For over 30 years, I have collect quotes. It’s a great hobby since it is easy to start or stop, the cost is minimal, and I value the message whether related to investing, retirement, or daily life.

My collection includes about 1,300 quotes from 775 people. Some of the most interesting quotes represent that person’s sole contribution, while others, such as Mark Twain, are quite prolific. The contributors include politicians, philosophers, business leaders, sport celebrities, actors, and others. Many of these people were unknown to me until I came across their quote.

Do you have a favorite quote? Here are five of my favorites:

  • “It’s remarkable how much you have to learn to find out how little you need to know.” – Jason Zwieg
  • “If everything is under control, you’re going too slow.” – Mario Andretti
  • “The art of leadership is saying no, not yes. It is very easy to say yes.” – Tony Blair
  • “Unless you’re ashamed of yourself now and then, you’re not honest.” – William Faulkner
  • “If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it.” – Andy Rooney
