Most popular success quotes

Categories: Quotes, Success | Leave a comment

I tried a few dozen success quotes on my twitter profile to see which ones would be the most popular. The ones I liked most were not always the most popular. But, here are a few that my crowd liked the most!

Quotes for deep business thinkers

Categories: Quotes | Leave a comment

Here are some quotes that I really liked that my audience on Twitter did not like. These quotes are deeper and more introspective for most types. But, see if you like them.

“Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.”
Warren Buffett

Commentary: I also find it bizarre that someone with no financial achievement is deemed qualified to give financial advice to those that have.

“If a business does well, the stock eventually follows.” — Warren Buffett

Commentary: My broker tried to get me to invest in some stock because it was “trending.” I told him that I like stocks that have intrinsic value. The broker tried to tell me that the earnings of a stock have nothing to do with the price. Warren Buffet and I agree that the earnings have a lot to do with the price at least in the long run.

“If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.”
Warren Buffett

Commentary: Although Warren prefers investing in companies with long standing track records, he realizes that looking into the future with some level of intuition is necessary. Although he invested in some oil ventures in Canada, and cable stocks in Latin America, his largest investments are in finance stocks!

“Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.”
Henry Ford

Commentary: Henry Ford mastered the art of taking car building and dividing the task into hundreds of smaller manageable parts. One of my friends who runs a BPO does exactly the same thing with his various programming and social media tasks. He can divide one task into six pieces and give each piece to a different person — sometimes in different countries.

“The richest people in the world look for and build networks; everyone else looks for work.”
Robert Kiyosaki

Commentary: I think that Robert might be trying to say that America is going to be done soon.

“Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.”
Warren Buffet

“When you combine ignorance and leverage, you get some pretty interesting results.”
Warren Buffett

“Kites rise highest against the wind – not with it.”
Winston Churchill

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

“Getting rich is about fun. It’s a game, and you have to treat it that way.”
Robert Kiyosaki

“Losers are people who are afraid of losing.”
Robert Kiyosaki

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of #history has been about 200 years.”
Robert Kiyosaki

“French fries kill more people than guns and sharks, yet nobody’s afraid of French fries.”
Robert Kiyosaki

“Beware of geeks bearing formulas.”
Warren Buffett

“In times of rapid change, experience could be your worst enemy.”
J. Paul Getty
