- Warren Buffett

- Peter Lynch

"We attracted a lot of market timers and asset allocators. I don't need those ... amateurs in my fund."
- Martin Whitman

- Charlie Munger

But the truth is that it is a lot like an ecosystem. And you get many of the same results."

"A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have."
