  Warren Buffett is the current richest investor in the world. And he ranks
No.2 among the world’s billionaires.
          沃伦巴菲特是目前世界上最有钱的投资人,也是全球第2富有的富翁。
          But, compared to his money, it’s those famous quotes of his that attract
the public’s attention.
          不过,与他的钱相比,他的名言往往才是大众关注的重点。
          Though most people now see his words as jokes or anti chicken soup for the
souls.
          虽然现在很多人都把他的话当做笑谈,或者是毒鸡汤。
          But I find his words really inspiring.
          但我觉得,他说过的很多话真的很有道理。
          And the one sentence which impressed me the most is the following:
          而让我印象最深的一句就是这句:
          Once you have ordinary intelligence, what you need is the temperament to
control the urges that get other people into trouble in investing.
          如果你的智商平平,那你需要的就是控制那些让一般人投资失败的欲望。
          The No. 1 reason why most people fail to save is failing in controlling
their desire.
          大部分人存钱失败的根本原因,就是控制不了自己的欲望。
          Desire makes you irrational.
          欲望让人变得不理性。
          And that’s exactly who I was.
          而这就是从前的我。
          Did I really need to drink a 30 RMB coffee just for several minutes’ worth
of vibe?
          我真的需要为了那几分钟的气氛而去花30块喝一杯咖啡吗?
          Did I really need all those new garments every month?
          我真的需要每个月买这么多新衣服吗?
          What did they bring me?
          它们最终给我带来了什么?
          They only brought me poverty.
          它们给我带来了贫穷。
          And the people who are behind these businesses have made money through my
stupidity.
          而那些在背后经营这些生意的人,则从我的愚蠢中赚到了钱。
