My Sunday – Sunday Express – November 28, 1999
November 28, 1999
Of the past eight Sundays, I’ve spent seven on aeroplanes. I could sum up my Sundays in 1999 by saying: board 18-hour flight, warn attendant to bring plastic cutlery, sit and write and meditate and write and meditate and…
But if I’m at home, Sundays are bliss. My daughter won’t be at school and my son is home from the London School of Economics, and I love to have my family around me. I walk the dogs on the towpath beside the Thames. The gardens of my home stretch down to the river and I have five dogs. The river throngs with boaters on a Sunday, and I spend an hour being greeted. I love to be recognised, it’s like having a world full of friends. My childhood was solitary; I was ostracised at school because of my strange Powers. To meet so many cheerful, smiling strangers is a constant reminder to me that our world is, at it’s heart, positive and loving.

"Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity."

"There is no spoon!"
"The world needs your amazing talents. I need them"
"The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues."
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

"The Geller Effect is one of those "para" phenomena which changed the world of phusics. What the most outstanding physicists of the last decades of this country colud grasp only as theoretical implication, Uri brought as fact into everyday life.."
Dr. Walter A. Frank. Bonn University - Germany
"Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind"
"I Have watched Uri Geller... I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again."
"Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae's in bloom"
