Warren Buffett
“It's nice to have a lot of money, but you know, you don't want to keep it around forever. I prefer buying things. Otherwise, it's a little like saving sex for your old age.”
Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett
“Games are won by players who focus on the playing field –- not by those whose eyes are glued to the scoreboard.”
Warren Buffett

Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson

Warren Buffett
“Investors should be skeptical of history-based models. Constructed by a nerdy-sounding priesthood using esoteric terms such as beta, gamma, sigma and the like, these models tend to look impressive. Too often, though, investors forget to examine the assumptions behind the models. Beware of geeks bearing formulas. ”
Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett
“If you aren't thinking about owning a stock for ten years, don't even think about owning it for ten minutes.”

“It amazes me how people are often more willing to act based on little or no data than to use data that is a challenge to assemble.”
Robert Shiller

Richelle E. Goodrich
“If you invest nothing, the reward is worth little.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold: Quotes, Poetry, & Motivations for Every Day of the Year

“Speculation is an effort, probably unsuccessful, to turn a little money into a lot. Investment is an effort, which should be successful, to prevent a lot of money from becoming a little.”
Fred Schwed Jr., Where Are the Customers' Yachts?: Or a Good Hard Look at Wall Street

Jim Rogers
“Acknowledge the complexity of the world and resist the impression that you easily understand it. People are too quick to accept conventional wisdom, because it sounds basically true and it tends to be reinforced by both their peers and opinion leaders, many of whome have never looked at whether the facts support the received wisdom. It's a basic fact of life that many things "everybody knows" turn out to be wrong.”
Jim Rogers

“You can get in way more trouble with a good idea than a bad idea, because you forget that the good idea has limits.”
Ben Graham

Roger Lowenstein
“Buffett's methodology was straightforward, and in that sense 'simple.' It was not simple in the sense of being easy to execute. Valuing companies such as Coca-Cola took a wisdom forged by years of experience; even then, there was a highly subjective element. A Berkshire stockholder once complained that there were no more franchises like Coca-Cola left. Munger tartly rebuked him. 'Why should it be easy to do something that, if done well two or three times, will make your family rich for life?”
Roger Lowenstein, Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist

“The broker said the stock was "poised to move." Silly me, I thought he meant up.”
Randy Thurman

Michel Foucault
“Modern man is not the man who goes off to discover himself, his secrets, and his hidden truth; he is a man who tries to invest himself”
Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality, Volume 1: An Introduction

“Investing money is the process of committing resources in a strategic way to accomplish a specific objective.”
Alan Gotthardt, The Eternity Portfolio

“Selecting twenty to thirty good stocks in unrelated industries is not an easy task. It takes immense efforts to follow twenty shares, so investors take the shortcut. They try to replace the efforts with more shares, hundreds of those.”
Naved Abdali

“All of us need to invest our capital to achieve financial freedom, but most of us are not equipped with the soul and skills to have concentrated portfolios.”
Naved Abdali

“Proper diversification can be achieved with a handful of assets. On the other hand, a poorly selected portfolio with hundreds of stocks and bonds can be inadequate for diversification purposes.”
Naved Abdali

“Prices are adjusted up to the cumulative perception of risk of all market participants.”
Naved Abdali

“Human behavior and information bias play a huge role in transaction prices. It creates short-term opportunities that can be exploited.”
Naved Abdali

“Markets are not efficient enough to incorporate actual inherent risk, given information bias, and emotionally challenged participants. Instead, prices are adjusted up to the cumulative perceived risk of all participants.”
Naved Abdali

“The last transaction price is the least accurate measure of the fair value.”
Naved Abdali

“Prices are dominated by the minority, and values are governed by the majority.”
Naved Abdali

“Market prices only matter at two points of time in the investment life cycle. First when you buy and second when you sell. In between these two points, value matters.”
Naved Abdali

“Market quotes change every second, but business evolves steadily. You have ample time to evaluate a business to buy or not to buy. There is no rush.”
Naved Abdali

“Last transaction price cannot and should not be a tool to measure the success or failure of
investing.”
Naved Abdali

“Detach yourself from day-to-day price action. As an investor, your primary focus should always be the business.”
Naved Abdali
