Investing Quotes from Past and Present Legends

Tips and Advice from Financial Icons

In the financial world, paying attention to quality investment advice can literally pay off. There is no magic formula or secret manual to give you a 100% success rate, but you can improve your decision-making skills by educating yourself. Imagine “How to Shoot a Jumpshot” by Michael Jordan or “How to Build Your Career” by Oprah Winfrey. There are certain individuals who command respect in their field and speak from a point of authority. And when they speak, you should listen.

tm3I have researched and gathered a variety of advice from investment legends, billionaires and even a Founding Father. He may have been 250 years ahead of the current market structure and equity crowdfunding, but solid investment advice always stands the test of time. Please enjoy (and heed) the following advice from legendary figures from the past and present:

Warren Buffet, Chairman and CEO, Berkshire Hathaway

“It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.”

Roger Babson, Founder, Babson Statistical Organization

“More people should learn to tell their dollars where to go instead of asking them where they went.”

William Sharpe, Co-Founder, Financial Engines

“Some investments do have higher expected returns than others. By and large they’re the ones that will do the worst in bad times.”

Henry Ford, American Industrialist, Founder of Ford Motor Company

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”

Thomas Rowe Price Jr., Founder, T. Rowe Price & Associates

“[Most big fortunes result] from investing in a growing business and staying with it through thick and thin.”

Robert Arnott, American Entrepreneur, Investor, Editor and Writer

“In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.”

Rich Dad, a series of educational books and games by Robert Kiyosaki

“To be a successful business owner and investor, you have to be emotionally neutral to winning and losing. Winning and losing are just part of the game.”

Robert G. Allen, Best Selling Author, Speaker, Mentor

“How many millionaires do you know who have become wealthy by investing in savings accounts? I rest my case.”

Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father, Writer, Inventor, Scientist

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

Malcolm Forbes, Publisher of Forbes Magazine

“It’s never too late to learn.”

For all of the non-accredited investors out there, I saved Franklin and Forbes for last. Investing your own time in becoming more familiar and confident about investing will always pay off. And no matter how difficult it may seem, it is never too late to learn.  If your focus and determination are at 100% you will always be at your absolute best.
