Quote #20

The author’s point of view

Patience, discipline, and a long-term perspective are traits that define one’s character, which leads not only to investing success but also to a balanced and long life. That is another benefit of value investing. Value investors tend to live long. And as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus used to say, ‘character is destiny.’
