MetaTop Quotes From RedPill Books I've Read (self.TheRedPill)

The Rational Male by Rollo Tomassi

"It’s sex first, then relationship, not the other way around. A woman who wants to fuck you will find a way to fuck you. She will fly across the country, crawl under barbwire, climb in through your second story bedroom window, fuck the shit out of you and wait patiently inside your closet if your wife comes home early from work – women who want to fuck will find a way to fuck. The girl who tells you she needs to be comfortable and wants a relationship first is the same girl who fucked the hot guy in the foam cannon party in Cancun on spring break just half an hour after meeting him."

The Way Of The Superior Man by David Deida

"It is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart. It is also time to evolve beyond the sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine. Heart and spine must be united in a single man, and then gone beyond in the fullest expression of love and consciousness possible, which requires a deep relaxation into the infinite openness of this present moment. And this takes a new kind of guts."


The Book Of Pook by Pook

"Don't SPEND your time chasing girls, INVEST it by putting it into your interests and desires, thus the whole of your life. When you do this, all of a sudden you have what every woman wants: Ambition, charge, decisiveness, backbone, kindness, stableness, and confidence."


The Power of NOW by Eckhart Tolle

"I cannot live with myself any longer." This was the thought that kept repeating itself in my mind. Then suddenly I became aware of what a peculiar thought it was. "Am I one or two? If I cannot live with myself, there must be two of me: the 'I' and the 'self' that 'I' cannot live with."

"Maybe," I thought, "only one of them is real."


The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

"A Prince must imitate the fox and the lion, for the lion cannot protect himself from traps, and the fox cannot defend himself from wolves. One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves."


The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene

“If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. Your doubts and hesitations will infect your execution. Timidity is dangerous: Better to enter with boldness. Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity. Everyone admires the bold; no one honors the timid.”


Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

"To observe too who these are whose opinions and voices give reputation; what death is, and the fact that, if a man looks at it in itself, and by the abstractive power of reflection resolves into their parts all the things which present themselves to the imagination in it, he will then consider it to be nothing else than an operation of nature; and if any one is afraid of an operation of nature, he is a child."


The Art of War by Sun Tzu

"Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."

How to Win Friends and Influence People: "A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still."

(Never try to directly argue with someone in hopes that you'll change their opinion. They will only retaliate by holding their ideal closer to themselves. Change can only come from their own will.)

    [–]SirHammerlockI 14 points15 points  (6 children)

    Ok, so, a couple weeks ago we were doing social sciences in Psychology; conformity, obedience, locus of control, etc.

    When attempting to change an opinion you have to do two things, be consistent with your message but changing in how you present it.

    As an example, maybe NSFW, may offend some, but keep reading.

    Not long ago, homosexuality was considered a mental illness, many homosexuals were beaten up and killed for their sexual orientation. To change this view we had to A) Be consistant with the message, that homosexuality is not a mental illness, and that we should allow them to do what they wish, and B) Present it differently. To change the views of straight men, we would need a straight man to share the view that homosexuality is normal, however, if this man were to go up on stage and preach to a crowd his view he would likely be beaten up. We would then send a second man, sharing this view (Consistency), who would speak and inevitably get beaten up. If we kept going like this, mankind's view would not change. The next time we need a straight man who shares the same view (still consistent) but does not tell the crowd. Instead he could say "Im here to tell you homosexuals should have the right to come out of hiding and not be hurt, but wait, dont get me wrong, im like you, i hate them just as much as you. If they continue to stay in hiding they will eventually take our women in attempt to stay secret. This means they will pass on aids (at the time they believed aids was a 'homosexual only disease') to our women, in turn giving it to us. I dont want aids as much as any of you guys here, so stop beating them up and allow them to show themselves, for our own bennifit." (Changing how you present your views).

    Mankind needs to believe that they want to share this view before they accept it. This can also be seen in recycling in the UK, they were consistent with their message (Recycling is killing earth) but we didnt care, then they showed us how it was killing humans and animals, which made us care slightly more.

    Sorry if this strays a bit, its 2 am and i wasnt paying a whole load of attention in class (Cute psychology girls).

    Edit: words for better story telling.

    [–]krakosia 2 points3 points  (4 children)

    any theory or books which help understand the mindset to be used to tackle persuasion the way you broke it down in the example?

    [–]SirHammerlockI 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    He says check this out, its more about marketing but has the same principles.

    Influence: the power of persuasion

    By Robert b. Cialdini, PH.D.

    [–]cheeseburgercrew 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Everyone here should read this book. Every law in the book can aide TRP

    [–]krakosia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Thank you for the recommendation. I will check this book out.

    [–]SirHammerlockI 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I'll talk to my psychology teacher later today, I'll get back to you on this one.

