler Quotes) The City. Can’t you hear it? People. Machines. Even thoughts so thick your bones feel it and your ear almost catches it  (Barry Eisler Quotes) From the outside, the CIA seems pretty exotic, but from the inside, it’s a big bureaucratic place. Think ‘post office with spies.’  (Barry Eisler Quotes) The most important guideline when it comes to argument is the golden rule. If someone were addressing your point, what tone, what overall approach would you find persuasive and want her to use? Whatever that is, do it yourself  (Barry Eisler Quotes) Publishing for me is a business, not an ideology  (Barry Eisler Quotes) I wandered the earth a mercenary, daring the gods to kill me but surviving because part of me was already dead  (Barry Eisler Quotes) The movie is someone else’s art. But it’s great marketing for books  (Barry Eisler Quotes) The job of the screenplay is to identify and extract the essence of the story from the novel and reconfigure it for the screen, maintaining its essence in a different vehicle  (Barry Eisler Quotes) It would be awesome to be so impressive that we could sway people to our way of thinking just by declaiming our thoughts, but probably most of us lack such gravitas. Luckily, theres something even better: evidence, logic, and argument  (Barry Eisler Quotes) If you focus on the risks, they’ll multiply in your mind and eventually paralyze you. You want to focus on the task, instead, on doing what needs to be done  (Barry Eisler Quotes)
