The Top 22 Investment Quotes

warren-buffett quoteWarren Buffett (Net Worth $39 Billion) – “‘Price is what you pay; value is what you get.’ Whether we’re talking about socks or stocks, I like buying quality merchandise when it is marked down.”

george-soros quoteGeorge Soros (Net Worth $22 Billion) – “I’m only rich because I know when I’m wrong…I basically have survived by recognizing my mistakes.”


carl-icahn quoteCarl Icahn (Net Worth $13 Billion) – “You learn in this business: If you want a friend, get a dog”


david-rubenstein-quoteDavid Rubenstein (Net Worth $2.8 Billion) – “Persist – don’t take no for an answer. If you’re happy to sit at your desk and not take any risk, you’ll be sitting at your desk for the next 20 years.”

ray-dalio quoteRay Dalio (Net Worth $6.5 Billion) – “More than anything else, what differentiates people who live up to their potential from those who don’t is a willingness to look at themselves and others objectively.”

Alisher-Usmanov-QuoteAlisher Usmanov (Net Worth $18.1 Billion) – “First of all I trust my own instinct, experience that I gained over years and feeling when the moment is right for buying shares. That is what one calls intuition.

carlos slim quoteCarlos Slim (Net Worth $69 Billion) – “Anyone who is not investing now is missing a tremendous opportunity.”


edward-lampert quoteEddie Lampert (Net Worth $3 Billion) – “This idea of anticipation is key to investing and to business generally. You can’t wait for an opportunity to become obvious. You have to think, “Here’s what other people and companies have done under certain circumstances. Now, under these new circumstances, how is this management likely to behave?”

t boone pickens quoteT. Boone Pickens (Net Worth $1.4 Billion) – “The older I get, the more I see a straight path where I want to go. If you’re going to hunt elephants, don’t get off the trail for a rabbit.”

Charlie Munger quoteCharlie Munger (Net Worth $1 Billion) – “If you took our top fifteen decisions out, we’d have a pretty average record. It wasn’t hyperactivity, but a hell of a lot of patience. You stuck to your principles and when opportunities came along, you pounced on them with vigor.”

Jim Cramer QuoteJim Cramer (Net Worth $100 Million) – “As long as you enjoy investing, you’ll be willing to do the homework and stay in the game. That’s why I try to make the show so entertaining, because if you aren’t interested, you’ll either miss the opportunity to make money in the market or not pay enough attention and end up losing your shirt.”

Michael Milken QuoteMichael Milken (Net Worth $2.1 Billion) – “My experience indicates that most people who’ve accumulated a great deal of wealth haven’t had that as their goal at all. Wealth is only a by-product, not the original motivation.”

david-tepper quoteDavid Tepper (Net Worth $5 Billion) – “This company looks cheap, that company looks cheap, but the overall economy could completely screw it up. The key is to wait. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to do nothing.”

Benjamin Graham QuoteBenjamin Graham – R.I.P (Net Worth Unknown) – “The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator. This means that he should be able to justify every purchase he makes and each price he pays by impersonal, objective reasoning that satisfies him that he is getting more than his money’s worth for his purchase.”

louis-bacon quoteLouis Bacon (Net Worth $1.4 Billion) – “As a speculator you must embrace disorder and chaos.”


paul-tudor-jones quotePaul Tudor Jones (Net Worth $3.2 Billion) – “Were you want to be is always in control, never wishing, always trading, and always, first and foremost protecting your butt. After a while size means nothing. It gets back to whether you’re making 100% rate of return on $10,000 or $100 million dollars. It doesn’t make any difference.”

peter-thiel_quotePeter Thiel (Net Worth $1.5 Billion) – “Value investors look at cash flows. If a company can maintain present cash flows for 5 or 6 years, it’s a good investment. Investors then just hope that those cash flows—and thus the company’s value—don’t decrease faster than they anticipate.”

bruce-kovner quoteBruce Kovner (Net Worth $4.3 Billion) – ” My experience with novice traders is that they trade three to five times too big. They are taking 5 to 10 percent risks on a trade when they should be taking 1 to 2 percent risks. The emotional burden of trading is substantial; on any given day, I could lose millions of dollars. If you personalize these losses, you can’t trade.”

rene-rivkin-quoteRene Rivkin (Net Worth $346 Million) – “When buying shares, ask yourself, would you buy the whole company?”


peter lynch quotePeter Lynch (Net Worth $352 Million) – “I think you have to learn that there’s a company behind every stock, and that there’s only one real reason why stocks go up. Companies go from doing poorly to doing well or small companies grow to large companies.”

John Templeton QuoteJohn Templeton (Net Worth $20 Billion)– “The time of maximum pessimism is the best time to buy and the time of maximum optimism is the best time to sell.”


jack bogle quoteJohn (Jack) Bogle (Net Worth $4 Billion) – “If you have trouble imagining a 20% loss in the stock market, you shouldn’t be in stocks.”

    Another all inspiring post, the one that really stood out for me was “Anyone who is not investing now is missing a tremendous opportunity.” it is very true, being able to invest successfully is not just an opportunity because it creates wealth but is also an opportunity because it allows you to grow in many other aspects of life.

    For those of you who are looking to invest in shares , i would recommend two books Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham the day you will read these two books you will start producing gains yourself. I read the book, then went on to buy share of a company and that has so far returned me 30% profit in just over 2 months now this is impressive because never before in my life i made this gain and i was so sure of that. I still feel the share will go another 50% upwards. Let’s see.

    you should really invest in an industry that you understand. You should find one great investor and follow his lead, but someone that is in an industry that you have an understanding or a passion for. there is a reason why these guys have made it. find out their strategy and replicate if you must.

      Hey Jay

      Investing is a process, making or losing money is the by product of the process. You learn and develop your own process. Win or lose will be entirely up to you because of your own process. All can I say is invest the 10K and find your own process.
