Warren Buffet Still a Voice to be Heard

Warren Buffett
One of the problems men (and women) encounter as they age is the perception that nobody cares what they have to say any more.

Warren Buffet doesn't have that problem.  As one of the richest men in the World, his opinion about things financial and economic is closely listened to, and will be until his last breath, when he will probably utter some profound saying that will go into the history books.

Not only has he been a success, he is also intelligent and witty.  The Warren Buffet Facebook page contains several observations that we could all learn from.

One example:  "If you have been playing poker for half an hour and you still don't know who the patsy is, you're the patsy...."  Here is another example that I like: "Price is what you pay. Value is what you get...."

Now 80-years-old (born in 1930), he is worth billions of dollars and plans to give most of it away, a substantial portion of that philanthropy will go to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as being the best vehicle for distribution of large sums of wealth to the most worthy causes and having the greatest benefit.
