Do you know the only thing that gives me pleasure? It's to see
my dividends coming in. John D. Rockefeller
"Dividend stocks have several advantages, since
1926 dividends have accounted for about 42 per cent of investor
returns, while being less volatile than the market. To some extent the
dividend acts like an anchor, slowing the stock down. The beauty of
dividends is that you get paid, whether or not the market is up."
"There are 60,000 economists in the U.S., many of them
employed full-time trying to forecast recessions and interest rates,

gainfully employed, which ought to tell us something."
• “If you want the recipe for getting rich in the stock market, here it is: Find stocks with above – average appreciation potential and safe and growing dividends, and buy them at attractive prices.”
"Investing is not rocket science. You don't earn more if
you have the higher IQ, nor do you need to be a math genius to make
money. You can spend many hours a week or just a few hours a year
investing and still earn satisfactory returns."
"Dividend increases are a sign that companies are
comfortable their future profit will be resilient."
"Stocks are simple. All you do is buy shares in a great
business for less than the business is intrinsically worth, with
management of the highest integrity and ability. Then you own those
shares forever." – Warren Buffett
"Twenty years in this business convinces me that any
normal person using the customary three percent of the brain can pick
stocks just as well, if not better, than the average Wall Street
"There are no bad days in the market. When the market is
down, you’ve got bargains, and it’s lovely to think of what you

gone, but you’re rich.”
“To grow your wealth to a secure and comfortable retirement,
you should invest in individual stocks in companies that dominate
their industries and have a long history of high dividend growth.”
“I also do not believe in buying companies that do not pay
attractive dividends. Nobody

it’s obvious that companies that have a strong uninterrupted record
are more interesting than those that have not.”

You should not buy a stock because it’s cheap but because you

The dividend is such an important factor in the success of many
stocks that you could hardly go wrong by making an entire portfolio of
companies that have raised their dividends for 10 or 20 years in a
row.– Peter Lynch
You have to keep your priorities straight if you plan to do
well in stocks. – Peter Lynch

don’t do. – Anthony Robbins

drive into the future using a rearview mirror to guide themselves! If
you that, you’ll crash. – Anthony Robbins
No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress,
you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying. When people
achieve extraordinary, seemingly impossible goals, they’re often
assumed to have been “fortunate,” “in the right place at the
right time,” or “born under a lucky star.” But I’ve
interviewed many of the greatest achievers in the world, and one of
the interesting things I’ve learned is that each of their incredible
accomplishments began with the same first step: the setting of a goal.

Whatever happens, take responsibility. – Anthony Robbins
Every problem is a gift – without problems we would not grow.

– Benjamin Graham
The individual investor should act consistently as an investor

every purchase he makes and each price he pays by impersonal,
objective reasoning that satisfies him that he is getting more than
his money’s worth for his purchase. – Benjamin Graham
I have known Buffett for many years, and I must say I have
never met anyone else with his combination of high character and

to give with. – Billy Graham
When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost,
something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost. – Billy

sense. It’s how your grandparents lived – if you don’t have the
money, you can’t buy it! – Dave Ramsey

If normal is good then that’s ok, let’s be normal. But
normal is not good. Normal in America today is 70% of Americans are
living paycheck to paycheck according to the Wallstreet journal.
Normal in America today is bankruptcy is increased almost every single
year. Normal in America today is people work their whole lives and
retire and say “I sure hope the government, which is well known for
it’s ability to handle money, will take care of me.” Normal in
America today is the number 1 cause for divorce in North America is
money fights and money problems…. Normal in America today is a car
with a payment and no idea that “I’m ever gonna live without a car
payment”… Normal in America today is broke, and it sucks! Looking
good and no freaking money! Big hat, no cattle! That’s normal. So
don’t talk to me about normal. Normal sucks! – Dave Ramsey
It is human nature to want it and want it now; it is also a
sign of immaturity. Being willing to delay pleasure for a greater
result is a sign of maturity.– Dave Ramsey
You can’t work three hours a week and make $100,000. Get rich
quick doesn’t work. Crock pot mentality always defeats microwave

