Quotes of the day from previous years:
2004
There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds. ~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson
  • selected by Kalki
2005
No one can conceive the variety of feelings which bore me onwards, like a hurricane, in the first enthusiasm of success.

The animals of the Burgess Shale are holy objects — in the unconventional sense that this word conveys in some cultures. We do not place them on pedestals and worship from afar. We climb mountains and dynamite hillsides to find them. We quarry them, split them, carve them, draw them, and dissect them, struggling to wrest their secrets. We vilify and curse them for their damnable intransigence. .They are grubby little creatures of a sea floor 530 million years old, but we greet them with awe because they are the Old Ones, and they are trying to tell us something.^ So, have any of the BBWA folks come out and said they won't vote for Ripken on the first ballot because no one should be unanimous?

Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies. .And if they insist on trying to time their participation in equities, they should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.^ I tried siteadvisor last time it was tagged yellow, like some others, prosecurity - red etc.

Can you really explain to a fish what it's like to walk on land? One day on land is worth a thousand years of talking about it, and one day running a business has exactly the same kind of value. ~ Warren Buffett

Take me as an example. I happen to have a talent for allocating capital. But my ability to use that talent is completely dependent on the society I was born into. If I'd been born into a tribe of hunters, this talent of mine would be pretty worthless. I can't run very fast. I'm not particularly strong. I'd probably end up as some wild animal's dinner. ~ Warren Buffett
