Omaha 2010

I went to the Berkshire shareholders' meeting this May and I'm glad I finally made the trip after putting it off for a few years for no apparent reason. It was a fruitful experience.

Buffett and Munger are really worth flying 12,000km to see in person. They made the meeting an intense yet fun wisdom sharing experience for anyone who wishes to learn. It's like being near a knowledge fountain on a fully open tap. You'd surprised at times they also taught you how to be a good person and lead a meaningful life. I hope I've become wiser after this meeting.

In the end, I'll leave two quotes from each of them.

"Most people do not have the temperament to be investing their own money."

"In my whole life, I've known no wise people who didn't read all the time - none, zero."

And this is the last post on this blog about investment.

p.s. you can google for the complete script of the shareholders' meeting. there may even be translated versions. the flash spot in the photo is where Buffett was at before the meeting began.
