Stock market quotes by Warren Buffett that you must follow

1)On money:

“Rule No. 1: Never lose money. Rule No. 2: Never forget rule No.1”

2)On price & value:

 “Long ago, Ben Graham taught me that ‘Price is what you pay; value is what you get.’ Whether we’re talking about socks or stocks, I like buying quality merchandise when it is marked down.”

3)On risk:

“Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.”


4)On fear & greed:

“Two super-contagious diseases, fear and greed, will forever occur in the investment community. Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies. And if they insist on trying to time their participation in equities, they should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy only when others are fearful.”

5)On Investing:

“I call investing the greatest business in the world … because you never have to swing. You stand at the plate, the pitcher throws you General Motors at 47! U.S. Steel at 39! and nobody calls a strike on you. There’s no penalty except opportunity lost. All day you wait for the pitch you like; then when the fielders are asleep, you step up and hit it.”

6)On choosing stocks:

“I try to buy stock in businesses that are so wonderful that an idiot can run them. Because sooner or later, one will.”


7)On Investor:

“The most important quality for an investor is temperament, not intellect. You need a temperament that neither derives great pleasure from being with the crowd or against the crowd.”

8)On patience:

“Successful Investing takes time, discipline and patience. No matter how great the talent or effort, some things just take time: You can’t produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant.”

9)On price:

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

10)On holding period:

“When we own portions of outstanding businesses with outstanding managements, our favorite holding period is forever.”
