Scenarios indicating the need for quotes (Read this only if you don’t believe in them):
Investors lose night and nights of sleep due to over-anxiety of what’s happening in the market. Fluctuations cause tremors in the minds of investors. Many are insecure about their money because most of them don’t know what in the world they are doing. In a exhilarated state they wander with the crowd and eventually get stumped with them as well. If you are in this type of situation, take the time to gain some advice from people like Warren Buffet or Peter Lynch. Following their sayings can definitely help you become a better investor and become more confident about where you put your money. It will also get you a better nights sleep.
If Bob spends a lot of money and squanders it selfishly for self-satisfying products then he is wasting away precious money.

I have compiled these quotes because they hold so much inspiration and depth. Each saying can lead to a small positive change in one’s life. They can potentially lead a person on a path to enlightenment and greater success. Whats better then transcending towards your life goals and constructing a fruitful legacy for others to take notice.

They have changed the world and their thoughts just may change yours.
