I read Nassim Taleb's book The Bed of Procrustes.
Taleb, author of The Black Swan, is one of the smartest thinkers around, and one of the best writers to boot -- a rare combination.
The Bed of Procrustes is a list of hundreds of short quotes and aphorisms about life, money, politics, and business. Here are 12 that stood out to me as particuarly smart.
This is why it's easier to get rich than it is to feel rich.
But let me guess, you don't believe that's true?
The best investors know exactly what they don't know.
This is why punditry is so embarrassing.
Go buy the book here. It's great.
