[Quote No.25963] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"Teachers should be given salaries, which enable them to live comfortably. Their enormous contribution to society should be recognized with public honors. I have urged that ‘Oscars’ be awarded annually to our most deserving teachers. Some such tangible honor is certainly as appropriate as the prizes that are awarded regularly to actors and actresses, writers, ball players, and so many others." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.26015] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"This test of our ability to govern ourselves is really three-fold. First, it is a test of values, of what things we will give up in order to make [other more important] things secure. Second, it is a test of our reasoning powers, of whether we have the wit to think our problems through to an effective solution. Third, it is a test of self-discipline, of our ability to stand by our values [to put first things first] and see our policies [decisions] through, whatever the personal cost." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.26017] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"I believe in reason not because of the wisdom that men [and women] have demonstrated in the past but because it remains man’s best tool for governing himself. It is not mere chance that, whenever society is swept by some madness, reason falls as the first victim. Neither perfection nor utopia is within man’s grasp. But if the frenzy of soaring hope can never be realized, we can also avoid the panic of plunging despair – if we learn to think our problems through, decide what it is that we value most, and organize ourselves – both as individuals and as a nation [and world] – to see that first things come first." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.26016] Need Area: Mind > Focus
"It is also important to make certain that our efforts are directed at the decisive core of the problem and not distracting side issues. The more complex the difficulties we face, the more important it becomes to bear this in mind, for it is human nature to try to evade what we cannot cope with...How often have we been struck by the petty bickering that people engage in when confronted with the gravest sort of crisis...Periodically we should ask ourselves if our efforts are focused upon the crux of the problem – the things that must be settled if there is to be a manageable solution – or if we are extending our energies on side issues which cannot yield a decision, no matter what the outcome." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25979] Need Area: Mind > Progress
"After each major undertaking – and particularly when things had turned sour – I would... go off to some quiet place where I could review what I had done and where I had gone wrong. At such times I never sought to excuse myself but was concerned with solely guarding against a repetition of the same error. Periodic self-examination of this sort is something all of us need, in both private and government affairs...[because] the more we know of our own [successes and] failings, the easier it becomes to understand other people and why they act as they do." - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.25996] Need Area: Mind > Progress
"When misfortune overtakes us, all of us are prone to blame someone else if we can, and usually we think we can. This instinct for the preservation of self-esteem is one of the more deep-seated traits of human nature. [But a more sensible approach is to see how we contributed so that we can change our behavior and character and so do better next time. Then the misfortune is turned into the opportunity to grow and the negative becomes a positive.]" - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

"[Self-Defence and Martial Arts:] I have always done some physical exercising, which undoubtedly has helped me stay in good health. But the main benefit I drew from my boxing was the ability to control my temper and the added self-confidence I drew from my improved physique. I have been told – and I agree – that it is easier to be conciliatory and understanding when you know that, if this fails, you will be there with the sock." - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.25997] Need Area: Money > Income
"The profit motive is also an invaluable tool of individual freedom. What causes men [and women] to work? There are three general inducements: the love of one’s labor or the desire to be of service to others; the desire for profit and gain; and the fact that people are forced to work by some higher authority. Where the appeal to man’s desire to better his lot is active in a society, less force is needed than where this incentive is lacking." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25949] Need Area: Money > Invest
"The 1920’s was, among other things, the era of the New Economics, which could best be described as a system in which everything on the charts of business activity was supposed to go up and nothing was supposed to go down. Experience, as well as common sense, showed that this could not be. Yet, in the overheated atmosphere of the great boom, few questioned it seriously. Indeed, it was difficult not to be caught up in the whirl...[of, as it would turn out, unjustifiably high consumer and business confidence which resulted in the 1929 Stock Market Crash]" - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25948] Need Area: Money > Invest
"There is not much difference, really, between the squirrel laying up nuts and the man laying up money. Like the squirrel, the man – at least at the start – is trying to provide for his basic needs. I don’t know much about squirrels, but I think they know when they have enough nuts, and I’m sure they don’t gamble away what they have accumulated. In this, they are superior to men, who [especially when they buy and sell shares] often don’t know when they have enough [profit], and frequently gamble away what they do have [by being greedy and taking too great a risk] in the empty hope of getting more." - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.25950] Need Area: Money > Invest
"[In 1926] A full three years before the [1929] crash I wrote to Mark Sullivan: ‘Now let me make a prediction to you. Business has undoubtedly reached its zenith, and what we see in motors, steel, and railroad [balance and income] statements, is evidence of what has gone by and not of what is before us. There has been a stimulation of business by high-power salesmanship on the partial payment plan [too easy credit and loans] of homes, radios, automobiles, etc. Whereas it is wise to buy things on the partial payment plan that will result in time in increased economies [i.e. – produce income or save money] and better living, at the same time it can be overdone. I am afraid it has now been overdone... " - Bernard Baruch

