The Considerata


Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in the bar on the corner.

As far as possible, without paying too much interest be on good credit terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to others, even the celebrities and TV personalities for they too have their story.

Avoid loud and agressive brokers for they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others you will become happy for always there will be lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your investments as well as your strategies. Keep interested in your own portfolio, however humble it may be, it is your only real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs for the world is full of trickery but let this not blind you to what virtue there is. Many persons strive for high ideals and and verywhere life is full of heroism. Consult the TV listings for your local schedule.

Be Yourself.

Especially do not feign investment interest. Neither be cynical about PE ratios for in the face of all the bears and disenchantments, profits are as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth, save till you are old enough or rich enough to be excused for being a goat again.

Nurture financial strength to shield you in sudden misfortune but do not distress yourself with promising prospecti. Many losses are born of poor PE ratios and tax law changes.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with your broker. He is a child of the market, no less than the blue chips and the new mergers, He has a right to be there.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the ticker is unrolling as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with the Dow, whatever you conceive him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of market, keep peace within your portfolio.

With all it's sham, drudgery and broken dreams it is still the long term earnings that matter.

Be careful...

Strive to be independently wealthy.
