Teller's quotes

  • When a magician lets you notice something on your own, his lie becomes impenetrable.
  • Nothing fools you better than the lie you tell yourself.
  • If you do something that you're proud of, that someone else understands, that is a thing of beauty that wasn't there before - you can't beat that.
  • I'm a lazy sod.
  • Sometimes, magic is just someone spending more time on something than anyone else might reasonably expect.
  • I'm more apt to cry at something beautiful than at something sad.
  • Doing beautiful things is its own reward.
  • Magic is an art form where you lie and tell people you are lying.
  • Generally, magicians don't know what to say, so they say stupid and redundant crap like,'Here I am holding a red ball.'
  • Magicians have done controlled testing in human perception for thousands of years.
  • As a kid, I was a Hitchcock lover; I cared about the dark side of things.
  • Nobody who is a Penn & Teller fan thinks of us first and foremost as magicians, but as a comedy team.
  • Neuroscientists are novices at deception.
  • I always assumed I'd spend my life happily performing in artsy-fartsy little theaters.
  • Comedically, unpleasantness is great fun.
  • Reality seems so simple. We just open our eyes and there it is. But that doesn't mean it is simple.
  • Given my absolute druthers, I would certainly like to see that every part of my body is used for spare parts for science.
  • I believe in art.
  • Magic's about understanding - and then manipulating - how viewers digest the sensory information.
  • Onstage, I find absolutely nothing but exhilaration in not talking.
  • If there isn't at least the threat of violence in art, it tends to be kind of tiresome.
  • If you read Shakespeare's stage directions, all the gore and violence is right in there.
  • In America, magic has never been an important part of peoples' lives.
  • The silent thing onstage allows for a kind of intimacy that no conversation can have. If I just shut up, we're forced to look at each other and really confront that moment.
  • People do not come to a Penn & Teller show to see a magic show. They just don't. They come to see weird stuff that they can see no place else, that will make them laugh and make the little hairs stand up on the backs of their necks.
  • The place we want to explore unpleasantness in the real world is in art.
  • The Boy Scouts of America is no longer entirely what people think it is. Essentially, it has been hijacked by religious conservatives.
  • Every time you perform a magic trick, you're engaging in experimental psychology. If the audience asks, 'How the hell did he do that?' then the experiment was successful.
  • People take reality for granted.
  • To most people who have a point of view, merely being on TV is an intrinsic good.
