Text Quotes
The portal into people’s hearts is being interested in them  (Peter Guber Quotes) Good storytelling is harder than it sounds, but the easy part is that everyone has the ability to do it. ...Tap into it.  (Peter Guber Quotes) There’s a sense of aliveness that comes from connection, shared experience. And you see it in every place. You see it when ball players jump up and down, gather at home plate, hugging, and it’s not just because they’re winning, it’s that shared moment, that feeling of - we enter the world alone, we leave alone  (Peter Guber Quotes) Social cohesion was built into language long before Facebook and LinkedIn and Twitter - we’re tribal by nature. Tribes today aren’t the same as tribes thousand of years ago: It isn’t just religious tribes or ethnic tribes now: It’s sports fans, it’s communities, it’s geography  (Peter Guber Quotes) At Casablanca we did ‘Midnight Express,’ ‘Flashdance,’ and ‘The Deep.’ My willingness for risk has always been my strength  (Peter Guber Quotes) Every journey that is successful has culs-de-sac and speed bumps. I carry a wisdom gene through my life through the good, the bad, and the ugly  (Peter Guber Quotes) A gun can be dangerous. But a gun can protect you, you can hunt for food with it - you know, the tool itself is a tool. The intention of the party using the tool is a part of the process, right? You know: the knife cuts the steak, stabs the person, saves somebody from danger, cuts somebody out of a car  (Peter Guber Quotes) In any situation that calls for you to persuade, convince or manage someone or a group of people to do something, the ability to tell a purposeful story will be your secret sauce. Telling to win through purposeful stories is situation, industry, gender, demographic, and psychographic-agnostic. It’s an all-purpose, everyone wins tool  (Peter Guber Quotes) My mom used to tell me stories at night, read books to me - and I read ‘em over and over and over again. And you know what I learned from that? I went back and looked at everything - Why do I like reading the same stories over and over and over again? What, was I some kind of nincompoop? No - the narrative gave me connection with my mom  (Peter Guber Quotes) We tend to become social core groups, whatever our similar interest and background where we came through. It tends to be a filter through which people see themselves. It can be all different ethnicities. They can see themselves as San Franciscans, or Warriors fans. You want to build a tribe of viral advocates for that team.  (Peter Guber Quotes) The minute you start the process of deciding to make a film and you’re communicating that vision to anyone, you’re in the process of selling. If you don’t understand that, you’re not in show business. You’re just not.  (Peter Guber Quotes) The seminal elements of what makes a story great - challenge, struggle, resolution - are the same whether we’re talking about story content for a movie such as ‘Rain Man,’ or telling a purposeful story to forge new business relationships or conclude a fruitful transaction, such as acquiring an NBA franchise.  (Peter Guber Quotes) So when you tell a joke, you want to make someone laugh, or if you tell a story about someone who had a heart attack, it may be because you want the listener to exercise. Stories are tools to create social cohesion and to get humans to strategize together.  (Peter Guber Quotes) Think about all the great leaders. Think about Obama. Think about Clinton. Think about Nelson Mandela. Think about all the people that we know who are very successful in business, in politics and religion. What are they? They tell purposeful stories. They move people to action by aiming at the heart  (Peter Guber Quotes) Nothing drew me to the film business. I was propelled by the fear and anxiety of Vietnam. I had been drafted into the Marines. My brother was already serving in Vietnam. I bought, if you will, a stay of execution - both literally and figuratively - and went on to graduate school of business from the law school that I was attending  (Peter Guber Quotes) I’ve worked with Jack Warner and Jimmy Stewart - and Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Johnny Depp twice. I’ve had dinners with Fred Astaire and Cary Grant  (Peter Guber Quotes) I think any new technology that helps connect and create social cohesion is great. But at the end of the day, you and I are analog creatures. We have to take ‘oohs and aahs’ and convert them to 0s and 1s and then convert them back to ‘oohs and aahs.’ Narratives that work in social networks are the exchange of stories that are told well  (Peter Guber Quotes) Truth is a point of view, but authenticity can’t be faked  (Peter Guber Quotes) The portal into people’s hearts is being interested in them  (Peter Guber Quotes) Stories aren’t the icing on the cake; they are the cake!  (Peter Guber Quotes) There are no rules, but you break them at your peril  (Peter Guber Quotes) Good storytelling is harder than it sounds, but the easy part is that everyone has the ability to do it... Tap into it  (Peter Guber Quotes) Today everyone, whether they know it or not, is in the emotional transportation business. More and more, success is won by creating compelling stories that have the power to move people to action. Simply put, if you can’t tell it, you can’t sell it  (Peter Guber Quotes) Miss the audience’s heart as a filmmaker, and the only wallet that gets hit will be your own. That’s because the heart is always the first target in story telling  (Peter Guber Quotes) The arts tend to be more liberal. There tends to be more social relevance in the arts  (Peter Guber Quotes) Are you motivated? Are you coherent? Is your intention aligned? Are your feet, tongue, heart and wallet congruent? That intention shines through  (Peter Guber Quotes) Beside every great success are the seeds of enormous failure. In every failure, there’s the opportunity seeds of great success. They’re not miles apart. So if they’re that close together, and if you’re really working, you’re always gonna have that likelihood that something’s not going to work  (Peter Guber Quotes) People love to be swept off their feet, to go into an environment where they’ve never been, to experience things they only dream about. And filmmaking offers that potential  (Peter Guber Quotes) Language is a more recent technology. Your body language, your eyes, your energy will come through to your audience before you even start speaking  (Peter Guber Quotes)
