Personal Quote:
"Good trading is a peculiar balance between the conviction to follow your ideas and the flexibility to recognise when you have made a mistake" - Michael Steinhardt "It's not whether you're right or wrong that's important, but how much money you make when you're right and how much you lose when you're wrong." - George Soros "[No loyalty to positions] is important because it gives you a wide open intellectual horizon to figure out what is really happening. It allows you to come in with a completely clean slate in choosing the correct forecast for that particular market." - Paul Tudor Jones "Although gold dust is precious, when it gets in your eyes it obstructs your vision" - His-Tang "People see the winners and project future performance without knowing the size of the cemetery" - Nassim Taleb "Democracy has terrible taste" - BBC interviewee "Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today" - James Dean "Among those I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh" - W.H. Auden "If things seem like they're under control, you're just not going fast enough" - Mario Andretti "Who Dares Wins" - SAS Regiment "Minds are like parachutes. They only function when open." - Sir Thomas R. Dewar "Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it" - Goethe "I've got a great ambition to die of exhaustion rather than boredom" - Sir Angus Grossart "If fate doesn't make you laugh, you just don't get the joke" - from Gregory David Roberts' book 'Shantaram' "A balanced diet is a glass of champagne in each hand" - Unknown "Die young, live long" - unknown Chinese entrepreneur
