“You don’t have to invest like an institution. If you invest like an institution, you are doomed to perform like on, which in many cases isn’t very well. Nor you have to force yourself to think like an amateur if you already are one. If you are a surfer, a trucker, a high school dropout, or an eccentric retiree, then you have got an edge already. That’s where the ten baggers are from, beyond the boundaries of accepted Wall Street cogitation. “-Peter Lynch-

“Crowds do not stop to think, as we have noted. The power of suggestion is what motivates their actions.”- G. Le Bon-

“The reason I have been so consistent is that I am a great listener. I probably talk to about 25 traders each day.

“You have to have an attitude that If your trade loses, you can handle it without any problem and come back to do the next trade. You cannot let a losing trade get you emotionally.” -Gary Bielfeldt-

“The relative strengths of the joy of winning and the pain of losing tend to increase with the distance of the trader from his commitment to being a trader”. -Ed Seykota-

“I turned into a winner when I was able to separate my ego needs from making money. When I was able to accept being wrong. Before, admitting I was wrong was more upsetting than losing the money”. -Marty Schwartz-

“Always sell what shows you a loss and keep what shows you a profit.”- Jesse Livermore-

“Great people are ordinary people with extraordinary amounts of determination”. –Anonymous-

“When one has successfully extended on limits, one has then grown into a larger state of being. Thus the act of loving is an act of self-evolution, even when the purpose of the act is someone else’s growth. It is reaching toward evolution that we evolve”. -Scott Peck-

“Among the reasons that a community is humble and hence realistic is that it is contemplative. It examines itself. It is self-aware. It knows itself. A sure rule for humility.” -Scott Peck-

“It is not whether you are right or wrong that is important, but how much money you make when you are right and how much you lose when you are wrong. The few times that Soros has ever criticized me was when I was really right on a market and didn’t maximize the opportunity.” -Stanley Druckenmiller-

I probably do more mental exercise now than I ever did. Each morning while I am driving to work, I make a conscious effort to relax. I mentally rehearse any conflict that might happen that day. “-Tom Basso-

It’s just another trade.”-Tom Basso-

We begin by distrusting what we already believe, by actively seeking the threatening and unfamiliar, by deliberating challenging the validity of what we have previously been thought and hold dear.

“If you find a stock with little or no institutional ownership, you have found a potential winner. Find a company that no analyst has ever visited, or that no analyst would admit to knowing about, and you have got a double winner.”- Peter Lynch-

“Understanding the probabilities sufficiently well to know which hands to play and which hands not to play is important, but that is just basic knowledge. The really great poker players have an understanding of proper betting strategies. What information do you get when your opponent bets? What information do you give away when you bet?”-Jeff Yass-

“The way to make money is to make it. The way the make big money is the be right at exactly the right time. In this business a man has to think of both theory and practice. A speculator must not be merely a student. He must be both a student and a speculator.” -Jesse Livermore-