    [–]hiphoprising 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Came from a political libertarian argument but the stands intrigued me. The guy told a homophobe "Why wouldn't you want gays off the market? Let them be open, you don't want them pretending to be straight. That just means more women for guys like us!" Flipped the argument on its head.

    [–]Kirkayak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    The sort of thing I'm thinking about may be understood by considering a case where an atheist and a theist are arguing over whether God exists. Instead of directly attacking any of the standard arguments for God's existence (ontological, teleological, etc.) the atheist might instead offer his/her take regarding the psychological reasons a human living in a godless universe might desire a God to exist, particularly during those (rather barbaric) times wherein Gods first entered written history.

    [–]JaxSwagger 72 points73 points  (22 children)

    Each and every one of those are in my foundational list, along with:

    Bachelor Pad Economics ~ Aaron Clarey

    The Way of Men ~ Jack Donovan

    FTW Self Defense ~ C. R. Jahn

    The Charisma Myth ~ Olivia Fox Cabane

    Being the Strong Man a Woman Wants ~ Elliot Katz

    The Happiness Hypothesis ~ Jonathan Haidt

    Testosterone IO ~ Cristopher Walker

    Well Fed ~ Melissa Joulwan

    These, along with OP's, are enough for any man to permanently change his life for the better.

    EDIT: Can't believe I forgot! Sex God Method ~ Daniel Rose.

    [–]EmperorAurelius 2 points3 points  (8 children)

    I'm checking out the books you mentioned. The Testosterone IO is up there in price. Have you tried it?

    [–]darkhindu 8 points9 points  (5 children)

    I have a scribd account for school stuff, so I got it.

    Thank you. Much appreciated.

    Actually it's downloading but not as a pdf.

    [–]krakosia 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    The link doesn't seem to work. Maybe upload it to dropbox or google drive?

    [–]darkhindu 12 points13 points  (2 children)

    [–]krakosia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Much appreciated. Thank you for the prompt upload.

    [–]JaxSwagger 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Yeah, it is simply the best book on the market explaining endocrine health and maximizing your T whilst minimising the downsides to high T (cortisol etc). I don't eat, sleep, walk or workout the same since I read it.

    Worth every single penny. But if you don't have those pennies then the pdf is about for a fraction of the cost on scribd...

    [–]RedWotan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I saw PDFs of Testosterone I/O and Bachelor Pad Economics, as well as an audiobook for The Happiness Hypothesis on TPB. Most of the other "red pill books" can easily be found via a simple Google search (filetype:pdf) or TPB.

    [–]ATrashMan 0 points1 point  (4 children)

    I cannot find where to purchase the testosterone io book. Please help.

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

    Does anyone have links to the PDFs handy or a public Dropbox they could share please? I'm on a mobile device in a foreign country and could do with some assistance.

    [–]BloodAwaits 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    In addition The Rational Male is just a print compilation of the "Best of Year 1" found on Rollo Tomassi's blog.

    [–]1Halfjor 53 points54 points  (27 children)

    The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli is an absolute must. I first read it when I was 15-16 and I've read in a several times since.

    It's filled with some serious realpolitik.

    “If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.”

    “Never attempt to win by force what can be won by deception.”

    “Men judge generally more by the eye than by the hand, for everyone can see and few can feel. Every one sees what you appear to be, few really know what you are.”

    “There is no other way to guard yourself against flattery than by making men understand that telling you the truth will not offend you.”

    Incredible stuff that I shamelessly utilize.

    [–]ex_astris_sci 10 points11 points  (15 children)

    “If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.”

    Where exactly do you find that you can use a tactic like that? I see how you could apply it in a highly competitive work environment (business, law) but other than that it sounds like something that could only be used during the Middle Ages. Or ghettos. Unless we look at planet earth as being a huge outer space ghetto I guess.

    [–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

    That could also be interpreted as 'Don't start something you can't finish'

    [–]tits_out_forTheBoys[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Where exactly do you find that you can use a tactic like that?

    It applies to any situation where you feel the urge to use aggressiveness. Many light injuries will gradually cause the victim to despise you. Forceful injuries, when used sparingly and with good reason, will cause the victim to fear you. In the former scenario your victim is likely to seek revenge, while in the latter scenario the victim will respect your authority.

    [–]psycho-logical 18 points19 points  (2 children)

    Let's say your boss has been stealing money from you by doing something like rounding down your hours even when you stay late when he asks you to. If you simply call him out and threaten to report him the ball is in his court. He can wait, find a valid reason to fire you and his problem is eliminated.

    Rather you should gather evidence and report his illegal actions to someone above him. Get his ass disciplined/fired and any action he now tries to take against you will almost guaranteed fall short.

