“The first rule of Fight Club is: You do not talk about Fight Club. “

From: Fight Club

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Tyler Durden

The story behind the quote: The quote comes from the cult film Fight Club. The story is all about an unnamed narrator (played by Edward Norton) meets charismatic soap maker Tyler Durden (played by Brad Pitt). As they get to know each other, they decide to open up the titular Fight Club as their fights always seem to attract a lot of attention from onlookers.

The quote is actually the first (and probably the most important) rule of Fight Club. The narrator states that, before every session, Tyler Durden details the rules of Fight Club for the benefit of those who have just joined.

Geek wisdom: People tend to be more open with their secrets in this day of age for various reasons. Whether it be to become popular in social media or to just get ahead, privacy isn’t at a premium anymore. In fact, it seems like the more secrets you spill these days, the better.

There are times when you need to keep a secret, especially if you know if it’ll get you into trouble.
