Quote of the Day

I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self-respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.

Happy birthday, Warren Buffett! 

The Berkshire Hathaway CEO turns 86-years-old today. 

He’s worth an estimated $61,000,000,000 — That means he’s earned about $2 million for every single day that he’s been alive. That’s a lot of dough, but the third richest man in the world doesn’t measure his success monetarily. Instead, Buffett measures success by how many people love him: “If you get to my age in life and nobody thinks well of you, I don’t care how big your bank account is, your life is a disaster. That’s the ultimate test of how you have lived your life.” Spoken like a true billionaire.
