"I constantly see people rise in life who are not the smartest -- sometimes not even the most diligent. But they are learning machines; they go to bed every night a little wiser than when they got up. And, boy, does that habit help, particularly when you have a long run ahead of you." ~ Charlie Munger (Guru of Warren Buffet - The Legendary Investor and World's Richest Man)