If you listen to governments, then you are not going to make a
lot of money. Governments lie, distort and make mistakes. – Jim
Those who can not adjust to change will be swept aside by it.
Those who recognize change and react accordingly will benefit.– Jim
Now, how many times have I told people that you should never
invest in something unless you yourself know an enormous amount about
it?– Jim Rogers
What you have to do is you have to find things that will
protect your assets, real assets: Silver, rice, natural gas; something
that will hold its value in an inflationary time… I do it two ways:
I own gold and silver coins in my hand, in my house, in my box; I also
own gold and silver futures – that’s another way to do it.– Jim

A bailout is used when the rich want the taxpayers to pay for
their mistakes or their fraud. My research has found that a bailout is
an integral part of the conspiracy of the rich. – Robert Kiyosaki
One of the great things about being willing to try new things
and make mistakes is that making mistakes keeps you humble. People who
are humble learn more than people who are arrogant. – Robert
There are no mistakes in life, just learning opportunities. –
If you’re afraid of inflation, which you should be, I think
silver is the number 1 investment today. Silver is a smoking deal! And
silver, at about $15, $16, $20 an ounce, average Joe can do it, you
know. You just cut out your Starbucks for a while and go buy some
silver and you’re in the game. – Robert Kiyosaki
Question: What advice do you have for the average person?
Answer: Don’t be average. – Robert Kiyosaki
We go to school to learn to work hard for money. I write books
and create products that teach people how to have money work hard for
them. – Robert Kiyosaki
The problem is – money is not taught in
school. And so what
we do is follow in our parent’s footsteps when we do different jobs.
We often follow in the same financial patterns. – Robert Kiyosaki
Roosevelt asked the American public to turn in their gold in
1933, for which they were paid $20.22 per ounce in paper money. He
then raised the price of gold to $35 an ounce. In other words, for
every $20.22 in gold that was turned in, the public was cheated out of
about $15… If anyone was caught holding gold coins, the punishment
was a $10,000 fine and ten years in jail. One reason for doing this
was to get the public used to paper money as the sole currency of the
world. – Robert Kiyosaki
Sometimes life’s going to hit you in the head with a brick.
Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me
going was that I loved what I did. – Steve Jobs
You have to have a lot of passion for what you are doing. And
it’s totally true, and the reason is, because it’s so hard that if
you don’t, any rational person would give up. It’s really and you
have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don’t love,
if you’re not having fun doing it, you don’t really love it,
you’re gonna give up. And that’s what happens to most people
actually. If you really look at the ones that ended up, you know,
being “successful” in the eyes of society and the ones that
didn’t, often times, it’s the ones that are successful love what
they did so they could persevere. You know, when it got really tough.
And the ones that didn’t love it quit. – Steve Jobs
No matter how smart you are, you need a team of great people.
– Steve Jobs
Apple is like a ship with a hole in the bottom, leaking water,
and my job is to get the ship pointed in the right direction. –
One of the keys to Apple is: Apple’s an incredibly
collaborative company. You know how many committees we have at Apple?
Zero. We have no comittees. We are organized like a start-up. One
person’s in charge of iPhone OS software, one person is in charge of
Mac hardware, one person is in charge of iPhone hardware engineering,
another person is in charge of worldwide marketing, another person is
in charge of operations. It’s organized like a start-up. We’re the
biggest start-up on the planet. – Steve Jobs
Picasso had a saying: “Good artists copy, great artists
steal.” We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.–
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The
troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see
things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no
respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them,
glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore
them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because
the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do. – Steve Jobs
Ad campaigns are necessary for competition; IBM’s ads are
everywhere. But good PR educates people; that’s all it is. You
can’t con people in this business. The products speak for
themselves. – Steve Jobs
When I hire somebody really senior, competence is the ante.
They have to be really smart. But the real issue for me is, are they
going to fall in love with Apple? Because if they fall in love with
Apple, everything else will take care of itself. They’ll want to do
what’s best for Apple, not what’s best for them, what’s best for
Steve, or anybody else. – Steve Jobs
A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was
the right thing for them. We
chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great
products in front of customers, they would continue to open their
wallets. – Steve Jobs
I was worth over $1,000,000 when I was 23, and over $10,000,000
when I was 24, and over $100,000,000 when I was 25, and it wasn’t
that important because I never did it for the money. – Steve Jobs
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me.
Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful…

My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to take these
great people we have and to push them and make them even better.–