"Whenever some cool, calm voice [of reason] like Carter Glass’s was raised against this madness [of excessive optimism], it was jeered. Whenever the market fell back – and there were some sharp setbacks on occasion – from every quarter would come the chorus that all was well. Unfailingly, the prophets of the New Economics in government and finance promoted the boom and nourished public confidence in it [foolishly as it would turn out]." - Bernard Baruch

"Nothing did more to spur the boom in stocks [before the 1929 Stock Market Crash] than the decision made by the New York Federal Reserve Bank, in the spring of 1927, to cut the rediscount rate [of interest]...this easy money policy...was to cause a re-evaluation of all securities [price to earnings ratios] and to further inflate our already inflationary credit system by making large sums of money available for financing [still more] stock speculation." - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.25954] Need Area: Money > Invest
"...the boom [in stocks late in the 1920’s] had to end [but] none knew when the expected break [bust, crash] would come. Hugh Johnson was associated with me in various business ventures at this time, and I remember telling him to keep close watch on automobile sales and on construction statistics. These were the segments of the economy primarily dependent on the credit-inflation boom. When they began to slip, we would know that the whole structure was in danger...my advice was to pull out of speculative situations, get out of debt and put one’s funds into sound bonds...I myself was doing as I advised. By 1928, I had begun to liquidate my stock holdings and to put my money into bonds and into a cash reserve...I always like to have some hard cash around, especially in times of trouble. [The crash came in October, 1929.]" - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25955] Need Area: Money > Invest
"...I began to sell everything I could, in anticipation of the break I now felt to be imminent [in the stock market]. This was near the end of September [a month before the crash started]. The condition of the market could be measured by its wild fluctuations [volatility], followed by assurances from every direction that all was well. But I had heard this lullaby before. I knew that the [momentum and self-fulfilling expectation] continuity of confidence was beginning to break. The market continued to fall and rally. Then, suddenly, there were no more rallies. There was instead, a final cataclysmic break that began on Wednesday, October 23rd [1929], when a premonitory plunge sent a shudder of apprehension through Wall Street. On the next day, Black Thursday, the plunge became a descent so terrifying that panic swept the floor of the Exchange, by that time a frantic madhouse...when stocks went begging without buyers, no matter what the price. The descent continued that week and next...but still the plunge continued – deeper and deeper...[by mid-November] The value of stocks had declined by more than thirty percent...And this was only the beginning – worse was to come." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

"Who and what were to blame for the [1929 Stock Market Crash and the] collapse of the tinsel structure of our prosperity? Rarely has there been so much blame to share among so many. Government leaders, for one, were to blame for a long series of erroneous policies...Bankers and brokers were responsible for the collapse, too...Yet, in the last analysis, it was the public which was chiefly responsible for its own undoing. The stock market boom was a classic example of the madness of crowds...In economics there seems to be a cyclical rhythm to these movements. A bull market will be galloping along and then, suddenly, something will occur – trivial or important – to break the continuity of thought [the greedy, self-fulfilling expectancy driving the market’s momentum]. And then [fear and] panic sets in. [and the boom busts]" - Bernard Baruch

[Quote No.25957] Need Area: Money > Invest
"Depths and heights are inevitable in any economy, and they are of course in direct ratio to each other. If we wish to escape the pit of depression, we must stay of the inflationary heights. We must learn to scale down the mountain of boom and fill in the valley of bust, so that economic progress can be achieved at a sure and steady pace. But if, for whatever reason, we succumb to some economic madness [for example too easy credit for too long], we will surely let ourselves in for trouble. And, as in 1929 [Stock Market Crash], we shall have only ourselves to blame." - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’.

[Quote No.25958] Need Area: Money > Invest
"All economic movements, by their very nature, are motivated by crowd psychology. Graphs and business ratios are, of course, indispensable in our groping efforts to find dependable rules to guide us...Yet I never see a brilliant economic thesis expounding, as though they were geometrical theorems, the mathematics of price movements, that I do not recall Schiller’s dictum: ‘Anyone taken as an individual, is tolerably sensible and reasonable – as a crowd, he at once becomes a blockhead,’...Without due recognition of crowd thinking (which often seems crowd-madness) our theories of economics leave much to be desired. It is a force wholly impalpable – perhaps little amenable to analysis and less to guidance – and yet, knowledge of it is necessary to right judgements on passing events. [especially share market events]" - Bernard Baruch
(1870 – 1965), Famous American financier, stockbroker, share market investor, statesman. He wrote two autobiographies - the first about his Wall Street career called, ‘Baruch - My Own Story’ and a second about his years in public service called, ‘Baruch – The Public Years’. Quoted from the forward of a reissue of Charles Mackay’s, ‘Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds’ after the 1929 Stock Market Crash.
