Quotes of Robert Greene:
- – “The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.”
- – “People around you, constantly under the pull of their emotions, change their ideas by the day or by the hour, depending on their mood. You must never assume that what people say or do in a particular moment is a statement of their permanent desires.”
- – “The time that leads to mastery is dependent on the intensity of our focus.”
