Investment and Life Lessons - Part 3

Here's the part 3 of my previous post regarding the lessons/quotes I've encountered in my various readings on business, stocks, economy, money, war and life. My list is getting too long again hence I'm sharing it with the Filipino Investors out there for them to learn a thing or two. Cheers!

  1. Humble thyself
  2. Failure after long perseverance is much grander than never to have a striving good enough to be called a failure - George Eliot
  3. Behind every successful trader lies a string of trading failures
  4. Face the wind - Vito Dagoy
  5. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard
  6. If people only knew how hard I work to gain my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all.  ~ Michelangelo
  7. Work hard in silence, let success make the noise.
  8. One of the most important skills, then, that we can teach our children is to think about numbers logically and critically, and enable this sort of querying and verification. The goal of these skills is not to see if the number you’ve encountered is exactly correct, but only to see if it is approximately correct— that is, close enough to be plausible.
  9. When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come close to the conclusion that the gift of imagination has meant more to me than any talent for absorbing absolute knowledge. . . . All great achievements of science must start from intuitive knowledge. I believe in intuition and inspiration. . . . At times I feel certain I am right while not knowing the reason. - Albert Einstein
