Catching and thoughtful quotes:

“Life is paradise, and we are all in paradise, but we refuse to see it.”

― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Boredom is the root of all evil. It is very curious that boredom, which itself has such a calm and sedate nature, can have such a capacity to initiate motion. The effect that boredom brings about is absolutely magical, but this effect is one not of attraction but of repulsion.

― Søren Kierkegaard

The thing that I have been emphasizing in my own work for the last few years has been the group approach. To try to buy groups of stocks that meet some simple criterion for being undervalued – regardless of the industry and with very little attention to the individual company… I found the results were very good for 50 years. They certainly did twice as well as the Dow Jones. And so my enthusiasm has been transferred from the selective to the group approach.

– The Intelligent Investor, Benjamin Graham, Wikipedea.
