What People Say
Whatever you did worked. I just sent this picture to George.
My Dad (who has passed) his watch hasn't worked for 30 years. You got it ticking.
I've been messing with it since then, and I absolutely cannot get it ticking again. You're amazing!
Here's what I sent to George.
I swear I am not lying. This gold watch from my dad hasn't worked for 30 years.
I joined with you and Uri and yelled Work! Work! Work!
And the damned little bastard started ticking!
It stopped after we all quit yelling at it, but the fact that it happened at all is pretty crazy.
Shows what you can do with intention, right?
Keep rocking, George. I listen to you every night/morning/whatever.
That was crazy.
The Creative mind of Uri Geller has significantly advanced the world of mentalism. No matter what your opinion may be concerning Mr. Geller's career, there is no question as to the magnitude of his impact on the field.
"Uri Geller is a hard one to take because what he presents to modern science and the common man is at first unbelievable. Yet, after knowing him very closely for nearly five years, I have observed his unusual energy in person in many countries. These have not been lab conditions... they did not have to be. Whether it was glass shattering spontaneously at hand, or an exact telepathic rendering of my day done over international phone wires; I have come to appreciate what part is showmanship; and what part is, quite literally, real.Modern science must know that when Einstein split the atom that the mysteries therein would confound common notion. Uri presents the same type of mystery. Harboring an energy that seems to pervade existence, yet is difficult to harness, Uri has withstood the naysayers and the abusive critics. It is not a matter of talent that keeps him alive. Uri has a life situation, that not many people can appreciate unless they experience it first hand. With a magician's eye for deceit I watched Uri in the first several years of knowing him. Not only did I find him earnest in his beliefs, but a loving husband, father, and a man of elegance, style and generosity. His psychic gifts are genuine and he provides a model for humanity at large to aspire to."
Ben Robinson (Winner of Milbourne Christopher Foundation Award, Society of American Magicians Leslie R. Guest Award, and author of legendary book, Twelve Have Died - U.S.A.)
"Uri Geller is a superb showman, in fact that is what Gellerism is all about. There is no gimmicked apparatus involved, just pure showmanship that proves successful under nearly all conditions." Ben Harris (Magician and author of Gellerism Revealed - Australia)
Many of those who rose to fame in the Seventies and early Eighties have since disappeared from public life, or, at any rate, fallen off the radar. But there are others who have kept going against all the odds. Uri Geller is a good example.
Craig Brown For The Daily Mail
The Duke (Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh) suggested many possible explanations for the miracle, including a Uri Geller type explanation, and he produced a spoon which Uri Geller had bent for him. To my rescue came that still small voice of calm from Her Majesty the Queen, saying: 'Philip and his theories…'

I particularly want to thank Uri Geller for being so honest. Who would have thought that he started his career when drinking soup at the age of four? Who would have thought that he was once a male model? And to send a woman Prime Minister to the loo and to be commended by her. We had a woman Prime Minister who referred to me as "That perfectly dreadful man in Birmingham." How different from Israel! What moved me most about this very interesting book was that when Uri Geller used his psi ability for self-aggrandisement, it nearly sent him around the bend. He spoke about his fear of committing suicide. This is a gift of God. Now he uses it to help others, including at a children's hospital. That is surely the best use. I am very grateful to him for making that point and for explaining how the extraordinary powers that some people have, but most do not, can be used. We have all heard Uri Geller. No doubt we have all seen him on television. But to see him in the flesh and to hear him speak so honestly about his life has been an experience for all of us.

I don't understand how you do what you do!
Pioneer of the computer and the internet, Robert Taylor.
I was in Scientific laboratories at Stanford Research Institute investigating a rather amazing individual Uri Geller. Uri's ability to perform amazing feats of mental wizardry is known the world over. We in Science are just now catching up and understanding what you can do with exercise and proper practise.Uri is Not a magician. He is using capabilities that we all have and can develop with exercise and practice. After the Geller work, I was asked to brief the director of the CIA, Ambassador George Bush (Later to become President of the United States), on our activities and the results.

We feel that if similar tests are made later, enough instances of this kind will probably accumulate, so that there will be no room for reasonable doubt that some new process is involved here, which cannot be accounted for or explained in terms of the present known laws of physics. Indeed, we already feel that we have gone some distance toward this point.
