Price is what you pay and value is what you get.

WARREN BUFFETT, as quoted in Robert P. Miles' Warren Buffett Wealth

Success in investing doesn't correlate with I.Q. once you're above the level of 25. Once you have ordinary intelligence, what you need is the temperament to control the urges that get other people into trouble in investing.

WARREN BUFFETT, BusinessWeek interview, Jun. 25, 1999

The stock market is a no-called-strike game. You don't have to swing at everything -- you can wait for your pitch. The problem when you're a money manager is that your fans keep yelling, "Swing, you bum!"

WARREN BUFFETT, The Motley Fool, Mar. 26, 2003

Rule No. 1: Never lose money.
Rule No. 2: Never forget rule No. 1.

WARREN BUFFET, The Tao of Warren Buffet

In looking for someone to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. But the most important is integrity, because if they don't have that, the other two qualities, intelligence and energy, are going to kill you.

WARREN BUFFET, The Tao of Warren Buffet

It's an election year, and candidates can't stop speaking about our country's problems (which, of course, only they can solve). As a result of this negative drumbeat, many Americans now believe that their children will not live as well as they themselves do. That view is dead wrong: The babies being born in America today are the luckiest crop in history. American GDP per capita is now about $56,000.... That -- in real terms -- is a staggering six times the amount in 1930, the year I was born, a leap far beyond the wildest dreams of my parents or their contemporaries. U. S. citizens are not intrinsically more intelligent today, nor do they work harder than did Americans in 1930. Rather, they work far more efficiently and thereby produce more. This all-powerful trend is certain to continue: America's economic magic remains alive and well.

WARREN BUFFETT, annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, February 2016

I made my first investment at age eleven. I was wasting my life up until then.
