Promotion Brochure from 1974 – Side 1
URI GELLER :
“I first discovered this gift at the age of six (people then called me “The Guesser”) now after developing it I’ve begun demontrating it in public.
“At school I passed several exams through reading the answers from the best students or the teacher.
“I can learn a new language through someone who knows it by telepathy”.
“I was late today because my car was stolen and I didn’t give up till I managed to locate it by concentration”.
“Messages from peoples minds emerge in the shape of letters and impressions on a kind of screen inside me, like a TV screen”.
“It is possible for me to predict disasters like the earthquake in Peru, the kidnapped planes to Jordan etc.
My powers in fact are a by-product of inner human development and I show them in order to give a hint about the existence of the impossible.
“As far as girls are concerned, I will be able to catch them when they betray me, but only if they concentrate when they do it.”
“I believe that in a few generations, people will be able to use some of the powers I possess for general activities.”

“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“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.”
Tannens Magic Blog
“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)
Sir Elton John
“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”