    [–]ex_astris_sci 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    That's a very illuminating example and good advice I should consider more often- thanks. Nothing to do with "injury" or aggression in general, it just seems like a healthy attitude to have.

    [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Pretty much this. I work as an internet marketing vendor, and if another vendor is doing a bad job (developer, "consultant," etc.), or has my position in jeopardy - I'm not just telling on them, I'm burning them to the ground.

    You don't need to kill anyone. Plan. Act with boldness. But make sure it's fucking over for them, or else they'll get you back.

    Which translation do you recommend

    [–]1Halfjor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Mine is translated by Robert M. Adams.

    I just looked it up and it's good to see it's still in print. I got mine from my dad. It was printed in the 70's so I didn't know if you could get a hold of it.

    It's a great copy with a good foreword, annotations, and stuff like that. Some minor explanations of the translations. It's not just the bare translated text. I'd definitely recommend it.

    [–]DrunkNewb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Just bought for $3 on amazon. Thanks for the suggestion; this sounds stellar.

    [–]tubulardude -1 points0 points  (7 children)

    Isn't deception wrong though? Isn't that dishonest, cheap? Can't we "win" thought a better means- to convince others that they should do what is best for them? I'm just confused- if we are competing with someone, what line are we willing to cross to win? If we win by reason of deception, should that be "okay"? Isn't honesty the best policy? Granted, if we have private things or strategic secrets we can exercise our power to be silent, but I just feel shady about intentionally deceiving others. What's the thought process on this? Survival of the fittest?

    [–]tits_out_forTheBoys[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    "I am as only moral as the system allows"

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    First, your definition of deception needs to be expanded. 100% of Facebook users are practicing deception, because their life really isn't as rosy as that picture.

    The world sees and judges you on your outward actions - not what you feel inside.

    Also, honesty is resented as much, if not more, than it is appreciated.

    [–]tubulardude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I think facebook gets a pass because any deceptive information is self-inflicted, in that it doesn't really have any direct impact on others. I think putting your best foot forward in life is just part of trying to to your best.

    I'm thinking more about malicious deception, as in acting a certain way in order to "trick" someone into acting how you want them to- which I do think is a gray area, and VERY often pushed by 'sociopaths', etc, who kind of went down a path of dishonesty. I'm all for people looking out for themselves first, but I think that misleading others with the intent to deceive is a bad quality that catches up with you- no genuine people want to be around that.

    [–]seanmcdn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    My views on deception are much like my views on firearms. I will never run around shooting (deceiving) people, but I sure as hell will know how to use a firearm (deception). If the bad guys/girls are using it, you need to be able to use it too - and be able to use it better. If not to climb power ladders, then to at least know the signs and defend yourself.

    You could argue that actively deceiving people is morally wrong, but leaving yourself open to deception is foolish.

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    The ends justify the means. Those who have will do while those who have not are out of luck. That's just how the world works.

    [–]redpillthrower 24 points25 points  (4 children)

    "We act as mortals in all that we fear, and immortals in all that we desire"-Seneca on the shortness of life.

    Redpill in the sense its one of the most life altering books i have read.

    [–]EmperorAurelius 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    I've talking an extreme liking to the Stoics. Meditations is my favorite book of all time. I've yet to read any Seneca. Soon though.

    [–]ChadThundercockII 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    "We act as immortals in all that we fear, and mortals in all that we desire" , so this should be THE attitude ?

    [–]redpillthrower 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    The point is that we always say "we can do that tomorrow" when talking about reaching a goal or doing something we want to do (asking that hot chick out), whereas when we fear something we will usually do it immediately and without thought. The point is to live a better life by living for greatness or whatever term you want to use, rather than living a standard subpar life based on fear.

    [–]ChadThundercockII 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    A life based on fear could be great, depending on how you see fear. I fear mediocrity. This fear will always get me to give a 100% effort. Let us call it : Positive Fear.

    [–]SuperRuub 12 points13 points  (11 children)

    I dont get the sun tzu one. Im not native english, whats the difference between tactics and strategy

    [–]zulhadm 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    Strategy is what the overall plan is. Tactics are how the strategy gets carried out.

    [–]legauge 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    Tactics are short-term, Strategies are long-term.

    [–]GC0W30 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    You have to think of the long game and your goals and you have to think of the short game and the actions needed to achieve intermediate steps on the way to your long-term goals.

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Strategy is long term end goal, tactics are the minor methods you do to achieve the strategy

    [–]QraQen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Tactics is essentially like situational decision making to ameliorate your position.

    Strategy is more like long term decision making and planning and is larger in scope.

    [–]krakosia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Your long term strategy is to become a better man who is more assertive, holds his ground and stands for what he believes in. Your tactics are to read and practice things from TRP sub reddit. Read some of the books mentioned here and practice those principles daily. Go to the gym 3-4 times a week and improve your posture etc.

