“If you are a value investor, you have to be a long-term investor. And if you accept that, then you understand that you will lag your peers or the benchmark at times,” Mr. Eveillard said. “The truth is, it's warmer inside the herd. It's moving outside the herd that is hard to do.”
-- Jean-Marie Eveillard

"Our favourite holding period is forever."
-Letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, 1988



The subconscious mind makes no distinction between constructive and destructive thought impulses. It works with the material we feed it, through our thought impulses. The subconscious mind will translate into reality a thought driven by fear, just as readily as it will translate into reality a thought driven by courage or faith.

"I am out of step with present conditions. When the game is no longer played your way, it is only human to say the new approach is all wrong, bound to lead to trouble, and so on. On one point, however, I am clear. I will not abandon a previous approach whose logic I understand ( although I find it difficult to apply ) even though it may mean foregoing large, and apparently easy, profits to embrace an approach which I don't fully understand, have not practiced successfully, and which possibly could lead to substantial permanent loss of capital."
- in a letter to his partners in the stock market frenzy of 1969.
-- Warren Buffett

Berkshire Hathaway 2001 Chairman's Letter
-- Warren Buffett

"The line separating investment and speculation, which is never brightand clear, becomes blurred still further when most market participantshave recently enjoyed triumphs. Nothing sedates rationality like large doses of effortless money. After a heady experience of that kind, normally sensible people drift into behavior akin to that of Cinderella at the ball. They know that overstaying the festivities -- that is, continuing to speculate in companies that have gigantic valuations relative to the cash they are likely to generate in the future -- will eventually bring on pumpkins and mice. But they nevertheless hate to miss a single minute of what is one helluva party. Therefore, the giddy participants all plan to leave just seconds before midnight. There's a problem, though: They are dancing in a room in which the clocks have no hands."
- Berkshire Hathaway 2000 Chairman's Letter
-- Warren Buffett

"In a bull market, one must avoid the error of the preening duck that quacks boastfully after a torrential rainstorm, thinking that its paddling skills have caused it to rise in the world.

- Letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, 1997
-- Warren Buffett

Intelligent people make decisions based on opportunity costs.
-- Charlie Munger
