Charlie Munger:

"We get these questions a lot from the enterprising young. It’s a very intelligent question: You look at some old guy who’s rich and you ask, ‘How can I become like you, except faster?”

"There’s an occasional perfect knave who succeeds pretty well with money, but that kind of success reminds me of what Pope Urban said about Cardinal Richelieu.

He said, “If there is a God, Cardinal Richelieu has much to answer for. But if there is no God, he’s done rather well.”

BUFFETT: At 86 you can afford to wait.

MUNGER: I must think about the long term. I’m going to miss you terribly.

BUFFETT: Touché.

MUNGER: Reminds me of the husband who asked: "Will you love me if I lose all my money?” She replied: "I'll always love you and miss you terribly.”
