Sharing Some Investing Quotes

Updated: June 22, 2012

As I was reading through my archives the other day, I noticed that I only had a few posts about investing last year. Admittedly, I was indeed more focused on business and personal finance.

That’s why this year, I’ll try to write more articles about investing, specifically on paper assets like stocks, bonds, mutual funds and others. I know this is a subject of special interest to those who really have extra money and doesn’t want their cash just sitting in their savings accounts.

Actually, a few weeks ago, I received an email from someone who is quite happy with his job and doesn’t want to leave the corporate world to become an entrepreneur. However, he does want to retire young and achieve financial freedom. His plan is to study and invest in the stock market and dabble on real estate, which is quite good if you ask me.

Anyway, as I plan and prepare these articles for you, let me first share some investing quotes from various personalities in the world of business and financial investments. I hope you enjoy reading them and do add a few more that you know. :)


“Well, you know, I was a human being before I became a businessman.”
George Soros, Jewish-American financial speculator and stock investor

“As long as you enjoy investing, you’ll be willing to do the homework and stay in the game.”

“The average man doesn’t wish to be told that it is a bull or bear market. What he desires is to be told specifically which particular stock to buy or sell. He wants to get something for nothing. He does not wish to work. He doesn’t even wish to have to think.”
Jesse Livermore, an early 20th century stock trader

“This market right now is moving on nothing more than emotions. Guess what? It almost always moves on emotions.”

“Understanding how to be a good investor makes you a better business manager and vice versa.”

Tim Blixseth, American businessman and billionaire

“I have a problem with too much money. I can’t reinvest it fast enough, and because I reinvest it, more money comes in. Yes, the rich do get richer.”
Robert Kiyosaki, investor, businessman, self-help author and motivational speaker

“The rich get richer. Not only because they have surpluses with which to invest, but because of the overriding emotional release they experience from having wealth.”

  1. Hi Fitz, I want to add this from Robert Kiyosaki: “The rich buy assets. The poor only have expenses. The middle class buys liabilities they think are assets. The poor and the middle class work for money. The rich have money work for them.”

  2. @Tyrone
    Yes, that’s another favorite quote of mine from Robert Kiyosaki. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for dropping by. I hope you subscribed to my feeds. :D

    I sent it already. Congratulations!

    Personally, I have nothing against putting all my eggs in one basket as long as I have many chickens that lay eggs for me. I think that’s more practical. :D

    Yes, money isn’t everything. But one should realize that money is important. When we are financially stable, then we can focus on things which give more meaning to our lives. Thanks for the comment. :)

  3. Interesting to see how many of these guys have been true to their quotes – Blixseth, for example, is in bankruptcy court and has left investors like Credit Suisse on the hook for hundreds of millions in bad debt…
