Two Book Chapters That Changed Warren Buffett's Life
The Intelligent Investor, “Chapters 8 and 20"... “I suggest that all investors read those chapters and reread them every time the market has been especially strong or weak.” It boils down to avoiding losses by owning only stocks selling well below your calculation of their fair or intrinsic value. After that, the key is to keep your emotions in check and be patient. http://www.forbes.com/sites/schifrin/2013/06/05/two-book-chapters-that-changed-warren-buffetts-life/

ABRAHAM LINCOLN (1809-1865) 16th President of the United States, who succesfully led our country through the monumental crisis of the Civil War. He was assasinated shortly after the war ended.
Lincoln In 1858, The Year Of His Debates Debates With Stephen Douglas Over Slavery"A house divided against itself cannot stand."Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln’s speech, “A House Divided” “If we could first know where we are and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do and how to do it. We are now far into the fifth year since a policy was initiated with the avowed object and confident promise of putting an end to slavery agitation. Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only not ceased but has constantly augmented. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed."A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become alike lawful in all the states, old as well as new, North as well as South.” http://www.ushistory.org/us/32b.asp Color by Stacey Palmer TheCivilWarParlor@tumblr.com

Nobody spends somebody else's money as carefully as he spends his own. Nobody uses somebody else's resources as carefully as he uses his own. So if you want efficiency and effectiveness, if you want knowledge to be properly utilized, you have to do it through the means of private property. - Milton Friedman

"One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results." --economist Milton Friedman
Where can I find more like this? "Those proponents of rational choice models associated with the Chicago school of economics do not claim that a model's assumptions are a full description of reality, only that good models can aid reasoning and provide help in formulating falsifiable hypothesis, whether intuitive or not."

However noble the purpose may be, it is rarely achieved by government because people have purposes of their own and adapt to government policies in ways that compromise or defeat them and because interest group pressures skew government programs to the groups' purposes at the expense of others. - Chris DeMuth Sr
