Quotes from Robert Greene & 50 Cent’s ‘The 50th Law’



This is the first Robert Greene I read and ever since I have not stopped. I enjoy the author style of writing and of course all the amazing quotes I get. Needless to say his books make you think.


“Your fears are kind of prison that confines you within limited range of action. The less you fear the more power you will have and more fully you will live.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law)



“I was born alone and I will die alone. I’ve got to do what’s right for me and not live my life the way anybody else wants it.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)




“The firmer your grasp on reality, the more power you will have to alter it for your purposes.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law)




“Every negative is a positive. The bad things that happen to me, I
somehow make them good. That means you can’t do anything to hurt me.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)




“Having supreme confidence makes you fearless and persistent, allowing you to overcome obstacles that stop most people in their tracks.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law) 




“The greatest fear people have is that of being themselves. They want to be 50 cent of someone else. They do what everyone else does even if it doesn’t fit where and who they are. But you get nowhere that way: your energy is weak and no one pays attention to you. You’re running from one thing that you own that makes you different.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)




 “Your task is to retain or rediscover those aspects of your character that defy categorization, and to give them even greater play. Remaining unique, you will create something unique and inspire the kind of respect you would never receive from tepid conformity.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law) 




“50 cent is a person I created. Soon it will be time to destroy him and
Become somebody else.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)




“Much of social prudery around the idea of power and ambition comes from an unconscious guilt and desire to keep other people down.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law) 



“The way I learned it, the kid in the school yard who doesn’t want to fight always leaves with a black eye. If you indicate you’ll do anything to avoid trouble, that’s when you get trouble.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)



“Your life must be a progression towards ownership – first mentally of your independence, and then physically of your work, owning what you produce.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law)



“When I reached the top in business, I adjusted to my new position—I became bolder and crazier than before. And I listened even less to people who tried to slow me down.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)




“Others opinions are merely helping you shape your work, not your self-image.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law)




“The public is never wrong. When people don’t respond to what you do, they’re telling you something loud and clear. You’re just not listening.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)




“People follow those who know where they are going, so cultivate an air of certainty and boldness.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law) 



“Reality is my drug. The more I have of it, the more power I get and the higher I feel.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)



“The fearless types in history inevitably display in their lives a higher tolerance than most of us for repetitive, boring tasks. This allows them to excel in their field and master their craft.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law) 



“Most people can’t handle boredom. That means they can’t stay on one thing until they get good at it. And they wonder why they’re unhappy.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)



“You must choose a career or a craft that excites you in some deep way. You are creating no dividing line between work and pleasure. Your pleasure comes in mastering the process itself, and in the mental immersion it requires.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law) 



“Your opinion of yourself becomes your reality. If you have all these Doubts, then no one will believe in you and everything will go wrong. If you think the opposite, the opposite will happen. It’s that simple.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)



“The fearless types in history learn to develop the opposite: an open spirit, a mind that is constantly learning from experience.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law) 



“When I nearly died it made me think—this can happen again any second.  I better hurry and do what I want. I started to live like I never lived before. When the fear of death is gone, then nothing can bother you and nobody can stop you.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)




“When you feel that you must work harder to get to your goal because you are not quite prepared, you are more alert and inventive. This venture has to succeed and so it will.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law) 



“People talk about my getting shot like it represented something special. They act like they’re not facing the same thing. But some day everybody has to face a bullet with his or her name on it.” ~~ 50 Cent (Book: The 50th Law)



“The greatest leaders in history all inevitably learned by experience the following lesson: it is much better to be feared and respected than to be loved.” ~~ Robert Greene (Book: The 50th Law)
