„Buy into a company because you want to own it, not because you want the stock to go up.“

—  Warren Buffett American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist 1930

Interview in Forbes magazine (1 November 1974)
Contexto: Draw a circle around the businesses you understand and then eliminate those that fail to qualify on the basis of value, good management and limited exposure to hard times. … Buy into a company because you want to own it, not because you want the stock to go up. … People have been successful investors because they've stuck with successful companies. Sooner or later the market mirrors the business.

—  Horace Mann American politician 1796 - 1859

The Duty of Owning Books (1859)
Contexto: Men are not accustomed to buy books unless they want them. If, on visiting the dwelling of a man of slender means, I find the reason why he has cheap carpets and very plain furniture to be that he may purchase books, he rises at once in my esteem. Books are not made for furniture but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.
