    The only rule, is never followed anymore. Don't spend more than you take in. That's all you need to know. Anyone can be a Warren Buffett the thing is, hardly anyone wants to work hard. All I see are excuses, some of them so lame it's actually funny. Morgan Freeman says anyone can be successful, there are always buses leaving. I see too, so many young people having no direction. They tie themselves down before they can even live. Not all people can be a Warren Buffett but you don't have to be. He is mortal as anyone else. Yet I sense Saikat thinks he is not. What kind of rubbish is that? Telling readers they have no chance in the second rule? Instead of inspiring it's doom and gloom. No, doom and gloom sells.... Hardly ever do I see a positive piece like "be like Warren Buffett". Nope it's Warren Buffett is immortal and you have no chance to do anything with your life. The people have to pay big money to tell them don't spend more money than you take in? lol Okay, so I'm a grump in the morning. LOL

      Ha..ha. Chuck. Can't say I disagree with you. The Warren Buffett quote is just for effect that kicks off the article. He is a mortal and he isn't the only guy who knows how to manage money. We don't quote George Soros or John Bogle as much as we quote W.B. Or, the millions of silent millionaires who work hard, save carefully, and live within their means around the world.
