    The one thing I really like about the big W.B. is that he doesn’t flaunt it. It is so refreshing to see someone who is internally content and instead of flaunting his wealth uses it to benefit others.

    I like that about him too. I think that he’s a guy that anyone could talk to and be comfortable. You could be a waitress at hooters or the President of the United States… I bet Warren would still the same witty caring guy.

    What I’m impressed with is his drive. He always said he know he would be rich from a very young age. And he stuck to it! I bet he didn’t foresee himself being one of the richest people in the U.S. though :)

    I also like that he stuck with people he knows… He could have outgrown them and live in some posh location, but he doesn’t. He still goes to his favorite restaurant in Nebraska, and talks to the people that know and love him. In ways, he’s very much like the Benjamin Franklin of our times (minus the inventing of stuff and politics).

    Love that last quote about the tree, and shade! Thanks for reminding us.

    Actually, thanks for reminding me about Warren again… you ever check his town hall at Columbia U out with CNBC and Bill? So sweet!

    I was pretty excited when CNBC had that Warren and Bill at Columbia special!

    I really like watching Warren Buffett speak! He is such an witty American icon, and is flows so naturally for him!

    Followed your link and you have some great quotes from the interview! Good to see you are a fan of Warren’s too!:)

    I agree, Buffett is a legend. Another thing I like about him is he’s old! A good inspiration – perhaps all that reading company reports and looking forward to 20 years of long-term compound interest growth gives your body a reason to push on? ;-)

      Yeah, and still, he’s as sharp as they come! An inspiration for us all to keep our minds fit! Apparently the mental workouts he goes through to select companies has kept him sharp. That, and possible the bridge card game that he enjoys playing so much (Buffett got Gates hooked too)…
