Finding good partners is the key to success in anything: in business, in marriage and, especially, in investing.
The philosophy of the rich and the poor is this: the rich invest their money and spend what is left. The poor spend their money and invest the remaining.

As a bull market turns into a bear market, the new pros turn into optimists, hoping and praying the bear market will become a bull and save them.

The love of money is not the root of all evil. The lack of money is the root of all evil.
One of the reasons so many people get burned in the market is because they start buying as they see prices going up.
If you’ve failed, that means you’re doing something. If you’re doing something, you have a chance.
To be a successful business owner and investor, you have to be emotionally neutral to winning and losing. Winning and losing are just part of the game.
Education is what you learn after you leave school.
The only difference between a rich person and poor person is how they use their time.
Our brains are either our greatest assets or our greatest liabilities.
The rich continue to get rich the same way they always have – by understanding how money works and making their money work for them.
The more a person seeks security, the more that person gives up control over their life.
If you’re working for a good company and you’re happy there, and you’re being compensated accordingly, and your work satisfies you, you should stay there.
