Here are some Very Famous, some famous & some not so famous but very relevant Quotes of Warren Buffett that ooze with WISOM &COMMON SENSE:

Investing is Simple

Is the correct equation…
The Best definition of INVESTING:

“Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing”
“What counts for most people in investing is not how much they know, but rather how realistically they define what they don’t know”
Temperament over IQ
“You’re dealing with a lot of silly people in the marketplace; it’s like a great big casino and everyone else is boozing. If you can stick with Pepsi, you should be OK”
…when markets fall

You shouldn’t own common stocks if a 50% decrease in their value in a short period of time would cause you acute distress”
