Here are a few more of my favorite quotes on Wisdom, Money and Risk. Enjoy!

4) “Investment and speculation are said to be two different things, and the prudent man is advised to engage in one and avoid the other. This is something like explaining to to the troubled adolescent that Love and Passion are two different things. He perceives that they are different, but they don’t seem quite different enough to clear up his problems. ” -Fred Schwed, Jr. , Where are The Customers’ Yachts

5) “If you don’t know who you are the stock market is an expensive place to find out. ” -George Goodman

You'll find most people will talk endlessly about the first topic. However, the silence on the second question will make you think you've lost your hearing!"
