„In the stock market you do not base your decisions on what the market is doing, but on what you think is rational.“

—  Warren Buffett American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist 1930

Contexto: I wouldn't mind going to jail if I had three cellmates who played bridge. … The approach and strategies [of bridge and stock investing] are very similar. In the stock market you do not base your decisions on what the market is doing, but on what you think is rational. With bridge, you need to adhere to a disciplined bidding system. While there is no one best system, there is one that works best for you. Once you choose a system, you need to stick with it.

„I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.“

—  Tom Watson American businessman 1874 - 1956

Often dated to 1943. Thorough research of Watson's writings and statements have produced no example of him saying this. It appears to be a corruption of a remark by Howard Aiken that four or five computers could meet all of the United Kingdom's computing needs. See Ralph Keyes (2006), The Quote Verifier.
