G.K. Chesterton Talks Stocks

An apt G.K. Chesterton quote which I’ve seen in a number of financial presentations lately:

“The real trouble with this world of ours is not that it is an unreasonable world, nor even that it is a reasonable one. The commonest kind of trouble is that it is nearly reasonable, but not quite. Life is not an illogicality; yet it is a trap for logicians. It looks just a little more mathematical and regular than it is; its exactitude is obvious, but its inexactitude is hidden; its wildness lies in wait.”
       – from Orthodoxy (1909)

  1. And then of course there is my personal favorite somewhat related quote from John Maynard Keyes:
    “Markets can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.”
