Quote of the Day: Logic

Monday, September 24, 2007 | 03:30 PM

"The real trouble with this world of ours is not that it is an unreasonable world, nor even that it is a reasonable one. The commonest kind of trouble is that it is nearly reasonable, but not quite. Life is not an illogicality; yet it is a trap for logicians.

"It looks just a little more mathematical and regular than it is; its exactitude is obvious, but its inexactitude is hidden; its wildness lies in wait."

- G. K. Chesterton

Very astute observation, and completely applicable to the stock market . . .