    [–]SDSAM21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Strategy is a broad vision for a campaign. Tactics are methods for winning individual battles.

    [–]Mudmen12 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Sweet list 1. it would be cool for this list to be expanded as the volume of material increases. 2. could you add page numbers so i can go back and re-read whilst adding context to the quote

    [–]redbluepilling 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    eBooks are great for this type of thing, even if you have the real copy. Just search for the words. (also, page numbers differ)

    [–]WindUpTerrapin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    "If women really felt oppressed by men, they would have developed hate and fear for them, as the oppressed always do, but women do not fear men, much less hate them. If they really felt humiliated by men's mental superiority, they would have used every means in their power to change the situation. If women really felt unfree, surely, at such a favorable time in their history, they would have broken free of their oppressors."

    [–]Mithra9009 1 point2 points  (5 children)

    Can someone explain the Marcus Aurelius quote to me? I couldn't make a lick of sense from it.

    It sounds like he's mocking Christians and saying that death is merely the end of your biological processing.

    [–]tyranus89 24 points25 points  (3 children)

    Not exactly. He's saying that when you contemplate death, you realize that's it's just a natural occurrence, (or as he puts it, "operation of nature"). Given that, it is silly to be afraid of death.

    Indeed, this is the essence of TRP; that truths exist independently of your desire for them to be true or untrue. This is why stoicism is so important and respected among us. Learning to live with and even embrace life's "hard truths" is much better than trying to fight against them, as it is a losing battle, or ignoring them, since that ignorance will inevitably hurt you at some point. Embracing and using these truths to your advantage is much more powerful and useful.

    [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    It's not about fighting death, it's about being afraid of it. What you shouldn't be fighting is the truth that it will eventually happen.

    [–]WarmApfelPi 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    My interpretation is don't be afraid of things you can't change. Accept and plan for them.

    Is there a list of books on the red pill lifestyle? I see books that pertain to game, but are there books that structure moreso around how to be a man?

    edit: I took a look at this thread a bit more and see that there are a lot of good books to read, while a stickied post dedicated to this would be better, there are plenty of books here, for now. Additionally, I also need help with conversational skills, I just subscribed to r/socialskills

    The Book Of Pook by Pook

    "Don't SPEND your time chasing girls, INVEST it by putting it into your interests and desires, thus the whole of your life. When you do this, all of a sudden you have what every woman wants: Ambition, charge, decisiveness, backbone, kindness, stableness, and confidence."

    Can anyone relate to this as attracting friends and people to, except women?

    [–]seanmcdn 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    This absolutely is the key to meeting good friends/people. By being completely confident in yourself with ambition and strong execution of your life goals, people will naturally be drawn to you.

    People want to associate themselves with successful individuals. Men respect you and women desire you.

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Is that always like that? comeone..

    [–]seanmcdn 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Of course not. There will always be people you simply don't get along with. But by investing in yourself you only maintain friendships/relationships that are beneficial to you and cut off the negative ones.

Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity. Everyone admires the bold; no one honors the timid.”

    Don't these two contradict one another?

    [–]ten-year-old 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Thank you for listing all of these.

    I'm a female lurker (because I like the overall 'be confident/assertive/go after what you want' mindset here; and I also am attracted to more 'traditional' men) and these types of threads are the ones I like the most.

    And thanks especially for the quotes from 'No More Mr. Nice Guy'. I'm currently going after a new job and I'm scared to do it (even though I know it's what's best), so I really needed to read 'If it scares you, do it.' tonight.

    Have you read the post by /u/redpillschool called Tits or GTFO? If not please do a search for it and read it and the comments. Here is a quote from it:

    "To be clear, you're not banned from conversation, you're banned from attention whoring.

    "I'm not trying to get extra attention, I just wanted to say that as a woman.."

    We aren't going to listen to you on sexual strategy, so dump 'em or leave"

    That was my first post in this sub, so how would I know to search out a random thread to find the rules? ('Don't say you're a woman' isn't listed on the sidebar.)

    But, I have no problem with following rules, so thanks for letting me know this is one of them. I won't do it again in the future.

    ...evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart. It is also time to evolve beyond the sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine. Heart and spine must be united in a single man...

    If this doesn't tell you that you need both alpha and beta qualities, I'm not sure what else will.

    1. Don't do anything in secret.

    I really do not understand this rule, could some who do please clarify?

    Conceal your intentions, but make sure your actions are purposeful and thus demonstrable.

    Always demonstrate, never explicate.

    If you do stuff in secret, you tend to feel guilty or ashamed about it. OTOH, if there is no reason to be ashamed about it, why not do it in the open?
