“In my whole life, I have known no wise people (over a broad subject matter area) who didn't read all the time -- none, zero. You'd be amazed at how much Warren reads--and at how much I read. My children laugh at me. They think I'm a book with a couple of legs sticking out.”
Charles T. Munger, Poor Charlie's Almanack: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger

“To get what you want, you have to deserve what you want. The world is not yet a crazy enough place to reward a whole bunch of

Charles T. Munger

“Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Day by day, and at the end of the day-if you live long enough-like most people, you will get out of life what you deserve.”
Charles T. Munger, Poor Charlie's Almanack: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger
