Profit quotes page 2

To profit from good advice requires more wisdom than to give it.
Wilson Mizner

Ideally, your risk-to-reward ratio should be at least 3:1, which means you are only risking one
dollar for every three dollars of profit potential.
Mark Douglas

When I first became involved in commodities, I noticed that if you bought pork bellies in
September and sold them before July, you almost always made a profit. So I formed a fund
with a group of friends, and I put on this trade. It worked. I doubled the money. I felt like a
genius.
Larry Hite

Disagreement is not only profitable, but necessary to thinking.
Lin Yutang

Is more distribution automatically better? No... From ipods to Rolex and Estee Lauder,
sustainable high-profit brands usually begin with controlled distribution. Remember, more
customers isn't the goal; more profit is.
Tim Ferriss

Profit is better than fame.
Danish proverb

Gold laboreth diligently and contentedly for the wise owner who finds for it profitable
employment, multiplying even as the flocks of the field.
George S. Clason

Profit surpasses pride.
African proverb, Swahili

Why is pot against the law? It wouldn't be because anyone can grow it, and therefore you
can't make a profit off it, would it?
Bill Hicks

Individuals who cannot master their emotions are ill-suited to profit from the investment
process.
Benjamin Graham

If you asked me to distill trading down to its simplest form, I would say that it is a pattern
recognition numbers game. We use market analysis to identify patterns, define the risk, and
determine when to take profits. The trade either works or it doesn't.
Mark Douglas

Rise early, that by habit it may become familiar, agreeable, healthy, and profitable. It may, for
a while, be irksome to do this, but that will wear off; and the practice will produce a rich
harvest forever thereafter; whether in public or private walks of life.
George Washington

You would not know where to put all the profits if there were no losses.
Russian proverb

The truth about business is that it's normally very tough. It's very rare that you will start
something and succeed right away and if you do succeed, you might not make a lot of
money. Most businesses take at least two to three years to show profits.
David Bach

My high-tech aversion caused me to make fun of the typical biotech enterprise: $100 million
in cash from selling shares, one hundred Ph.D.'s, 99 microscopes, and zero revenues.
Peter Lynch

Art is making something out of nothing, and selling it.
Frank Zappa

If the share price advances, it is because most investors expect earnings to grow.
Benjamin Graham

We have bigger houses but smaller families; We have more degrees but less sense;
more knowledge but less judgements; more experts but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness. We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but we have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever,
but we have less communication. We have become long on quantity
but short on quality. These are times of fast foods, but slow digestion;
tall man, but short character; steep profits, but shallow relationships.
It is a time when there is much in the window but nothing in the room.
Dalai Lama

We profit little by books we do not enjoy.
John Lubbock

To make mistakes is human, but to profit from them is divine.
Elbert Hubbard

Become a minsumer. Advertisers, corporations, and politicians like to define us as
"consumers." By encouraging us to buy as much as possible, they succeed in lining their
pockets, growing their profits, and getting re-elected. Where does that leave us? Working
long hours at jobs we don't like, to pay for things we don't need.
Francine Jay

Everyone is wise for his own profit.
Portuguese proverb

Revenge is profitable, gratitude is expensive.
Edward Gibbon

Do not profit from the misfortune of others.
Chinese proverb

The goal of any trader is to turn profits on a regular basis, yet so few people ever really make
consistent money as traders. What accounts for the small percentage of traders who are
consistently successful? To me, the determining factor is psychological - the consistent
winners think differently from everyone else.
Mark Douglas

No profit without pains.
Scottish proverb

It is respectable to have no illusions, and safe, and profitable and dull.
Joseph Conrad

When youth comes to age for advice he receives the wisdom of years. But too often does
youth think that age knows only the wisdom of days that are gone, and therefore profits not.
George S. Clason

It is no profit to have learned well, if you neglect to do well.
Syrus

He has committed the crime who profits by it.
Seneca

Instead of praying quietly, pray out loud, stating each desire as fact. Remember, "A great
price is about to come into my life." "A very profitable opportunity is on its way to me." "A
large sum is dropping into my lap effortlessly," and so on. Invoke, invoke, you'll never be broke.
Stuart Wilde
