#Quote
1Efficiency is required over time in capitalism. I don't know of any company that has a policy that says 'We're going to have a lot more people than we need'.
2[on forward-thinking] Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
3Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them. If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars.
4I buy expensive suits. They just look cheap on me.
5Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.
6The rich are always going to say that, you know, just give us more money and we'll go out and spend more and then it will all trickle down to the rest of you. But that has not worked the last 10 years, and I hope the American public is catching on.
7It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.
8We can rise to any challenge, but not if people feel we're in a plutocracy. We have to get serious about shared sacrifice.
9[on raising taxes on the wealthiest people] If you give me a choice between taking $1000 from twenty million families or hitting 50,000 people who shuffle money around all day, I'll take it from the people who shuffle money.
10Investors... should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.
11Nothing sedates rationality like large doses of effortless money.
12You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don't do too many things wrong.
13It is better to be approximately right than precisely wrong.
