Warren Buffett Quotes

"Winter preserves and strengthens a tree.
Rather than expending its strength on the
exterior surface, its sap is forced deeper and
deeper into its interior depth.  In winter, a tougher
more resilient life is firmly established.  
Winter is necessary for the tree to survive and flourish."
                                                           Richard Foster from his book, Prayer

"When a razor has seen long service
and refuses to hold an edge, the barber lays it away for a
few weeks, and the edge comes back of its own
accord.  We bestow thoughtful care
upon inanimate objects, but none upon ourselves.
What a robust people, what a nation of thinkers
we must be, if we would only lay ourselves
on the shelf occasionally to renew our edges."
                       Mark Twain

"Somehow myself survived the night
And entered with
the Day. . . .
 Emily Dickinson

"Abba Poeman said concerning Abba Prior that
every day he
made a new beginning"
The Sayings of the Desert Fathers
