“It turns out that value investing is something that is in your blood. There are people who just don’t have the patience and discipline to do it, and there are people who do. So it leads me to think it’s genetic.”
-- Seth Klarman

"Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken."
-- Warren Buffett

Whenever I read about some company undertaking a cost-cutting program, I know it's not a company that really knows what costs are all about. Spurts don't work in this area. The really good manager does not wake up in the morning and say, "This is the day I'm going to cut costs," any more than he wakes up and decides to practice breathing.
-- Warren Buffett



“So if the entire country became securities analysts, memorized Benjamin Graham’s Intelligent Investor and regularly attended Warren Buffett’s shareholder meetings, most people would, nevertheless, find themselves irresistibly drawn to hot initial public offerings, momentum strategies and investment fads… People would, in short, still be attracted to short-term, get rich quick schemes.
-- Seth Klarman

Find out what you really love to do, and then find a way to make a good living doing it.
-- Napoleon Hill

One of the main weaknesses of mankind is the average man's familiarity with the word "impossible."
-- Napoleon Hill

If all you succeed in doing in life is getting rich by buying little pieces of paper, it's a failed life. Life is more than being shrewd in wealth accumulation.
-- Charlie Munger

Very many people spend money in ways quite different from those that their natural tastes would enjoin, merely because the respect of their neighbors depends upon their possession of a good car and their ability to give good dinners. As a matter of fact, any man who can obviously afford a car but genuinely prefers travels or a good library will in the end be much more respected than if he behaved exactly like everyone else.
-- Bertrand Russel

"Over the long term it’s hard for a stock to earn a much better return than the business that underlies it earns."
-- Charlie Munger

"There are all kinds of businesses that I don't understand, but that doesn't cause me to stay up at night. It just means I go on to the next one, and that's what the individual investor should do."
-- Warren Buffett

Persistence is the direct result of habit. The mind absorbs and becomes a part of the daily experiences upon which it feeds. Fear, the worst of all enemies, can be effectively cured by forced repetition of acts of courage.
-- Napoleon Hill

Most of us go through life as failures, because we are waiting for the "time to be right" to start doing something worthwhile. Do not wait. The time will never be "just right." Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
-- Napoleon Hill

"It’s not whether you’re right or wrong that’s important, but how much money you make when you’re right and how much you lose when you’re wrong."
-- George Soros

"4. Does the company have an above average sales organization?"
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the Fifteen points to look for in a common stock"

"Don’t fail to consider time as well as price in buying a true growth stock."
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the don'ts for investors"

The strategy we've adopted precludes our following standard diversification dogma. Many pundits would therefore say the strategy must be riskier than that employed by more conventional investors. We disagree. We believe that a policy of portfolio concentration may well decrease risk if it raises, as it should, both the intensity with which an investor thinks about a business and the comfort-level he must feel with its economic characteristics before buying into it.
- 1993 Chairman's Letter to Shareholders
-- Warren Buffett

If you understand the business, you don't need to own very many of them. If you have a harem of 40 women, you never get to know any of them very well.
-- Warren Buffett

Experience tends to confirm a long-held notion that being prepared, on a few occasions in a lifetime, to act promptly in scale, in doing some simple and logical thing, will often dramatically improve the financial results of that lifetime. A few major opportunities, clearly recognizable as such, will usually come to one who continuously searches and waits, with a curious mind that loves diagnosis involving multiple variables. And then all that is required is a willingness to bet heavily when the odds are extremely favorable, using resources available as a result of prudence and patience in the past.
-- Charlie Munger
