There is no such thing as a 99 percent probability of being right. There are too many immeasurables, and any probability assessment is itself subject to error. If you are making a trade that needs better than 95 percent probability for it to make sense, you shouldn't do the trade. - Andy Hall

It is impossible to produce superior performance unless you do something different. – Sir John Templeton

Investors frequently benefit from making decisions with less than perfect knowledge and are well rewarded for bearing the risk of uncertainty. The time other investors spend delving into the last unanswered detail may cost them the chance to buy into situations at prices so low they offer a margin of safety despite the incomplete information. - Seth Klarman

If you can find quasi unanimity in the stock market, you can do the opposite and be almost certain of success. - James Goldsmith

Can centrists survive in D.C.?: Former Indiana Governor, Evan Bayh, explains why he thinks Washington is "broken."

Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong. - Ayn Rand
