The Miserable M’s

In alphabetical order, for no apparent reason.


“By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day.”
―Robert Frost


“Some people calculate their risk. Some people aren’t good at math.”


“Some people remember everything you say and how you make them feel.”


“Misery is almost always the result of thinking.”


“Misinterpretations are a communicable disease.”


“Great is the power of steady misrepresentation.”


“One stupid misstep can change everything for the worse.”


“We made too many wrong mistakes.”
―Yogi Berra


“Don’t waste your time trying to explain to people committed to misunderstanding you.”


“There are many buyers, sellers, and advisors who don’t make the same mistakes twice. They do it more than that.”

Such as: Missed opportunities (which can be the biggest error of all).
