Warren Buffett is an American investor, business tycoon, and philanthropist. He is the Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. Buffett is considered to be one of the most successful investors in the world and has a net worth of over 85.6 billion dollars, which makes him the world's fourth richest person.
Buffett is a philanthropist who has pledged to give away 99% of his fortune to good causes, mainly through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He founded The Giving Pledge in 2009 with his friend Bill Gates, whereby billionaires pledge to give away at least half of their fortunes.
Although Buffett is best known as a stock market investor, many of his most famous quotes have a universal application in business, and life in general. Here are my ten favourite quotes by Warren Buffet:
“I’ve never swung at a ball while it’s still in the pitcher’s glove.”
“Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.”
“You can’t produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant.”
“You can’t make a good deal with a bad person.”
“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”
“Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.”
“Beware of geeks bearing formulas.”
“It’s only when the tide goes out that you learn who’s been swimming naked.”
“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
“You only have to do a very few things
right in your life so long as you don't do too many things wrong.”
