Whoever would have guessed that in the land of cheap sausages and mashed potatoes there could be such a change which would actually bring the French from Paris every weekend to invade Britain en masse to eat great food and drink great wine.— Robin Leach
The most romantic Robin Leach quotes that will inspire your inner self
It is usually people in the money business, finance, and international trade that are really rich.
Travel is very subjective. What one person loves, another loathes.
Travel is very subjective. What one person loves, another loathes. I would say a private paradise in the Caribbean. If you want culture and class, I would say Tuscany. If you want exotic, I would say Bangkok, Thailand.
Television has certainly become a wasteland of quality programming.
You can't reward people who don't want to work with more money than they would make while they were working.
Never give up if you really want something, keep plugging away at it and your dreams can come true.
Everything in television is dumbing down even further and it won't stop until somebody dies.
You know, I run the Vegas Deluxe website and that really is 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And we have more stars going through this city with shows. We have more disc jockeys playing in nightclubs here, we have more parties, more of everything than any other city in the world. So it's non-stop.
The path that we are headed on economically in America is one that leads to total ruination of the American system.
I'm disappointed in television. I'm disappointed first of all in the audience that will not let stories be told in longer form.
I like to see things start, grow, and then move on to better things.
I built the ideal house down in the Caribbean.
All Englishmen dream of leaving the rain of England and getting a place in the sun - out in the grounds with separate guest houses; that is the ideal scenario.
Nobody would watch Lifestyles of the Poor and the Unknown.
I am a creator of TV shows. 'Lifestyle' ran for 14 years... that was pleasurable. We also had 'Runaway' for eight years. We did two years of a show called 'The Start of Something Big', and we did a network series called 'Fame, Fortune and Romance.'
They say that art comes from the soul.
The more drama in an artist's life, the more he can draw on for his art. Van Gogh and Picasso had troubled souls, but poor Steve Kaufman has been shot once, stabbed 3 times - all by women. That is a lot of drama for great art.
I'm convinced that if the same opportunities were made available to everybody, people would want to better their lot in life.
There are some people who get money just because they've got large families.
So if it pays to make large families and earn more money than you would earn out at work, why not have more families, larger families? That's wrong.
People are living such miserable lives economically.
They want the escape. They want the fantasy. They'd love the dream of being king for a day or queen for a day.
It's tragic what America has become because there is a great segment of society that now resents luxury and success and achievement by others.
If we can make America great again and if we can get everybody working and bettering their lot in life, then this becomes the great country that it once was, that it's ceased to be.
When I interview people, and they give me an immediate answer, they're often not thinking. So I'm silent. I wait. Because they think they have to keep answering. And it's the second train of thought that's the better answer.
So, you're seeing the Rolls-Royces and the Bentley's still selling for big prices. You're seeing jewelry still selling, art works at auction. There was a diamond that sold for I think 38 million, 48 million, something like that just a week ago. So prices are back up to their highs, getting stronger and more and more people seem to have more and more money to spend.
The system is wrong where it rewards the lack of interest in work with money, so you don't have to work.
I'm not a politician. I don't pretend to be a politician. I'm an independent.
These days I'm headquartered out of Las Vegas, which is what I consider and the world considers to be the entertainment capital of the globe. It's been interesting because I've seen the rise of Vegas and in recent years I've seen the fall of Vegas. It's now interesting to take a look at it as it begins its bounce back again.
It's the reason why so many people left Britain like I did in the mid 60s because Britain was exactly the same then as America is today, getting ready to redistribute social wealth and it didn't work. You've seen that in places like Greece, Portugal, Iceland, Ireland where the entire country's business has collapsed, gone bankrupt. That's where America is heading.
Celebrities are nowhere as rich as some people think they are.
I would never go back to doing the show again.
I mean, every day I think about Lifestyles because somebody comes up to me and tells me how much they love the show and I should bring it back, but this is not the time to bring it back. I don't think it would be as successful today as it once was.
