Was reading some investment related material today, but realized quickly that it was excellent life advice as well.
- While size matters, what matters more is character. The latter helps create sustainable value.
- More than the present size (of the investee company), what matters is what size it will become.
- There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac Newton was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less. (Bertrand Russell)
Some good food for thought, don’t you think?
