“If you’re going to live a long time, you have to keep learning—what you formerly knew is never enough.

Frank Martin

"You should learn a bit more every cycle - if you don't your business isn't vibrant." Jeffrey Ubben

“There is an optionality that people don’t understand.  Optionality means to pursue things you are interested in because the optionality is really high.  You need to pay some premium, time, expense to learn.  Often getting to the right place is not saying I know its going to happen, its saying this looks like a place I should be going towards.”  John Burbank

"I constantly see people rise in life who are not the smartest, sometimes not even the most diligent, but they are learning machines.

Charlie Munger

“The investing industry should be approached with the goal of lifelong learning and an understanding that you’re compounding your knowledge over time. It’s important to keep in mind that the industry lives on an exponential curve.

Grow to embrace, or even love, the plateaus.” Jeff Mueller

"Just keep accumulating knowledge. That’s one of the beauties of the business that Charlie and I are in, is that everything is cumulative. The stuff I learned when I was 20 is useful today.

“Do case studies. Deeply study the best and worst investments in history. Even better, do it with a bunch of friends. Learn in clusters. This business is about pattern recognition.
