他補充說：“完全正確地投放市場並不是一件容易的事。” “我知道很多[交易員]在正確的時機是正確的，並在價格處於應該顯示最大利潤的水平時開始買賣股票。他們的經驗始終與我的經驗一樣；就是說，他們沒有從中賺錢。 [交易員]既可以判市正確又可以等待的很少見。我發現它是最難學習的東西之一。但是隻有在股票操作員牢牢掌握了這一點之後，他才能賺大錢。”
“After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: it never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It was always my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!
“It is no trick at all to be right on the market,” he adds. “I’ve known many [traders] who were right at exactly the right time, and began buying or selling stocks when prices were at the very level that should show the greatest profit. And their experience invariably matched mine; that is, they made no real money out of it. [Traders] who can both be right and sit tight are uncommon. I found it one of the hardest things to learn. But it is only after a stock operator has firmly grasped this that he can make the big money.”
