					Quotes It would be a very good thing if every trick could receive some short and obviously appropriate name, so that when a man used this or that particular trick, he could be at once reproached for it. Make little improvement everyday, and get great improvement in long term It's not greed that drives the world, but envy We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand. 苟利國家生死以,豈因禍福避趨之 枯木逢春猶再發,人無兩度再少年 忠言逆耳利於行,良藥苦口利於病 You're neither right nor wrong because other people agree with you. You're right because your facts are right and your reasoning is right—and that's the only thing that makes you right. And if your facts and reasoning are right, you don't have to worry about anybody else. Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.(cf. 前人種樹,後人遮蔭) You ought to be able to explain why you're taking the job you're taking, why you're making the investment you're making, or whatever it may be. And if it can't stand applying pencil to paper, you'd better think it through some more. And if you can't write an intelligent answer to those questions, don't do it. Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1. The key to investing is not assessing how much an industry is going to affect society, or how much it will grow, but rather determining the competitive advantage of any given company and, above all, the durability of that advantage. I will tell you how to become rich. Close the doors. Be fearful when others are greedy. Be greedy when others are fearful. Price is what you pay. Value is what you get. A public-opinion poll is no substitute for thought. A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. If A equals success, then the formula is: A = X + Y + Z, X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut. Information is not knowledge. Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them. No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. Without involvement, there is no commitment. Mark it down, asterisk it, circle it, underline it. No involvement, no If we keep doing what we're doing, we're going to keep getting commitment. what we're getting. My brain gets stronger every day because I exercise it. There is a difference between being poor and being broke. Broke is temporary, and poor is eternal. Just know that it's fear that keeps most people working at a job. The fear of not paying their bills. The fear of being tired. The fear of not having enough money. The fear of starting over. Emotions are what made us human, make us real. The world 'emotion' stands for 'energy in motion'. Be truthful about your emotions, and use your mind and emotions in your favour, not against yourself. If you don't love it, you won't take care of it.

Winning means being unafraid to lose. Failure inspires winners. Failure defeats losers. I always tried to turn every disaster into an opportunity

Fran Tarkenten Robert Kiyosaki John D. Rockefeller Going to the market, talking to a lot of people, making a lot of Robert Kiyosaki offers, counter-offering, negotiating, rejecting and accepting are necessary to find a good deal. Profit is made when you buy, not when you sell. Robert Kiyosaki 你不想做,就會找到一個藉口;你若想做,就會找到一個方法 陳如炳牧師/阿拉 伯諺語 三心兩意的事奉 梁永善牧師 三心: 剛強、仁愛、謹守 1:7 因 為   神 賜 給 我 們 、 不 是 膽 怯 的 心 、 乃 是 剛 強 、 仁 愛 、 謹 守 的 心 。 兩意: 榮神、益人 It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. Warren Buffett If you think about that, you'll do things differently. Human impediment: tend to learn the precise not the general Nassim Nicholas Taleb Adjust to black swans rather than try to predict them Nassim Nicholas Taleb We don't learn rules and only facts Nassim Nicholas Taleb When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir? John M. Keynes If you give a pilot an altimeter that is sometimes defective he Nassim Nicholas will crash the plane. Give him nothing and he will look out the Taleb window. Technology is only safe if it is flawless. Impossible things are happening every day! Cinderella You can't get the edge if you learn just from your own mistakes. Nassim Nicholas You need to learn from other people's mistakes as well and Taleb these are public information. Successful People Do Tough Things Jim Estill It is the exposure (or payoff) that creates the complexity -and Nassim Nicholas the opportunities and dangers- not so much the knowledge (i.e., Taleb statistical distribution, model representation, etc.). It is never worth a first class man's time to express a majority G.H. Hardy opinion. By definition, there are plenty of others to do that. My belief is that if an op-ed or column does not greatly upset a Paul Krugman substantial number of people, the author has wasted the space. This is particularly true in economics, where many people have strong views and rather fewer have taken the trouble to think those views through - so that simply insisting on being clearheaded about an issue is usually enough to enrage many if not most of your readers. No one will surrender tonight, but I won't give in. I know what I Twilight(Movie) want. Good Teacher: A Photo Frame Take care of my growth Enrich my field of vision Appreciate every single step I take Confirm that I've made the effort Help me to find my talent Encourage me to face challenge Ready to be my companion

Option-theoretic analysis: redundancy is like long an option. Nassim Nicholas You certainly pay for it, but it may be worth it. Taleb Biology: Complex systems, like the human body, and mother nature, are NOT optimized. They harbor plenty of duplicate pathways, plenty of redundancies.

咬定青山不放鬆,立根原在破岩中;千磨萬擊還堅勁,任爾東西 鄭燮 南北風。 This is how discovery works: returns on research investment do Nassim Nicholas not arrive steadily and predictably, but erratically and Taleb unpredictably, in a manner akin to intellectual earthquakes.

溫家寶曾引用"咬定青山不放鬆"來勉 勵各官員要持這精神辦事

子曰:「學而時習之,不亦說乎?有朋自遠方來,不亦樂乎?人不 知而不慍,不亦君子乎?」 子曰:「巧言令色,鮮矣仁!」 子夏曰:「賢賢易色;事父母,能竭其力;事君,能致其身;与朋 友交,言而有信。雖曰未學, 吾必謂之學矣。」 子曰:「君子食無求飽,居無求安,敏於事而慎於言,就有道而正 焉,可謂好學也已。」 子曰:「不患人之不己之,患不知人也。」 子曰:「吾十有五而志于學,三十而立,四十而不惑,五十而知天 命,六十而耳順,七十而從 心所欲,不逾矩。」 孟武伯問孝。子曰:「父母唯其疾之憂。」 子游問孝。子曰:「今之孝者,是謂能養。至於犬馬,皆能有養; 不敬,何以別乎。」 子曰:「溫故而知新,可以為師矣。」 子曰:「君子不器。」 子曰:「君子周而不比,小人比而不周。」 子曰:「學而不思則罔,思而不學則殆。」 子曰:「不仁者,不可以久處約,不可以長處樂。仁者安仁,知者 利仁。」 子曰:「君子喻於義,小人喻於利。」 子曰:「父母在,不遠游,游必有方。」 子曰:「知之者不如好之者,好之者不如樂之者。」 子曰:「三人行,必有我師焉:擇其善者而從之,其不善者而改 之。」 子曰:「不在其位,不謀其政。」 子曰:「學如不及,猶恐失之。」 子曰:「知者不惑;仁者不憂;勇者不懼。」 樊遲問仁。子曰:「居處恭,執事敬,与人忠;雖之夷狄,不可棄 也。」 子曰:「富與貴,是人之所欲也;不以其道得之,不處也。貧與 賤,是人之惡也;不以其道得之,不去也。君子去仁,惡乎成名。 君子無終食之間違仁,造次必於是,顛沛必於是。」
