"The financial markets are very efficient machines for moving money from the many to the few."

Speaking of cynical investing quotes, this is a favourite of mine.
"When a man with money meets a man with experience, the man with
experience leaves with money and the man with money leaves with experience."


Apropos nothing at all, here's one attributed to Mr Lincoln that Mr Buffett would probably like:
"If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six sharpening my axe."
(for "sharpening my axe" one might read "sitting on cash studying how/when best to invest it")
