Charlie Munger : "It is remarkable how much long-term advantage people like us have gotten by trying to be consistently not stupid, instead of trying to be very intelligent.”                 Warren Buffett : “Calling someone who trades actively in the market an investor is like calling someone who repeatedly engages in one-night stands a romantic.”                Ben Graham : “The underlying principles of sound investment should not alter from decade to decade, but the application of these principles must be adapted to significant changes in the financial mechanisms and climate.”                 Seth Klarman : "While it might seem that anyone can be a value investor, the essential characteristics of this type of investor-patience, discipline, and risk aversion-may well be genetically determined.”                Seth Klarman : “Generally, the greater the stigma or revulsion, the better the bargain.”                Charlie Munger : “All intelligent investing is value investing — acquiring more that you are paying for. You must value the business in order to value the stock.”                 Ben Graham : “Confronted with a challenge to distill the secret of sound investment into three words, we venture the motto, Margin of Safety.”                Seth Klarman : “The stock market is the story of cycles and of the human behavior that is responsible for overreactions in both directions.”                Peter Lynch :“If you don’t study any companies, you have the same success buying stocks as you do in a poker game if you bet without looking at your cards.”                Ben Graham :“Buy not on optimism, but on arithmetic.”                 Ben Graham :“As in roulette, same is true of the stock trader, who will find that the expense of trading weights the dice heavily against him.”            Peter Lynch : “Go for a business that any idiot can run – because sooner or later, any idiot probably is going to run it.”                Ben Graham : “The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator.”                 Ben Graham : “If you are shopping for common stocks, choose them the way you would buy groceries, not the way you would buy perfume.”                 Seth Klarman : “Investing is the intersection of economics and psychology.”                Seth Klarman : “Value investing is at its core the marriage of a contrarian streak and a calculator.”                Warren Buffett : "Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”                Warren Buffett : “Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1.”                Warren Buffett : “Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.”                Warren Buffett : “We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.”                Charlie Munger : “Our job is to find a few intelligent things to do, not to keep up with every damn thing in the world.”                 Warren Buffett : “Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.”                Warren Buffett : “We don’t have to be smarter than the rest. We have to be more disciplined than the rest.”                Warren Buffett : “Cash combined with courage in a time of crisis is priceless.”                Warren Buffett : “If you have more than 120 or 130 I.Q. points, you can afford to give the rest away. You don’t need extraordinary intelligence to succeed as an investor.”                Warren Buffett : “Unless you can watch your stock holding decline by 50% without becoming panic-stricken, you should not be in the stock market.”                Ben Graham :“In the short run, the market is a voting machine, but in the long run it is a weighing machine.”                 Warren Buffett : “Wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing.”                Warren Buffett : “If you are not willing to own a stock for 10 years, do not even think about owning it for 10 minutes.”                Peter Lynch : “If you’re prepared to invest in a company, then you ought to be able to explain why in simple language that a fifth grader could understand, and quickly enough so the fifth grader won’t get bored.”                Peter Lynch : “Behind every stock is a company. Find out what it’s doing.”        Seth Klarman : “While some might mistakenly consider value investing a mechanical tool for identifying bargains, it is actually a comprehensive investment philosophy that emphasizes the need to perform in-depth fundamental analysis, pursue long-term investment results, limit risk, and resist crowd psychology.”                Peter Lynch : “Twenty years in this business convinces me that any normal person using the customary three percent of the brain can pick stocks just as well, if not better, than the average Wall Street expert.”                Peter Lynch : “Know what you own, and know why you own it.”                Peter Lynch :“In the long run, it’s not just how much money you make that will determine your future prosperity. It’s how much of that money you put to work by saving it and investing it.”                Peter Lynch :“Although it’s easy to forget sometimes, a share is not a lottery ticket… it’s part-ownership of a business.”
