Quotes Entirely Relevant to Investing

by Mr Juggles

Gold is your chance. Gold is everyman’s opportunity… Every defect in a man and in others’ way of taking him, our agreement that gold has value, gives us power to rise above… The value I gave the gold restrained me, you see, your utility in connection with it. And because of my gold, those at the other tables deferred to my restraint… Gold confers power. Power comes to any man who has the color… That is our species hope. That uniformly agreeing on its value, we organize to seek the color.

-George Hearst, on Deadwood
