Warren Buffett, in his 2011 letter to investors, defined investing as “the transfer to others the purchasing power now with the reasoned expectation of receiving more purchasing power – after taxes have been paid on nominal gains – in the future.” What’s important to remember is “It’s not the dollar value of your investment returns that count. It’s how much your investments increase or decrease your spending power after you’ve paid taxes.” -Chris Hunter B&P Briefing

“We operate from a level of liquidity that no one else does.  We don’t want to operate on bank lines.” –Warren Buffett

It is amazing how the greatest investor alive understands the necessity of keeping money in a liquid (easily accessible/available) position, knowing there will come hard times; yet most people strap themselves to the bank with high levels of debt.  It is imperative to build a private reserve from which cash can be obtained in hard times.

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” – Warren Buffett
