    It is impossible to get the timing of anything exactly right. You have to ask yourself, 'Are you a speculator or an investor?' we are investors and we believe it is a pretty good period to start nibbling on Treasuries.

  3. Ray Dickinson:

    It was all right to talk about it. They made plans. They had a moment's vision, a fleeting dream. But in the end, some lack in their moral fiber, some gnawing, nibbling fear held them back. They never started. They stayed where they were. They dropped back. They failed somehow to release within themselves that power which lies in every individual, and is released only when he starts forward in a straight line for the object about which he has dreamed. The man who never starts, never feels that sense of power.
