If you do not allow love into your heart, then evil is going to live there pretty soon.

Peter Ustinov from Death on the Nile


Give me learning sir and you may keep your black bread

Leo Tolstoy


Never hurry another mans cattle




This Egyptian money really grosses me out



The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China. If we spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs. If we buy a computer it will go to India. If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. If we purchase a good car it will go to Germany. If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in US. I've been doing my part. 

Marc Faber


I hate to see a thing done by halves; If it be right, do it boldly; if it be wrong leave it undone



Inferior people look for improvements in others; Superior people look to improve themselves



It is an old observation that wise men grow usually wiser, fools more foolish.



To repel ones cross is to make it heavier



The rewards of duty are not rest from labour, but greater tasks.



The thirst for gold hath made men demons



Most of the shadows in our life are caused by standing in our own sunshine



By six qualities may a fool be known;

Anger; without cause; Speech  without profit; Change; without motive;

Inquiry without an object; Trust in a stranger; and incapacity to distinguish between friend and foe.



Don't speak of what you are going to do; do it.



In character, in manners, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.



The best preparation for the future is the present well seen to, the last duty well done.



Confidence is the secret of strength



Sorrow is the mere rust of the soul, activity will cleanse and brighten it

Dr S Johnson


All women are brain damage        

WJ Babbington  Colegrave arms public house


The problem with a good investment is that you don't know it is good one until afterwards.



The depth of your immaturity is measured by your belief in tragedy

R Bach


THEY are slaves who fear to speak for the fallen and the weak;

They are slaves who will not choose Hatred, scoffing, and abuse, Rather than in silence shrink from from the truth they needs must think;

They are slaves who dare not be In the right with two or three.




I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being.
Theodore Roosevelt



“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt



Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
Theodore Roosevelt


If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress.
Barack Obama


Hypocrites pretend to be righteousness, but inwardly are full of evil intentions towards others. They see their neighbour's faults very clearly, and are quick to criticize and make destructive comments. To such individuals Jesus says: "You hypocrites, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye" (Matthew 7:5). Such people exist and we need to be on our guard against them, and take steps to protect ourselves. In difficult situations, do we keep careful records of the facts to make sure that evidence is always available to defend ourselves against such critics should the need arise?



When you say that you agree with a thing in principle you mean that you have not the slightest intention of carrying it out in practice. 

Otto von Bismarck


Hypocrite: the man who murdered both his parents... pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan.  ~

Abraham Lincoln


A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
William Shakespeare


Being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery.
William Shakespeare


Knowledge is destroyed by association with the base: With equals, equality is achieved: With the distinguished: distinction



Let no-one think  lightly of evil, saying in his heart, 'It will not come near me.' Drop by drop a pot becomes full of water, as the the fool becomes full of evil, gathering it little by little.



He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes.

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.


Jealousy, tis a monster, begot upon itself. born on itself


If you monitor the hall of others, then expect them to monitor yours

R Medcalf


With a thief to the gallows, for though he go as
softly as foot can fall, he thinks himself too soon there.

Shakespeare (As you like it)


An ideal may seem unattainable, but when it is distinctly acknowledged as the object of aspiration,

it will be found close at hand.


Modesty's the charm that coldest hearts can quickest warm,

which all our best affections gains and gaining, ever still retains.



Be as careful of the books you read as of the company you keep;

For your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former

as by the latter.

R Hood


He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom and will discover the flaw

long after he has forgotten the cause of it.

H W Bucher


If you would have a happy family life, remember two things;

In matters of principle, stand like a rock;

in matters of taste swim with the current.

  • Futures, Forex and Stock trading contain substantial risk and are not for every investor.

  • An investor could potentially lose all or more of the initial investment.

  • Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle.

  • Only risk capital should be used for trading

  • Only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading.

  • Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.












Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
